Sandeep Saxena, deputy election commissioner, told TOI the law doesn’t permit anyone to include his name after the last date. “It has been conveyed to the chief electoral officer of Karnataka that nothing can be done now,” he added.
After TOI reported that Dravid couldn’t vote, Domlur and Mathikere’s sub-divisional assistant electoral returning officers met him at his residence and accepted a fresh Form 6 along with a requisition letter seeking permission to vote in Bengaluru North constituency.
On Monday, Karnataka’s Chief Electoral Officer Sanjiv Kumar submitted a report to the CEC about how Dravid had missed enrolment as a voter along with his requisition letter. Kumar met Dravid at his residence on Tuesday afternoon and told him he won’t be able to vote.
Though Dravid was keen to vote on April 18, he can’t do so as he failed to submit the Form 6 for inclusion of his name as a voter before March 16, the last date for enrolment. His name was deleted from his previous address since he moved to a new house in RMV Extension after his brother submitted Form 7, meant for deletion.
