AP Chief Minister and TDP Chief Chandrababu Naidu renewed his charges of a possible malfunction of EVMs and demanded Election Commission to go for counting from VVPATs as well as per his earlier requests.
Speaking at a press conference earlier today Babu rubbished the exit polls which predicted a clear win for the Modi led National Democratic Alliance( NDA) in centre and YSRCP in the state.
"At every election, surveys will be done. It has become a habit for one and all to get surveys done. TDP has been doing surveys since 1983. It is not new for us to hold surveys. I am 1000% confident, TDP will win the elections," he added.
On Sunday, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamta Banerjee also made light of the exit polls and called them mere gimmicks to confuse the people.
Meanwhile, Naidu who is meeting opposition leaders across the nation to set up a strong anti- BJP front argued that VVPATs must be counted first to ensure every party gets fair treatment and malpractices of BJP are exposed. Over the last few days, Naidu met Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi, Arvind Kejriwal, Seetaram Yechury and Sharad Pawar among others for a possible post-poll alliance.
"There are doubts that the EVMs may be changed by using frequency. I am not vouching for that but such doubts are being heard. There may be such a possibility to do so", said Naidu in conclusion
