In a major development to the Electronic Voting Machine (EVM) tampering issue, the Supreme Court on Tuesday said that it will hear the matter on March 24.

Reports suggested that the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati on Wednesday had said that she will move court against the alleged tampering of the EVMs by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the recently concluded Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections.

After the Assembly results were announced on March 11, Mayawati had alleged that the EVMs were tampered with by the BJP.

Opposition members in the Rajya Sabha on Tuesday also raised the EVM issue and demanded a thorough probe into the matter.
