Who is responsible for adding insult to his injury?

In a rare situation where the electorate got sharply polarized between the two main political parties, the Flame party too fared poorly at the recent polls.  But what had hurt the Field Marshal more was the denial of his right to vote at the last election as well.




The Compassionate One soon after taking office restored the civic rights of the persecuted war hero.  But his name is yet to be restored in the electors’ register.

The Flame leader who had been busy with electioneering had discovered that he had not received the polling card only on the Election Day morning. He had immediately sent a written request to the Elections Commissioner through his lawyer to register his name as an elector to enable him to cast his vote before the curtain comes down on the polling. However, the EC had not been able to do the needful due to certain legal snags, they say.

By the way, the Field Marshal could not exercise his franchise at the 2010 Presidential poll too though he was the common opposition candidate.
