Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Saturday electronic voting machines (EVMs) were being “fudged repeatedly” in elections, remarks that came a day after the Congress party alleged EVM malfunctioning during a media demonstration in Madhya Pradesh.

Kejriwal, the Aam Aadmi Party chief, visited the Election Commission to lodge his protest against EVMs, reiterating that tampering of these devices was a “serious fraud”.

Days before civic elections in the national capital and by-elections in some states, the

Delhi CM also alleged that the software was being changed to make EVMs malfunction. He also demanded that the old ballot boxes --- where people cast their votes in papers --- should be brought back.

The chorus against EVMs gained momentum after the recently held assembly elections in five states.

Opposition parties, including the AAP and Mayawati’s Bahujan Samaj Party, raised the issue, with some sections alleging that EVM tampering helped the Centre’s ruling Bharatiya Janata Party. The Election Commission denied the charges.
