Kejriwal accuses Punjab officials of moving EVMs
New Delhi, Feb 13 (IANS) Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday accused some officials of trying to move Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) from a strong room in Punjab where polling was held on February 4.
“This is absolutely shocking. Punjab officials trying to remove EVM machines,” Kejriwal tweeted.
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader also posted a video showing some men opening and moving boxes which appeared to be containing EVMs.
“Officers entered strong room on the pretext of taking some papers but started removing EVMs,” Kejriwal added.
Kejriwal’s reaction came in response to another tweet claiming that the Returning Officer in Ludhiana “allowed four people to enter the strong room where EVMs were kept”.
AAP leader Sanjay Singh said he had asked the Chief Election Commissioner and other officials to take “strict action” in the matter.
