Hyderabad: Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee’s Uttam Kumar Reddy has alleged errors in the counting of votes for the assembly elections in the state.
He suggested that VVPAT slips should be counted to ensure transparency, he also stated that his party has doubts on ballot paper counting and also hinted at tampering in EVM.
He said “I am having doubts on results we’re getting in Telangana ballot paper counting. We doubt that tampering could have been done in EVMs. Slips should be counted in VVPATs.”
The Congress delegation has also submitted a complaint to Telangana Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) Rajat Kumar regarding the same.
TRS MP from Nizamabad, K Kavitha hit back Reddy’s claims and termed his allegation as “totally false”.
Kavitha stated that “The losing party always says the EVMs have been tampered with, this is absolutely false. Even the CEC in a press meeting yesterday said that it is not possible to tamper EVMs. People have given victory to TRS, what Congress is claiming is false.”
