Mumbai: NCP president Sharad Pawar has asked party workers at the booth level to be alert about EVM behaviour on the polling day, reiterating the opposition’s allegation that the electronic voting machines can be tampered with — notwithstanding the wins of opposition parties in some Assembly elections and by-polls.

Many opposition parties have been accusing that EVMs could be tampered with. These parties have again demanded of the Election Commission that it resumes voting using the ballot papers.

The commission has, however, said repeatedly that EVMs cannot be tampered with and cannot be hacked.

Addressing party workers via video-conferencing in the Beed district of Maharashtra on Saturday, Pawar said, “BJP cannot be trusted. You go to the polling booths on the day of voting and see if the voting is happening properly or not.”

NCP State president Jayant Patil interacted with party workers on the occasion too.
The top leaders of several opposition parties had raised the issue of alleged fiddling with EVM last month in New Delhi.
