Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday said that the Election Commission’s only aim was to bring the BJP to power at any cost.
Kejriwal said 18 Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) had surfaced in Dholpur in Rajasthan which voted only for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) no matter which button was pressed by the voters.
“Eighteen EVMs in one constituency means at least 10 per cent of the total number of machines were tampered with,” Kejriwal told media.
“The Election Commission is still not ready to probe the issue of EVM tampering despite all the evidence… This raises suspicion if the tampering is being done on its directions,” he added.
He also referred to the tampered EVM in Bhind in Madhya Pradesh and raised doubt that 90 percent of the voting machines were tampered.
Refuting the claim that the machine was malfunctioned, Kejriwal said “If there was some defect, then some machines would have voted for the Congress, some for the AAP and some for the BJP. But why are all defective machines voting only for the BJP?. It means this is not a malfunction but the software of these machines have been tampered with or has been completely changed.”
Kejriwal had earlier demanded the use of paper ballot in Delhi’s civic polls.
