Full faith in Election Commission: BJP


BJP today said that the party has full faith in the Election Commission amid apprehensions raised by some political parties over the functioning of electronic voting machines (EVMs).

Reacting to the complaints made by the Congress and the AAP over the functioning of EVMs, BJP’s national general secretary Bhupendra Yadav rejected the charge of tampering and said the machines are kept in the custody of district magistrates.

Mr Yadav pointed out that party lost in a state like Punjab which was ruled by the BJP-Akali Dal alliance, while the Samajwadi Party lost in Uttar Pradesh. In both cases, EVMs were with the district magistrates.

The AAP and the Congress had yesterday lodged a complaint with the poll panel following media reports that VVPAT deployed for an assembly bypoll was only dispensing slips of a particular party during a demo exercise in Bhind in Madhya Pradesh.
