Shibli Faraz said that their EVM machine is operated via a battery and could remain operational for 24 hours on it.

“Opposition could have reservations on the EVM and we tried to allay those concerns, however, they adopted the tone to oppose anything coming from our side.”

He said that the opposition wanted similar elections in which they rigged the entire process. “Even our allies had concerns over the EVM but we addressed their concerns,” he said.
