Joining the anti-EVM chorus, All India Congress Committee (AICC) General Secretary Digvijaya Singh on Tuesday said that Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) are not at all credible and example of their faulty functioning has come to the fore in Madhya Pradesh already.

Bhopal: Joining the anti-EVM chorus, All India Congress Committee (AICC) General Secretary Digvijaya Singh on Tuesday said that Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) are not at all credible and example of their faulty functioning has come to the fore in Madhya Pradesh already.

Talking to media in Jabalpur, Singh said that even developed countries prefer ballot paper over EVMs, why India is not doing the same.

Recently, during a demonstration in MP's Bhind, the VVPAT machines attached to the EVMs were offering voting slip in favour of BJP’s poll symbol lotus, irrespective of the buttons pressed on the EVMs.

Election Commission of India had ordered a probe into the alleged EVM malfunctioning, removing 19 officers including the collector, SP, and others for the goof up.

Taking a swipe at BJP over demonetisation, the former Madhya Pradesh chief minister said that the Centre had failed miserably to achieve demonetisation goals, and it was a huge scam.

Singh, who was in charge of Goa during recent assembly polls, on being asked about missing the chance to form the government in the state, asked Goa chief minister Manohar Parrikar to apologise to the public for forming the government without having the public support.

Replying to queries on the adverse comment by CM Shivraj on Scindias, Singh said that it (comments) exposes his thinking and character.

The senior Congress leader also accused CM Chouhan and kin of being involved in illegal mining.

On the state of affairs in Congress party, the AICC general secretary said that the only challenge the party faces these days is to improve itself.
