Something wrong with EVMs, need to study them: Pitroda

AHMEDABAD, Apr 18: Technocrat-turned-politician Sam Pitroda on Thursday said he feels there is something wrong with the electronic voting machines (EVM).
The Congress leader said he cannot pinpoint the flaw immediately and would need to study the machine for that.
“As an engineer, as a technical expert, I am not satisfied with the EVMs,” Pitroda said at a press conference here.
“But I have not been able to pinpoint it because I do not have an EVM. If someone gives me an EVM to study for a year, then I can say something,” he said.
Opposition parties recently demanded counting of at least 50 percent of Voter Verifiable Paper Audit Trail slips during the Lok Sabha elections, claiming that the EVMs’ reliability was doubtful.
