Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections 2017



Hackers made hay in May 2014 and Mar 2017!



Following the results in Uttar Pradesh, BSP chief Mayawati, was decimated in the elections just because she belongs to Scheduled Caste and gave the best governance of Uttar pradesh as Chief Minister and became eligible for the next Prime Minister which was in-tolerated by the RSS/BJP who are serving for just 1% chitpawan brahmins, which is nothing but atrocity on SC/STs sought a re-poll with paper ballots.

There
should be reelection in UP. These fakes cannot be allowed to hijack a
nation to its doom.

BJP
in UP was decimated to near zero how it suddenly rose to absolute
majority in one year for BSP to come to power it took 10-15 years - BJP
was literally reduced to ashes - it is impossible to come to power
without EVM rigging - If they are not allowing re elections means they are thugs.

Lost
the elections to EVMs. BJP has rigged the EVMs in a more
credible way.Mayawati stood no chance to the resourceful
and cunning chitpawan brahmanical intrigues.

EVMs
are tamperable and SC must take the right step
in this direction. Hope justice prevails !

The following Indian Express readers are traitors:

Anjali
Kaur,Chandu Shah,Mahound,Suresh MS,damodar biswal,AnjuGopi,AVS,Manohar
Sharma,kjingar,vaidehibapat,ramesh,M D Pai,vish, Shashi Shekhar

who must also be booked under Atrocities Act.


Now, Justice Karnan asks CJI, 6 judges to appear before him.

Kolkata, April 13

A defiant Calcutta High Court Judge Justice C S Karnan on Thursday asked
the Chief Justice of India and six judges of the Supreme Court, who
have issued contempt notice to him, to appear before him at his
“residential court” on April 28.
Justice Karnan claimed that the seven judges of the bench have insulted
him “wantonly and deliberately and with malafide intention” like what was done to Ms Mayawati by the RSS/BJP leaders.

He said the judges have been asked to defend themselves against the
charge of violating the SC/ST Prevention of Atrocities Act, levelled by
him. Justice Karnan has been insisting that he is being discriminated
against because he is a Scheduled Caste. Likewise Mohan Bagawath, Modi, vydianath and the other supporters of anti-SC/STs must defend themselves against the charge of violating the SC/ST Prevention of Atrocities Act leveled by me as I insist that Mayawati is being discriminated against because she is a Scheduled caste.

The three leaders Mohan Bagawath, Modi and Adyanath  as mentioned above will
appear before me at my Resident as mentioned above and give their views
regarding quantum of punishment for the violation of the Scheduled
Castes and Scheduled Tribes Atrocities Act.” And
accused under the Scheduled
Castes and Scheduled Tribes Atrocities Act, 1989.”

I suggest that they may hand over the entire budget amount of our country to Ms Mayawati to enable her to distribute the wealth equally among all societies until orders are passed by the CJI Collegium to dissolve the central and state governments selected by the fraud EVMs and go for fresh polls with paper ballots.

The RSS/BJP leaders and the following readers have raised a question as to how Ms Mayawati’s  mental health was.

People must wonder that never heard of a case like this in the world. RSS/BJP leaders acting like
a pack of wolves, the SC/ST against 1% intolerant, violent, militant, shooting, lynching, number 1 terrorists of the world the chitpawan brahmin RSS will be a  pretty grim situation indeed.
This case having been spiced by Caste System which is practiced only in
India, one way or other, a precedent will be set.

The RSS/BJP/ and the above readers SohanPal
SinghPundir or the 7 Judges are not Doctors of mental health  for asking
Justice Karnan  or Ms Mayawati how their mental health was? So we think we know the
answer now as to who suffers from mental health. They are suffering from
hatred, anger, delusion and jealousy on SC/STs which is an inborn
defilement of the mind requiring mental treatment and with a heavy fine
of their entire earnings under atrocities act as a deterrent punishment
by issuing a non bailable warrant.

It has been conclusively proved to the satisfaction of the Hon’ble Supreme Court that Indian EVMs ARE tamperable.The process of elections is the most sacrosanct duty in a Republic which ECI should carry out with utmost diligence. Caesar’s wife should be above suspicion. Free and fair polls should not only be ensured but APPEAR to be ensured to the satisfaction of the voters.

India first tested EVMs in a by-election in 1982, but the machines were first deployed on a large scale of over 1 million in a general
election in 2004.


In 2010, security researcher Hari Prasad and his associates released a video that they said demonstrated vulnerabilities in the EVMs, after hacking an EVM that had already been used in an election. Prasad and his team replaced the display board of the machine with a look-alike component that could be instructed through a Bluetooth connection on a mobile phone to steal a percentage of the votes in favor of a chosen candidate.



The researchers also used a pocket-size device that could be attached to the memory of the EVM to change the votes stored in the machine
during the period between the election and the public counting session.



The Supreme Court has in its ruling this week asked the government to provide the financial assistance required by the Election
Commission to roll out the EVMs. It has not set out a schedule for the full deployment of EVMs with the paper trail.

American scientists ‘hack’ into Indian voting machines


LONDON:



India’s voting machines - considered to be among the world’s most tamperproof - can be hacked, American scientists claim.


Researchers at the University of Michigan connected a home-made device to a voting machine and successfully changed results by sending
text messages from a mobile.


“We made an imitation display board that looks almost exactly like the real display in the machines. But underneath some of the
components of the board, we hide a microprocessor and a Bluetooth radio,” the BBC quoted Prof J Alex Halderman, who led the project, as saying.



He added: “Our lookalike display board intercepts the vote totals that the machine is trying to display and replaces them with dishonest totals - basically whatever the bad guy wants to show up at the end of the election.”


Moreover, they added a small microprocessor, which they say can change the votes stored in the machine between the election and the
vote-counting session.


No one’s right mind would yet allow the use of absolutely antiquated, completely out-dated, easily hack-able and highly tamper-able “high school technology” based, obsolete EVMs (electronic voting machines) in national elections, but it was used now — in 2014


More than 80 democracies in the world have simply done away with them, dumping them in the trash, or simply declared the usage of this
simplistic voting system susceptible to fraud, and hence declaring the same as illegal — as the Supreme Courts of Germany and Holland indeed have done. Even Japan, from where EVMs originated, has long abandoned its rogue babies, and is using paper ballot system since then. All the advanced democracies in the West, except the most dull-headed ones, have reverted to a voter verifiable system or the ballot paper. In Canada, even at the ,most basic school level, ballot paper voting is in use.


Last year, the Supreme Court of India, having been convinced of an undeniable, edible possibility of EVMs getting tampered with and that
easily hacked — even from afar — had ordered the imbecilic Election Commission and the indolent Government of India to provide about 1600 crore (1600, 0000000) rupees — convert this into your respective currency! — for manufacturing these VVPAT (Voter Verifiable Paper Audit Trail) voting machines; which show a verifiable paper receipt to the voter.


This is the Fundamental Right of a citizen of India, as per the laws laid down by the Constitution. However, recent newspaper reports
tell us that only 20, 000 such voting machines have been provided for the entire country in this, 2014 election! India has 29 states
now — with Telagana being the latest. In most of them, depending upon their size etc., either about 400 VVPAT machines are being deployed, or some such similar ridiculous number — more or less — hasbeen made available in the length and breadth of the country. It’s an asinine, bland, cruel, demeaning joke we 1.25 billion voters have been “blessed” with by the powers that be.


All “patriotic” hackers of our motherland made hay in May 2014 and Mar 2017!


As to how EVMs can be hacked into, tampered with, and results favorably manipulated via software interference and other means — from
near and from far, far away — this can easily be found by anybody by just going to Google etc. and filling “EVM HACKING, TAMPERING” or something to this effect in the Search. And lo, behold! a plethora of information will just overwhelm your overly chilled-out, lesser employed, un-billed brains.


However, the only solace for us naive fools is that quite a few unscrupulous politicians such as Murderer of democratic institutions
(Modi) and every other most “honorable” political party worthy of its “salt” such as Congress and the BJP, would surely be playing this
comic-tragic game of hacking into and hijacking the votes of a billion people! Thus, one who outsmarts the other such fine folks, armed with their hacking forks in this merry-go-around, will win.


The rest — this or that “tsunami” or wave in favor of one or the other, poll forecasts and the “newbie”, the over enthused, seeming game
changers in the making — well, they may well fall flat on their dumb faces, if not on their smart asses.

That the Supreme Court of India too, while passing the order of putting new VVPAT voting machines in use in a “phased manner”, has
unwittingly shirked its duty. In fact, it committed a grave error of judgment. Perhaps dealt a fatal blow to Indian democracy. It should have ordered, as a caution, that till the time this newer set of about 1300ooo voting machines is manufactured in full and so deployed
throughout India, ballot paper system would be brought in. No such precautionary measure was decreed by the apex court.


Well, crib all you want. But don’t cry, my dear countrymen. After all, the same model of EVMs is yet very much in use in South Africa,
Bangla Desh, Bhutan, Nepal, Nigeria, Venezuela etc. These poor folks of the said “non-techy”countries — millions of them — too cannot figure out as to what the hell had, yet is happening, in their dear short-circuited “developed” democracies. Nor will you.


Don’t worry, be happy! You are not alone “out there”.


Oh, by the way, the somewhat notorious lawyer who had brought in this case — of the present lot of EVMs being tamper-able and hack-able — and, who, had successfully fought it so, forcing the Supreme Court to order the installation of a fail-safe voting mechanism (of
Voter Verifiable Paper Audit machines replacing the susceptible earlier Electronic Voting Machines) to ensure a free and fair electoral process in India — well, this oh-so-very honorable fellow too has fallen silent, like a demure maiden. This most vociferous gentleman had openly declared on social websites, especially Twitter, that in case VVPAT machines do not get installed in time for 2014 elections, then, there would be a “constitutional crisis” — putting it out there like an Indian “pehalwan”, a la WWW wrestler, that he would challenge the same in the apex court. He had most emphatically underlined he would ensure that either the new fail-safe voting machines or the old time-tested paper ballot system will be put in use during this general election in India.

However, recently, when asked specifically on Twitter about this matter — as to what this lovely man is doing or is going to do about
this impending doomsday electoral scenario — there was a deafening silence from his side. May be owing to the fact that since the Supreme
Court judgement late last year, this self-righteous rightist has joined the ultra-rightist political bandwagon.


The latter has been projected by pollsters to overwhelmingly sweep these elections — as a direct result of the doings of the monstrous public relations firm hired from the land of the let-it-be, oops! free. This US firm is the same that was used fruitfully by President Bush and Hillary Clinton for their respective political campaigns. It has — let there be no doubt about it — successfully projected its client as the potential winner and the next numero uno in Indian politics.


What the majority of the Indians have missed in fine print is that the outgoing Chief Minister of the state of Rajasthan, in the last
year elections, had officially filed a complaint with the election commission that the EVMs used in his state were pre-programmed and
tampered with — and that the same had come from the state of which this presently hyped-up future Prime Minister of India, is the current Chief Minister. Now, the lawyer who had gone to the dogs to awaken India and the rest of the world about the mischief and malfeasance possible with the old model of EVMs — and had in fact written a book on this subject — is in a wink-wink deep-throat “smadhi”.


A silence that speaks truths we dumb billion idiots on this part of slippery earth cannot fathom. Perhaps it’s a precursor of the things to
come.


Let us hope the jolly good hackers of this-that party screw-up each other’s devilish, outright evil plans. In a dog eat dog political
crap pit we hapless billion creatures have to walk through every election, maybe this time the ape sitting by the side — the wide-eyed
hopeful citizen of India — at least gets a tiny part of the apple pie this messy hacking cat fight will leave behind, on the side lanes.



Perhaps these little crumbs will be enough for us to stay afloat. though not gloat.


In a nutshell, simply put, whosoever “out-hacks” the other, will win.


Then again, we are an ancient civilization of more than 33,0000000 gods and goddesses — some civilized, others not so civil. Let’s
hope one of these fancied deities has a soft corner for us dumbos.Otherwise, we are going to get screwed. A billion times over.


Therefore, I made doubly sure I did not vote. I sat on my ass on voting day — not that I don’t do so everyday. This voting day, I
absolutely did. Not only figuratively and metaphorically, but literally. I may have many buts in life, but at least today I have a little sore,
yet not so sorry a butt.


We are a fool’s paradise.


Long live the banana republic of India!

Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections 2017



Hackers made hay in May 2014 and Mar 2017!

has caused great grievance and pain to me a Scheduled Caste and


Mayawati


Mayawati Prabhu Das commonly fondly known as Mayawati is an Indian politician heading the Bahujan Samaj Party. Being the member of the party since itsinception in 1984, she later became the party president in 2001. She has served as the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh four times (briefly in 1995, 1997, 2002-2003 and 2007-2012). Mayawati has been the youngest woman Chief Minister and the first ever female Scheduled Caste member to become Chief Minister of any state. After losing in the 2012 legislative assembly elections to Samajwadi Party, she resigned from her post as a party leader on March 2012, and later that month she was elected to a seat in Rajya Sabha through acclamation. As the leader of the party, she has also been lauded for mobilizing funds for her party.Born on 15th January 1956 in Delhis Shrimati Sucheta Kriplani hospital, Mayawati has 6 brothers. Her father Prabhu Das was a postal employee at Badalpur in
Gautam Buddha Nagar in 1975, her mothers name is Ram Rati. In her family, the sons were sent to private schools whereas daughters went to low-performing government schools. Mayawati completed her B.A. in 1975 from Kalindi Womens College under the Delhi University. After the completion of B.A., she earned a B.Ed. from VMLG College, Ghaziabad in 1976. Thereafter in 1983, she did her LLB from Delhi University. After completing her B.Ed. course in 1976, she started teaching students in Inderpuri JJ Colony, Delhi and was also preparing for the IAS exams.


Sometime in 1977, a well kown Scheduled Caste politician Kanshi Ram visited her family home and was highly impressed by Mayawati’s speaking style and motivated her to join politics. According to biographer Ajay Bose, Kanshi Ram told her that I can make you such a big leader one day that not one but a whole row of IAS officers will line up for your orders. In 1984, Kanshi Ram founded the Bahujan Samaj Party and the party focused as a platform to bring social change and to improve the welfare of the weakest of the Indian society consisting of the Bahujans or SC/STs, Other Backward castes and religious minorities. Kanshi Ram included Mayawati as the member of the party marking her first step in Indian politics. She was first elected as a Member of Parliament in 1989 representing Bijnor, Uttar Pradesh in the 9th Lok Sabha elections. In 1994, she became a member of Rajya Sabha for the first time. Kanshi Ram remained the president of BSP until 2001 however, due to his deteriorating health in the 1990s, the party’s leadership shifted in the hands of Mayawati, a former school teacher. In 1993, Mayawati made a coalition with Samajwadi Party in the assembly elections and helped Mulayam Singh Yadav in becoming the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh.


However on 2nd June 1995, Mayawati withdrew her support from the government after accusing Mulayam Singh Yadav for sending goons at her place, keeping her party legislators hostage at the Lucknow guest house as well as trying to break her party. She also accused Mulayam Singh Yadav that he shouted castes abuse at her. After withdrawing support from Samajwadi Party Mayawati sought her support to Bharatiya Janata Party and became the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh on 3rd June 1995.


She created history by becoming the first ever Scheduled Caste women in India to serve as the Chief Minister in Uttar Pradesh. On October 1995, the BJP withdrew support to her and fresh elections were called after Presidents rule. She won to the Lok Sabha elections in 1996 from two different constituencies and chose to serve Harora. After that from 1996 to 1998, she also served as MLA in the U.P state Assembly. On 21st March 1997, she again became the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh marking her second term as the Chief Minister and retained the post till 20th September 1997. In the 12th Lok Sabha elections of 1998, she was elected as member representing Akbarpur constituency. In 1999, she became a member of the 13th Lok Sabha. Despite Mayawati leading the party, Kanshi Ram remained
the party’s president until 2001. Being a diabetic and a host of other serious ailments, he wasn’t able to lead an active political life. On
December 15, 2001, Kanshi Ram in a rally in Lucknow declared Mayawati the then Vice-President of the party as his political successor.

On February she was re elected for the Uttar Pradesh legislative assembly.

On March 2002, she resigned from the Akbarpur Lok Sabha seat and on 3rd May 2003, she became the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh for the third time and remained on this post till 26th August 2002. Following the ill health of Kanshi Ram, she became the National President of BSP on 18th September 2003. In May 2004, she was re elected from Akbarpur for the 14th Lok Sabha. In July 2004, she resigned from Lok Sabha and became the member of Rajya Sabha for the second time. On 27th August, she was elected as the National President of BSP for the second time. Kanshi Ram died on October 2006 due to a severe heart attack. Mayawati performed
the last rites of Kanshi Ram in Buddhist tradition which is traditionally performed by the male heirs of the family in Hindu tradition. In the 2007 Uttar Pradesh elections, BSP won the majority and she became the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh for the fourth time and retained the post of the Chief Minister till March 2012. In the 2007 elections, Mayawati had the slogan to convert Uttar Pradesh to Uttam Pradesh. The governance of the Mayawati government in Uttar Pradesh was very well praised and the government began a major crackdown on the irregularities made by the police department during the Mulayam Singh government. In this process, over 18,000 policemen lost their jobs for irregularities in their hiring and 25 IPS officers were suspended for their involvement in corruption.

She also introduced transparency into the recruiting process, including posting the results of selection exams online. In 2008, Mayawati
launched Manyawar Shri Kanshiram Ji Shahri Garib Awas Yojna a scheme to build low cost houses for urban poor and completed two rounds of construction till 2012 when her tenure of Chief Minister ended. The BSP government is also praised for maintenance of law and order in Uttar Pradesh and for their significant contributions in the field of infrastructure and medical facilities in the rural and urban areas Mayawati is widely regarded as a self made woman and she began her political career with hardwork and her own struggle.

Mayawati is unmarried and has dedicated her life to serve the weaker sections of the society. Mayawati is criticized for wasting the tax payers money by building several statues of icons of Buddhism, Hinduism and SC/STs including herself during her tenure as the Chief Minister. The CBI in 2002 raided her house suspecting financial irregularities related to Taj Heritage Corridor, however in June 2007, the then Governor T.V. Rajeshwar declared that there is no evidence of her involvement. . On 9th August 2009, Mayawati declared that she has chosen her successor from the Scheduled Caste community who is 18-20 years junior to her and she has pinned down the name in a sealed packet in a safe custody. The name of the successor will be declared after her death in particular and the 99%
Sarvajan Samaj i.e., all societies belonging to SC/STs/OBCs/Minorities
and the poor Upper castes in general.

In 2007 Ms Mayawati as Chief ninister of Uttar
pradesh gave th best governance by way of distributing the wealth of
state among all societies as enshrined in our Constitution.


Basically, seeking to approach the problems of society by reforming the individuals constituting that society and by suggesting some general principles through which the society can be guided towards greater humanism, improved welfare of its members, and more equitable sharing of resources.

While the 1%
intolerant, violent, militant, shooting, lynching, lunatic, mentally
retarded, cannibal chitpawan brahmins of RSS headed by Mohan Bagawath
with an inherent problem of trying to intermingle religion with politics. The basis of religion is morality, purity and faith, while that for politics is power. In the course of history, religion has often been used to give legitimacy to those in power and their exercise of that power. Religion was used to justify wars and conquests, persecutions, atrocities, rebellions, destruction of works of
art and culture.

When religion is used to pander to political whims by tampering the fraud EVMs, it has to forego its high moral ideals and become debased by worldly political demands.


There is a limit to the extent to which a political system can safeguard the happiness and prosperity of its people. No political system, no matter how ideal it may appear to be, can bring about peace and happiness as long as the people
in the system are dominated by greed, hatred and delusion. In addition, no matter what
political system is adopted, there are certain universal factors which the members of that
society will have to experience: the effects of good and bad kamma, the lack of real
satisfaction or everlasting happiness in the world characterized by dukkha
(unsatisfactoriness), anicca (impermanence), and anatta (egolessness). To
the followers of the Awakenen One with Awareness, nowhere in Samsara is there real freedom, not even in the heavens or
the world of Brahama.

Although a good and just political system which guarantees
basic human rights and contains checks and balances to the use of power is an important
condition for a happy in society, people should not fritter away their time by endlessly
searching for the ultimate political system where men can be completely free, because
complete freedom cannot be found in any system but only in minds which are free. To be
free, people will have to look within their own minds and work towards freeing themselves
from the chains of ignorance and craving. Freedom in the truest sense is only possible
when a person uses Dhamma to develop his character through good speech and action and to
train his mind so as to expand his mental potential and achieve his ultimate aim of awakenment.

While recognizing the usefulness of separating religion
from politics and the limitations of political systems in bringing about peace and
happiness, there are several aspects of the Awakened One with Awarenes
s’s teaching which have close
correspondence to the political arrangements of the present day. Firstly, the
Awakened One with Awareness spoke
about the equality of all human beings long before Abraham Lincoln, and that classes and
castes are artificial barriers erected by society. The only classification of human
beings, according to the Awakened One with Awareness, is based on the quality of their moral conduct. Secondly,
the Awakened One with Awareness encouraged the spirit of social -co-operation and active participation in
society. This spirit is actively promoted in the political process of modern societies.
Thirdly, since no one was appointed as the Awakened One with Awareness’s successor, the members of the Order
were to be guided by the Dhamma and Vinaya, or in short, the Rule of Law. Until today very
member of the Order is to abide by the Rule of Law which governs and guides their
conduct which was strictly followed by Ms Mayawati as Chief Minister.


Fourthly, the Awakened One with Awareness  encouraged the spirit of
consultation and the democratic process. This is shown within the community of the Order
in which all members have the right to decide on matters of general concern. When a
serious question arose demanding attention, the issues were put before the Order and
discussed in a manner similar to the democratic parliamentary system used today. This
self-governing procedure may come as a surprise to many to learn that in the assemblies of
Awakened One with Awareness  in this country 2,500 years and more ago are to be found the rudiments of the
parliamentary practice of the present day. A special officer similar to ‘Mr. Speaker’ was
appointed to preserve the dignity of the Parliamentary Chief Whip, was also appointed to
see if the quorum was secured. Matters were put forward in the form of a motion which was
open to discussion. In some cases it was done once, in others three times, thus
anticipating the practice of Parliament in requiring that a bill be read a third time
before it becomes law. If the discussion showed a difference of opinion, it was to be
settled by the vote of the majority through balloting. The Murderer
of democratic institutions (Modi) has done away with such a system by
gobbling the Master Key by tampering the fraud EVMs to win elections.


The Awaken One with awareness approach to political power is the
moralization and the responsible use of public power. The
Awaken One with awareness preached non-violence and
peace as a universal message. He did not approve of violence or the destruction of life,
and declared that there is no such thing as a ‘just’ war. He taught: ‘The victor breeds
hatred, the defeated lives in misery. He who renounces both victory and defeat is happy
and peaceful.’ Not only did the
Awaken One with awareness teach non-violence and peace, He was perhaps the
first and only religious teacher who went to the battlefield personally to prevent the
outbreak of a war. He diffused tension between the Sakyas and the Koliyas who were about
to wage war over the waters of Rohini. He also dissuaded King Ajatasattu from attacking
the Kingdom of the Vajjis.

The Awaken One with awareness discussed the importance and the prerequisites
of a good government that was sincerely  by Ms Mayawati. He showed how the country could become corrupt, degenerate and
unhappy when the head of the government becomes corrupt and unjust. He spoke against
corruption and how a government should act based on humanitarian principles.


The Awaken One with awareness once said, ‘When the ruler of a country
is just and good, the ministers become just and good; when the ministers are just and
good, the higher officials become just and good; when the higher officials are just and
good, the rank and file become just and good; when the rank and file become just and good,
the people become just and good.’(Anguttara Nikaya)


In the Cakkavatti Sihananda Sutta, the Awaken One with awareness said
that immorality and crime, such as theft, falsehood, violence, hatred, cruelty, could
arise from poverty. Kings and governments may try to suppress crime through punishment,
but it is futile to eradicate crimes through force as done by Murderer of democratic institutions (Modi)


In the Kutadanta Sutta, the Awaken One with awareness suggested
economic development instead of force to reduce crime. The government should use the
country’s resources to improve the economic conditions of the country. It could embark on
agricultural and rural development, provide financial support to entrepreneurs and
business, provide adequate wages for workers to maintain a decent life with human dignity as followed by Ms Mayawati.


In the Jataka, the Awaken One with awareness had given to rules
for Good Government, known as ‘Dasa Raja Dharma’.
These ten rules can be
applied even today which was done by Ms mayawati government which wishes to rule the country peacefully. The
rules are as follows:

1) be liberal and avoid selfishness,
2) maintain a high moral character,
3) be prepared to sacrifice one
’s own pleasure for the well-being of the subjects,
4) be honest and maintain absolute integrity,
5) be kind and gentle,
6) lead a simple life for the subjects to emulate,
7) be free from hatred of any kind,
8) exercise non-violence,
9) practise patience, and
10) respect public opinion to promote peace and harmony.


Regarding the behavior of rulers, He further advised as followed by Ms Mayawati:


- A good ruler should act impartially and should not be
biased and discriminate between one particular group of subjects against another.

- A good ruler should not harbor any form of hatred
against any of his subjects.

- A good ruler should show no fear whatsoever in the
enforcement of the law, if it is justifiable.

- A good ruler must possess a clear understanding of the
law to be enforced. It should not be enforced just because the ruler has the authority to
enforce the law. It must be done in a reasonable manner and with common sense. — (Cakkavatti
Sihananda Sutta
)


In the Milinda Panha,it is stated: ‘If
a man like the Murderer of democratic institutions (Modi), who is
unfit, incompetent, immoral, improper, unable and unworthy of kingship,
has
enthroned himself a king or a ruler with great authority by
tampering, distorting and rigging the EVMs to win elections, he is
subject to be
tortured‚ to be subject to a variety of punishment by the people, because, being
unfit and unworthy, he has placed himself unrighteously in the seat
of sovereignty. Modi like others who violate and transgress moral codes
and basic rules of all social
laws of mankind, is equally subject to punishment; and moreover, to be censured is the
ruler who conducts himself as a robber of the public.’ In a Jataka story, it is mentioned
that a ruler who punishes innocent people and does not punish the culprit is not suitable
to rule a country.

Therefore the
Honourable Chief Justice of India along with a collageium of Chief
Justices belonging to SC/STs/OBCs/Minorities and juries such as Ms
Mayawati, Nazeerudin Shah, Satishchandra Mishra may be pleased to
dissolve the Central and State governments selected by these fraud EVMs
and go for fresh elections with paper ballots to save democracy.

Since Ms
Mayawati belonged to Scheduled Caste Community The RSS and BJP conspired
to defeat her with the tampering, distorting and rigging the EVMs.
Hence they must be punished for practicing untouchability with the
prevention of atrocities act. They must be asked to pay a fine of the
entire budget to Ms Mayawati to enable her to distribute the wealth of
the country among all societies.

An appeal for all democracy liking people:


Let us file as many e-filing as possible to press for Ballot papers instead of EVMs/VVPAT.





Let us appeal to the Computer Business Review and the American Institute for Behavioral Research and


Technology, an independent research organisation based in California to review and research on the following technology:

Napolean had once said that “I can face
two battalions but not two scribes”. Scribes are aware that the Supreme
Court had directed that all the EVMs must be replaced with TAMPER PROOF
machines. But the CEC had not





bothered tto replace all the EVMs and went for Lok Sabha elections.
Napolean’s suggested scribes have to do some investigative journalism
and expose the CEC to save this MURDER of DEMOCRACY and STOP

Civil
Appeal @ SLP (C) No. 13735 of 2012

2)

This
appeal is directed against the judgment and order

dated
17.01.2012 passed by the Division Bench of the High

Court of
Delhi at New Delhi in W.P.(C) No. 11879 of 2009

whereby
the High Court disposed of the petition by


disallowing
the prayer made by the appellant herein for


issuance
of a writ of


mandamus


directing
the Election


Commission
of India (ECI)-Respondent herein to incorporate


a system
of Paper Ballots until entire  “paper trail/paper receipt” in the Electronic


Voting
Machines (EVMs) as a convincing proof that the EVM


has
rightly registered the vote cast by a voter in favour of a


particular
candidate.




Being
aggrieved of the above, the present appeal has


been
filed by way of special leave.


Writ
Petition (Civil) No. 406 of 2012


4)


One
Jgatheesan Chandrasekharan, R Muniappa, Gopinath, Dr Ashok Siddharth, Rajendra Satyanarayan Gilda has filed this Writ


Petition,
under Article 32 of the Constitution of India, praying


for
issuance of a writ of


mandamus/


direction(s)
directing the


Union of
India
Narendra Modi, Mohan Bagawath, Amit Shah, Venkaiah naidu,


WITH

, the Chief Election Commissioner and the


Technical
Experts Committee-Respondent Nos. 1-3 herein


respectively
to effect the necessary modifications in the


EVMs so
as to allow the voters to verify their respective votes


and to
attach the printers to the EVMs with a facility to print


the
running record of the votes for the purpose of verification

 


by the
voters in the process of voting. He also prayed for a


Page 


3


direction
to frame guidelines and to effect necessary


amendments
in the Conduct of Election Rules, 1961.


5)


In view
of the pendency of the appeal filed by Dr.


Subramanian
Swamy, this Court issued notice in the writ


petition
and tagged with the said appeal.


6)


Heard Dr.
Subramanian Swamy, appellant-in-person in


the
appeal, Dr. R.R. Deshpande, learned counsel for the writ


petitioner,
Mr. Ashok Desai and Ms. Meenakshi Arora, learned


senior
counsel for the ECI.


Contentions:


7)


Dr.
Subramanian Swamy, the appellant herein


contended
before this Court that the present system of


EVMs, as
utilized in the last few general elections in India,


does not
meet all the requirements of the international


standards
and though the ECI maintains that the EVMs


cannot be
tampered with, but the fact is that EVMs, like all


electronic
equipments, are open to hacking.


8)


The
appellant has further highlighted that the instant


matter
arises out of the refusal of the ECI to incorporate a


certain
obvious safeguard in the EVMs called “paper

backup”,
“paper receipt” or “paper trail”, presently in use


and
mandated in some countries like USA, which would easily


and
cheaply meet the requirement of proof that the EVM has


rightly
registered the vote cast by a voter. The appellant has


further
highlighted that the “paper trail” system is to


supplement
the procedure of voting as in this procedure,


after
recording a vote in the EVM, a print out will come out


which
will appraise the voter that his vote has been rightly


registered
and the same will be deposited in a box which can


only be used
by the ECI in case of election dispute.


9)


It is the
categorical stand of the appellant that the


above
said system will bring more accuracy in the present


system
and if a particular election is challenged on the


ground
that some particular identified voter’s voter or the


votes of
a group of voters have been suppressed/have not


been
correctly assigned by the EVMs, the accepted current


procedure
is for a re-run of the same EVMs for a re-count,


however,
under the new procedure, a re-count will be of the


receipts
in the ballot box containing the printouts the EVMs

 

5


had
issued to the voter thereby ensuring more transparency


in the
process.


10)


The writ
petitioner has also raised similar contentions as


those of
Dr. Swamy. According to the petitioner, in the


present
system of voting through EVMs, there is no such


facility
by which a voter can verify and confirm his own


voting.
At present, a voter presses a button only but cannot


ascertain
the actual voting. He is not sure whether his vote


is
recorded or not, if recorded, whether it is recorded in


favour of
the person to whom it was intended or not.


Whether
it is valid or invalid and whether it is counted or not.


It is
submitted by the petitioner that unless and until answers


to these
questions are personally seen by the voter, it cannot


be said
that voting is made by him because “pressing a


button of
choice and getting flashed the red-light” is not


actual
voting in real sense unless the voter knows well that


what has happened
in consequence of pressing a button of


his
choice from the EVMs.

Mr. Ashok
Desai, learned senior counsel for the ECI


submitted
that the apprehension that EVMs could be


tampered
with is baseless. It was also informed to this Court


that the
ECI has been exploring the possibility of


incorporating
a viable Voter Verifiable Paper Audit Trail


(VVPAT)
system as a part of the presently used EVMs to


make the
election system more transparent. Further, it was


brought
to our notice that the ECI conducted field trials for


VVPAT
system earlier also but the same had not been


successful
and were discontinued. The ECI also filed a


counter
affidavit stating that the EVMs provided by the


Commission
are of such a high end technology that it cannot


be
hacked.


12)
Referring to Section 61A of the Representation of the


People
Act, 1951, it is submitted that the Statute itself


provides
for recording of votes by EVMs and the ECI has been


given the
discretion to prescribe recording of votes by such


EVMs as
it may deem fit. This discretion has to be exercised


in a
manner to preserve the sanctity of the election process


and
ensure that the election is conducted in a free and fair

manner. The ECI has exercised due diligence to ensure that
EVMs so used are “tamper proof” and it is also in the process
of exploring to incorporate VVPAT system which is
compatible with the present EVMs used by it. It is asserted
that there is no instance of tampering with EVMs so far by
anyone.
13)
It is further submitted that the EVMs used in India are
unique and unlike the ones used in the elections in USA and
other countries, which are personal computer based. EVMs
deployed by the ECI have been lauded not only in India but
also abroad. EVM’s Control Unit retains in the memory each
vote recorded elector-wise. The information stored in the
memory of the Control Unit can be retrieved by using a
device called the “decoder” which, when attached to the
Control Unit of EVM, can print out the statement of voting
data showing the order in which each voter has voted and to
whom he has voted.
14)
Insofar as the transparency of the election process as
well as the right of a voter to know whether his vote has
actually been recorded for the candidate for whom it was
7

Page
8
cast is concerned, it is submitted that as soon as a vote is
recorded by a voter by pressing the “candidate’s” button on
the Ballot Unit, a light glows against the name and symbol of
the candidate, which the voter can see for himself/ herself.
This is a visual (electronic) assurance to the voter that the
candidate for whom he has cast his vote has actually got that
vote. Thereafter, the light goes off to protect the secrecy of
voting.
15)
It is further submitted that the feasibility of VVPAT
system was sought to be explored to by various political
parties and they were explained the technical and
administrative safeguards. The ECI also constituted a
Technical Experts Committee to examine the viability of the
VVPAT system. On 27.05.2011, the Technical Experts
Committee, after discussion with political parties and civil
society members and also after seeing the demonstration of
the prototype VVPAT system developed by M/s. Bharat
Electronics Ltd. (BEL) and M/s. Electronics Corporation of
India Ltd. (ECIL), recommended that a field test of the
prototype VVPAT system should be carried out in a simulated
8

Page
9
election under different environmental conditions in
Jaisalmer, Thiruvananthapuram, Delhi, Leh and Cherapunji.
The ECI also held further meetings with the manufacturers of
EVMs on various dates to fine tune the system and expedite
the follow up action required. Several meetings were also
held with the Expert Committee on VVPAT system.
16)
In wider fulfillment of the objectives of the field trial, the
ECI has requested the National and State parties to extend
necessary cooperation by getting involved in the trial process
actively and also witness the trial in order to have a first
hand experience of the system. The ECI has also requested
the individuals including the appellant – Dr. Subramanian
Swamy and the groups, who have been engaged with the ECI
on the issue of EVM-VVPAT, to witness the trial.
17) We have carefully perused the relevant materials and
considered the rival contentions.
Discussion
18)
When the matter was listed before this Court for
hearing on 27.09.2012, Mr. Ashok Desai had brought to our
notice that the ECI is contemplating foolproof method in
9



Page
10
EVMs for which they are taking various steps in consultation
with the Technical Experts Committee and the views of all
recognized political parties. Mr. Desai also promised to
appraise this Court about the deliberations and the ultimate
decision to be taken by them in this regard. Accordingly, this
Court granted sufficient time to the ECI to file Status Report
regarding introduction of VVPAT system in EVMs to be used
in the elections.
19)
Pursuant to the directions of this Court, the ECI filed a
Status Report on the developments of VVPAT system. In the
said report, the ECI, citing various technicalities, prayed for
further time to make the system more robust for the field
conditions.
20)
On 15.12.2012, M/s BEL, Bangalore filed a report
showing the status of development of VVPAT system which
contains changes that have been carried out in VVPAT from
September to December, 2012 and also furnished
chronological changes made in VVPAT system after the field
trial of the VVPAT system held in July and August, 2012.

21)
Pursuant to the directions of this Court, the Secretary,
ECI, filed an affidavit highlighting the following steps/
information:
(i)
That vide its Affidavit dated 14.01.2013, the
Commission had filed the status report regarding
introduction of the VVPAT system in the Electronic
Voting Machines (EVMs).
(ii)
That subsequently, in the Technical Expert
Committee meeting held on 04.02.2013, the
Committee approved the design of the VVPAT and
decided that software fine tuning will be done and
completed by the end of February, 2013, and
modified design specifications will be submitted to
the Technical Expert Committee for approval.
The Committee also recommended that the
Commission may for using the VVPAT and that the
VVPAT should be tried in a bye-election.
(iii)
That in the Technical Expert Committee
meeting held on 19.02.2013, the Committee
finalized the VVPAT design.
The manufacturers, namely, M/s. Bharat Electronics
Limited and M/s. Electronics Corporation of India
Limited have quoted Rs. 16,200/- (excluding duties,
taxes and transport charges) per VVPAT system.
The Commission has decided to purchase sufficient
units of VVPAT for trials in a Bye-election, at an
approximate cost of Rs.72,90,000/- (Rupees seventy
two lakh ninety thousand) approximately.
(iv)
It is submitted that the Commission will
require approximately 13 lakh VVPAT units to be
manufactures for 13 lakh EVMs presently available
and roughly about Rs. 1690 crores (One Thousand
Six Hundred Ninety Crores)(i.e. 13 lakh units x
Rs.13,000 per unit) are required for the purpose of
implementation of the VVPAT system taking into
account the possible reduction in the cost per unit
when produced in bulk.
(v)
It is further submitted that in order to
implement the new system the Conduct of Election
Rules, 1961 will require certain amendments.
In this connection, vide letter No.
3/1/2013/Vol.II/SDR/86 dated 28.03.2013, the

11

Page
12
Commission has informed the Legislative
Department of the Ministry of Law and Justice
inter
alia
the various amendments required to the
relevant parts of Rules 49A to 49X, 66A, 55C, 56C,
57C and Form 17C of the Conduct of Elections Rules,
1961, as well as introduction of Rules 49MA and 56D
in the said Rules…
(vi)
That the Commission has called for a meeting
of all the recognized National and State Parties on
10
th
May, 2013 for the purpose of demonstration of
VVPAT unit to them and for discussion with them for
eliciting their views regarding use of VVPAT system
in the elections. The petitioner herein and others
interested in the matter would also be invited at the
meeting.”
22)
It is seen from the records that after various
deliberations with the experts and persons concerned with
the technology, the Technical Experts Committee approved
the final design of VVPAT units in its meeting held on
19.01.2013. In order to meet the directions of this Court and
for proper execution of VVPAT system, as noticed above, the
ECI in its letter dated 28.03.2013, addressed to the Secretary
to the Government of India, Ministry of Law and Justice stated
that necessary ground work for amendment to the Conduct
of Election Rules, 1961 (in relevant parts in Rules 49A to 49X,
66A, 55C, 56C, 57C and Form 17C) may be made so that the
amendment to the Rules can be notified immediately which

12

Page
13
will enable the ECI to use the VVPAT system in bye-elections
in consultation with the political parties. By placing all those
materials, the ECI requested the Ministry of Law and Justice
for drafting and notifying amendment Rules expeditiously.
23)
From the materials placed by the ECI, it is noted that
the purchase order has been placed with M/s BEL and M/s
ECIL for supplying 150 and 300 VVPAT units respectively at
Rs. 16,200/- per unit excluding excise duty, sales tax and
transportation etc. costing Rs. 72,90,000/- (approx.). The ECI
has also highlighted that if the VVPAT systems are ultimately
to be used with all the 13 lakh EVMs available, the total cost
in the purchase of VVPAT units may come to about Rs. 1,690
crores, taking into account the possible reduction in the cost
per unit due to bulk production the cost may come to Rs.
13,000/- per unit approximately.
24)
The affidavit dated 21.08.2013, filed on behalf of the
ECI, shows that the Ministry of Law and Justice, on
24.07.2013, referred the draft notification to amend the
Conduct of Election Rules, 1961 to provide for use of VVPAT
system of elections to the ECI for its views and comments.

13

Page
14
The ECI suggested certain minor modifications in the draft
notification and sent the same back to the Ministry of Law
and Justice on 02.08.2013 with a request to notify the
amendment Rules at the earliest. Accordingly, the Ministry
of Law and Justice notified the amendments to the Conduct
of Election Rules, 1961 in the Gazette of India vide
notification No. S.O. 2470(E) dated 14.08.2013 to enable use
of VVPAT with EVMs.
25)
The aforesaid affidavit of the ECI also shows that the
ECI had also convened a meeting of all the recognized
National and State political parties on 10.05.2013 and
demonstrated before their representatives the working of
VVPAT system. Separately, on the same day, the ECI also
held a meeting with individuals including the appellant
herein who had been engaged with the ECI over the past
several years regarding the functioning of EVMs. VVPAT
system was demonstrated before them as well.
Representatives of political parties and other individuals
expressed their satisfaction over the VVPAT system.
Thereafter, the ECI had decided to use the VVPAT system in

the bye-election from 51-Noksen (ST) Assembly Constituency
in the State of Nagaland. Instructions were issued to hold
special meetings with the contesting candidates in that
constituency to brief them about the use of VVPAT system.
The ECI also organized special training sessions for poll
officers for the use of VVPAT and steps were taken to
educate the electors for the same.
26)
After various hearings, when the matter was heard on
4.10.2013, an affidavit dated 01.10.2013 filed on behalf of
the ECI was placed before this Court. The said affidavit was
filed to place on record the performance/result of the
introduction of the VVPAT system in the bye-election from
51-Noksen (ST) Assembly Constituency of Nagaland for which
the poll was conducted on 04.09.2013 indicating the future
course of action to be decided by the ECI on the basis of said
performance. By this affidavit, it was brought to our notice
that since VVPAT system was being used for the first time,
the ECI has decided that intensive training shall be given to
the polling officers. Members of the Technical Experts

Committee of the ECI also went to supervise training and the

actual use of VVPAT in the bye-election. It is further stated
that the ECI also wrote letters to all the recognized political
parties and other persons, including the appellant herein,
engaged with the ECI on this subject inviting them to witness
the use of VVPAT. It is also brought to our notice that VVPAT
was successfully used in all the 21 polling stations of 51-
Noksen (ST) Assembly Constituency of Nagaland. It was also
stated that as per the Rules, the paper slips of VVPAT shall
not be counted normally except in case the Returning Officer
decides to count them on an application submitted by any of
the candidates. However, since VVPAT system was being
used for the first time in any election, the ECI decided on its
own to count paper slips of VVPAT in respect of all polling
stations. According to the ECI, no discrepancy was found
between the electronic and paper count.
27)
In the said affidavit, it is finally stated that the ECI has
decided to increase the use of VVPAT units in a phased
manner and for this purpose the ECI has already written to
the Government of India, Ministry of Law and Justice to issue
administrative and financial sanction for procurement of

20,000 units of VVPAT (10,000 each from M/s BEL and M/s
ECIL) costing about Rs. 38.01 crore.
28)
Though initially the ECI was little reluctant in
introducing “paper trail” by use of VVPAT, taking note of the
advantage in the system as demonstrated by Dr.
Subramanian Swamy, we issued several directions to the
ECI . Pursuant to the same, the ECI contacted several expert
bodies, technical advisers, etc. They also had various
meetings with National and State level political parties,
demonstrations were conducted at various places and finally
after a thorough examination and full discussion, VVPAT was
used successfully in all the 21 polling stations of 51-Noksen
(ST) Assembly Constituency of Nagaland. The information
furnished by the ECI, through the affidavit dated 01.10.2013,
clearly shows that VVPAT system is a successful one. We
have already highlighted that VVPAT is a system of printing
paper trail when the voter casts his vote, in addition to the
electronic record of the ballot, for the purpose of verification
of his choice of candidate and also for manual counting of
votes in case of dispute.

From the materials placed by both the sides, we are
satisfied that the “paper trail” is an indispensable
requirement of free and fair elections. The confidence of the
voters in the EVMs can be achieved only with the
introduction of the “paper trail”. EVMs with VVPAT system
ensure the accuracy of the voting system. With an intent to
have fullest transparency in the system and to restore the
confidence of the voters, it is necessary to set up EVMs with
VVPAT system because vote is nothing but an act of
expression which has immense importance in democratic
system.
30)
In the light of the above discussion and taking notice of
the pragmatic and reasonable approach of the ECI and
considering the fact that in general elections all over India,
the ECI has to handle one million (ten lakhs) polling booths,
we permit the ECI to introduce the same in gradual stages or
geographical-wise in the ensuing general elections. The
area, State or actual booth(s) are to be decided by the ECI
and the ECI is free to implement the same in a phased

19
manner. We appreciate the efforts and good gesture made
by the ECI in introducing the same.
31)
For implementation of such a system (VVPAT) in a
phased manner, the Government of India is directed to
provide required financial assistance for procurement of units
of VVPAT.
32)
Before parting with the case, we record our appreciation
for the efforts made by Dr. Subramanian Swamy as well as
the ECI, in particular Mr. Ashok Desai and Ms. Meenakshi
Arora, learned senior counsel for the ECI.
33)
With the above directions, the appeal and the writ
petition are disposed of. No separate order is required in the
applications for intervention. Both sides are permitted to
approach this Court for further direction(s), if need arises.
