Bengaluru, May 22
In another note of dissent from the Karnataka Congress, MLA K Sudhakar questioned on Wednesday why the issue of alleged EVM manipulation was being brought into the discourse about the Lok Sabha exit poll predictions.
Sudhakar’s stand is contrary to that of Congress, which has joined other Opposition parties in upping the ante on alleged EVM tampering ahead of the counting.
The Congress MLA’s remarks came a day after senior party lawmaker Roshan Baig unleashed a scathing attack on its state leadership, calling Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) chief Dinesh Gundu Rao a “flop show” and party general secretary KC Venugopal a “buffoon”.
Sudhakar, who had often been vocal in airing his grievances against the Congress-JD(S) government, tweeted on Tuesday night, saying that EVM tampering and exit polls were two different things. The Chikkaballapura MLA tweeted: “Personally, I am confused why the issue of EVM manipulation is being brought into the conversation while talking about exit poll results. When, in fact, the exit poll results indicate the feeling of the voter at the conclusion of polling.” — PTI
