Many influential leaders stated that BJP tampered the EVMs to win the elections in Uttar Pradesh. The results were shocking and it is obvious that BJP tampered the EVMs.
In 2012, Subramanian Swamy himself said that EVMs could have tampered. In a video from his YouTube channel, he starts by explaining that corruption in India is because of black money and then suddenly jumps to the topic of EVMs. He said that EVMs are controlled by the microcontrollers and these microcontrollers are made by a company in Japan.
Subramanian Swamy said that he called the Japanese company and asked about why the Japanese use these machines for voting instead of the ballot paper, he said they answered ‘we are not fools to use the EVMs’. He also said that Germany also stopped using the EVMs and started to use ballot paper. “USA, Europe, Japan use ballot paper for voting because it is foolproof” he added.
He suggests the use of a receipt for the accurate measurement of the votes. The BJP is now mum about the tampering the EVMs after winning the elections in Uttar Pradesh.
