He said there was an attempt to weaken democracy and democratic processes by the ruling government. In a statement issued here on Saturday, Vikramaditya said that a number of reports of voter complaints poured in from across the country regarding malfunctioning EVMs. He said that in the ensuing Lok Sabha elections in Jammu & Kashmir, several complaints of non-functional EVMs leading to a delay in voting have come in from several places. He highlighted glitches like the choice of buttons for some parties either missing from the EVMs or not working, or on pressing any one of the choices, the vote registered on the VVPAT was recording it under the BJPs election symbol. Vikramaditya also mentioned that on 18th April that was polling day of Kathua-Udhampur-Doda Lok Sabha, there were several complaints from voters across polling booths of six districts, regarding malfunctioning of EVMs, alleging that their votes were going to the BJP even if they hit the button for another candidate. He said he had taken up these complaints on the same day with the Election Commission and their Returning Officers. Vikramaditya however appealed to the Election Commission of India to take serious note and action, regarding voter complaints and EVM malfunctioning on an urgent and speedy basis in order to ensure free and fair elections. Vikramaditya Singh reiterated that the Indian National Congress is committed to establish peace and tranquility in the State and to strengthen regional and sub-regional integration. He hoped that Congress will win several Parliamentary Lok Sabha seats in the State with the large confidence and support of people.
