Political party which moved to SC against EVMs fined Rs 50k, petition also rejected

New Delhi: petition was filed in the Supreme Court questioning the credibility of EVM machines. The petition was filed by the Madhya Pradesh Jan Vikas Party. The apex court dismissed the petition and also imposed a fine of Rs 50,000 on the party. Justice Sanjay Kishan lashed out at the party which filed the petition and said that when the party failed to get recognition by voting, they filed a petition for recognition.

They said that whoever comes and takes publicity, the court is not that place. The Madhya Pradesh Jan Vikas Party had sought a direction from the Election Commission (ECI) to take effective measures to plug loopholes in EVMs in its petition. But the apex court dismissed the petition. The Supreme Court said that the election process has been done through EVMs by the Election Commission for decades. He also said that a party which has not been recognised by the voters itself is trying to get recognition through such petitions.

At the same time, the lawyer of Madhya Pradesh Jan Vikas Party said in the court that only the engineers of the company have access to EVMs. If there is a problem with EVMs, it is the engineers of the company who deal with it, not the engineers of the commission. This should not be allowed, as there is a possibility of tampering. We are not against the use of EVMs in elections. We just need some cheques and balances.
