New Delhi, Dec 7: Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Friday alerted party workers to be vigilant in Rajasthan and Telangana saying ” In Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s India, the EVMs have mysterious powers”.
“Congress party workers, be vigilant after polls close today. In MP, EVM’s behaved strangely after polling. Some stole a school bus and vanished for 2 days! Others slipped away and were found drinking in a hotel”, Gandhi tweeted.
The Congress Chief attacked the Prime Minister stating “In Modi’s India, the EVMs have mysterious powers, Stay alert”.
Gandhi’s tweet was in reference to the incident in Madhya Pradesh’s Sagar where electronic voting machines were transported in a vehicle without any registration number and reached the collection centre 48 hours after the voting concluded.
In another incident, two polling officers were “found drunk” along with EVMs inside a hotel owned by a Bharatiya Janata Party functionary.
