Election Commission gets notice on EVMs

india Updated: Apr 18, 2009 14:53 IST

The Madhya Pradesh High Court has issued notice to the Election Commission on a public suit that seeks to prevent the use of defective electronic voting machines (EVMs) in the Lok Sabha polls.

The petitioner, former Bharatiya Janata Party legislator Shailendra Pradhan, has alleged defective EVMs were used even in the 2008 assembly elections.

"Admitting the petition a division bench comprising Chief Justice AK Patnaik and Justice Ajeet Singh on Friday issued notices to the Election Commission, the State Election Commission and the government to file their reply within six weeks," Pradhan told IANS Saturday.
