LS polls: Security arrangements ensure that EVM can't be tampered with, says Former CEC

Ahead of the declaration of Lok Sabha elections results, while speaking to ANI in Bhopal today, Former chief election commissioner (CEC) OP Rawat said, "Electronic Voting Machines (EVM) can't be tampered with. EVM security protocol is so strict whenever a strong room has to be opened, representatives of all political parties have to be there, machines are taken out in their presence, mock poll is also conducted." "In fact when making EVM ready for the polling, a mock poll is again conducted at polling station where all the polling agents are asked to vote and then count, so all these arrangements ensure that EVMs can't be tampered with," Rawat added.
