    Atishi Marlena told reporters that cases of EVM malfunctioning were also reported during polls in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Uttarakhand.

    The one thing common in all cases was that the vote went to the BJP no matter which button was pressed, she claimed. "These cases should be thoroughly investigated by the Election Commission," she said.

    The AAP, which is contesting the UP civic body polls, has demanded that ballot papers be used in the elections. The party has in the past too raised doubts over the functioning of EVMs.
