If I fear losing, I would’ve locked myself in my house: AP CM

 Soon as the polling began in Andhra Pradesh, complaints of EVM malfunctioning poured in and TDP national president and AP Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu slammed the Election Commission of India (ECI) for its negligent attitude in conducting the elections. 
 
After the polling completed in the midnight, he held a teleconference with his party candidates and leaders to take stock of the situation. With many of the candidates complaining about how polling was delayed due to technical glitches in the EVMs and VVPATs, Naidu headed to Delhi to take up the issue with the ECI. 
 
He told the Chief Election Commissioner Sunil Arora that EVMs were tamperable and hence, demanded verification of 50 pc of the VVPAT slips with the EVMs to satisfy both the political parties and the electorate. 
 
If this is done, they will have belief that their votes were polled properly and that the votes are valid, he said. Later
