Assam: Congress demands probe in EVM controversy, BJP reacts; EC orders repoll

The Election Commission on Friday ordered a repoll at a polling booth in the Ratabari seat of Assam after a controversy broke out over the presiding officer carrying the EVM after polling in a vehicle that belonged to the wife of a BJP candidate contesting from a neighboring seat. In a statement, the EC said the presiding officer and three other officials have been placed under suspension. Congress leader from Assam Sushmita Dev demanded immediate disqualification of the BJP candidate. "This is a criminal act and we demand immediate disqualification of the candidate. This is clear that the BJP is losing in Assam that is why it is using illegal means to win the elections, which is unacceptable," said Dev. BJP said that they have complete faith in the Election Commission. Watch the full video for more details.
