Reports of EVMs replacement completely false: EC


The Election Commission on Tuesday termed the allegations of EVM replacement as “completely false” saying that the alleged clips are of polling machines that are unused.
New Delhi: The Election Commission on Tuesday termed the allegations of EVM replacement as “completely false”, clarifying that alleged clips of EVMs movement pertain to the storage or movement of reserve unused EVMs.

“Complaints of alleged movement of EVMs, purportedly to replace polled EVMs in strongrooms, doing rounds in sections of media. Would like to unambiguously clarify that reports are absolutely false. Visuals seen viral on media do not pertain to any EVMs used during the polls,” EC said.

Earlier today, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar also slammed the opposition for questioning the authenticity of the Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) and Voter-verified paper audit trail (VVPATs) saying that the “baseless allegations” shows how nervous the opposition is ahead of May 23.
