Home Media Now, even Rajdeep Sardesai abandons opposition parties' EVM clown car

Now, even Rajdeep Sardesai abandons opposition parties’ EVM clown car

Rajdeep Sardesai stated that the opposition parties did not cry over EVMs when they had won elections in different states. He added that it has been established that hacking EVMs is not possible and parties should not sow mistrust among the people.

Following the exit poll results, controversial journalist Rajdeep Sardesai, departing from his usual characteristics, criticised the opposition parties for raising the false bogey of ‘EVM malfunctioning and theft’ in an apparent bid to hide their failure. Rajdeep said that the complaint raised by the opposition leaders about EVMs are wrong.

While talking to a journalist on Dilli Tak channel, Rajdeep Sardesai asserted that the complaints regarding the EVMs raised by the opposition leaders are mere allegations that need to be proved. Defending the Election Commission, Rajdeep said that the organisation had already come out clean saying that those EVMs which have been caught in many places across the country were the reserved EVMs which were never used in the Elections.

Rajdeep also slammed the opposition leaders saying, “The opposition leaders should be careful in undermining an organisation just to further their politics. In Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan, they won the elections and the BJP lost it, they didn’t complain about the faulty EVMs.”

However, Rajdeep also added that the Election Commission should be more transparent in their conduct and have at least 50 per cent counting of VVPATs against the Supreme Court verdict which rubbished the request of having 100 per cent VVPATs counted.

It is notable here that Rajdeep’s statement comes when several journalists have been trying to peddle lies and false narratives regarding EVMs, helping political parties further their agenda.

In another video, Rajdeep Sardesai can be seen lauding PM Modi for transforming h Varanasi and the overhaul of the Ghats and cityscape brought about after PM Modi’s election from the Varanasi constituency.

“You have to acknowledge that after PM Modi’s election, Varanasi has turned into a VVIP constituency. Roads leading to airports have become broader, there’s a complete makeover of the Ghats, they are cleaner now. There’s a Cancer Hospital built there, uninterrupted electricity has come to the city. Cleanliness campaign ran by him has struck chords with the people.”

The change in his tune comes amidst severe flak that Rajdeep has been facing from his own colleagues and people for his biased reporting. Recently, Rajdeep was left red-faced when a man asked him what had previous governments did for Kashi.

Even his colleagues, Anjana Om Kashyap and Shweta Singh took sly digs at him recently after he allegedly suggested some of his colleagues are ‘pliant’ journalists to the government. Rajdeep had also reportedly attempted to discredit India Today- exit polls that predicted an overwhelming majority to NDA government.
