Tharoor cheated and violating the Representation of People Act

As if Shashi Tharoor didn’t have enough to worry about after the controversy over his alleged stakes in the Kochi IPL team erupted, the Communist Party of India (CPI) is planning to move court against him for allegedly forging documents to include his name in the electoral rolls of the Thiruvananthapuram Lok Sabha constituency.

Speaking to Express, P Ramachandran Nair, CPI Thiruvananthapuram district secretary said, “Tharoor got his name in the voters’ list in the constituency using fake documents. We have decided to approach the High Court against Tharoor for cheating and for violating the Representation of People Act.” 
Nair said, “He submitted the application for enrolment the same day (October 27, 2008) he rented a house in Thiruvananthapuram, which means he is not an ordinary resident”. The EC stipulates that only an ordinary resident, one who has resided in a place for a considerable amount of time, can be included in the voters’ list.
