Delhi Social Welfare Minister Rajendra Pal Gautam on June 8 alleged that the BJP winning as many seats as predicted by its president Amit Shah hinted at an “EVM scam”.
Gautam was speaking at a protest organised by the Samvidhan Bachao Sangharsh Samiti against what it called “rigging” of electronic voting machines in the recent Lok Sabha election.
“The media had said BJP would not get more than 150 seats and NDA would not get more than 200 seats. The fact that BJP got the same number of seats as predicted by Amit Shah hints at an EVM scam. It is a matter of shame,” the AAP minister alleged.…” There was a media report that there were discrepancies in the number of votes polled in 373 seats. The Election Commission should respond,” he said.
