“Make sure my certificate is brought. Otherwise we will frog march you to the IEBC officers. What I am sure if you are not leaving here,” Babu added.

“This is not monkey business. You will see my other side if I don’t get my certificate,” Babu said.

Shortly after, the certificate was found among other documents by the deputy returning officer.
