The police have arrested Jana Sena MLA candidate Madhusudhan Gupta for breaking the EVM by smashing it on the floor in a polling booth in the Guntakal Assembly constituency of Anantapur district, today on Thursday. According to the police report, he entered into an argument with polling staff over faulty EVM. He was angry with polling staff over names of Assembly and Parliament constituencies not being displayed properly. He lifted the EVM and threw it on the floor, and the machine was damaged in the incident.
When the police received this information, they rushed to the polling station and took him into custody. However, Madhusudhan Gupta’s followers tried to stop police from arresting him and raised the slogans against the police.
