NEW DELHI / AGARTALA, June 12 (TIWN): Election Commission of India once again was trolled after it claimed, ‘Successful conduction of Lok Sabha Election 2019’. Netizens raised question why ballot papers are not re-brought in India in ECI’s facebook page. ECI in reply pointed these issues but again was trolled. In reply netizens asked whether EC found out its missing EVMs or not. The netizens also pointed out “Developed contries ban EVM because of no safety for EVM and manipulated”, “You may satisfy yourself on the election. But the entire nation blame you as a corrupted institution!” said another. The comment boxes were billed by #BanEVMBringBallotPapers.

All debates took place today in a post where ECI shared pictures of a 2-Day National conference of SVEEP Nodal Officers was successfully concluded at Teri Retreat, Gurugram yesterday. ECI today said, ECI's EVM stands as the most credible, non-tamperable and transparent machine. It gave certain points as : a. EVM is standalone machine and cannot be connected to any device or network. Hence, there is no chance of hacking by remote devices. b. Its tamper detection feature makes an EVM inoperative the moment anyone tries to open it. c. EVM linked with VVPAT ensures the voters that their votes are cast as intended. d. It has also ended the days of booth-capturing, delays and errors in ballot papers counting. e. The EVMs are manufactured by two Public Sector Undertaking viz., BEL and ECIL who also manufacture equipments for national security. f. EVM goes through number of administrative checks like First Level Checking, Mock Polls before it is used in an election. To ensure that no body knows which EVM will be assigned to which constituency EVM goes through a randomisation process. The whole process is conducted infront of the political representatives. g. All polled EVMs and VVPATs are brought under security cover to the designated strongrooms, which are sealed in the presence of the candidates and ECI's Observers. These strongrooms are kept under 24*7 CCTV surveillance. The EVM missing issue came in news which said 20 lakhs EVMs were going missing, however, Election Commission denied the news.
