EC writes to TDP, questions presence of EVM theft accused in Naidu's delegation

DD News
The Election Commission has written to the Telugu Desam Party asking how a person with criminal antecedents could be a part of a delegation led by its chief N Chandrababu Naidu during his visit to the poll panel.
 
The EC in its letter has said when Naidu visited today, he was accompanied by one Hari Prasad who repeatedly raised various technical issues regarding the functioning of EVMs and claimed that he had the technical expertise in the field. 

The letter stated that it was decided that Prasad would get a detailed briefing from the technical team of the EC.

The commission said Hari Prasad who was involved in a criminal case regarding alleged theft of EVM machine in 2010 which an FIR was filed...Whatever may be the eventual outcome of the investigation, it would be appreciated that such antecedents do not inspire confidence. 

The Andhra Pradesh chief minister met Chief Election Commissioner Sunil Arora and submitted a memorandum alleging that a large number of EVMs malfunctioned during polling in the state on Thursday and inadequate security led to incidents of violence.
