Shiv Sena (UBT) questions  counting process in  Mumbai North West seat.

Mumbai June 16(UNI)Alleging the Election Commission as “entirely compromised”, the Shiv Sena (UBT) has raised serious questions about the counting process in the Mumbai North West seat.
In the elections, Ravindra Waikar, who is with the Eknath Shinde-led Shiv Sena defeated Amol Kirtikar of Uddhav Thackeray-led Shiv Sena (UBT). by a margin of 48 votes.
“Once a traitor, always a traitor! ' Shiv Sena (UBT) MLA Aaditya Thackeray said. adding Eknath Shinde-led Shiv Sena candidate indulges in treachery with democracy now,”
“Surprisingly, or not, the Entirely Compromised- election commission, has refused to share CCTV footage of the counting centre. I guess it’s trying to avoid another Chandigarh moment.
The Vanrai police station has filed an FIR against Mangesh Pandilkar, who is said to be a relative and aide of Waikar.
Kirtikar is the son of two-time MP Gajanan Kirtikar, who had switched over to Shinde’s team.
Since Thackeray fielded Amol Kirtikar's son, the senior kept away from the polls.
More than a month after Kirtikar’s name was announced, Waikar, a sitting MLA, joined Shinde’s party to contest against his former party colleague.
The counting centre for Mumbai North West was set up at the Nesco Complex in Goregaon.
Kirtikar and Shiv Sena (UBT) Rajya Sabha member and chief spokesperson Sanjay Raut have already questioned the role of Vandana Suryavanshi, the returning officer.
Shiv Sena (UBT)’s Rajya Sabha member Priyanka Chaturvedi too spoke about it and questioned why the Election Commission of India is silent on it.
“This is a fraud at the highest level and yet the Election Commission continues to sleep. The ‘manipulated’ winner’s relative was carrying a mobile phone at the counting centre which could unlock the EVM machine. If ECI doesn’t step in this will be the biggest election result scam after the Chandigarh Mayor election and will see this battle in the courts. This brazenness has to be punished,” said Chaturvedi.
Meanwhile, Mumbai police on Sunday issued summon to M Pandakar a relative of Waikar, for taking the mobile phone to the counting station on the day of the Lok Sabha vote counting on June 4
Earlier police registered an offence against him as well as a polling staff, Dinesh Gurav, for allowing Pandirkar to take his mobile phone to the counting station.
