    EVMs can be hacked, says Elon Musk; not in India counters ex-IT minister

    Electronic voting machines (EVMs) were once again in focus with Elon Musk, the multi-billionaire founder of Tesla and SpaceX, and former Union minister Rajeev Chandrasekhar engaging in a debate on X after Musk suggested eliminating the machines following reports of EVM irregularities in Puerto Ricos primary elections. Chandrasekhar, a former MoS for electronics and IT, strongly disagreed with Musk and said it was a "huge sweeping generalisation" that held no truth for the EVMs used in India which are standalone systems not connected to the internet.
