Hajipur: No Electricity at EVM Strongroom For Almost 2 Hours, RJD Leaders to Demand High-level Probe From EC
Power reportedly came back an hour-and-a-half after RJD's Hajipur candidate Shiv Chandra Ram complained to the District Election Officer.
For almost two hours, there was no electricity at the strong room in Hajipur Lok Sabha Constituency, Bihar on the night of Monday, May 20.
Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) Hajipur candidate Shiv Chandra Ram reached the strong room at RS College along with his supporters after receiving the information. He then complained to Hajipur District Election Officer Rajiv Roshan, as per a Prabhat Khabar report.
Electricity reportedly came back back after one and a half hour of the complaint. Meanwhile, Ram and his supporters remained vigilant outside the strong room. He told reporters that EVMs are getting manipulated and changed across the country and the fact that there was no electricity for around one-and-a-half to two hours in the Hajipur strong room was a matter of serious concern.
Ram said that he will complain to the Election Commission as well and ask them to order a high-level inquiry.
