Election Commission must take strict action:Amit Shah on Assam EVM row

New Delhi, April 03, 2021.

Union home minister Amit Shah on Friday said the Election Commission of India must take strict action if something wrong was done by any BJP leader in Assam.

On Thursday evening, polling officials in Assam were caught taking an EVM machine in a car that belongs to BJP candidate Krishnendu Paul’s wife.

The Opposition has termed this an attempt to tamper with the EVM and also questioned the Election Commission’s role, asking why the voting machine was being carried in a private car by polling officials.

“I am not aware about details of this case. I was campaigning in South India yesterday. I will get the details. We have never stopped the Election Commission from taking any step. If what you say has actually happened, then the Election Commission must take action as per law. It must also act strictly against those involved,” Amit Shah said.
