Khaira fears EVMs

will be manipulated

Jalandhar, December 16- Sukhpal Singh Khaira, AAP MLA and Leader of the Opposition in the Assembly, today expressed fears over the manipulation of EVMs in the MC elections.
Addressing a rally till 5 pm today in the Garha locality here, Khaira violated the code of conduct by overshooting the campaigning deadline of 4 pm.
Khaira said, “There are all chances of the manipulation of machines during the elections if there is no VVPAT for the EVMs. During the UP elections, many discrepancies came to the fore. While people voted for A party, the votes went to the B party. The Election Commission must take corrective measures.”
On the SAD’s foundation day celebrations, Khaira said, “Whenever the Akali Dal is out of power, it remembers Panthic issues. Their leaders then rake up issues like Chandigarh’s inclusion in Punjab and call for a federal structure.”
‘Violates’ poll code
    Khaira continued addressing a gathering till 5 pm on Friday despite time for campaigning ending at 4 pm. When asked, Khaira said, “I didn’t know that the deadline was till 4 pm. I thought it was 5 pm. The deadline is usually 5 pm, as also in Assembly elections.”
    Jalandhar DC Varinder Sharma said, “The issue has been brought to my notice an hour back and we are initiating an inquiry into the issue. If any violation comes to the fore, then we will be initiating requisite action.”
