"On the contrary, Rahul Gandhi has used words like "Vikas" in his tweet today because he is scared and has realised that "Vikas" (development) is very important in every state to which the BJP has never failed in".

Amid the polling, there were also complaints of malfunctioning EVMs and them being connected to Bluetooth.

The first phase of polling is being held in 89 assembly constituencies of Saurashtra and South Gujarat.

Soon a flurry of similar complaints began from various parts of Gujarat including Bharuch, Rajkot and Kutch.

Gujarat chief electoral officer (CEO) B B Swain said to media, that the mobile phone of the complainant had through Bluetooth detected a device marked as "ECO 105" which led to the confusion.

The collector and observer were sent to the booths from where such complaints were received, and the complainant was also called.

Jain said experts found that the cell phone was actually connected to the bluetooth of a polling agent's mobile. "A polling agent named Manoj Singrakhiya was carrying the mobile phone", Swain said. Party spokesperson Sambit Patra said, "Congress is searching for an excuse even before the results are out, as it stares at a loss in the elections". Just to prepare itself for the defeat, this is a controversy they have cooked up.

Speaking to Firstpost, Khalid Badshah, a businessman from Surat expressed concerns over EVM tampering. "The EC has seconded it".
