Mangaluru: Congress candidate from Mangaluru North constituency Moideen Bawa has raised suspicions of EVM malfunctioning and has said that he would take up the matter with the Election Commission.
Bawa who is trailing to BJP's Dr Bharath Shetty by over 28,900 votes, while speaking to media persons said, "I have been working for the development of this constituency for last five years.
