EVM Controversy: Election Commission Throws Challenge To Tamper Them
New Delhi: Amidst raging controversy over Electronic Voting Machines tampered during recently held elections in five States, the Election Commission has thrown an open challenge to prove that EVMs’ can be tampered with. It is likely to take place in the first week of May.
The challenge will be open for ten days to people not only from political parties but also those from the field of technology. It would be held in Nirvachan Sadan, New Delhi as a four level challenge.
The political parties that lost elections started criticising EVMs and demanded the return of ballot paper. Parties like Congress, AAP, SP and BSP criticised the functioning of EVMs and conveyed their unhappiness to the Election Commission.
The Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal recently challenged the EC that he would prove within 72 hours that EVMs are not foolproof and can be tampered with.
