EVM result should be verified with VVPATs : Dinesh

Odisha polls

West Bengal Trinamool Congress (TMC) leader Dinesh Trivedi has urged the Election Commission of India to ensure transparency and fairness in the counting process by verifying EVM results with VVPATs.

” What harm will be done if paper trail is counted first? ” Mr Trivedi tweeted, urging the EC to take the decision for democracy.

” ECI must keep its integrity. What harm will be done if paper trail counted first? This will remove doubts. Do it for Democracy,”he remarked.

” Can the EC give one good reason why they would not heed to the logical demand of the Opposition of tallying of votes with paper trail first ? ” he asked.
