Many people believe that Modi’s BJP cannot win any election in India if the elections are held on paper ballots instead of EVMs which are tampered with secretly to change the election results in favor of BJP.

The Supreme Court of India agreed today to hear a review petition seeking further increase in random matching of VVPAT slips with electronic voting machines (EVMs) in the ongoing Lok Sabha election. The petition filed by 21 opposition leaders demands 50% VVPAT verification.

There are increasing number of reports that the EVMs are not working properly in the Lok Sabha election. Reports also suggest that the faulty EVMs are again voting for Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s BJP.

Major opposition political parties in India have been repeatedly complaining about the vulnerability of EVMs. It is also being observed that when EVMs malfunction, they vote only in favor of PM Modi’s BJP which runs with Lotus election symbol.

But Modi and BJP have been dismissing the opposition complaints. Modi said in an election rally that the opposition parties have started blaming EVMs because they are anticipating defeat in the election.

Last month, the apex court had directed the Election Commission to increase random matching of VVPAT slips with EVMs from one to five polling booths per assembly segment.

However, opposition parties are not satisfied and they want the court to issue further directions to increase VVPAT verification to 50%. The plea was mentioned for urgent hearing before a bench comprising Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justice Deepak Gupta.

Congress leader and senior advocate Abhishek Manu Singhvi, appearing for the petitioners, asked the bench that the review plea be listed for hearing next week. Accepting Singhvi’s submission, the bench has agreed to hear the matter next week (the week starting May 6).
