As it is largely believed that PM Narendra Modi’s party BJP wins election in India by tampering with the electronic voting machines (EVMs), it has once again demanded EVMs instead of holding election on ballot papers.
The Chhattisgarh municipal elections – which are expected to take place in October – were planned on safer ballot papers. But BJP has rejected the ballot paper option and has categorically demanded EVMs.
According to a report in the leading newspaper Hindustan Times, a delegation of BJP has submitted a memorandum to the state election commissioner on Wednesday (September 11) for the use of EVMs. The state election authorities have decided to look into the BJP demands of using EVMs.
In July, a Pune-based political activist Maruti Bhapkar had issued legal notices to the Arizona-based Microchip Technology Inc. and Renesas Electronics headquartered in Tokyo on the alleged EVM manipulation in the recent Lok Sabha election in India.

How EVMs Are Manipulated to Win Elections
It is said that the chip used in the EVMs was not of OTP (One Time Programmable) category. That means, it can be programmed in each EVM to change the vote count in favor of a particular candidate.
It was said that Modi’s party BJP committed large-scale EVM tampering to win the 2019 Lok Sabha election. The field reports suggest that without EVM manipulations, BJP would not have won even 100 Lok Sabha seats. But with EVM fraud, it is alleged, Modi’s party managed to win 303 of the 543 Lok Sabha seats.
