At rally in Bihar, Modi hails SC verdict on EVMs; slams opposition

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday asserted that the Supreme Court judgment on cross-verification of votes was a “tight slap” on the Congress-led opposition which must “apologise” for committing the “sin of creating distrust” against Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs).

Addressing an election rally in Araria Lok Sabha constituency in Bihar, he also charged the opposition with trying to “steal” reservations meant for OBCs, SCs and STs “for the sake of their favourite vote bank of Muslims”.

“When the Congress, the RJD and other INDIA bloc parties were in power, the poor, backwards and Dalits used to be deprived of their votes through booth capture. With the introduction of Electronic Voting Machines, they are no longer able to play their old game. Hence, they committed the sin of creating distrust against EVMs,” alleged the prime minister.
