Opposition leaders meet EC regarding tallying of VVPAT slips with EVM figures

A delegation of 22 opposition parties today urged the Election Commission that the verification of VVPAT slips of five randomly identified polling stations should be done prior to the initiation of counting of votes and not after the completion of last round of counting.

The leaders demanded that if any discrepancy is found anywhere during the VVPAT verification, 100 per cent counting of paper slips of VVPATs of all polling stations of that assembly segment should be done. Leaders who met the election commission from the different parties include Congress, TDP, Left Parties, BSP, NCP, TMC, RJD and Aam Aadmi Party.

They raised the issue of tallying VVPATs with EVM figures. Talking to media in New Delhi after meeting the EC, senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad said, the opposition parties demanded tallying of VVPAT slips with EVM figures in an entire Assembly constituency in case discrepancy is found in any polling booth.
