Day before counting, SP alleges EVM ‘tampering’

LUCKNOW: A day before the counting of votes in Uttar Pradesh, Samajwadi Party on Wednesday alleged that EVMs were being tampered with and party workers increased their vigil outside the strongroom where the machines are kept.
On its Twitter handle, the SP uploaded a video clip of an official who had admitted that protocol had not been followed while transporting the Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) on Tuesday.
However, in the 45 seconds-long video, the official also ruled out the possibility of tampering with the EVMs.
“In many districts, reports of ‘herapheri’ (tampering with) of EVMs is being received (by the party). On whose directives is this happening? Are officers being pressured from the Chief Minister’s Office? EC please clarify this,” the tweet further read.
