Chamarajanagar: NDA candidate from Chamarajanagar Lok Sabha (reserved) constituency S Balaraju has alleged that the strongroom with electronic voting machines (EVM) was opened before the scheduled time on the counting day.

Speaking to reporters here on Thursday, Balaraju said that the strongroom was opened even before the scheduled time of 8 am.

“A few days ago, we received an anonymous call informing that the CCTV camera screen at the strongroom was down for two days. After inspecting the spot, we found that it was true. We immediately lodged a complaint with the Election Commission. The CCTV camera was set right later. We had asked for CCTV footage, but it has not been given till today. This has raised doubts,” he said.

The strongroom door was to be opened at 8 am on the counting day. But it was opened at 7.30 am in our absence, the defeated candidate alleged. Congress candidate Sunil Bose won the segment by a margin of more than 1.8 lakh votes against Balaraju.
