Use EVMs with VVPAT in Tripura: Sitaram

The President of the Tripura unit of BJP, Shri Biplab Deb, has cast aspersions on the objectivity and fairness of the Electronic Voting Machines. This comes in the background of the widespread apprehensions about EVMs. CPI(M) General Secretary Sitaram Yechury has written a letter to the Chief Election Commissioner and demanded among other things that in elections in Tripura EVMs  with Voter-Verified Paper Audit Trail (VVPAT) should be used. We are herewith releasing the full text of the letter.

P.B. demands that till all alternative arrangements like the availability of required currency notes and the recalibration of the ATM machines are completed, people should be allowed to transact in rupees 500 and 1000 notes till the time limit set by the government of December 31, 2016

Lets Not Forget, RSS is Anti-Dalits!

Soon after the PMs condemnation of the Una incident in his post Mann Ki Baat address, the RSS also criticised the attack on Dalits. The timing of the two statements shows the weakness of the conviction behind it. The attack on Dalit youth in Una took place on July 11 and the Prime Minister spoke against it only on August 7. Both the statements were made almost a month after the Una incident. RSS's seriousness is also evident from the fact that, along with condemnation, it added that the Prime Minister should have not called 80 percent Gau Rakshaks fake.
