EC working to minimise incidents of EVM machine malfunction

New Delhi: Electronic Voting Machines cannot be tampered with, Chief Election Commissioner Sunil Arora asserted on Thursday.

He also lamented EVMs being “tossed like a football” in political discourse.

       The CEC said the Election Commission is striving to ensure that incidents of EVM malfunctions reported during polls are reduced to a minimum.

       There were 1.76 lakh polling booths in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, Mizoram and Telangana, where assembly elections were held recently but there were very few incidents of EVM malfunctioning (less than one per cent) of the total machines deployed, he said.
