Since last few years, the only material that the Congress party used to corner the ruling Modi government was either the Rafale deal or the Electronic Voting Machines. But after the CAG report was out, the Rafale lies of Rahul Gandhi received a final nail in its coffin.
And now the conspiracy theories revolving around Electronic Voting Machines (EVM) have also been punctured after the Chief Election Commissioner Sunil Arora revealed that not even one case of EVM tampering could be proved even in courts.
Days ago the grand alliance had intensified its demand to implement the ballot paper voting for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections and tried to pressurize the election. But now the Congress party-led grand alliance has faced a big embarrassment as the Chief Election Commissioner Sunil Arora said “Most parties reposed their faith in voting through the EVM, though some asked for counting of more VVPAT slips. Some wanted more hands-on demonstrations of the machines to familiarise voters on how to use these machines for voting to instill more confidence”.
He added “Subsequently (after 2014), elections were held in Delhi, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Tripura, Mizoram. There have been different results ever since. But why are EVMs made part of a motivated slugfest?”.
Recently an event was held in London where a man who covered his face and called himself a hacker claimed that 2014 elections were rigged to benefit PM Narendra Modi. While this event was attended by Congress leader Kapil Sibal, the organizers (The British Union of Journalists and the Indian Union of Journalists) had dissociated themselves with it.
Speaking on it, Chief Election Commissioner Sunil Arora said “An FIR has already been filed against the person who claimed to be a former employee of ECIL but, in fact, was not. So far not even one case of EVM tampering could be proved even in courts”.
This has once again proved that EVMs are unable to hack.
