Lucknow, March 16: Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan on Thursday expressed strong doubts on the viability of EVMs in the assembly elections of Uttar Pradesh.

Earlier Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati had claimed that EVMs are tampered with. She had said, without the tempering of voting machines BJP could not win the election, particularly in minority backed constituencies.

Somebody had to come to power. The opposition would have said something. But why the BSP, Congress is also saying the same thing? The BJP’s party workers are also shocked by the result. What more proof do you want?” said Khan to reporters.

Citing how other countries are adopting ballot system of voting, Khan said the country, which first manufactured EVMs is itself using former electoral system.

What is the reason that the country, which manufactured this machine, does not use it? Japan made it but ballots are used there. Europe, America all resort to ballot system,” he said.

“Developed countries like Germany have set up commissions, inquiry set-ups and they have also opined that some tampering can be done and that is why they have adopted ballot system,” he added.

He added if all the opposition parties are expressing doubts then it should be resolved. EC has however brushed Mayawati concerns regarding EVM tampering.

 

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal also said on Wednesday that Election Commission needs to relook at the use of EVMs in the electoral process until faith is restored in it. Delhi Congress leader Ajay Maken also wrote to EC for using paper ballots in upcoming municipal elections in the capital.
