The “left” tukde-tukde gang misses that the common Indian is deeply nationalistic. Congress completely yielded that to the BJP, even showing up in JNU to support #TukdeTukde.

That can win in editorials in #NYT and #Economist, it suits them; it can never win hearts or heartland.
The electorate is nationalistic. It is Hindu.

The “Left” in India is out of touch.

BJP is far more vulnerable on its right flank. If Congress had announced “Mandir vahin banayenge”, would have created serious disruption.

Agree bhai.

I’m saying that you cannot attack the mainstream and hope to win. Many nationalistic Muslims supported Ram Temple but Congress took Islamist view.

Nothing is “perfect.” There is a margin of error (MoE) in every system.

MoE in enforcement of rules, in eliminating duplicate or false votes.

There’ll even be some tallying errors in EVM vs VVPAT. Errors via EVM will still be less than using paper ballots.

Expect #TukdeTukde gang to make a huge fuss on slightest discrepancy. They will blame EVMs though ANY voting mechanism will have some discrepancy. Paper is much worse when a lot of votes are declared invalid and counting itself is inexact. (Remember hanging chads in Bush-Gore.)
A few cases of “imperfect” match between VVPAT and EVMs won’t mean much. Printing VVPAT is also a mechanical process, counting is a manual process.

In case some discrepancy happens, important to keep a sense of proportion. The aim of #TukdeTukdeGang would be to find an excuse

The EC has made process of securing EVMs clear. Fake videos of #EVMs which are not in use in current election are being shared, fake “news channels” are spreading rumors of #EVMhacking, all for a singular intent.

To attack democracy and the voter by the loser #TukdeTukde gang.
One can always find undated videos with no reference point. When is the video shot, are these EVMs in use in current election, are these the serial numbers that were voted, none of this is present in the video.

But to attack Indian democracy these videos are being circulated.
Because to circulate a false video takes very little effort. To debunk it takes time. That is what fake news peddlers count on.
