"If the human body, which has been created by God, can be fiddled with, why cannot EVMs?" he tweeted, and mentioned attempts to hack the EVMs particularly in the Patel and tribal-dominated constituencies such as Visnagar, Patam, Radhanpur, Unjha, Jetpur, Rajkot, Lathi-Babra, Chhota Udepur, Sant Rampur, Sanwli, Nadod and Dabhoi.
