The dreams of the opposition parties have been shattered as the Supreme Court has dismissed PIL seeking 100% matching of VVPAT slips with EVMs during the counting of votes on May 23 for Lok Sabha polls. The Apex Court has made it clear that it can not encourage such petition anymore. Some of the technical experts have approached the Supreme Court earlier and filed the petition on this issue. The top court on May 7 dismissed a review plea filed by 21 Opposition leaders led by Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu seeking that random matching of VVPAT slips with EVMs be increased to 50 percent.
