  • Election Commission to Hold Live Demo of EVMs VVPATs Saturday

The Election Commission (EC) has made a decision to hold a live demo of Voter-verifiable paper audit trail (VVPAT) and EVMs and explain how they function.

Earlier this week, the poll panel had said it would offer an "opportunity" to the political parties to prove that EVMs used in the recently held assembly polls were tampered with or can be tampered even with laid down safeguards.

In 2009, the Commission had held a similar challenge and it claims no one was able to tamper with its machines. The EC has however, at all times, maintained that the EVMs used in all elections can not be tampered with or manipulated. Later, several other parties had joined the chorus and urged the EC to revert to paper ballots.

The Union Cabinet had given its nod to sanctioned funds of almost Rs. 3,200 crore to procure more than 16 lakh VVPATs as sought by the Election Commission.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has been leading the charge in claiming that the EVMs used in the elections were rigged by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

The BSP and the AAP had alleged that the machines used in the recent assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Manipur, Goa and Punjab were tampered with to favour the BJP. At the event, those having raised questions on Electoral Voting Machine security would be invited to demonstrate how Electoral Voting Machines can be tampered with.

The officials of the EC denied all these allegations and said that each and every EVM goes through several checks and thus each of them is tamper-proof.
