Pune: While Municipal Commissioner Kunal Kumar claimed that over 35 per cent of voters’ slips have been distributed, a large stash of slips were found abandoned in Janwadi near Basantbahar Residential Society on Saturday.

A social activist and a resident of MHADA Colony in Janwadi, Vishwas Chavan, spotted these abandoned slips on a public bench. He collected the slips and enquired about them with local residents, but they too were unaware as to who the owner of these slips was.

Later, Chavan handed over the undistributed slips to civic officials attached to the Ghole Road Regional Ward Office. “The residents of MHADA Colony and Defence Colony in Janwadi have already decided to boycott the civic elections as the polling booth, which was earlier located near our residential colonies, was shifted two km away from our locality. Moreover, today, we saw the lackadaisical approach of the PMC about distribution of slips, which has frustrated us ever more,” Chavan told Sakal Times.

However, when Kunal Kumar and Satish Kulkarni, who is incharge of the civic elections, were contacted, the latter said that he needed to get details about who abandoned the slips and only would he be able to comment on the matter.

PIC: While the civic elections are just two days away a bunch of undistributed voters’ slip was found abandoned on Saturday in Janwadi. Social activist Vishwas Chavan who found the slips later handed over them to a PMC official at Ghole Road Ward Office.
