Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on Friday slammed the Congress for raising doubts and questions over EVMs days after the BJP stormed back to power with a landslide margin in the recently held polls. Speaking to media, Union Minister said that the Grand Old party should rather introspect and deliberate upon the reasons of crushing defeat.

Calling the Congress and Opposition parties, an ‘EVM Vilaap Mandli’, BJP Leader said they were earlier pressing for VVPAT tallying and now looking for reasons after no mismatch was found’.

Further training guns towards the Grand Old Party, Naqvi said instead of introspecting the massive defeat in the recently held parliamentary polls, Congress is showing is the feudal mindset and its arrogance by not accepting the people’s mandate.

‘The Congress should realize the ground realities’ he said while adding that the party now only onto negative and frustrating politics and is just a “brand new flop show”.

Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi’s comment came days after UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi claimed that many types of doubts have emerged after the poll results. She made the remarks dropping questions over EVMs during her visit to her Lok Sabha constituency Uttar Pradesh.

During her first visit to her Lok Sabha constituency after mega polls, Gandhi reportedly said “There is a popular saying that there is no smoke without fire’.

Opposition parties, including the Congress, had time and again raised questions and doubts over EVMs and claimed that they can tamper, and can give advantage to incumbent BJP government.

The Congress faced a crushing defeat in national polls and won 52 seats, which is only 8 more than it got in 2014 national polls. It has also lost some of its strongholds across the country including Rahul Gandhi’s Amethi in Uttar Pradesh and Jyotiraditya Scindia‘s Guna in Madhya Pradesh.

It should be noted that Opposition parties including Congress and TDP before the counting of the mega polls have demanded that VVPAT (Voter Verified Paper Audit Trail) slips should be counted before the commencement of counting of votes.

22 Opposition Parties further approached the Top Court and the Poll Commission demanding that at least 50% EVMs should be verified with VVPAT. However, the Supreme Court only allowed the tallying of only 5 VVPAT-EVM verification from each assembly segment.
