Congress may tamper with EVMs in UP: Akhilesh Yadav

Samajwadi Party leader Akhilesh Yadav has alleged that the Congress party may try to manipulate the Electronic Voting Machines to avoid finishing fourth in the elections. The SP leader said that he had heard that some dummy EVMs had been confiscated in Lucknow after water apparently seeped into some machines, which, he said looked like some conspiracy to him.

In an interview, he also said that if there was no tampering with the EVMs, Congress would finish in the fourth position in the elections. Meanwhile, Uttar Pradesh’s chief electoral officer refuted the charges saying that the EVMs can’t be manipulated.
