      Kejriwal - Paper ballots ka paisa kon tera baap dega?lt;br/gt;Forget about money, that to will be another bunch of paper.lt;br/gt;Who will replenish total trees wasted on the foolish demand?lt;br/gt;If digital = EVMs are insecure, why are you all the time barking on Twitter, isn't twitter unsafe and accounts can be hacked all the time?lt;br/gt;Is that insecurity the reason behind not providing "FREE WIFI" to Delhi Junta that you promised from roof tops?

              It looks Kejriwal has no confidence winning MCD elections. Whether EVM or paper Dehlites know they have to correct their mistake of electing AAP.

                  The people of India must also launch a campaign against EVMs.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt; It is possible that they are being hacked. In the land of the White Tiger anything and everything happens. None other than the GS of BJP and Mr Advani had pointed this out in 2009.
