EVM issue:Delhi CM Kejriwal asks EC to release machines for investigation

He added that the Indian democracy was "under threat" as people would lose trust in the election process if EVMs continued to be used and tampered with during polls. He said for 236 polling booths in the constituency, the authorities have facilitated 355 VVPAT machines.

"The AAP is free to file an election petition in the state high court if it wants to verify votes cast in the Punjab polls with data of paper trail", the EC said in a strongly-worded letter to the party.

It recalled that, in 2009, all who had complained about the rigging of voting machines had been invited to prove their charges but none could demonstrate how the machines could be tampered with.

Will Oakland kick the Raiders out of the Coliseum?
Here's my take on the Raiders, and a certain other National Football League team that knows exactly what it's doing to its fans. Foster also had 124 combined tackles, one sack, and three defended passes. "They simply want to keep the team in Buffalo".

April. 2: Even as the call for probe on "faulty" Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) is growing louder among political parties post the assembly polls, Samajwadi Party leader and Mulayam Singh Yadav's daughter-in-law Aparna Yadav joined the chorus on Sunday asking to either declare the recently-concluded election results as null and void or conduct future elections on ballot paper.

Earlier, when the EVMs were defective, if a voter pressed the button for one party, the light for that would not glow.

He also asked the Election Commission to hand over to the AAP the faulty EVM in Madhya Pradesh for 72 hours.

Should you give your kids access to your credit card?
In fact, almost 9 in 10 cardholders (89%) received a higher credit limit when they asked their credit card issuer. So that's an 82% success rate. "People would be stunned at how successful you could be at these requests".

Dismissing the allegations of EVM tampering, the Commission said various High Courts had also unequivocally reiterated that, given the effective technical and administrative safeguards, the voting machines could not be tampered and integrity of the electoral process was fully preserved. The party had moved the EC over the reliability of EVMs and the results of the recently-concluded Punjab polls.

The Union Minister for Science and Technology said Kejriwal will soon demand the Election Commission be handed over to the Delhi government. "Only the VVPAT machines which were kept in reserve and not used during the actual poll, have been redeployed". Hence, the VVPATs that were sent to Bhind had the previous symbols loaded from Uttar Pradesh. "This is standard protocol and there is nothing amiss in this", it stated. According to standard protocol, the old symbols are erased only during first level checking before the next poll.

"For Arvind Kejriwal, EVM stands for "Everyone Votes Modiji" I'm sure he'll soon demand the Election Commission be handed over to Delhi gov??"
