After having lost Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) polls, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Wednesday again cried foul alleging tampering of Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) used for the polling and rejected the idea of Narendra Modi wave.
Asserting that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is winning because of the rigged EVMs, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia alleged that the extensive research done by G V L Narashima Rao and L K Advani on the working of EVMs following 2009 general election is being used by the party to rig the machines.
Echoing similar opinion, Minister Gopal Rai said that the saffron sweep in the civic polls is nothing less than miracle which took place because of the tampering of EVMs.
"The BJP has been governing the MCD from past 10 years and we all know that they have done nothing and still the way the BJP is winning is nothing less than a miracle. This miracle is not an outcome of Modi wave but is the result of EVM wave," Rai said.
"This has put democracy in danger. The AAP will evaluate the situation after final results are declared and then chalk a strategy," he added.
Senior AAP leader Ashutosh also accused the BJP, stating it is not possible for the party to win after brewing corruption in the corporations for 10 years and that the victory is a result of manipulated EVMs.
