Kolkata, April 11 (IANS) Terming the opposition parties' allegations of EVM tampering in the recent Uttar Pradesh elections, as "petty excuses", BJP leader Syed Shahnawaz Hussain on Tuesday said they should look at their shortcomings instead of finding flaw in a good system.

"We suggest the opposition look at their own shortcomings for the loss instead of finding flaws in the EVMs," Hussain, the Bharatiya Janata Party's national spokesperson, said at a press conference here.

"When (Aam Aadmi Party leader Arvind) Kejriwal won the election in Delhi or when the opposition won in Bihar, everything was good about the EVM then. They only started finding its flaws when they lost the election in UP These are nothing but excuses," he said.

Hussain said the result of the Uttar Pradesh polls reflect people's stern response against the opposition's policy of hampering the nation's progress.

"They opposed demonetisation and tried to hinder the economic progress of the nation. The people gave them such a strong reply which got reflected in the election results,"he added.
