I think the EVM conspiracy theory is just that- a bizarre conspiracy theory but hashtags on "insulting EVMs" ?! EVM is the new soldier?

Tehseen isn’t the only one who suspects the EVMs were rigged during the assembly elections – Delhi CM, Arvind Kejriwal also alleged that EVMs were faulty which affected the outcomes for his party in the recently concluded Punjab Elections where the party was hailed the strongest contender.
Even Mayawati, the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief blamed the EVMs saying they were hacked and tampered with to favor the outcomes for a particular political party.
So, can the EVMs be actually rigged? Please, leave your comments below.
