Your on clause  on (e1.obj_name = e2.obj_name) does not provide the uniqueness. There are records in either tables with the duplicate obj_name. You need to fix your data by removing the duplicates or by using a stricter condition in the ON clause. BTW, I can see that the tables are without any primary keys or indexes. It does not look right. You need to start thinking about re-designing it.
