Cong finds fault with EVMs after civic poll rout

“All EVMs were made by a Hyderabad-based company for the state government eight years ago. Therefore, it is the state government which has control over them. I believe they have tampered with the EVMs,” senior Congress leader Shankarsinh Vaghela alleged.

“It (BJP win) is not Narendra Modi’s magic. It is machine magic which has brought victory to the saffron party. The municipal polls do not reflect public opinion,” the former Union Minister said.

Modi hits back
Replying to the allegations, Chief Minister Narendra Modi shot back. “Congress people should understand that it is not the machine magic but magic of people’s ire which has brought these results.”

“Even Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has said that EVMs cannot be tampered with. If they do not want to believe us, they should believe their own Prime Minister,” the chief minister, who campaigned extensively in run up to the October 10 election, said while addressing a public rally in Godhra.
