Rajeev Shukla has again raised the topic of tampering with EVMs in the parliament. After BJP won the elections recently in many states including Uttar Pradesh. The opposition parties have been alleging that BJP has rigged the elections.
Rajeev Shukla said that he was not going to prove again that the EVMs were tampered by BJP in the elections. “People like Mayawati, Kejriwal and others have raised their doubts over this. The Election Commission (EC) has the responsibility to answer and clear these doubts. NO onw should have doubt over the electoral process” Rajeev Shukla said.
Shukla also suggested that voting should take place via ballot system, adding that when a country like America can use the ballot box to vote then why can’t India use it. He said that allegations of EVM rigging has spoilt the taste of victory. He suggested that opinion polls should be banned few months ahead of elections. Shukla’s words can be taken sarcastically taunting BJP to re conduct the elections or vice versa.
