Mumbai, May 23 (IANS) Actress Urmila Matondkar, who is the Congress candidate from Mumbai North parliamentary seat, on Thursday lodged a complaint with the Election Commission (EC) over an Electronic Voting Machine (EVM) being substituted.

“On the form of EVM 17C from Magathane, the signatures and the machine numbers are different. A complaint has been filed with the EC,” Matondkar tweeted.

Terming it as a “fight between a film-star and a road-star”, Shetty asserted that not only was his victory assured, but the BJP and Shiv Sena would bag all the six seats in Mumbai.
