The Shiv Sena's [Images] Mohan Rawale  has refused to accept defeat even as Milind Deora [Images] was declared the winner of the South Mumbai [Images] seat.  

Rawale alleged that there was a problem with some EVMs and a complaint would be lodged with the Election Commission in this regard after consulting senior leaders of the Shiv Sena including executive president Uddhav Thackeray.

Rawale cited the examples of US and Indonesia where the use of EVMs has been stopped due their inconsistency." I wonder how i got only 5 votes from an area that is a Shiv Sena stronghold," the defeated candidate said. Replying to query, Rawale claimed that the MNS had not impacted the outcome.
