Woman claims she voted for Samajwadi Party but vote automatically went to BJP

Suspicion is rife that this incident in Uttar Pradesh's Lakhimpur Kheri is not a Voter-Verifiable Paper Audit Trail (VVPAT) machine error but a conspiracy to manipulate the voting process.

A voter in Uttar Pradesh state's Lakhimpur Kheri on Monday alleged that the Voter-Verifiable Paper Audit Trail (VVPAT) machine issued a slip of a different party than the one she voted for. The woman claimed that she voted for the Samajwadi Party, but the slip from the VVPAT machine showed the symbol of the Bharatiya Janata Party.

This incident has raised concerns about the integrity of the electoral process and sparked a debate on the reliability of electronic voting machines (EVMs) and VVPATs in India. The woman's allegations have been met with skepticism by some, who argue that human error or misunderstanding could be responsible for the discrepancy. 

The Samajwadi Party has demanded a thorough investigation into the matter and has called for action to be taken against those responsible for any tampering with the electoral process.
