Earlier, Priyanka Gandhi slammed the BJP over the recovery of EVMs from the vehicle of a BJP candidate in Assam.

Priyanka Gandhi said: “Every time there is an election videos of private vehicles caught transporting EVM’s show up. Unsurprisingly they have the following things in common:

  1. The vehicles usually belong to BJP candidates or their associates.
  2. The videos are taken as one off incidents and dismissed as aberrations.
  3. The BJP uses its media machinery to accuse those who exposed the videos as sore losers.

The fact is that too many such incidents are being reported and nothing is being done about them. The EC needs to start acting decisively on these complaints and a serious re-evaluation of the use of EVM’s needs to be carried out by all national parties.”

Priyanka Gandhi further tweeted: “Election Commission’s vehicle broke down and out of the blue another vehicle comes to the rescue. The vehicle belongs to a BJP candidate. And our innocent election officials take a ride in that vehicle.

“Dear EC, What’s the matter? Can you come up with a clarification in this issue?”
