A Congress candidate in Gujarat dramatically tied a “noose” around his neck to protest what he alleged was tampering of EVMs or voting machines during counting.
Bharatbhai Veljibhai Solanki, the Congress candidate in Gandhidham, first launched a sit-in protest at the counting centre, then tied his scarf like a noose around his neck, in a threatening manner.
Mr Solanki was trailing behind the BJP’s Malti Kisor Maheshwari.
The BJP has won a record eighth consecutive term in Gujarat with an all-time high tally of 157 seats in the 182-member assembly.
The Congress will end up with less than 20 seats in its worst-ever performance in Gujarat, where it held the previous record of 149 seats in 1985.
