New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday dismissed a plea which questioned the use of electronic voting machines (EVMs) in polls and sought cancellation of the recently concluded Lok Sabha elections.

A bench headed by Justice RF Nariman termed the PIL filed by lawyer ML Sharma as "devoid of merits" and dismissed it.

"What are you asking for Sharma. You want us to set aside the entire Lok Sabha elections," the bench asked.
