Delhi MCD elections to be held in April

New Delhi [India], Mar. 14 : The general election to three municipal corporations of Delhi will be held in April. Meanwhile, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has written to the Election Commission not to use Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) and rather conduct the polling through ballot system.

This comes following allegations from few politicians that the EVMs could be tampered with. After the Uttar Pradesh Assembly election results on March 11, Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati had accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of tampering with the EVMs and demanded a fresh poll through ballot papers.

Mayawati also said that she would write to the Election Commission to conduct fresh polls in the state.

The poll panel has started sending requisitions to various departments of Central and state governments including civic bodies to spare their employees for the same.
