He saying they introduced ballot box again, till now we used EVM voting machines

Why did they bring back paper ballots in the 2021 Andhra Pradesh local elections?

It would seem that this is a response to "glitches" in the 2019 LS elections (see a report in the India times)

The advantage of paper voting is that it is very simple and transparent for the voter, and automatically creates a "paper trail". There can be no conspiracy theories about criminals "hacking" a piece of paper.

The disadvantages are that paper voting makes ballot stuffing easy and counting hard.
