Dimapur, March 11, 2018: OP Rawat, Chief Election Commissioner said that the malfunctioning of Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) in the recent election to the 13th Nagaland Legislative Assembly were mainly due to bad road conditions.

CEC told the media that while road conditions in India are now improving, "when they go to polling stations like those in Nagaland, where road conditions are just not there," malfunctioning of EVMs were reported.

"It takes four hours from Dimapur to Kohima, When these machines are transported in trucks on such roads, they create some problems with the electronics of the machine," he said while giving reason for many reported cases of EVM-malfunctioning cases in the recently concluded elections.
