Indian National Congress has asked its candidates in the Madhya Pradesh assembly elections to be vigilant on the day of counting to check any possibility of manipulation of results, party sources said. Voting for assembly elections in the state was held on November 28. A total turnover of 74.6% recorded in the state.

The Counting of votes is slated for December 11 along with other state assembly elections.

In a party meeting of candidates held in Bhopal on Thursday to tell the candidate about do’s and don’ts on December 11, the date of counting, the state Congress president Kamal Nath told the candidates not to relax till the results are declared and they ga et certificate from the authorities concerned after each and every round of counting. The Candidates and Workers are asked to note down votes of every candidate after each round of counting and not just the two major parties.

In Thursday meeting, Kamal Nath asked the candidates to be more vigilant about postal ballot papers. A new controversy has erupted on Wednesday after three blank postal ballots were found unclaimed at the state police’s Home Guard office.

Also, they have been asked to make sure that none of the government personnel engaged in the duty for counting use mobile phones or laptops. The returning officer too is not supposed to use his mobile phone after the initial process when he may need the mobile phone.

Later, talking to media persons Kamal Nath exuded confidence that Congress would win at least 140 seats and forming the next government.

“Madhya Pradesh will write a new history. This election was between voters who were betrayed by the state government and the BJP. Several big names in the BJP are going to lose the election”,  Kamal Nath said

He added, “I have demanded that ECI should ensure the next round of counting only after  issuing a certificate for each and every round counting.”

BJP State vice-president Vijesh Lunawat said, “Congress is preparing itself to offer excuses for its defeat on December 11. The Congress leaders’ conduct and demands suggest they don’t have faith in the constitutional bodies.”
