Gujarat Polls: EVMs are tampered: Hardik

Congress knocks SC's door over VVPAT slips counting

Patidar leader Hardik Patel yesterday reiterated his doubts over the reliability of the Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs), claiming they can be hacked and which was why the margin between the winning and losing candidates in the Gujarat Assembly elections was less in some constituencies.

Mumbai Congress chief Sanjay Nirupam on said the BJP's victory in Gujarat was not because of the people in the state but because of EVMs. Patel announced that he would continue his stir to get OBC status for Patels.

The Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti (PAAS) leader, who has aligned with the Congress in Gujarat, has alleged that the EVMs were rigged in constituencies that witnessed a close fight.

Hardik Patel again escalated his allegations over BJP for EVM tampering in Gujarat after the results. According to him, the atmosphere is such that no one can question the functioning of the EVMs. "It means there is something wrong in it", he said. "Hence, we too have to reject these machines and bring back the ballot paper system". "Look at Japan, Israel, Germany; they still use ballot papers despite having advanced technology", said the PAAS leader.

Ahmedabad collector, Avantika Singh said that if any clarification is to be issued than it will be issued by the Election Commission.

"I still stand by this tweet".

This is not the first time that Patel has raised the point of EVM tampering.

"If the human body created by God can be altered why can't EVMs"?

"If EVMs do not malfunction then BJP will lose the election". In the last assembly elections in the state in 2012, the BJP won 115 seats and the Congress 61.
