It is likely that Karnataka Congress and JD(S) will press the Election Commission for poll on ballot paper. The parties are likely to boycott elections if Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) are used. This decision might be the result of BJP's victory in Uttar Pradesh where EVMs were used. Surprisingly BJP candidates lost badly where ballot papers were used for voting . BJP has only won 15 percent seats in ballot paper areas and 46 percent in EVM areas. Now the parties have started to claim that EVMs are being manipulated by BJP.
