Akhilesh Yadav explains how EVMs can be tampered without internet!
Lucknow: Giving the instance of chips used in petrol pumps to commit fraud, the former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Saturday said the electronic voting machines (EVMs) too can be tampered.
Taking to Twitter after the UP STF action against 7 petrol pumps in the state capital, Akhilesh said, "When a chip can be used to create a technical glitch in petrol dispensing machines without the use of internet, EVMs also can be tampered," adding, "Abuse of technology should be stopped."
It may be mentioned that Akhilesh Yadav had earlier said EVMs cannot be relied upon and demanded that all future elections are conducted through ballot papers.
Akhilesh had said, "When will EVMs develop a snag no one can tell ... When will the software fail ... machines cannot be relied upon. We do not have faith in EVMs."
