Modi On Chandrababu EVM Issue
Finally, Prime Minister Narendra Modi made a strong counter to Andhra Pradesh CM Nara Chandrababu Naidu’s ongoing agitation against the Electronic Voting Machines (EVM). Modi said that the BJP’s rivals have realised how they are losing the election in the first three phases itself. This is why they are now blaming the EVM’s.
Modi also countered that Chandrababu Naidu has made EVM’s a single point agenda to target him as he knows already their allies are losing. Modi satirically mocked and said that the opposition leaders are blaming the EVM’s which is like they blame the umpire in cricket when they are declared ‘out’.
Modi’s strong counter came after the 22 anti-BJP parties are in a legal battle about transparency in EVM’s credibility and to count 50per-cent VVPAT slips under the leadership of Chandrababu Naidu. Later Supreme Court directed EC to count 5 per-cent VVPAT slips. May 23rd is approaching political parties are tensed about their future.
