Editorial With Sujit Nair | Why Insist On EVMs?

In this episode of ‘Editorial,’ Mr. Sujit Nair discusses the recent remarks made by the Supreme Court of India during the hearing of petitions seeking for 100% verification of Voter Verifiable Paper Audit Trail slips (VVPATs). During the hearing, the Supreme Court directed the Election Commission of India to investigate allegations that extra votes were recorded in favor of the BJP during a mock poll in Kerala. This direction came after Advocate Prashant Bhushan, representing the Association for Democratic Reforms, referred to a report by Manorama Online regarding complaints about EVMs registering additional votes for the BJP in the Kasargod constituency. The bench, led by Justices Sanjiv Khanna and Dipankar Datta, instructed Maninder Singh to look into the matter. The Supreme Court is currently hearing the EVM-VVPAT case, with today being the second day of proceedings. The Election Commission assured the court that the cited news report was inaccurate and committed to submitting a detailed report.
