Hoping To Score A 10, Congress Wants Army At Strong Rooms
Congress on Thursday was beaming in the hope of winning at least 10 seats out of total 17 Lok Sabha seats, also was worried about EVM electronic voting machines and their storage. Congress wants to post an army or central reserve police force to guard the strong rooms where these machines will be stored, till 23rd May which is the counting day of Lok Sabha elections.
Hoping that the Congress party would thump TRS this time, even though Komatireddy Venkat Reddy a Bhuvanagiri candidate, came across some faulty EVM machines at about 10 places. The faulty EVM machines accrued the votes of the Congress to the ruling party TRS.
This time the public was favourable to vote for Congress, rather than TRS in December assembly elections. This was a great hope for the Congress party that the public will surely exercise franchise in favour of the party and that the people were not much excited to vote for the now ruling Party.
Also, the party members have asked to shift the spare EVM machines to be sealed or send to other states.
