Urmila Matondkar cries foul after losing from Mumbai North

MUMBAI. As counting for 2019 Lok Sabha election comes to a head, a few contentions were raised once again over the sanctity of EVMs. Actress-turned politician and Congress' North Mumbai Lok Sabha seat candidate Urmila Matondkar was among the few who pointed fingers at the reliability of polling by EVMs.

"We have noticed discrepancies in EVMs, we have prepared a report on it that we will submit to Election Commission at the end of the day," Matondkar told.

She, however, congratulated BJP's Gopal Shetty who won the General Elections to the Lok Sabha from the North Mumbai parliamentary seat. Shetty won against Matondkar by a margin of almost 4 lakh votes.

Meanwhile, Congress candidate from Kangra seat in Himachal Pradesh, Pawan Kajal claimed that EVM tampering was the reason behind his defeat in the 2019 Lok Sabha election. Kajal lost the poll to BJP's Kishan Kapoor by 4.77 lakh votes. Kajal said his defeat from his own assembly constituency was highly suspicious, and the huge gap of votes indicated 'something fishy'.
