It seems that the prediction made by all the exit polls regarding the return of the BJP in Gujarat once again has started rattling even Hardik Patel, the Patidar leader who till yesterday was boasting of Congress bagging around 100 seats in the state Assembly elections.
Expressing doubts over the credibility of the Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs), the Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti (PAAS) leader today said that the issue should not be brushed aside.
“EVM malfunction…don’t laugh at this question. A debate is necessary on this issue in an independent, democratic Hindustan. The electorate is worried even after casting vote over whether the vote has gone to the right candidate. Everybody should think over it,” he tweeted.
He also pointed out that though the EVMs ensure quick counting of votes, the machines are kept inside strong rooms for many days. He cited the example of Himachal Pradesh Assembly elections where the EVM machines have been lying in strong rooms for over a month now.
