The complainants have given their complaint to EC, and state's Chief Electoral Officer Vijay Singh Dahiya decided to hear their version.
Lawyer R K Anand had moved EC, alleging someone had changed the original pen provided by the election officials with another one for a while which resulted in some votes being declared as invalid.
State Congress President Ashok Tanwar, who had filed a complaint on behalf of his party, said, "EC has called us as we had filed a complaint. All three candidates -- (Union Minister) Birender Singh, Subhash Chandra and Anand have also been called."
Congress had claimed it was a "conspiracy" by BJP-RSS to defeat Anand, a candidate backed by it, and demanded countermanding of the election to both the Rajya Sabha seats, while INLD had alleged that Congress leader B S Hooda and BJP were "responsible" for the 14 votes of party MLAs being declared invalid, leading to the victory of BJP-supported Independent candidate Subhash Chandra.
A team of the Election Commission had visited the assembly secretariat here for an inquiry into the matter.
The Haryana Vidhan Sabha Secretary R K Nandal, who was the Returning Officer for the polls, said there was very "rare chance" of the pen provided for marking the votes being changed.
