BJP ally Shiv Sena and opposition Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) on Tuesday raised doubts regarding electronic voting machines (EVMs) after the Karnataka Assembly election results were declared.

"If you (BJP) trust yourself, hold elections through ballot papers once", Uddhav Thackeray said, reacting to the Karnataka election results.

"If the Bharatiya Janata Party is so confident, then it should conduct 2019 elections with ballot paper in a free and fair atmosphere. All the apprehensions will go away", Uddhav Thackeray said.

"The BJP humiliated the Vanga family and we are contesting the election to help them get justice", he said.
