Cong Poll: ‘Team Tharoor’ Alleges Serious Irregularities In UP


New Delhi: The campaign team of Congress leader Shashi Tharoor, who conceded defeat to Mallikarjun Kharge on Wednesday in the party presidential poll, had written to the party’s chief election authority, flagging “extremely serious irregularities” in the conduct of the election in Uttar Pradesh, sources said.

Besides demanding that all votes from Uttar Pradesh be deemed invalid, Tharoor’s campaign team had also raised “serious issues” in the conduct of the election in Punjab and Telangana.

In his letter to Central Election Authority chairman Madhusudan Mistry, Tharoor’s chief election agent Salman Soz had said the facts are “damning” and the election process in Uttar Pradesh is “devoid of credibility and integrity”, they said.

He said after a detailed discussion with polling agents, Tharoor’s team is constrained to report “disturbing facts”.
