Patidar leader Hardik Patel made a big claim on Saturday morning, saying that the Bharatiya Janata Party will tamper with the EVMs on Saturday and Sunday night. The stunning part of these claims was that Hardik Patel said that BJP will deliberately lose the election in Himachal Pradesh. He said that if the party loses in Gujarat, it will mark its downfall. Hardik, in a series of tweets, alleged that BJP will win the Gujarat elections with the help of EVM tampering but will lose in Himachal Pradesh so that no fingers are pointed at it. The counting of votes for both the state assembly elections will take place on December 18, i.e. Monday.

The second phase of voting for 93 seats in North and Central Gujarat finished on December 14. Prime Minister Narendra Modi also cast his vote on the same day. While the polling was largely peaceful, two incidents of clashes were reported in Mehsana and Vadodara districts, police officials said. The EC received complaints from five places that electronic voting machines (EVMs) were connecting to external
devices via Bluetooth, but after inquiry, it was found that there was “no substance” in the complaints, poll officials said.

There were complaints of EVMs getting connected to the external devices via Bluetooth were received from Patan, Kheda, Mehsana districts, Ghatlodia in Ahmedabad district and Godhra in Panchamahal district. Last Saturday, during the first phase of the Assembly polls, the Congress had complained that some EVMs in Porbandar were connecting to external devices via Bluetooth. However, the EC had said that the apprehension of possible EVM tampering through Bluetooth technology was baseless.

The prime minister cast his ballot after waiting in a queue at a polling booth in a school in Sabarmati constituency of Ahmedabad district. After casting the vote at Nishan High School, he showed his inked finger to thousands of supporters who had gathered outside the school in Ranip locality of Sabarmati constituency, amid chants of “Modi, Modi”. However, the Congress alleged that Modi’s roadshow was a violation of the Model Code of Conduct and accused the EC of bias.

            And what Hardin login will justify a BJP win in both States? - Obviously one that stands him out as a"tall", sore loser.

              Hardik Patel has a very strange logic If the Congress wins, that would be because of support of people of Gujarat. If BJP means, it will be a a manipulated win. I think he should not be in politics as he appears to be a very bad loser.

                I think one more baffling is slowly arriving on the scene. Once, Politics was the place for only learned persons of high calibre, commitment and a sense of sacrifice. But now , due to changed time and perception, anybody can enter politics and talk any nonsense. One more addition to the later category.
