Akali Leader Demands All-party Meeting on EVMs

A day after the Supreme Court refused to take up EVM plea for hearing and asked the petition to move Election Commission (EC) instead, Shiromani Akali Dal president Sukhbir Singh Badal has demanded that the EC should hold an all-party meeting to reach a consensus on the reliability and non-corruptibility of EVMs and their use in the future elections.

Citing in an statement issued in Chandigarh that most of the NDA allies have apprehensions about corruptibility of EVMs, Badal said that it becomes the prime duty of EC to either restore faith of people in the objectivity of election process or revert back to old process of ballot papers.

Referring to the apex court’s observation on the issue, he said that this relook on the corruptibility of EVMs has become much more imperative now.

Badal said that Leader of Opposition L K Advani had already aired his fears about EVMs being hacked in favour of a particular candidate.
