Praful Patel, NCP leader said, "EVMs malfunctioning in Bhandara-Gondiya poll. In many big European nations, election commissions have rejected the EVMs and gone back to ballot paper system. SP leader Akhilesh Yadav ji just called me up, he also said 300 EVMs not working in Kairana bypoll."

Earlier, Abhimanyu Kale, District Magistrate confirmed that voting temporarily suspended at 35 polling booths in Bhandara-Gondiya Lok Sabha bypolls due to faulty Electronic Voting Machines.

The BJP had won Bhandara-Gondiya seat in 2014. Nana Patole had defeated NCP leader Praful Patel. The by-election was necessitated in Bhandara-Gondia due to Patole's resignation after a standoff with Prime Minister Narendra Modi. In Bhandara-Gondia, out of 2,149 polling booths, 71 are situated in Naxal-hit areas and 113 are listed as critical.
