EVM row: Arvind Kejriwal questions EC, calls it a ‘puppet’


Aam Aadmi Party leader and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal hit out at Election Commission over EVM tampering row.

Ahead of the MCD election in the Capital, AAP chief said, "Chunaav aayog Dhritrashtra ban gaya hai jo apne bete Duryodhan ko saam daam dand bhed karke satta mein pohuchana chahta hai" (Election Commission has become Dhritarashtra who wants to ensure his son Duryodhana gets power at any cost).

Kejriwal’s comments came after the Election Commission asked the Aam Aadmi Party to introspect over its loss in the Assembly elections rather than pointing fingers at EVMs and EC. “It is unfair on your part to attribute an unsatisfactory poll performance of your party to the alleged tampering of EVMS. To verify the vote cast in the recently concluded Assembly polls, the party was free to file an election petition in the High Court,” the EC told Aam Aadmi Party on Monday. “No credible material had been brought to the knowledge of authorities during and at the time of EVM ‘mock drills’ in Punjab elections to show alleged tampering in EVMs used in the state,” the poll panel said.
