EVMs: BJP ‘lets down’ TRS
Special Correspondent, The Hindu, Jul 11, 2010

– Did not go for mass filing of nomination papers
– BJP Central leadership not totally against EVMs
– KCR’s daughter to campaign in Nizamabad on July 12 and 13

HYDERABAD: The Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) had suggested to the BJP with which the former has seat sharing arrangement in the coming by-elections to ensure mass filing of nominations but obviously its efforts failed.

TRS leaders insisted that they had asked the BJP to follow suit in Nizamabad (Urban) constituency as in the remaining eleven segments where activists of the former filed nominations in large numbers to compel the Election Commission to introduce electronic voting machines in the polls. But, the BJP did not oblige.

BJP former president B. Dattatreya said the TRS had indeed made such a suggestion and his party had even decided to see that 70 to 75 candidates filed nominations. However, the Central leadership was averse to the whole idea because the party was not totally against EVMs.

On the other hand, the TRS was of the view that it would have asked its cadre to file nominations en masse in Nizamabad (Urban) if the BJP had expressed its inability. (మరింత…)
