GUWAHATI: It has been alleged that an electronic voting machine (EVM) in Tezpur, Assam is faulty as every time a button was pressed on it, the vote went in favour of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). The incident was reported from the polling booth in Rangajan, Godamghat Miri Gaon school in Tezpur district.
