During the counting of votes in MCD polls on Wednesday, the Bhartiya Janata Party has emerged as clear winner. The Aam Aadmi Party and the Congress are fighting for second position in the MCD results.
With the trends showing a certain loss of Aam Aadmi Party, its leader Gopal Rai attributed failure to the EVMs. Gopal said that this is not Modi wave but this is EVM wave.
Here is the account of who said what after the trends showing BJP win in MCD polls:
# Think President should dismiss Delhi Govt and order fresh elections. AAP support has evaporated. It was done in 1977, SC also upheld it: Subramanian Swamy
# We have zero expectations. But anything we get above that is a plus for us. We focussed on the issues on ground rather than talking about Kashmir or other things, says Swaraj India Party's chief Yogendra Yadav
# Kejriwal was elected as CM on this EVMs only, they should reply on this: Amit Shah
# Election Commission should investigate electronic voting machines. While if we can't trust EVM, we must trust EC: Ajay Maken
# We have made a reasonable comeback, but I had hoped to do better in MCD Election 2017: Ajay Maken, Congress
# EVM tampering behind BJP performance: AAP leader Ashutosh
# People of Delhi have rejected the politics of accusations, says Amit Shah

# EVM tampering is a bitter truth in our democracy which can be mocked early on but we cannot stop talking truth on it, says Manish Sisodia
# Neither they did research on EVMs but their leaders GBL Narsimha Rao and LK Advani have also written books on it: Manish Sisodia
# After losing 2009 elections, BJP did research on EVMs for five years and they are winning elections because of it, Manish Sisodia
# Winning and losing is a part of democracy, one must accept mandate of the people with maturity: Nitin Gadkari
