EC shd make special rule for people without official indentity

Uttam Kumar Gautam from Allahabad says Election Commission is not giving Identity cards to many dalits living on temporary shelters on the road side. Though these people are living in these areas for a long time but they do not possess any Govt identity like ration card. He says Election commission should make special provision for these people and accept their application for Identity card without any official proof. Gautam Ji can be reached at 09889002043
