CCTV in EVM strongroom in Baramati goes blank for 45 mins, alleges NCP(SP) leader Supriya Sule

NCP (SP) Working President Supriya Sule, who is in the race for the Baramati seat opposite her sister-in-law, Sunetra A. Pawar, wife of Nationalist Congress Party chief Ajit Pawar, has cried foul play after CCTV in an EVM strongroom for the Baramati Lok Sabha constituency, allegedly went blank for some 45 minutes.

Sule posted a video of the monitor for CCTV on her social media account and alleged that the cameras were switched off. She pointed out that when her election representatives brought the matter to the notice of the concerned authorities and the administration, “they did not get any satisfactory reply.”

The elections for the Baramati seat were held on May 7 in the third phase of polling. EVMs are shifted to a secure strongroom after polling till the counting of votes scheduled on June 4.

Sule demanded that the Election Commission of India (ECI) should immediately take notice of this and reveal the reasons why the CCTVs were shut down and take appropriate action against those responsible for the lapse.
