EC has problem with tallying EVM-VVPAT machines before counting begins: CM Naidu

While talking to media persons after a delegation of 22 Opposition parties met the Election Commission (EC), Andhra Pradesh's Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu said, "We have a very genuine demand. We have repeatedly made representation to the EC and have even gone to the SC. We want that tallying of five EVM-VVPAT machines should be made at the beginning of the counting, but the EC has a problem."He further added, "We are asking to respect the mandate. People's mandate cannot be manipulated. The EC is saying one blood sample is enough but if that sample is showing total pollution in the body, then you have to scan the whole body," said Naidu.
