Opposition Parties Complain to Election Commission Against BJP's Name Under Its Symbol on EVMs
Opposition parties yesterday approached the Election Commission alleging display of party name only under the BJP symbol on EVMs during a mock poll in West Bengal’s Barrackpore constituency. However, the poll panel said the same insignia has been under use since 2013.
A delegation of opposition parties comprising senior Congress leaders Abhishek Manu Singhvi and Ahmed Patel and Trinamool Congress’ Dinesh Trivedi and Derek O’Brien met Chief Election Commissioner Sunil Arora over the issue. They demanded that either all such EVMs be removed from the remaining phases of elections or names of other parties be added too.
