New Delhi: Rubbishing the claims of Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s on Evm Tampering, the Election Commission on Thursday dubbed electronic voting machines as ‘fully tamper-proof, as ever’.
EC, in a statement, said, “Baseless, speculative and wild allegations are being made which deserve to be rejected.”
Refuting BSP’s claim, EC said it did not have any specific allegation.
What else the statement said?
- Such concerns about alleged tamper ability of ECI-EVM have been raised earlier also since their introduction including before high court and the Supreme Court.
- These allegations have been dismissed. ECI unequivocally reiterates that given effective technical and administrative safeguards, EVMs are not tamperable and integrity of electoral process is preserved.
- What has been demonstrated or claimed to have been demonstrated is on a privately assembled look-alike of ECI-EVMs and not the actual ECI-EVMs.
Earlier, Kejriwal had said that the credibility of EC is in danger.
