The Congress party has shocked the ruling BJP in Uttarakhand. In the municipal elections, Congress party has posted a huge victory by winning 35 municipalities out of the 42 while the BJP is just confined to single digit.
These results are quite stunning but the biggest thing here to be noticed is, the process of elections. Instead of EVMs, the elections were held through ballot vote. BJP leaders exuded confidence that they would certainly win majority of the municipalities. To their dismay, the results turned towards Congress.
This brings us to the starting point of discussion on EVMs yet again. During the general elections 2019, there was a wide debate about EVMs. The Chief Election Commission of India too reacted on it and clarified that there is no wrong with EVM and none can manipulate it.
