2009 Elections rigged by Sonia Congress, A Portentous precursor for Bihar assembly elections

published on November 23, 2010

V.SUNDARAM I.A.S., 23 Nov. 2010

BIHAR ASSEMBLY ELECTIONS ARE GOING TO BE DECLARED TOMORROW (WEDNESDAY 24-11-2010). The counting will begin tomorrow morning and by noon the results will be known.I have no doubt that theBihar Elections have been rigged in the same manner as the 2009 Parliamentary General Elections were rigged by the Sonia Congress Party through its subterranean ‘working’ links with the Election Commission. This inference is confirmed by the fact that recently Rahul Gandhi had very recently declared at an Election Rally in Bihar: “Sonia Congress performance in UP in 2009 Parliamentary Elections will be repeated in Assembly Elections in Bihar!

The fact of the matter is thatParliamentary Elections in 20 ConstituenciesinUP were successfully rigged by theSonia Congress Party in May 2009.The same rigging technology has been deployed in Bihar as well to ensure the nefariously pre-planned and definite land-slide victory for theSonia Congress Partyin at least40 to 50 Assembly Constituencies.That is whyRahul Gandhihas made his recent declaration aboutSonia Congress victory with such unabashed confidence. The aim of the Sonia Congress Party is to form a coalition Government in Bihar. If that is not possible, then to impose President’s Rule (which meansfirangiSonia Gandhi Rule through her chosen Congress minion Pratibha Patil, the President of India with shady credentials!)

To successfully and cleverlyhide the rigging processinBihar,some Private TV Channelswere commandeered byfirangi memsahib’s Congress Party to openly announce in advance that the coalition alliance of JDU and BJP in Bihar will sweep the Assembly Elections in nearly 150 to 180 Assembly Constituencies. Soon thereafter Lalu Prasad Yadav joined the chorus of Rahul Gandhi by raucously declaring to this effect: “People of Bihar will throw out Nitish Kumar. RJD will form the Government!” Two days later Lalu Prasad Yadav sang another tune: ”The EVMs are totally tamperable and unreliable. The JDU and the BJP are going to rig the AssemblyElections in Bihar.”I have a hunch that Lalu Prasad Yadav has already come to some underground understanding with Sonia Gandhi to form a coalition Government in Bihar.

What is the corner stone or foundation stone of this rigged artificial political edifice to be erected in Bihar the day After Tomorrow (25-11-2010 Thursday)? The secret lies in rigging The Election Process through the deployment of specially designed EVMs to ensure the undoubted and ‘planned’ success of Sonia Party candidates only and no one else! Sonia Congress Party perfected the rigging technology through its 24×7 Party Functionary Navin Chawla (with a shady official background like Thomas the Central Vigilance Commissioner who has been indicted yesterday by the Supreme Court of India for his corrupt background during his days as a Civil Servant in Kerala). Let me furnish some more details.

Sonia Congress guided byfirangi memsahibplanned, organized, launched and succeeded in rigging the 2009 General Elections in 108 Parliamentary Constituencies. In these 108 constituencies about 290000 EVMs were especially acquired by the Election Commission in January 2009 with modified programmes for date/time stamping; thus 2 types of EVMs were used, the old units without date/time stamping (about 11.10 lakhs of them) and the rest (2.90 lakhs)with the new “improvised” feature claimed by BEL, the Government of India Company which made the programme change. Thus in all 14 lakhs of EVMs were used.

With this programme change in respect of newly acquired 2.90 lakh EVMs (nefariously plotted by the Sonia Congress Party!), an entry programme to modify was provided for any programmer to modify thePROM (Programmable Read Only Memory)since time is determined outside of the balloting unit and thus beyond the control of the EVM system.

Selective rigging was done through more than 290,000 EVMs during the Parliamentary Elections to impact the results in favour of Sonia Congress Party during the Parliamentrary Elections in 2009. The seats won by the Congress in UP, lost by the AIADMK Party and the Communist Parties, the seats won by the BJD in Orissa were all planned and achieved by the Election Commission in 2009General Elections. A remote control was used to record 4 votes for the desired Party for every vote polled by any opposing Party.

These facts and figures have been brought out very succinctly and brilliantly by Dr.Anupam Saraph in his landmark article ‘The Case For Banning EVMs” in the explosive book titledELECTRONIC MACHINES, Unconstitutional and Tamperable edited by Dr.Subramanian SwamyandDr.S.Kalyanaraman. The front cover of this book which was released last month in Chennai and Cochin has been presented at the top of this article above.

Dr.Anupam Saraphis a respected innovator and polymath who has been an advisor ingovernance,informaticsandstrategic planning.Anupam Saraphobtained a PhD from theRijksuniversiteit Groningenin Informatics while working with theIMAGEteam at theRIVMandIVEMin the Netherlands. He is an acclaimed leadership, strategy and innovationmentor. His leadership, innovation and foresight in diverse sectors have left a lasting value.

DR.ANUPAM SARAPHhas explained in detail as to how the Election Commission lost all control over the EVM system because BEL, ECI contracted to make the Systems had subcontracted the work to private contractors.No credible claims have been made by theCECabout theSystems Auditconductedon the acquired EVMsand deployed during the electoral process.

I fully endorse the conclusion ofDr.Anupam Seraph:“CEC has clearly goofed up relying upon a scrappy Indiresan Committee Report. One has to compare it with the professionalism with which System Auditors audited the EVMs in USAâ.India;s e-elections rigged? Omesh Saigal, an Engineering Graduate from IIT and former Delhi Chief Secretary (IAS Officer), stunned the Electioin Commission with a presentation showing that the software used in the EVMs can be manipulated in favour of a particular Party or Candidate. Following the presentation, Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Navin Chawla ordered an inquiry into the possibility of such rigging during the recently concluded Parliamentary Elections in India and Indian-held Kashmir (IHK).”SinceNavin Chawlawas totally committed to ensuring the victory ofSonia Congress candidates at all costs, he never took any action to stem the rot that was brought to his notice by Dr.Anupam Seraph.

Dr.Anupam Seraphhad brought it to the notice of the nation and the Election Commission that even 2 weeks before the votes were counted and the election results announced, the Election Commission had ‘projected’ (euphemism for rigging!)all the details relating to the results relating to more than 100 ParliamentaryConstituencies on their website and that he had taken it up with the Election Commission to ascertain the motives behind the display of such details even before the conclusion of the Electoral Process as a whole. Though he sent several communications in this connection to the Election Commission even before the dates of counting, yet he received no reply from the Election Commission. Finally when the truth about selective rigging to ensure the success of Sonia Congress candidates in more than 108 Parliamentary Constituencies came out, it was stern grim and scorching.

IN RESPECT OF 108 PARLIAMENTARY CONSTITUENCIES WHERE THE SONIA CONGRESS PARTY CANDIDATES WON, THE VOTES POLLED BY THEM TALLIED ON A 1 (ONE) IS TO 1 (ONE) BASIS WITH THE VOTES THAT WERE PROJECTED ON THE WEBSITE OF THE ELECTION COMMISSION 2 WEEKS BEFORE THE DATES OF COUNTING. THIS IS THE CLASSIC INSTANCE OF SUPERB RIGGING BY THE ELE4CTION COMMISSION.

I understand that Kirit Somiah, the BJP leader had taken an All-Party Delegation to the Election Commission in August 2009 andDr.Anupam Seraphwas also a part of this delegation. At that meetingDr.Seraphinvited the attention of the Election Commission to the Voting Data relating to the 108 Parliamentary Constituencies displayed on the website of the Election Commission even 2 weeks before the date of counting. Till date no reply has been received byDr.Anupam Seraphfrom the Election Commission. Bernard Shaw was right when he wrote: “Illicit distillers and vendors of contraband opium cannot be expected to be straightforward in respect of WHEN AND HOW AND WHAT AND WHERE AND WHOM AND WHO of their nefarious operations. Three Cheers to the Election Commission for their transparent and honest malfunctioning with Sonia Congress gusto, now and forever!

The landmark book edited byDr.Subramanan Swamy and Dr.Kalyanaraman graphically demonstrates and proves WHY ANDHOW the EVMs areare unconstitutional and tamperable.

The previousChief Election Commissioner, Shri Navin Chawlamade a false claim that no one has been able to demonstrate the tamperability of Indian EVMs. Centre for National Renaissance took up the challenge and organized an International Conference of IT experts, constitutional lawyers in Chennai on 13 February 2010. The contributions made by experts from USA, Germany, Netherlands and India, at this International Conference held in Chennai have been included in the bookedited by Dr.Subramanian Swamy and Dr.S.Kalyanaraman referred to above. These contributions demonstrate and prove beyond any doubt the unconstitutionality and tamperability of Indian EVMs. The EVMs as presently used are also illegal since the provisions of the Information Technology Act have been violated.

The book is a comprehensive review of Information Technology, legal and constitutional aspects related to the use of Indian EVMs. The book is expected to create the necessary public opinion to make the EC withdraw the EVMs if they cannot be safeguarded to public satisfaction, and thus return to the paper ballot system.THE BOOK MAKES A HOST OF STARTLING AND ALARMING REVELATIONS ON THE USE OF ELECTRONIC VOTING MACHINES (EVMS) IN INDIAN ELECTIONS WHICH CALL FOR A PARLIAMENTARY PROBE:The continued use of electronic voting machines in Indian elections is unconstitutional because Indian EVMs are non-transparent and vitiate the requirement of voter control over the balloting and counting process, which is a basic feature of India’s Constitution.

EVMs are tamperable, posing the risk of wholesale rigging of election results. Computer experts have consistently held that Indian EVMs are not completely secure from software and hardware manipulation. Also, Indian EVMs can be hacked both before and after elections to alter election results. In fact the Election Commission proved it to the hilt in respect of 108 Parliamentary Constituencies in the General Elections held in 2009.

UNIVERSAL USE OF EVMS IN INDIAN ELECTIONS MAY ALSO BE ILLEGAL AS PER A JUDGEMENT OF THE SUPREME COURT OF INDIA IN 1984. THE BOOK MOREOVER DOCUMENTS THE FAILURE OF ELECTRONIC CORPORATION OF INDIA AND BHARAT ELECTRONICS (THE PUBLIC-SECTOR UNIT SUPPLIERS OF INDIAN EVMS) TO OBTAIN INTERNATIONAL PATENT FOR INDIAN EVMS. THIS FAILURE FLAGS THE DANGER OF PRIVATE EVM MANUFACTURERS PRODUCING LOOK-ALIKE EVMS. THE BOOK MAKES IT CLEAR THAT THE ELECTION PROCESS HAS BEEN COMPROMISED BY GETTING COMPONENTS AND SERVICES FOR INDIAN EVMS THROUGH FOREIGN SOURCES AND AGENTS OF FOREIGN COMPANIES. ECI HAS TO CERTIFY IF ECIL AND BEL REALLY MAKE ALL THE COMPONENTS AND SERVICES USED IN INDIAN EVMS. THAT THE INDIAN EVMS HAVE EMBEDDED (BURNT-IN OR MASKED) PROGRAMS IN ELECTRONIC CONTROLLERS BURNT-IN OR MASKED BY FOREIGN COMPANIES OR THEIR AGENTS; SUCH PROGRAMS CANNOT BE READ BY ECI OR ECIL OR BEL. SO, NO ONE KNOWS AND NO ONE CAN VERIFY AND VALIDATE HOW THE VOTES ARE POLLED OR COUNTED BY INDIAN EVMS.

This book includes the following documents:

a resolution adopted by the experts of the International Conference recommending return to paper ballots if the transparency and tamperability issues cannot be addressed satisfactorily.
The following letters from independent experts raising serious objections to Indian EVMs and recommending a return to paper ballots:
*Letter of Prof. David Dill of Stanford University to Navin Chawla, CEC
*Letter of US Professors and IT Experts to Chief Election Commissioner of India
*Letter of Shri Omesh Saigal Former Chief Secretary, Delhi, to Prime Minister

EVMs have already been banned in many countries, including Germany, the Netherlands, Ireland and Italy, and the list is getting longer. Thus, there is a growing lack of confidence in EVMs the world over. Why should India persist with a failed system that has been abandoned worldwide?The risk of wholesale rigging inherent in EVMs, howsoever small, cannot be accepted in a democracy where the stakes in winning elections are so high. The book brings together a panel of political, constitutional and technical experts and makes a powerful and substantive case for the discontinuation of EVMs in Indian elections if these cannot be safeguarded to public satisfaction.

The following excerpts from arecent historic judgement given by the German Supreme Court which declared that EVMs are unconstitutionalare worth quoting and very relevant to India:

1)In a Republic, elections are a matter for the entire people and a joint concern of all citizens. Consequently, the monitoring of the Election Procedure must also be a matter for and a task of the citizen. Each citizen must be able to comprehend and verify the central steps in the elections reliably and without any special prior technical knowledge.

2)The public nature of the elections is also anchored in the principle of the Rule of Law. The public nature of the state’s exercise of power, which is based on the Rule of Law, serves its transparency and controllability. It is contingent on the citizen being able to perceive acts of the state bodies. This also applies to the activities of the election bodies.

3)The principle of the public nature of elections requires that all essential steps in the elections are subject to public examinability unless other constitutional interests justify such an exception. Particular significance attaches here to the monitoring of the Election Act and to the ascertainment of the Election Result.

4)An election procedure in which the voter cannot reliably comprehend whether his or her vote is unfalsifiably recorded and included in the ascertainment of the Election Result, and how the total votes cast are assigned and counted, excludes central elements of the election procedure from public monitoring, and hence does not comply.

5)Restrictions on possibilities for citizens to monitor the election events cannot be compensated for by sample devices in the context of the type approval procedure or in the selection of the Voting Machines specifically used in the elections prior to their deployment being subjected to verification by an official institution as to the compliance with certain security requirements and their proper technical performance. The monitoring of the essential steps in the election promotes well-founded trust in the correctness of the election certainly in the necessary manner that the citizen himself or herself can reliably verify the election event.

6)The Federal Voting Machine Ordinance violates the principle of the public nature of elections under Article 38 in conjunction with Article 20.1 and 20.2 of the Basic Law because in the use of computer-controlled Voting Machines it guarantees neither effective monitoring of the Election Act nor the reliable verifiability of the Election Result.

7)The public nature of elections requires in the deployment of computer-controlled Voting Machines that the essential steps in the Election Act and the ascertainment of the Election Results can be reviewed reliably and without special expert knowledge. Such features are not available or contained in the Federal Voting Machines.

The Election Commission has let down the people of India in the General Elections last year by cleverly and unscrupulously deploying EVMs with special features to rig the elect
ons in favour of Sonia Congress Party in 108 parliamentary Constituencies. Both Gopalswami and Navin Chawla are collectively responsible for this disastrous lapse. Both of them have shown nothing but indivisible contempt towards the broad issues relating to the conduct of free, fair, reliable and verifiable elections raised by the German Supreme Court above.This book of Dr.Subramanian Swamy and Dr.S.Kalyanaraman establishes the solid reality that the EVMs are not tamper proof and exposes the falsity of the claim of Election Commissioners Gopalaswami and Navin Chawla.

To conclude, my perception is that the Sonia Congress Party was able to win in 108 Parliamentrary Constituancies only because of rigging syage managed by the Election Commission. This has been documented very effectively by Dr.Anupam Saraph in his article titled‘The Case for Banning EVMs’.Though he brought this to the notice of the Election Commission long before the dates of counting and announcement of final results, yet the Election Commission ignored all his letters very much like the Prime Minister and his Office ignoring all the letters of Dr.Subramanian Swamy relating to the sanction of prosecution of former Union Telecom Minister A.Rajavisavisthe 2 G Spectrum Fraud.

TOMORROW (24-11-2010) WE WILL SEE THE RESULTS OF THE RIGGING OPERATION OF THE ELECTORAL PROCESS IN BIHAR. I am writing this article 24 hours before the date of counting in Bihar.No one can say I am talking after the event. The Election Commission of India seems to exist only for the purpose of rigging the elections in a selective manner to serve the interests of the Sonia Congress party in general and the political interests of the firangi memsahib and her family in particular.

I would conclude this story by quotinga poemtitled”Trapped In A Cage” by Madge Andikawhich I read 3 years ago:

Trapped In A Cage
We cannot move on and up in our lives
We see every part of our lives as a failure
We have become dishonest and unforgiving
Our experience is so miserable, that it has no meaning
We have developed negative emotions
We seem not to care about our neighbours anymore
We have divided boundaries and hearts

Our pace is slow
We are not balanced between our needs and the needs of others
We are not brave enough to remove the dead wood
The Politicians have killed our passion
We want to revolt against the tyranny that represses our freedom but we cannot
They have led us backwards
We are not wise anymore because we did not choose wise leaders
We need unity but we isolate ourselves from each other
All in the name of not my tribesman

We want to change for the better
We want to go forward, expand on what we know
Use our energy wisely to build our Nation
We do not want to be like anyone else
We want to have powerful people to help us achieve our goals
We want to find our niche and follow our passion
We know that freedom is the result of self-discipline
We are in control and we will use this value as the way forward

    Chawla would have done it
    If it was Navin Chawla, this prediction would have definitely come true. And the current political atmosphere in the country is also not very good for the Italian Congress.

    Poor states like Bihar and UP have always shown the path for the country in troubled times – not the so-called fully literate state like Kerala. Remember we re-elected Indira congress immediately after Emergency. It was again Bihar and UP that sealed her fate. 5

    Bihar Elections
    Fully agree with Ajith. Keralites have always trodden a different path. They never join the national main-stream with their aversion for anything related to the hindi belt. For Keralites, states like UP, Bihar or Gujarat belong to some other country. Most of them eventhough literate are just frogs in the well. 5

    Maharashtra and Jharkand results
    Maharashtra results were not at all beleivable. For the worst governance by the Cong-NCP government, it is strange that they won the assembly elections. THE RIGGING IS DONE VERY SELECTIVELY AND NO PATTERN COULD BE ESTABLISHED. 5
