Suit against Srirangam Municipality.

Mr. S. Rm. C.T. Ramasami Chettiar, a resident and banker at Tiruvankoil and one of the trustees of Jambukeswaram temple, has filed a suit [in the District Munsiff Court Srirangam, before Mr. K.S. Ramaswami Sastri B.A. B.L.], against the Chairman, Municipal Council, Srirangam, praying for a decree that his name should appear in the Voters’ list of the 3rd Ward and to direct the Defendant to include his name in such list. It is alleged in the plaint that as per election rules he is entitled to exercise all the rights and privileges of a voter and his name should therefore have been included in the list of voters of the ward where he resided and had also a house on which he paid tax. It was further alleged that the defendant had omitted the plaintiff’s name fraudulently and with the express object of seeing that the plaintiff who, the defendant thought, was not generally favouring him was disabled from standing as a candidate for any vacancy in the Council, that the election of the 3rd ward was notified to be held on the 11th instant and that the plaintiff when apprised of the election intended to stand as a candidate and found to his great disappointment that his name was not in the Voters' list, that his name had appeared for the last so many years in the Voters' list and the list of persons eligible to stand as Municipal Councillors, that he was therefore entitled to a declaration that his name should appear in the Voters' list.
