Congress resorts to vandalism after crushing defeat in Jind bypoll, raises the ‘EVM tampering’ bogey

Virender Jaglan, polling agent of Congress candidate Randeep Singh Surjewala alleged that there were irregularities in 2-3 EVM machines and demanded that there should be recounting of votes in those EVMs where mismatch had occurred. 

As Congress party realised that their candidate Randeep Singh Surjewala is set to lose the important Jind by-polls in Haryana, the workers of the Congress party took to the streets to protest against the election results while raising doubts regarding EVM tampering.

According to Times Now, Congress workers created ruckus after embarrassing results in the Jind by-polls, where senior Congress leader and close aide of Rahul Gandhi, Randeep Singh Surjewala was pushed to humiliating third position. As soon as the Congress workers recognised that the party’s contest was over, they resorted to vandalism while also claiming that there was an ‘EVM-fraud’.

Reportedly, counting of votes was also stopped for a while after opposition parties raised doubts of EVM tampering and claimed that there was some mismatch in the number of votes during the counting process. Some workers belonging to the opposition parties held the protests while alleging that the electronic voting machines (EVMs) had been tampered with.
