Election Commission has said there was a 100 per cent match in the random vote count on EVMs and paper trail slips carried out in 182 Gujarat polling stations yesterday.
Official sources said in New Delhi that the EC had decided to match the tally in select polling stations amid allegations that the EVMs were compromised to help the BJP.
EC said the polling stations were decided through a draw of lots in which the candidates or their agents were also present.
In Gujarat, Chief Electoral Officer BB Swain also said that the vote count through the EVMs matched with the VVPAT in all the constituencies where the paper trail slips were counted.
Officials did not find any mismatch in the EVM vote count and VVPAT slip count as the counting concluded yesterday evening, Mr Swain said.
