RJD leader Manoj Jha accused the government of pressuring the DMs in the closely contested seats for a favorable verdict.
The delegation alleged that the tampering had been done on a dozen seats in an effort to change people’s mandate, as they sought a recount.
According to a Hindustan Times report, Jha also alleged that leaders from the ruling JD (U) and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) were ‘misusing their official power’ to delay the handing over of certificates to winning candidates, and thereby leaving the scope for tampering with the final results in the elections.
However, the charges were denied by the Election Commission of India (EC), and said they were going about their duties with all procedures followed impartially. The Election Commission said that there is no room for doubt as the counting was done in front of the candidates.
