has asked its IT cell and youth wing to travel across rural areas in the state and make people aware of the various modes of cashless transactions The party is also keen to assess the impact of demonetisation on the common man and has directed party workers to convey Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s message to people that demonetisation was in national interest and they can make transactions normally through digital banking Senior state party leaders are holding a meeting in this regard at party state headquarters in Lucknow on Sunday to decide on the date to begin this campaign Watch what else is making news Party state vice-president JPS Rathore said the party’s IT workers will be engaged in spreading awareness about the use of different modes of cashless transactions through mobilephones and cards He said training workshops will be organised first for workers at the regional unit and then at the district unit level The trained workers will later fan out across the state to train people in both urban and rural areas about cashless transactions Rathore said the IT workers would focus on educational institutions where youths can learn the technology quickly and train more people in their localities BJP national secretary Mahendra Singh said the youth wing has already started a campaign at the grassroot level Singh said social media will also be used to popularise cashless transactions A few days earlier Singh and Rathore had attended an interactive session with Union minister Piyush Goyal party national general secretary (Organisation) Ramlal and convener of

Aadhar Number baking Speaking at a public meet in Kushinagar last month Prime Minister Narendra Modi had appealed to the gathering and BJP workers to display cuttings of ads in print media regarding use of cashless transactions outside shops and outlets to create awareness about the process “As party workers across the state are busy in campaigns like Parivartan Yatra OBC Sammelan youth conventions and Mahila Sammelan in every Assembly segment they do not get enough time to execute the idea of popularising cashless transactions As these sammelans and yatras have already been organised in most segments the campaign regarding cashless transactions start soon” said a BJP leader For all the latest India News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by S Y Quraishi | Updated: March 17 2017 6:31 pm A combination of safeguards ensures that these machines are fully tamper-proof Top News The electronic voting machine (EVM) controversy has raised its head again Ever since EVMs were introduced in 1982 they have been surrounded by challenges The Election Commission of India has demonstrated time and again how the system is safe and fool-proof A combination of safeguards ensures that these machines are fully tamper-proof Broadly these can be summed up in four categories: Software and technical administrative independent technical watchdog oversight and judicial scrutiny The inventory of technical safeguards is long The task of making the machines has been given exclusively to two central public sector undertakings BEL and ECIL which are entrusted with developing high security defence equipment The software used is burnt into a one-time programmable/masked chip so that it cannot be altered or tampered with The machines are not networked either by wire or by wireless with any other machine or system Therefore there is no possibility of data corruption by hacking The software for this chip is developed in-house by BEL and ECIL independently The software development team is separate from the production team and reports directly to the CMD Samples of EVMs from production batches are regularly checked by the quality assurance group which is an independent group within BEL and ECIL Administrative security measures include fool-proof protective custody at all stages — from storing the machines in the strong room (the warehouse) to moving them to the polling stations through three levels of checks and three mock polls Political party representatives are always present to witness and certify the entire process Additionally this is videographed The last-minute check is a mock poll (the third in a series) on the polling day before the actual poll of at least 100 votes in the presence of candidates or their authorised agents to demonstrate that the EVM is working properly Any defective machine is immediately replaced Then the poll begins After the polls sealed EVMs are taken under heavy armed escort to the strong room where these are stored till counting Party agents are encouraged to follow the movement and put their seals on the locks of the strong room and keep 24×7 vigil They actually sleep there CCTV supplements the three-tier armed security A very important safeguard is an independent Technical Advisory Committee of five professors of top IITs The EC does not take a single technology decision without their scrutiny and approval I have personally seen how rigorous their scrutiny is The functioning of the ECI-EVMs has been challenged before several high courts The courts examined technicians and computer experts who were either produced by the parties or summoned by the court itself All the courts were satisfied about the non-tamperability of the ECI-EVMs The Karnataka High Court went to the extent of commenting that “this (ECI-EVM) invention is undoubtedly a great achievement in the electronic and computer technology and a national pride” The Kerala High Court also recorded its appreciation of the efficiency of the mechanism of the ECI-EVMs The highest judicial examination was by the apex court (SC 2013 Subramanian Swamy vs ECI) It was contended that to make EVMs completely tamper-proof and transparent a voter verifiable paper audit trail (VVPAT) is essential The EC informed the Supreme Court that it was already working on the concept and its Technical Advisory Committee had already approved the design on May 26 2011 and got a field test in five climatic zones (Leh Thiruvananthapuram Sohra in Meghalaya Jaisalmer and Delhi) The field test showed many bugs which were corrected and certified by the second field test at the same locations The court appreciated the “pragmatism and reasonable approach” of the EC and commented “we appreciate the efforts and good gesture made by ECI in introducing the system” Coming to the conclusion that the paper trail is an “indispensable requirement of free and fair elections” the court “directed” the government of India to provide the requisite funds for the procurement of VVPAT machines for which the EC gave an estimate of Rs 1690 crore for 13 million machines The court allowed the EC to introduce the machines in phases which it has been doing Controversies about EVMs have been raised time and again Every political party has questioned the EVMs at one point or another When they win with the same machines they just keep quiet instead of publicly apologising and eating their words What is the course open to stakeholders in the current controversy Since many parties have gone to court the court can order the sealing of all the machines about which suspicions were raised These EVMs can be checked in the presence of the political parties That will clinch the argument once and for all Where the VVPAT was used the cross-checking with vote slips will suffice Secondly just as EVMs were used in every state election after 1998 till the 2004 general election the EC must start using VVPATs in the entire elections to the state assemblies The pilot phase is over The EC should also counter the propaganda which seems to be spreading like wildfire more aggressively and proactively Although it did deny the allegation the media did not give it as much coverage as it is giving to the rumours Public faith and trust in the electoral system is of paramount importance It must not be allowed to be shaken The people and political parties have a right to question and the EC a duty to give convincing answers It must become more vocal The EC’s biggest challenge is to conduct the 2019 general election with VVPAT It must speed up the production of the requisite number of machines Funds must not be a constraint Remember it’s the “direction” of the Supreme Court The writer is former chief election commisssioner of India

would betray them by “sitting in the lap” of the BJP and the Congress Leading a cavalcade of almost a hundred vehicles through Uttar Pradesh en route to a rally in Kanpur on Sunday Kejriwal was greeted by small groups of about 50 people as he crossed towns and villages and often climbed on top of an open jeep to address the gatherings Through the day the subject of his speeches largely remained the same — attacks on the existing political parties and Mukesh Ambani With party leaders Manish Sisodia and Sanjay Singh by his side Kejriwal said “Narendra Modi and Rahul Gandhi are the

give your votes to the SP and the BSP In the end they will sit on the laps of these two parties The AAP is the only alternative that you have” Kejriwal also showcased the AAP’s willingness to fight graft and spoke of his party’s achievements while in government in Delhi “We halved the power rates and gave 700 litres of water free Corruption came down in Delhi… we filed five FIRs against Sheila Dikshit In Rajasthan there is proof that there is corruption in Robert Vadra’s land holdings But they (BJP) do nothing Narendra Modi ki bhi Sonia Gandhi se setting ho gayi hai” he said While the roadshow could be likened to the ones he conducted in Delhi in the last days of his campaign for the Assembly polls Kejriwal did on occasion attempt to appease the local crowd In Hapur for instance the place which saw the largest congregation of AAP supporters he made a small detour to garland a statue of Choudhary Charan Singh In Pilkhuwa where Sisodia hails from he exhorted the waiting crowd “not to let Manish down” And when Kejriwal spoke of the ills of the purported price rise because of the increase in oil prices the first commodity he mentioned was “fertiliser” important to a largely agricultural belt Party sources said the roadshow was aimed at judging the party’s popularity and organisational strength in Uttar Pradesh “It was good to see that there were people waving and cheering us at every step In fact a large number of those who had vehicles in the cavalcade were people from the state units” said a party leader Through the nearly 400-kilometre journey to Hardoi
