Press any button. Vote goes to Congress!

From common man to businessman, everyone expected this trick to happen and it happened today. You press any button on the Electronic Voting Machine, the vote will go to one 'symbol' only.   

In a constituency in Nellore Districit, this hi-tech error took place, which officers termed as malfunctioning of EVMs. Polling came to a halt with presiding officers found that pressing any button is clicking votes for only one party, the ruling Congress. Though the machinery is replaced immediately, people and party cadres still doubt that this is a malpractice of ruling party. 

By afternoon, polling percentage has increased tremendously with more than 50% votes getting polled in most of the constituencies. Surprisingly, Parkal constituency is still witnessing only 30% polling with voters not turning out to vote. With Police taking these regions into complete control, political parties who tried to play some last minute games had a slap on their face.
