The Supreme Court dismissed the petition regarding the election on ballot paper, saying that the election will be held on EVM.


The Supreme Court has rejected the petition filed in the Supreme Court to remove the Electronic Voting Machine (EVM) and hold the election on the ballot paper. The court said that there is no merit in this application. However, lawyer Manohar Lal Sharma filed a petition in the Supreme Court and requested to remove the EVM and conduct the election again on the ballot paper.

In his petition, Manohar Lal challenged Section 61(a) of the Representation of the People Act, seeking to hold elections on ballot papers. Section 61(a) of the Representation of the People Act provides for voting in EVMs by removing the ballot papers.

Lawyer Manohar challenged in the court that Article 61(a) of the Representation of the People has not yet been approved by Parliament. Due to this, Manohar Lal Sharma claimed that the amount of voting done in the EVM so far is invalid. Therefore, elections should be held with the help of ballot papers in every place.

Let me tell you that this application was made on behalf of lawyer Manohar Lal in January this year. In this, he argued that the elections to be held in Uttar Pradesh, Goa, Punjab, Manipur, and Uttarakhand should be done on ballot papers instead of EVMs.
