District Magistrate of Varanasi Kaushal Sharma said, “There were 20 machines that were in a pick-up truck that was stopped by people. There was confusion among the people about whether polling EVMs were being transported. All the candidates, magistrates have been called here to clarify the same. There were 20 machines that were for training. They are not connected with polling EVMs. A hard copy of the machines that were used in polling will be given to the candidates. Also, we have decided that the training will be carried out without the EVMs. Other issues will be probed.”

Akhilesh Yadav claimed that no information was given regarding transport of EVM Machines. He said, “If the EVMs were being transported for training, why weren’t the candidates informed? I have known this DM since he was posted in Muzaffarnagar. He is letting things happen. He will say what the party (BJP) wants him to say.”

UP Chief Electoral Officer said, “These machines have always been used for dual training and hands-on training. The EVMs used in polling are sealed and guarded and are being observed through 24×7 monitoring.”

The results of UP Election 2022 will determine the position of BJP in the state. The trends derived from exit polls indicate that BJP will emerge with a huge majority in four states including UP, Manipur, Goa and Uttarakhand. In Punjab, AAP might win the majority and form the government.
