No deliberate or mala fide intention to disrupt poll process: EC's special observer on Assam EVM row
The observer said the incident appears to be an isolated one due to the total negligence and foolishness of the presiding officer and his team.
During the 2016 state polls, central and state agencies had seized goods worth less than Rs 20 crore.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi had led the campaign brigade for BJP and its alliance partner, the Asom Gana Parishad (AGP).
Slamming the Congress, Modi, while addressing an election rally at Bihpuria, said the grand old party does not have ideals or able leaders.
He also asserted that people there are yearning for a change from the Trinamool Congress' 'misrule' and will embrace Prime Minister Narendra Modi's vision for the state's development.
Addressing an election rally here, he said the BJP government has set up electronic surveillance across the Indo-Bangla border in Assam to stop infiltration from the neighbouring country.
Sonowal speaking on the occasion said during the campaign BJP will take the message of his government's acheivements and success in giving protection to the culture and heritage of the people.
Launching the campaign, Congress MP Gaurav Gogoi said the first step to solving a problem is to acknowledge and understand a problem and the campaign is for that first step.
