Congress President Rahul Gandhi urged his party members to be vigilant against “EVM tampering” as voting came to an end in Telangana and Rajasthan on Friday.

Taking to Twitter, Gandhi said, ” Congress party workers, it’s time to be vigilant. In MP, EVMs behaved strangely after polling: Some stole a school bus and vanished for 2 days. Others slipped away & were found drinking in a hotel. In Modi’s India, the EVMs have mysterious powers. Stay alert!”

In his tweet, Gandhi also pointed out alleged EVM malfunctioning during Madhya Pradesh (MP) polls.

The Congress chief was referring to the incident in Madhya Pradesh’s Sagar where electronic voting machines (EVMs) were transported in a vehicle without any registration number and reached the collection centre 48 hours after the voting ended.

In another incident, two polling officers were “found drunk” along with EVMs inside a hotel owned by a Bharatiya Janata Party functionary.

Reporting the incidents to the Election Commission, the Congress on Tuesday had demanded a probe alleging that the BJP was “in collusion with the local administration” in attempting to tamper with EVMs during the November 28 Madhya Pradesh Assembly polls.

Rajasthan and Telangana went to polls in the last bout of state elections this year on Friday. The counting of votes will take place on 11 December.
