In yet another incident that shows the desperate attempt by TMC to sabotage the electoral process in West Bengal, four Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) and four voter-verifiable paper audit trail (VVPATs) were found at a Trinamool Congress (TMC) leader’s residence in Uluberia North constituency that goes to polls on Tuesday, April 6.
BJP candidate Chiran Bera said that the EVMs were recovered from TMC leader Gautam Ghosh’s house located in Tulsiberia. He alleged the machines were brought in an election duty car. A ‘Sector 17’ election duty car was parked outside the TMC leader’s house.
The sector officer who was caught red-handed by the villagers there, however, claimed that since it was very late in the night, the central forces had slept off and didn’t open the booth so they went to a relative’s house to sleep which happened to be of a TMC leader.
