The Uttarakhand High Court on Tuesday gave a big blow to the Congress Party and its leaders in the case of disturbances in Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs). The court has dismissed all the petitions filed by Congress leaders.

Election petitions filed by five leaders, including former Congress minister Navprabhat, were heard in Justice Lokpal Singh's court. The court reserved the decision after holding a final hearing in the case on 14 October. Today, the final verdict in this case has been issued by the court and it is said that the cause of the litigation in the EVMs has not arisen and the election petitions have not been confirmed under the Public Representation Act.

It is clear from the court's decision that EVMs have not been disturbed. On this basis, the court has dismissed all the petitions. This decision of the High Court has also put a lock on the mouths of those leaders who often cry about the disturbances in EVMs.

Earlier, the leaders of the Bharatiya Janata Party elected legislators also misjudged the EVM and questioned the maintainability (validity) of the petitions. In 2017, BJP MLAs Munna Singh Chauhan (Vikasnagar), Khajandas (Dehradun), Adesh Kumar (Haridwar), Ganesh Joshi (Mansuri) and Congress leaders Navprabhat, Rajkumar, Ambareesh Kumar, Godavari Thapli and Vikram Singh filed a petition in 2017. Challenging the election of Vijay Singh Panwar (Pratapnagar), it was said that EVMs have been rigged in the elections in their constituencies.

It was also alleged by the petitioners that EVM machines have been exchanged. EVM machines provided by the Returning Officer have not been used in the election. Apart from this, the predicted results of the elections were already announced by the supporters of the won candidates and they were made viral on social media.

Advocates of the petitioners, Ravindra Singh Bisht, said that after getting the copy of the order, they will study it and challenge it in the Supreme Court. He said that he believes that there are sufficient reasons for the suit in these cases.

On the other hand, State President of Bharatiya Janata Party Banshidhar Bhagat lashed out at the Congress, saying that after the High Court order, the real face of Congress has come to the fore and the Congress has been resorting to lies on EVMs.
