The Congress leader PL Punia on Saturday met the Election Commission and suggested to ensure a secured counting process, news agency ANI reported. PL Punia alleged that some unidentified persons with laptops and mobiles were seen around the strong room which is not allowed.  Abhishek Manu Singhvi, Manish Tewari, Vivek Tankha, TS Singh Dev, Pranav Jha, Ashok Dhahariya were also the part of the Congress delegation.

Congress leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi said, that we have informed the Election Commission about a polling booth in Saharanpur, UP where process of deletion of names is being misused. Out of 100 forms, 58 were filled with wrong details. This may cause a difference of 16000 votes in Saharanpur. It can change poll results, he said.

Earlier, a controversy has broken out in Madhya Pradesh over the delay in EVMs reaching the strong rooms in Sagar on Friday, a full 48 hours after voting ended in the state elections on Wednesday.

"In Madhya Pradesh home minister's area, EVMs were deposited using a bus without a registration plate, 48 hours after polling. Is this a conspiracy by the government to ensure a BJP win?" the Madhya Pradesh Congress tweeted.
