Around 250 residents from Panel 5 of Kalyaninagar-Vadgaonsher constituency have been listed either in Ward No. 2 of Phulenagar-Nagpur Chawl or Ward No. 3 of Vimannagar-Somnathnagar. Interestingly members of the same family have been listed in different wards. This would mean that they have to vote from constituency which they do not belong.
