    EC rubbishes Congress' allegation of ‘EVM registering only BJP Votes‘

    By Vikas

    The Election Commission on Saturday rubbished Congress leader Brijesh Kalappa's claim that in a particular polling booth EVM machines were registering only BJP votes and dubbed it "factually wrong".

    Kalappa had earlier tweeted that one of the polling booths in RMV 2nd stage in Bengaluru, the EVM was registering only BJP votes no which party was selected.

    "Something was tweeted, but that problem was never there. It was an EVM malfunction. Claim factually wrong," Karnataka Chief polling officer said.

    Kalappa had even said that they would take up the matter with the Election Commission.

    "There are 5 booths opposite my Parent's apartment at RMV II Stage, Bengaluru. In the 2nd booth, any button pressed registers a vote ONLY to kiwi mele Kamala i.e Kamal ke phool. Angry voters are returning without casting their vote," Kalappa had tweeted.

    "So far we have received 3 complaints of malfunctioning EVM/VVPAT across the State including from Ramanagara, Chamarajpet and Hebbal. The INC is taking up these issues with the EC," he said in another tweet.

    Yesterday, the Election Commission deferred voting in Rajarajeswari Nagar constituency in Bengaluru over the discovery of nearly 10,000 voter IDs at a flat. The BJP has alleged that this is proof the Congress was attempting to manipulate the Karnataka election. Voting had earlier been put off at the Jayanagara seat in Bengaluru after the death of the BJP candidate.
