‘I salute the people of Delhi’

P. Chidambaram, @PChidambaram_IN – Former Finance Minister:
  • AAP won, bluff and bluster lost.
  • The people of Delhi, who are from all parts of India, have defeated the polarising, divisive and dangerous agenda of the BJP.
  • I salute the people of Delhi who have set an example to other states that will hold their elections in 2021 and 2022
  • Remember, when Delhi voted, millions of Malayalees, Tamils, Telugus, Bengalis, Gujaratis and people who came from other states of India voted.
  • If the voters represent the views of the states they came from, the Delhi vote is a booster for the confidence of the Opposition that the BJP can be defeated in every state.
  • The Delhi vote is close to an All India vote than to a state-specific vote. Because Delhi is a mini India.

‘My request to CEC is simple’

@digvijaya_28 – Digvijay Singh :

  • My request to CEC is simple. Instead of dropping the printed ballot paper in the box after 7 seconds visual, hand it over to the Voter and let him drop it in a separate Ballot Box.
  • Now as you have decided to count printed ballot papers in 5 randomly selected EVMs in every Assembly Segment and check with the votes in the counting unit. It was done in 2019 LS Polls and found to match completely. So far so good. But still questions are being raised.
  • To silence all such People you please agree to hand over the printed Ballot Paper to the Voter and let him put it in a separate sealed Ballot Box. Now count the Ballots in the randomly selected 5 Ballot Boxes of each Assembly Segment.
  • If they match the Votes in the Counting Unit. Declare the result. If they don’t match then count the Ballots of all Polling Booths in the Assembly. It would convince every one and save time also as this has been the consistent arguement of CEC in favour of EVM.
  • Would CEC and Hon Supreme Court please have a fresh look on EVM voting in India? We are the largest Democracy in the World, we can’t allow some Unscrupulous People to Hack Results and steal the Mandate of 1.3 Billion People.
  • No Machine which has a Chip is Tamper Proof. Also please do for a moment think, why no Developed Country uses EVM?
