EVM Tampering Row: Cong, AAP Demand Return Of Ballot Paper

The Congress, as well as the Aam Aadmi Party, knocked on the doors of the election commission on Saturday making fresh allegations of EVM tampering.

The Congress also expressed its reservations to the poll panel stating that there is an extraordinary suspicion about the fairness of the EVM machines post recently conducted elections- specially Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand, adding that apparently the polling in these states did not "reflect the public mood and confidence as noticed by national parties".

Union minister Harsh Vardhan today took a jibe at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal over his attack on EVMs and said for the AAP leader the voting machines means "Everyone Votes (for) Modiji". "We have full faith in the Election Commission", Mr. Yadav told reporters at the party headquarters.

The trial of the EVM was going on before the by-election for the Ater assembly seat in Madhya Pradesh scheduled for April 9. The slip is then dropped in a box.

He said that "someone joked, saying: ' Ab toh ho gaya (Now we're done for)'", creating an impression of something gone amiss.

In 2009, Subramanian Swami and GVL Rao alleged that the EVMs had been tampered with after the Congress party came back to power.

He also sought to know how it is possible that EVMs record votes in favour of BJP candidates whenever a fault is detected in the electronic voting machines.

"The incident in Madhya Pradesh's Bhind district was not the only one".

The reports also claimed that Chief Electoral Officer (CEO), Madhya Pradesh, Saleena Singh was seen telling journalists that the news should not appear in newspapers, else they would be detained at the police station.
