CM slams opposition parties over EVMs:
“The Opposition parties have come together and declared ‘Elgar’ on EVMs. They have not understood the simple fact that EVM is a machine. If they interact with people, these parties could garner votes. But the depressed and disappointed Opposition leaders are blaming EVMs for their drubbing in polls. People’s mandate and Indian democracy must be trusted by these opposition parties,” Fadnavis stated.
