New Delhi: As the counting of votes for the Delhi Assembly polls began, Congress leader Digvijaya Singh on Tuesday raised doubts on EVMs, alleging that no machine having a chip is tamper-proof.
He called upon the Election Commission and the Supreme Court to take a fresh look at the use of EVMs in the country.
“No machine (which) has a chip is tamper proof. Also please do for a moment think, why no developed country uses EVM,” Singh said in a tweet.
“Would CEC and Hon Supreme Court please have a fresh look on EVM voting in India? We are the largest democracy in the world, we can’t allow some unscrupulous people to hack results and steal the mandate of 1.3 billion people.
“If they match the votes in the counting unit. Declare the result. If they don’t match then count the ballots of all polling booths in the assembly. It would convince every one and save time also as this has been the consistent argument of CEC in favour of EVM,” the Congress leader said.
Polling for the 70-member Delhi Assembly polls was held on Saturday.
The Election Commission on Sunday announced that the final voter turnout was 62.59 per cent, five per cent less than 2015.

If this politician do not want to believe a chip based machine because it may affect his livelihood then why the hell you are pushing the peasants to believe the machines and put in his hard earned money?
Digvijay Singh, comedian in chief of the congress party needs to get his chip in his head examined.
Doubting or blaming EVM or alleging tampering is the exclusive privilege of losers in an election. Two days back, AAP raised ruckus about delayed disclosure of voting data and also demanded higher security for EVMs. Now, that AAP is back to power, will AAP doubt EVMs? Here comes Digvijay Singh, from the loser party, an electronic expert by his own reckoning, who thinks that any equipment with Chip can be hacked. Heavens! Save us from these scoundrels.
