Addressing a press conference in Dehradun today, he advocated the BSP Chief Mayawati’s stand about doubt on functioning of EVM’s.

He said, Mayawati is a senior political leader of the country and what she alleged about the EVM’s should be investigated thoroughly. Mr Rawat said, it is necessary to clear all the doubts in the interest of transparency in voting system.

The Election Commission yesterday rejected Mayawati’s allegations of EVM tampering in UP assembly elections saying there is no merit in the allegations. The poll body also quoted court orders endorsing EVMs and said Mayawati’s demand for probe is legally not tenable.

In reply to BSP letter, the Commission said, it has been successfully using EVMs since 2000 in every election and have full confidence on their absolute credibility. The poll panel said, the credibility of EVMs has also been successfully recognized by the courts on several occasions.
