Reacting to BJP’s victory in Gujarat Assembly elections, Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti (PAAS) leader Hardik Patel today said that the BJP’s win is largely on account of the tampering with the Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs).

He pointed out that due to EVM tampering, the winning margin was very less in many places including Surat, Rajkot and Ahmedabad.

“There has been tampering in EVMs in Surat,Rajkot and Ahmedabad, hence the gap is very less wherever tampering happened. EVMs are hackable,” Hardik Patel said.

However, Hardik Patel, who had extended support to the Congress party in these elections, made it clear that he will continue his agitation for reservation to Patidars in government jobs as well as educational institutions.

The BJP is heading towards a clear majority in the Gujarat Assembly with party leading in 99 out of 182-member House. The Congress, however, is giving a neck  to neck to fight with the party winning 80 seats.
