Addressing a press conference here, Rawat said: “I want to thank ‘Modi Kranti’ (revolution) and EVM ‘chamatkar’ (miracle).”

When reporters asked if he was hinting at tampering of EVMs, he said he did not say anything like this. “You know everything. I am not confusing you. I leave it to you to understand.”

He added that the Election Commission of India must explain why the poll process was stretched over such a long duration.
