NEW DELHI: Less than two days before the results are scheduled to be announced for the 2022 Uttar Pradesh assembly elections, Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav on Tuesday alleged massive “EVM fraud” and “vote theft”.

The SP chief claimed that Election Commission officials were tampering with EVMs and that he no longer trusts the EC. “I have no hope from the Election Commission. People themselves, in some way, have to fight to save democracy,” he said during an emergency press conference in Lucknow.

The senior leader further alleged that EVMs were being transported without informing the candidates. “We need to be alerted if EVMs are being transported this way. Varanasi DM is transporting EVMs without giving any information to local candidates. This is theft. We need to save our votes. We may go to court against it but before that, I want to appeal to the people to save the democracy,” Yadav said.
