CM Devendra Fadnavis attacks opposition parties after EVM spat

Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Friday lashed out at the opposition for blaming the EVMs in regards to their loss in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections while asking them to apologise to the voters. 

CM Fadnavis, who is on a statewide tour ahead of the assembly polls, accused the opposition of not trusting the voters and said that rather than finding fault with the EVMs, the opposition should introspect on why they lost the elections. 

Instead of accepting the truth, the opposition is latching on to the falsehood. The voters may show sympathy to the opposition parties if they went to the public and asked what wrong they did earlier and how can they rectify their mistakes if given a chance,” said CM Fadnavis.

CM Fadnavis further added that some of the opposition leaders and parties have ruled the country and states by winning elections through same EVMs and now they are blaming the same for their loss. 

On Friday morning, several prominent opposition leaders came together to announce their objection against the EVM use and suggested that it was a scam. The opposition has decided to protest against the EVM use in the election process on August 21 in Mumbai.

The opposition leaders including Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray,  Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) Ajit Pawar, Maharashtra Congress President Balasaheb Thorat and others were present at the press conference.
