New Delhi: A day after Delhi Congress chief demanded that the forthcoming polls be held through instead of Electronic Voting Machines, Chief Minister Arvind has directed Chief Secretary to write to the urging the same. Sources said today that Mr Kejriwal has directed Delhi Chief Secretary to write to EC to conduct MCD polls through paper ballot system instead of EVMs. "I want @ArvindKejriwal to hold MCD elections through BallotPapers," the Congres chief tweeted yesterday.

In another tweet he said, 'Delhi PCC is writing a letter to Kejriwal to hold MCD elections on the ballot papers! Not prejudiced-nor casting aspersions on recent elections.

Notably, the State Election Commission will hold a press conference today at around 1700 hrs on the MCD polls. (UNI)
