EVM, Elon Musk and Akhilesh Yadav.

After Elon Musk’s statement about hacking of Electronic Voting Machines (EVM), there is tension between ruling and opposition parties. After Elon Musk’s statement, a war of words is going on between Union Minister Chandrashekhar and Elon Musk. In this war of words, from Rahul Gandhi to the leaders of the opposition parties, they are constantly making comments. Now Samajwadi Party President Akhilesh Yadav has commented on Elon Musk’s statement. Akhilesh Yadav tweeted on social site X that technology is meant to solve any problem, if it causes problems then its use should be stopped.

He wrote that today when there are fears of tampering with EVMs in many elections around the world and well-known technology experts of the world are openly writing about the danger of tampering with EVMs, what is behind the insistence of using EVMs? Because, BJP should clarify this. He said that we reiterate our demand that all the upcoming elections be conducted through ballot paper.

Elon Musk’s statement created an uproar

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Sunday termed EVMs in India as “black boxes” and cited a news report that has created a stir over the results of the Mumbai North West Lok Sabha seat. Let us tell you that before the Lok Sabha, questions were being raised regarding irregularities in EVMs. Opposition parties raised questions about this. At that time, the Election Commission had said that anyone can check the EVMs.

Meanwhile, Sena UBT leader Aditya Thackeray said that surprisingly the Election Commission, which is fully compromised, has refused to share the CCTV footage of the counting centre.

Debate on EVMs started again in India

Meanwhile, Elon Musk raised questions on the security of EVMs. He wrote that we should abolish electronic voting machines. BJP leader and former Union Minister Rajeev Chandrasekhar claimed that EVMs are completely secure. However, Musk reiterated his concerns and said that anything can be hacked here.
