Congress Says EVMs Tampered, Wants VVPATs Counting

Hyderabad | 11th December 2018
Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) president N Uttam Kumar Reddy today alleged that the EVMs used in the Telangana Assembly elections were tampered with and subjected to manipulations.

Reddy alleged that the Election Commission of India had failed to hold the elections in a transparent and unbiased manner in the state, and demanded that the EC count the VVPATs as well before offically declaring the results.

Addressing media persons at Gandhi bhavan, Reddy said that they had already submitted a representation to the Telangana CEO Rajat Kumar and the CEC on the issue.

"We have asked the EC to count the VVPAT slips as well before declaring the results. If the EC fails to do so, it will be a black day for democracy in the state. If the VVPATs are not used to validate the EVM results, then it is of no use in the elections. Majority of the political parties are demanding the counting of the slips. But, the EC is not listening," he said.

He alleged that in many constituencies across the state, the number of votes polled gave different results using the VVPAT slips and the EVMs.
