Confident, Let Counting Begin: Ahmed Patel

Union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said the Election Commission has heard the BJP's arguments. He said the Congress has been making false charges. BJP leader Piyush Goyal said the rules say hurdles in procedure calls for the presiding officer's warning and cancellation of that vote, but in this case the vote reached the ballot box under full supervision of the Election Commission.

However, Congress' Ahmed Patel said a complaint was filed immediately, but the returning officer didn't do anything, news agency ANI reported. "I'm very much confident. Let counting take place," Mr Patel said.
