EVM CONTROVERSY IN INDIA: Electronic Voting Machine

In 1980, M. B. Haneefa when invented the first Indian voting machine had not even imagined the temporality of this machine which now a day became the hottest topic in the Great Political Battlefield of India.

The Uttar Pradesh Assembly Elections 2017 sparked off an immense & massive debate on the effectiveness and fairness of the EVMs in the country. An international conference on the Indian EVMs and its issue of tamperability of the said machines was held under the chairmanship of Subramanium Swami, former Union Cabinet Minister for Law, Commerce, and Justice at Chennai on 13 February 2010. The conclusion was that Election Commission of India was shirking its responsibility on the transparency in the working of the EVMs.

In this row of lost hope of Voters on the EVM, the State of Madhya Pradesh experienced  in a demonstration of EVM in the presence of election commission authorities, media personnel and local political leaders as an Electronic Voting Machine always voted to a particular political party each and every time ,i.e. BJP in spite of voting to any other political party.

Is not it Shocking?

In fact, every single preacher of democracy absolutely terms it as a bad day to Indian Democracy. With this revelation common Indian voters are in the mindset of distress and many even claim including political parties like Congress, BSP, and AAP that BJP won the huge victory in the last UP Assembly Election by tempering the EVM for which especially the AAP Supremo Kejariwal had opposed and alleged immediately after the result of UP’S Assembly election.

Technically many international scientific research has revealed the sour truth that EVM can be tempered and may be given the wrong result despite any required precaution and protection.

In fact most of the democratic countries across the universe now a day have already banned this EVM and sustain their Ultimate faith on Secret Ballot papers. Therefore why not the Govt. Of India is looking into this matter with a serious note of changing the voting method by switching off the EVM and switching on the system of Secret Ballot Paper.

Let the Indian people be definite that voting by them are absolute and their most valuable votes going to exactly the same political party’s pocket to whom they are voting.

It is also a matter of great regret that if it is possible in a demonstration then it can be also possible in the reality and that reality now bites every Indian citizen who is empowered to vote under the law of Universal Adult Franchise.

The long journey of EVM from it’s very first day in 1982 which were first used in the by-election to NORTH PARAVUR Assembly Constituency in KERLA till today is now under the scanner for the very 1st time on its implementation and voters of India are truly puzzle on this issue as political parties by their differentiated claims even put them into more puzzles.

As the EVMs were commissioned in 1989 by the Election Commission of India in collaboration with Electronic Corporation of India Ltd., it is the 1st and foremost duty of both the Election Commission and the Govt. Of India should cancel the agreement of ECI Ltd. And should also appoint the new credible and authenticated one to bring back the utmost faith of Indian voters on the Independent Election Commission of India.
