TDP President Seeks paper ballot system

Vastavam web: TDP President Chandrababu Naidu has advised the Election Commission of India (ECI) to get back to old polling system i.e. paper ballot system, while expressing concerns over the malfunctioning of electronic voting machines (EVMs) at several polling stations in AP.

Several malafide actions took place in the just concluded Lok Sabha and Assembly elections in Andhra Pradesh. The election process totally lacked transparency and this has created many doubts about the voting process. The Election Commission had failed to maintain its transparency, impartiality and professionalism,” Naidu stated in a letter submitted to the ECI.

“Security arrangements were not upto the mark at the polling stations and this gave a free hand to criminal elements during the election day,” remarked Naidu.
