Mukherjee also said there can be no room for speculation that challenge the very basis of Indian democracy. He posted his clarification from his twitter handle a while ago, which read:

“I am concerned at reports of alleged tampering of voters’ verdict. The safety and security of EVMs which are in the custody of ECI is the responsibility of the Commission.”

“People’s mandate is sacrosanct and has to be above any iota of reasonable doubt.”

Mr. Mukherjee added as a firm believer in the country’s institutions, it is his considered opinion that it is the ‘workmen’ who decide how the institutional ‘tools’ perform.

Several video of alleged movement and tampering of EVMs went viral on social media, however, the EC has dismissed all the charges and suggested nothing was wrong.
