India Today sting: Congress party’s ‘EVM-tampering’ theory fails as party poling agents admit that strongrooms were never breached

The Congress party workers have confirmed that the strongrooms are locked and sealed with signatures of polling agents, and the seals and signatures are intact

The Congress party has once yet again caught up in an embarrassing situation after its claims of EVM tampering during the recent state elections got busted as its party leaders and poll agents are now caught revealing that there was no attempt to influence elections through EVM tampering, rather the Congress party falsely used the issue to try and politicise it to defame BJP, reported India Today.

In a sting conducted by India Today, a Congress party election agent was confronted by a reporter during the sting operation claimed that there were no attempts to enter the strongroom by members of any political party during the recent blackout in Bhopal on November 30 after a power cut in the area. The Congress had raised concerns and protested over EVM-malfunctioning in Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh.

Sayed Shahid Hussain, Bhopal District general secretary and a polling agent has confirmed in the video that it was just a CCTV failure in the strong room and rejected the charges of EVM tampering. Hussain also admitted that strongroom can never be broken into, as it is sealed and locked in the presence of polling agents and confirmed that seals and signatures are still intact.

He went on to confess that EVM tampering drama was staged by the Congress leaders and said that the party needed an issue against the BJP. He further added that the fake EVM tampering issue benefited the party. Shahid Hussain then admitted that the CCTV inside the strongroom was cut in front of the polling agents with the presence of District administration as against Congress party’s allegation against the commission of allowing EVM tampering.

Munnawar Ali, another polling agent of the Congress party confirmed that the strong room was sealed in front of the candidates and there was no way it could be breached. Ali said that Congress party is creating unnecessary controversy over the issue. He too confirmed that the seals are still intact and their signatures can be seen over the locks leaving no doubts that the strongrooms were never breached in the first place.

Recently, the Chief Electoral officials of the Madhya Pradesh had schooled the members of Congress and AAP after their leaders had indulged in propagating fake news regarding EVM tampering during state elections in Madhya Pradesh.

Jyotiraditya Scindia had written a letter to the Chief Electoral office (CEO) of Madhya Pradesh requesting information on the malfunctioning EVMs and VVPAT machines. Congress and Aam Aadmi Party leaders had come up with ‘EVMs are hacked’ theories during the ongoing assembly elections. Senior Congress leader Ahmed Patel posted a video on Twitter on December hinting at manipulation of EVMs.

Following these speculations and attempts by the Congress to discredit independence of the Election Commission, some journalists had also jumped in to spread an allegation that BJP was trying to manipulate the results of the election by tampering with the EVMs.

The Madhya Pradesh High Court had rejected a petition filed by the Congress party in relation to Electronic Voting Machines (EVM) demanding constitution of a SIT to probe alleged irregularities in handling EVMs during the assembly elections.
