Guwahati: Opposition Asom Gana Parishad
(AGP) on Sunday said it was against the use of EVMs in the
assembly polls next month as these could be tampered with.
"We had complained to the chief election commissioner
during his visit here that the EVMs could be tampered by
the ruling party (Congress)," AGP President Chandra Mohan
Patowary told reporters here.
"In the past we have seen that EVMs are not a
fool-proof measure for free and fair election and so we have
urged the EC to resort to the old method of ballot boxes ...
Even developed countries as the USA, Germany and France are
still using ballot boxes, so why not in our country ?" he
added.
