EVMs weren’t placed in order in Coimbatore, complains BJP

EVMs weren’t placed in order in Coimbatore, complains BJP

In the ongoing parliamentary elections, the BJP has raised concerns regarding the arrangement of voting machines in the Coimbatore constituency. According to their complaint, the voting machines were placed in the order of 3, 2, 1 instead of the correct sequence of 1, 2, 3 in several polling stations within the Coimbatore Parliamentary Constituency and Sulur Assembly Constituency. Specifically, polling stations No. 148, 151, 155, 156, 157, 159, and 160 were cited in their complaint. This issue prompted the BJP to file a formal complaint at the Coimbatore Collector's office.
Led by BJP Sulur East Zone President Ravikumar, more than 50 individuals submitted the complaint, urging strict action against the responsible officials and advocating for re-voting in the affected booths. 
Ravikumar emphasised that such discrepancies could jeopardise the fair conduct of the election and potentially impact the victory prospects of BJP candidate Annamalai. 
The party stressed the importance of adhering to electoral regulations for a transparent and unbiased electoral process.
