HC rejects AAP's plea for paper trail EVMs in MCD polls

Posted April 23, 2017

Many of the Delhi voters, from different walks of life were impressed by PM Modi's work at the Centre and expressed confidence that the Delhi municipality too will work more effectively under Modi's watch.

In terms of MCD, the national capital has been divided into three zones, namely east, north and south. The results will be announced on April 26. "But, many voters, who voted for change in 2015, are going back to the BJP", says Yadav's letter.

For the first time in MCD elections, None Of The Above (NOTA) option will be available.

We have massive game next week at Old Trafford. "But I have reinforced this point that we have to play under this pressure". Hull's home and away form could not be more chalk and cheese. "We made it hard for ourselves".

The plea, filed by the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) as also by Mohd Tahir Hussain who is a candidate in the Municipal Corporation of Delhi elections, has contended that the Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) to be used in the polls were obsolete and open to tampering. Other parties in the fray include Bahujan Samaj Party, the Janata Dal-United, the Rashtriya Janata Dal and the Shiv Sena. Delhi has 70 Assembly seats and before the delimitation, every constituency had four wards, but, now it ranges from 3-7.

Interestingly, the BJP president was personally monitoring party's preparations for the high-stake MCD polls right from the distribution of tickets to campaigning and poll management. The Congress also made a similar demand.

He said the Election Commission's refusal to hold an independent investigation into any allegation had only increased the suspicion about EVMs.
