The Congress will continue its political campaign for widespread use of VVPAT to increase people’s confidence in the electoral process. This reaction by the party came after the Supreme Court on Friday dismissed the petitions demanding full verification of the votes cast through EVMs.

Former Union Minister and Congress General Secretary Jairam Ramesh said the Congress was not directly or indirectly a party to the VVPAT-related petition which was dismissed by the Supreme Court today. Ramesh said in a post on

On Prime Minister Narendra Modi calling the Supreme Court decision a big slap on the Congress, Ramesh said the BJP got a big slap when the Supreme Court struck down their electoral bond scheme. But the Prime Minister says the Supreme Court decision on VVPAT is a slap to the opposition and we must apologize to the state.

He said in X, remember that a few weeks ago the Supreme Court gave a strong slap to the Prime Minister when it declared the corrupt bond scheme not only illegal but also unconstitutional. The Congress leader said, the Prime Minister should apologize to the country for collecting Rs 8200 crore in the last five years through these four popular ways of collecting money. One – donate, do business. Second – take the contract, give a bribe. Third week – extortion and fourth – fake companies.

The Supreme Court on Friday dismissed the petitions seeking to verify all votes cast through EVM machines using VVPAT machines. The Supreme Court said that blind disbelief in any initiative of this system creates false suspicion. A bench of Justices Sanjeev Khanna and Dipankar Dutta said democracy means creating harmony and trust among all institutions. He dismissed all the petitions in this case.
