Rumour

The National media co-ordinator of Aam Aadmi Party Vikash Yogi tweeted two screengrabs of TV reports to claim that vehicles loaded with EVMs were found in Jhansi. Workers left the vehicle and ran away in Mandi Samiti.

His tweet was retweeted by Manish Sisodia was well to claim that EVMs are getting replaced in Jhansi, Meerut, Ghazipur, Chandauli, Saran. He further blames media and Election Commission of India and writes, "the Election Commission and the so-called media is sitting on the knees in front of Modi and closing their eyes. The people have voted against Modi but the media and the Election Commission together changing these votes.

Our Investigation

Jhansi Lok Sabha constituency of Uttar Pradesh went to polls on April 29. The two screengrabs are of news channel News18 Uttarakhand, where breaking news can be seen flashing with a reporter's photo on the left.

We found a Youtube video of the report from where the screen grabs were taken. The video was uploaded on 30, 2019 a day after polling in Jhansi. You can see the relevant part from 3:20 minutes onwards in the video below.

This was an old incident which took place on April 30, 2019, the day after polling. Two vehicles with EVM machines were spotted in Jhansi by locals following which the local politicians created a ruckus alleging EVM tampering.

Later, the district magistrate clarified that those EVMs were reserved and unused. The incident was reported by local daily Bhaskar. 

The District Magistrate also wrote a letter to the Election Commission, mentioning the News18 report. He clarified that the local politicians checked the EVMs found in the vehicle which was marked 'rejected' and left the spot satisfied.

Fact

The TV screengrabs showing vehicles loaded with EVMs were found in Jhansi is 20 days old. The incident happened when unused EVMs were being transported on 30th April a day after polling in Jhansi.

Since many videos of EVMs transportation has surfaced recently, many can think that the incident happened just days before the counting of votes.

This is not the first time an AAP leader has shared misleading news about EVMs replacement.

A few days back AAP member Savita Anand tweeted a fake video to claim that PM Modi has changed EVMs in 200 Loksabha seats to win the election. The video was debunked by us.
