Once again, the political heat is going on over the Electronic Voting Machine (EVM). The opposition parties have created an uproar against the government and the BJP. Questions are being asked whether EVMs can be hacked. In fact, after the Lok Sabha election results, this time the opposition that was questioning the EVMs sat silent, but a newspaper report gave another opportunity to the silent opposition to corner the government. Indeed, the political storm over EVMs has started from Mumbai. Mangesh Pandilkar, a relative of Shiv Sena Shinde faction MP Ravindra Vaikar, has been accused of taking a mobile phone to a polling center in Mumbai on June 4 and unlocking EVMs, but Elections has dismissed allegations of EVM hacking in Mumbai. Commission has been given. Mumbai Returning Officer Vandana Suryavanshi said that this cannot happen.

At the same time, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi tweeted, ‘EVM in India is a “black box” and no one is allowed to check it. There are serious concerns about transparency in our electoral process. When institutions lack accountability, democracy becomes sham and prone to fraud.

BJP hits back at opposition allegations

Samajwadi Party leader Akhilesh Yadav has also entered the political fray after Rahul Gandhi questioned the EVMs. He raised the question and said that the election should be conducted by ballot paper. Technology is meant to solve problems, if it causes problems then its use should be stopped. After Rahul and Akhilesh’s statements, BJP’s Amit Malviya and Rajeev Chandrasekhar took the front and responded to Elon Musk and opposition leaders.

Amit Malviya said that Elon Musk or anyone who thinks that EVMs can be hacked can go to the Election Commission of India and talk about it. Also, Rajeev Chandrasekhar said that EVMs are safe and there is no problem. After the election results, it seemed that the opposition now has faith in EVMs, but the opposition is again raising questions.

Here X owner Elon Musk also commented that EVMs should be completely abolished. It is very likely to be hacked by humans or AI. At the same time, Rajya Sabha MP and senior lawyer Kapil Sibal has said that the Maharashtra issue is not about EVMs. This is the case with electronic ballot paper, which can be controlled.

CM Shinde responded to the opposition’s allegations

Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde has responded to the allegations of the opposition. He has said that where Maha Vikas Aghadi has won, the EVM machines are correct. What kind of behavior is it to raise questions on the EVM machine when you have lost? Rahul Gandhi won from two seats, is there EVM machine right? He should be told that the EVM machines were faulty everywhere. I am contesting re-election after resigning.
