Kumar said "All judicial cases have been decided in favor of EVMs. Those who are working with India's defense are the ones who have developed EVM's and if a voter feels that they press one button but if some other button lights up, the voter can go to polling officer and register a complaint, but frivolous claims will be prosecuted and genuine cases will be taken seriously”. Moreover a large scale awareness campaign will be launched to increase voter participation in the state. District collectors have been roped in to increase voter participation in the polls that are expected to take place in December.
