UP Election 2022: Before the results of the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections, the Samajwadi Party has accused the administration of disturbances regarding EVMs. In view of these allegations, the monitoring of the administration at the counting centers has also increased and that of the workers of political parties. A counting center has been set up at Ramabai Ambedkar Maidan in Lucknow. Workers of SP, BSP and Congress are monitoring by putting up tents outside the strong room.
Similarly, from the day of polling till now, the workers are standing outside the counting centers. They make sure that there is no disturbance by sitting overnight on the bed under these tents. Candidates also come and monitor at different times. For the satisfaction of the workers, the administration has installed CCTV cameras in the strong room, which can be seen on the screen outside.
‘SP workers are standing on the spot’
Samajwadi Party’s candidate from Sarojini Nagar seat of Lucknow and former minister Abhishek Mishra also reached the counting center to inspect the votes. He said that the administration is deliberately trying to create disturbances.
