Currently, the entire nation is debating over the ‘authenticity’ of electronic voting machines. The controversy started after Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati alleged that the EVMs were tampered to give a favorable result to the Bharatiya Janata Party in the recently concluded Uttar Pradesh assembly elections.
Many say that Kejriwal and Mayawati are crying foul over EVMs as they faced a humiliating defeat in the elections. BJP leaders have suggested that both Kejriwal and Mayawati should accept the verdict gracefully.
However, when he talked about how even developed countries like the United States of America uses ballot paper for elections and how a country of illiterate like India uses EVMs. But the truth is ballot papers are used in the USA as they figured out that EVMs could be easily manipulated and hacked to gain extra votes illegally. That is the reason they use ballot paper as they want the votes to be legitimate.
