Drunk voter smashes EVM
 

In a bizarre incident, a man vandalised an electronic voting machine (EVM) in Gonda in Uttar Pradesh, police said.


According to information received the incident occurred at the Abhaipur polling station in Colonelganj assembly constituency in Gonda district.
 

As voting was underway, the accused Ratnesh Mishra went to the voting booth after getting his finger inked and started to smash the EVM. Security personnel and poll officials rushed to prevent him and overpowered him.
 

The accused is reported to have been in an inebriated state when he carried out the act.
 

Due to the incident, balloting was disrupted for over 30 minutes. Polling restarted after the damaged EVM was replaced by polling officials.

PM Modi in Mau:


- BJP believes in Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas 
 

- Samajwadi Party, BSP and Congress, all of them have degraded the condition of UP

- Centre allotted funds for 24X7 power supply in Uttar Pradesh. But what stops the SP government from utilising those funds
 

- Law and order situation in UP is a disaster. Crime rate is rising, incidents of loot, rape, riots are reported. This must end 
 

- Why do gangsters here keep smiling when they go to jail? This is because they get all facilities inside
