More than two weeks since the polls were held across 117 assembly seats of Punjab, the AAP workers have taken it upon themselves to ensure that EVMs stored at 59 strongrooms in the state, including the one at the college, are not tampered with.
Party workers, young and old, from far-flung areas, station themselves in turns inside the tents sponsored by the volunteers. Playing cards, chess and surfing the internet is what keeps them engaged. NRI volunteers call the on-duty workers in the dead of the night to ensure that they don’t sleep. Except for AAP, no political party or candidate in the poll fray has expressed doubts over EVM security this time.
