Patidar leader Hardik Patel today blamed EVM tampering for Congress poor show and BJP’s victory in Gujarat.
Hardik said that there has been tampering with EVMs in Surat, Rajkot and Ahmedabad, hence the gap is very less wherever tampering happened.
Patel had said the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) would lose in Gujarat Assembly election if elections had been conducted in a fair manner.
Reiterating his allegations that Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) have been tampered with, the Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti convener said, “ATMs have been hacked, so it is obvious that EVMs can be hacked as well. I have said it repeatedly that if there are some seats where victory margin is 1200-1500 votes then it is due to sabotaged EVMs.”
Hardik Patel has alleged that a company had hired 140 engineers to hack 5,000 EVMs. The Ahmedabad collector, however, rubbished the allegations as “baseless”.
Besides Patel, the Congress has also made similar allegations against BJP.
