Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday said that his party is ready to do "whatever is needed to save the country from Modi ji and Amit Shah ji". Kejriwal was reacting on a query relating to AAP's decision on an alliance with Congress.
"Our efforts will continue till the end," Kejriwal noted.
"If BJP does not want Voter Verifies Paper Audit Trail (VVPAT) to be counted, then why did they spend 9,000 crores on the Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs)? They do not want VVPAT to be counted since they are benefiting from the laxity," CM Kejriwal told media persons on Sunday.
The Delhi chief minister also alleged that the Election Commission (EC) only listens to concerns of the BJP.

Just a day ago, Andhra CM and TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu demanded the Election Commission of India (ECI) revert to the ballot system.
Naidu raised questions over the efficacy of the electronic voting machines (EVM) and said that going back to the paper system should be done immediately to "preserve the sanctity and protect the spirit of the electoral process and democracy."
The TDP supremo met officials of the ECI on Saturday over the issue of EVM malfunctioning in the ongoing Lok Sabha elections.
