Congress Workers Battle Cold To Save EVMs From Tampering In Chhattisgarh

The Congress party workers, worried about Electronic Voting Machine (EVM) tampering, have stationed themselves in front of the strong rooms — where the machines are stored — in several districts across Chhattisgarh as counting is scheduled for December 11, according to a Dainik Jagran report.
With temperatures dipping in the central state, the workers have resorted to setting up bonfires to keep themselves warm while attempting to protect the democratic process.
From November 21-24, UD Minj of the Kunukuri assembly constituency, sat outside a strong room along with other party workers. Minj told Jagran that the demand for better monitoring of the strong room and securer systems have been underway since the sealing of the machines.
