Upamanyu Hazarika To Take Up EVM Issue With Election Commission of India (ECI)

Upamanyu Hazarika

GUWAHATI: Independent candidate for Gauhati Lok Sabha constituency Upamanyu Hazarika has said that he will pursue the issue of possible EVM tampering in the just-concluded Lok Sabha election with the Election Commission of India (ECI).

Talking to the media in Guwahati on Sunday, Upamanyu Hazarika gave enough hints that the number of votes he polled during the Lok Sabha election is unbelievable. He also doubts the winning BJP candidate polling over 57 per cent of votes in the Gauhati Lok Sabha constituency at a time when the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill has created an anti-BJP wave in the State.

Taking all that into consideration, Hazarika said that he would pursue the issue of EVMs with the Election Commission of India.
