Azamgarh: Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav on Thursday expressed concern over reports of EVM malfunctions in some parts of the Uttar Pradesh where polling for the second phase of the Lok Sabha polls are taking place and asked the Election Commission to take immediate steps to rectify them, reports NDTV.

Yadav, who arrived to file his nomination papers, said he has been apprised about EVM malfunction in Bulandshahr and some other places.

“It is the responsibility of the EC to rectify the problem within 15 minutes where ever there are reports of EVM malfunction so that polling is held undisturbed,” the SP president said.

Yadav said people are not able to depend on the technology and the EC as well as the government should assure the people about it.
