Blaming EVMs a new disease: PM Modi attacks Congress

Jun 26, 2019 16:40 IST

Prime Minister Narendra Modi speaking in the Rajya Sabha on Wednesday said that blaming EVMs has become a disease in the country. "Some people kept raising the EVM issue in this House. I want to tell them there was a time when we had just two MPs in the Parliament. People made fun of us. But we worked harder and won the trust of the people. We did not make excuses and blamed polling machines," said PM Modi. In a direct attack on the Congress, he also asked how come parties didn't claim EVM tampering when they won state polls. "There have been so many elections with EVMs and parties that are present in the Rajya Sabha have got opportunities to govern in different states after elections were held through EVMs. Then why question EVMs today?"
