Andhra Pradesh: TDP Files Complaint Over Shifting of EVMs From Strongroom

Election authorities, however, said the equipment that has been shifted were either not used on the election day or defective.

Machilipatnam: TDP candidate for the Nuzvid Assembly seat M Venkateswara Rao Sunday lodged a complaint with the Election Commission, saying polling equipment have been shifted from strongroom without any intimation.

He said the equipment was taken from the Nuzvid Assembly segment and were stored in the strongroom at Machilipatnam Krishna University campus after polling was held on April 11.

Election authorities, however, said the equipment that has been shifted were either not used on the election day or defective.

“114 VVPATs, 104 ballot units and 102 control units that were unused in the election or defective have been shifted from the Krishna University campus to the EVM godown,” Returning Officer Swapnil P Dinakar told PTI.

He added that the unused equipment was stored in a separate room and not along with those used for polling.

“We have not touched the sealed strongrooms,” he said.
