Comments by Simranjit Singh Mann: Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) states that no newspaper or a person can hide the fraud the Election Commission is playing on the people of THIS (Theocratic Hindu Indian State) . The machines are flawed and can be monitored to give the figures of voting which the extremist and fanatic Hindu state led by the BJP-RSS Premier Narinder Modi wants.
Our party recommends that the ballot paper be replaced and these VVPAT be thrown into the scrap heap. If ballot paper elections are alright with the US, UK, France, Canada, Australia, Japan etc we the minority people ask why this method is not good for a backward and poverty stricken state as THIS (Theocratic Hindu Indian State) .
Our party favours inviting UN, EU, China, Russia, UK, US, South Africa and neighbouring Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Sri Lanka, Burma and Pakistan observers for the next coming assembly and parliamentary elections. Our point is if the Hindu states Union government sends out its country’s observers to other countries holding elections then it is only fair to us minorities, SCs, STs, OBCs to have outside observers. After all THIS (Theocratic Hindu Indian State) and the Election Commission hold that they conduct free and fair elections. That is their point of view against ours that these elections are rigged.
