During the by-elections in Dholpur, Rajasthan, there were again questions about EVM machines. Many voters complained that they are voting for their party and the voter slip is emerging for some other party. On checking, 18 EVM machines have been sealed and replaced with new EVM machines. A voter Rakesh Jain complained that he voted for the Congress, but the voter slip got out was of BJP. When the returning officer examined it, he discovered that the machine was casting false votes. The incident angered Congress workers who started protesting in front of the polling booth.
During the voting, EVM machines could not be started on more than one dozen polling stations. The voters faced a lot of trouble. After an hour, EVM machines were rectified. After that, the voting process started. Long-queues were noticed at the Dholpur assembly area booths. RAC and local police force were deployed with a contingent of four paramilitary forces to conduct a safe poll. In the assembly constituency, 231 polling stations have been set up, out of which 67 are sensitive polling stations.
