New Delhi: If Lord Hanuman can have an Aadhaar card, then why can’t a dog have a voter identity card? However, there is a small problem and that is the identity card carrying a dog’s photograph has been issued for a West Bengal voter. A resident of Ramnagar village in Murshidabad, Sunil Karmakar applied for a correction in his voter card. As he was called to collect his corrected voter ID card, he found that instead of his photo, there is a photo of a dog sitting.

“The officer there signed and gave me my voter card but didn’t see the photo. This is playing with my dignity. I will go to the BDO office and request that this should not happen again,” Sunil Karmakar said.
The BDO said that the error has been noticed and corrected and he will get his final ID with the correct photo soon.
“If there is a mistake, it will be corrected. It is not his final voter ID. As far as the dog’s photo is concerned, it might have been done by someone while filing the application online,” BDO Rajarshi Chakraborty said.
No one is ever happy the way they look on their voter ID cards. But this Murshidabad case has taken this to an altogether different level. The only rival of this case probably could be the Aadhaar card of Lord Hanuman which was delivered to a post office in Rajasthan in 2014.
