Uttar Pradesh EVM Malfunction: AAP Leader Wants Election Commission Probe

AAP leader Atishi Marlena demanded an Election Commission probe for EVMs malfunctioning in Uttar Pradesh


New Delhi:  AAP leader Atishi Marlena today demanded that the Election Commission conduct a thorough probe into allegations that electronic voting machines (EVMs) used in the Uttar Pradesh civic body polls were casting votes only for the BJP at several places.

Ms Marlena told reporters that cases of EVM malfunctioning were also reported during polls in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Uttarkhand.

The one thing common in all cases was that the vote went to the BJP no matter which button was pressed, she claimed.

"These cases should be thoroughly investigated by the Election Commission," she said.
