The EC had ordered repoll on eight polling stations spread over four Assembly segments in Gurgaon Parliamentary constituency.

The Aam Aadmi Party had recently asked the EC to conduct repolling in a few booths of the Gurgaon Parliamentary constituency and alleged rigging in a few booths.

In a letter to CEC V S Sampath, AAP senior leader Yogendra Yadav, who fought as party candidate from Gurgaon Lok Sabha seat, had submitted a "scientific analysis" of the

polling station-wise turnout data which established that there was a cluster of booths "that recorded abnormally high turnout, upwards of 90 per cent or even 95 per cent..."

AAP had complained about this abnormally high turnout on April 10 polling.
