The Congress has threatened to boycott the elections following the second phase of polling ended in Assam after a video showing electronic voting machines (EVMs) being transported in the vehicle of BJP MLA Krishnendu Paul surfaced.
The video has now been widely shared on social media. It shows a white vehicle with EVMs inside, and people are heard saying that it belongs to the MLA from Patharkandi.
Assam Congress chief Ripun Bora retweeted the video and said that the “open loot and rigging of EVMs” has to stop immediately. He also threatened that the party would boycott the election otherwise.
“We expect the Election Commission to take immediate action and explain how this could happen. The Congress party will consider boycotting the election if this open loot and rigging of EVMs does not stop immediately,” Bora tweeted.
