The Election Commission has served a notice to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidate from Assandh in Haryana over his purported remark that he had tampered the electronic voting machines (EVMs) and every vote would go to his party.

In a video, Bakshish Virk was heard saying he and his supporters had tampered EVMs in a way that every vote would go to the BJP, irrespective of the button the voters pressed.

He said they would also come to know who they cast their vote for. "We have sought a reply from the BJP candidate," District Election Officer Vinay Pratap Singh said.

Congress leader and former MP Deepender Hooda tweeted Virk's video.
