Even though polling has been held on Monday for the 14 seats of the Lok Sabha and 10 for the 10 assembly seats, there were so many complaints that there was no problem in the closure of EVMs (polling machines) in Palghar, Gondia-Bhandara and Kairana Lok Sabha constituencies of UP, due to turmoil and against the opposition candidate. The opposition parties accused the BJP of being a conspiracy. Palghar officials, however, say that some of the devices have failed due to rampant dust and dust.
