Mysuru, May 16:- Aravinda Sharma of Kannada Paksha – Karnataka staged a lonely protest on Wednesday, condemning the behaviour of the election officer during counting.
“During the counting at Maharani college on Tuesday, booth number 104 was selected. The VVPat machine of the booth was taken and the counting was held. But the EVM of the booth was not considered. There was no connection between the EVMs and VVPats. The voting count was written down without comparing that of EVMs and VVPats. When I opposed and sought recounting, he took the decision on his own and said he could not do it,” Sharma alleged. (MR/KS).
