    Initial counting was giving huge gap between BJP and other parties. That is bcoz the voting in that areas was done in ballot paper. So anybody think EVM become pure and holy forget that. There is definitely still something in EVM which is not giving complete majority party other than BJP.

    If it is EVM, ultimate victory will be that of the balatkari party. Only if the EVM setters have failed in their work, probably there is a very remote chance for other parties.

    You may remember the 2018 assembly elections of Karnataka. Especially in DK, all Congress candidates were leading initially but lost by huge margins eventually.

    that is why we need to wait and see whether the EVMs have scored over the voters.
