Amethi: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi was present on polling day in Amethi for the first time in 10 years and he seems to have violated the law by entering the voting compartment, the closeted area where the EVM machine is kept, during polling hours in at least three booths.
A senior Election Commission official said in Delhi that during polling, only three people can access the voting compartment: the voter, presiding officer and polling officer.
In case a candidate gains access to the polling station, the presiding officer will be held responsible, said the official.
