Demanding an inquiry by a commission into the alleged Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) manipulation, former Union Minister and Congress candidate in Warangal parliamentary by-election, Sarve Sathyanarayana, who forfeited his deposit, has alleged that the ruling TRS has won the election by manipulating EVMs and said the election result was not people’s verdict.
Speaking to the media at Gandhi Bhavan here on Friday, Sarve alleged the ruling party faced severe public opposition during the election campaign and as part of it the people pulled up the ministers and TRS leaders.
He also said he would wage a legal war against the government in case it failed to order an open inquiry into the tampering of EVMs.
He asked the Chief Minister to address a letter to the Election Commission within three days seeking a probe or else he would wage a legal fight against the government.
Declaring that he salute Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao if it was found that the EVMs were okay during the polling, Sarve asked KCR to tender his resignation in case the EVMs were found to be not correct.
Sarve alleged that the TRS leaders manipulated EVMs since the Cantonment elections. Pointing out that the TRS never got such a huge majority even during the separate Telangana movement, Sarve made it clear that the TRS got huge majority and Congress lost its deposit because of the manipulation of EVMs by the ruling TRS party.
