Congress Alleges Telangana Booth Capture Citing 'Spike' After 5 pm
The Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC), a state unit of the Congress party, kept in touch with the Election Commission on Wednesday, 1 May, raising worry over the level of votes surveyed amid the Lok Sabha decisions after 5 pm.
The letter, composed by TPCC director Marri Shashidhar Reddy, says there was a "bizarre increment in the level of surveying after 5 pm" on 11 April 2019, surveying day, in 17 parliamentary voting demographics in Telangana.
Three noteworthy perceptions are made in the letter:
The normal level of votes surveyed till 5 pm in the 17 electorates was 59.08%.
The normal level of votes toward the finish of surveying in each of the 17 voting public was 64.32%.
A general increment in the level of votes after 5 pm was near 5.26%.
The all-out number of voters surveyed after 5 pm in each of the 17 bodies electorate was 15,36,784, which implies 90,399 votes for every voting demographic. Roughly, that is 130 votes or less per surveying station.
One may contend, why vote rate after 5 pm is a worry in light of the fact that the voting rate could've expanded because of a long line of individuals at 5 pm.
Marri Shashidhar Reddy, Chairperson, TPCC"We had a gathering with the EC today (3 May), they conceded that this sort of casting a ballot after 5 pm is remarkable and that it never occurred in past Lok Sabha decisions."
"It is peculiar that such a significant number of individuals cast a ballot after 5 pm. According to the standard, a slip with the number is given over to the general population standing the line at 5 pm, so individuals holding a slip is just permitted to cast a ballot. Any individual who comes later isn't permitted."
