The AAP said sought monitoring of EVMs with triple-layered security for the strong room and the deployment of paramilitary forces outside the strong room, including the current police security. “Adequate number of CCTV cameras should be installed inside and outside the strong room. The movement of people inside the strong room should be recorded on CCTV and online link of live feed should be provided to all the candidates to clear their doubts,” he wrote.

Earlier, leader of opposition Harpal Singh Cheema had made a similar request to the poll panel.
