The battle against EVM and VVPAT has now reached the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court has issued notice to the Election Commission on a joint petition of Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and 21 opposition parties.
A senior executive of the EC asked the court to appear before the court in the next hearing.
In fact, the plea of the Opposition parties had been appealed that the Supreme Court direct the Election Commission to make a quick match of the EVMs and VVPATs used in the EVMs and 50% EVMs registered in the EVM and their partner VVPAT.
The petitioners say that so far the EC matches 4.4 percent EVM and VVPAT. Now the matter will be heard on March 25.
Let us tell you that there was a big meeting between the opposition parties before the announcement of election dates in the past. This petition was churned about this petition.
Significantly, this time VVPat machines will be used along with EVMs in the Lok Sabha elections. This is seen in the last many elections when opposition parties have questioned the election results and also targeted the central government.
The opposition had expressed concern over the EVM after the elections of several other states, including the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections, Delhi elections.
Former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, former Deputy Chief Minister of Bihar, Tashavi Yadav, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has also raised the question of EVM.
However, it has been said every time from the Bharatiya Janata Party that whenever the opposition parties lose the election, EVM pretends, but when they win, they keep silence.
