He said an EVM was not working where Chief Electoral Officer Gopal Krishna Dwivedi went to cast his vote.

Mr Naidu said at least now the Election Commission should review its stand on EVMs. "We have long been saying that there is scope for technical problems and manipulation in EVMs. Even technologically advanced countries are using ballot papers," the TDP chief said.
