Congress raises concern over handling of EVMs after voting in North East Delhi seat The Congress has expressed concern over the way electronic voting machines (EVMs) were transported to strongroom in Nand Nagari in the North East Delhi Lok Sabha constituency after voting on Sunday evening. The party alleged that vehicles carrying EVMs were off-loaded on the road around 200 metres away from the strongroom. "I was shocked the way the EVMs were carried to the strongroom. There was no system and thousands of EVMs were off-loaded in the middle of the road which raised question over their safety," said Latika Dikshit, the election agent and daughter of Congress's East Delhi candidate Sheila Dikshit. Delhi Congress's media committee member Parvez said the party had complained to the office of Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) of Delhi, but no action has been taken so far.
