Kejriwal slams Election Commission ahead of MCD polls, citing tampering in EVMs before MP bypoll

Kejriwal has sought a thorough inquiry into the matter and demanded that ballot papers, not EVMs, be used in the upcoming MCD polls.

After reports of tampering in electronic voting machines (EVM) came to the fore in Madhya Pradesh, Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal among other opposition parties have demanded a thorough inquiry into the matter.

Kejriwal raised the matter with the Election Commission, alleging that ahead of Bhind bypolls in Madhya Pradesh next week, EVMs were only dispensing BJP slips.

The Delhi chief minister also attacked the poll panel, saying that it's claim of EVMs being foolproof had been proved wrong in the light of this development.

With Delhi civic body polls scheduled later this month, Kejriwal has demanded that ballot papers, not EVMs, be used in the election.
