Trinamool Congress Rajya Sabha MP Sukhendu Sekhar Ray wrote on social media, “Hundreds of EVMs found to be dysfunctional from the very start of a poll in various booths of the 9 Parliamentary Constituencies of West Bengal where elections are being held today. Rs 3,173 crores sanctioned by the Government in April 2017 for purchase of 16 Lakh new EVMs. It seems that old and junk machines have been put on service in these 9 constituencies with the evil design to delay the process of voting.”
“Because if the voters after waiting for hours together fail to cast their votes will leave the polling stations in disgust, which will affect the percentage of polling severely. Shame Election Commission,” Ray added on Facebook.
