Karnataka CM Kumaraswamy calls exit poll results 'artificially engineered', questions credibility of EVMs

A day after the exit polls were predicted for the different parties contesting in the Lok Sabha election, Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy on Monday criticised the exit poll results and also the Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs). Taking to Twitter, the CM said that the exit poll exercise is "an effort to create a false impression of a wave in favour of one particular leader and the party". He said that the Opposition had earlier expressed concern over the credibility of EVMs under Prime Minister Narendra Modi's rule and had even approached the Supreme Court asking for a traditional ballot paper election to avoid defective EVMs that are vulnerable to fraud. He added that even developed countries vote through the paper ballots.
Taking a swipe at the exit poll results, the CM stressed that it "reiterated the serious concern of the Opposition parties on misuse of vulnerable EVMs for electoral gains by the ruling party". "Entire Opposition political parties had expressed concern over the credibility of EVMs under PM @narendramodi's rule. Opposition parties even knocked the doors of the Supre Court asking for a traditional ballot paper elections to avoid defective EVMs that are vulnerable to fraud," tweeted the CM.
