Ramesh posted on X, “In Uttar Pradesh's Maharajganj, Bansgaon, Meerut, Muzaffarnagar seats, district officials are being pressurised to win the seats by calling them. Administrative officers should remember that the government is changing and this tampering with democracy will not be accepted.”

Another Congress leader, Sachin Pilot, also made similar allegations.

Pilot posted on X, "The manner in which the administration has acted under pressure in the close contest in Jaipur Rural Lok Sabha constituency raises many questions. The counting process is under doubt, and complaints are being made to the Election Commission by the candidates and the party."
