Actor Ramesh kanna went one step ahead and posted a selfie video complaining the authorities for being careless. “Is it my fault that my name missed out in the voters list ?? I do have my voter ID and voted for 4 to 5 times in this same booth. As i am leaving to Nagercoil today, I made by presence at 6 o clock in the morning. After making me wait for 1 hour they searched and said that my name was not in the voters list. Like in Sarkar movie, Do I have to make an issue out of this??” the actor asked in the video.
