On the other hand, Congress didn’t ignore this whole thing and they did accuse BJP of enacting this “drama” of raiding an apartment owned by a local BJP leader and planting “fake evidence”. Overall, things aren’t looking easy and this isn’t going to help anybody in this Karnataka assembly election. The state election commission swept into action and convened a press conference at around midnight.

Also, in the press conference, we have seen Karnataka’s Chief Electoral Officer Sanjiv Kumar who said that the cards were found wrapped in smaller packets. Sanjiv Kumar also said that form 6A (Application for Inclusion of Name in Electoral Roll by an Overseas Elector) with a counterfoil with certain numbers were also found. He also said that the color in the counterfoil appeared unusual.

Some reports are suggesting that the commission clarified that 5 laptops and a printer were also recovered from the apartment. You all should know that “In next 24 hours we will get to know more facts based on which a firm decision will be taken,” confirmed by the Election commission.
