GUWAHATI, April 8: Assam Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) on Thursday urged the Election Commission of India (ECI) to count the postal ballots before the EVM votes.

“The counting of votes for the assembly election might be clean and clear and nobody would be able to raise fingers against the Election Commission and oblige,” the APCC said in a press release here.

The party appealed to take necessary and proper steps to count the postal ballots.

“In the last Bihar assembly election, the postal ballot votes were counted late at night after the EVM votes. For this many discrepancies and complaints were raised during the counting of ballots by many contesting candidates and it was viral in the social media,” the release said citing the example of Bihar assembly polls.

“As a result, many candidates lost with a narrow margin of votes and fingers were pointed at the Election Commission,” it said.

Earlier, the Congress urged EC to provide CCTV access to the strong room, to all the contesting candidates.
