EVMs dysfunctional in various polling booths

Some of the polling booths where EVMs were or are dysfunctional are:

  • Kahilipara High School, East Guwahati,
  • Sadilapur LP School, Pandu
  • 135 no. Rabindra Vidyapeeth English Medium School, Pandu

  • 117 no. Sapmari JB School, Kokrajhar
  • 130 polling booth at Tilpukhuri LP School, North Abhayapuri

Pertaining to such inevitable hindrances, voting had to started much later than the stipulated time of 7 am in the morning. Voters who had queued up early in the morning had to face problems in view of the dysfunctional EVMs.
