Govt rubbishes claims about EVM tampering

23 Mar 2017

The Union government today rubbished claims about EVM tampering even as it promised all support to the Election Commission's endeavour of maximising the use of voting machines with paper trail, but in a phased-manner. Union law minister Ravi Shankar Prasad, while replying to a debate on Electoral Reforms in the Rajya Sabha, however, did not give a direct response to questions by the opposition with regard to Rs 3,000 crore sought by the EC for having poll machines with paper trail adequate enough for the entire country.
