A video clip of the BJP candidate from Assandh in Haryana shows him telling people that he had ‘fixed’ the EVMs and would know who they cast their vote for.
मनोहर लाल की नज़रें बहुत तेज़ हैं। कहीं भी डालो चाहे वोट, जाएगी फ़ुल पर ही।
बटन चाहे कोई मर्ज़ी दबा लेना, जाएगा भाजपा को ही। हमने मशीन(EVM) में पुर्जा फ़िट कर रखा है- बख्शीश सिंह विर्क, वर्तमान विधायक तथा भाजपा प्रत्याशी हल्का असंध।

The Election Commission has served a notice to the BJP candidate Bakshish Singh Virk. He was heard saying that he and his supporters had tampered with the EVMs in a way that every vote would go to the BJP, irrespective of the button the voters press.
The Congress candidate from Assandh, Shamsher Singh Gogi, demanded action against the candidate from the Election Commission.
“The video came to my notice and I have served a notice to BJP candidate to give his reply,” said District Election Officer Vinay Pratap Singh.
“Legal action should be taken against him. His candidature should be cancelled,” said Gogi.
“I respect the Election Commission and the EVMs. The video is edited. It is a conspiracy against me to malign my image,” BJP candidate Bakshish Singh Virk
However, Virk and BJP district president Jagmohan Anand claimed that the video was doctored.
District BJP president Anand said that he got the video clip verified and it was found to be doctored.
Haryana goes to polls on Oct 21.
