AAP 'Demonstrates EVM Tampering' in Delhi Assembly

Sisodia also challenged the Election Commission to allow at least three AAP workers in place of those who service EVMs at store rooms and said they will "completely hack" all machines.

Responding to the Election Commission's dismissal of the EVMs being tampered with, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said the former should provide their own EVMs.

This comes after AAP MLA Saurabh Bharadwaj earlier in the day at a special session of the Delhi Assembly demonstrated how EVMs can be manipulated.

Bhardwaj demonstrated the process of EVM tampering and took a dig at BJP, saying that they left engineering because of the saffron party and compelled to return to engineering because of them.

The Election Commission denied his claim that EVMs can be programmed to favour any particular party.

Claiming that it was possible to hack the machines, Sisodia said EVM-tampering tantamounts to a "conspiracy to murder democracy".

Jakarta's Christian governor sentenced to 2 years in jail for blasphemy
A top Christian politician in the world's largest Muslim nation has been jailed for making supposedly blasphemous comments. Purnama lost a re-election bid in last month's gubernatorial election to a Muslim candidate, Anies Baswedan.

AAP MLA and computer engineer Saurabh Bhardwaj carried out the demonstration, insisting that the BJP has been gaining due to EVM rigging.

"We have submitted a complaint to the Election Commission about wrong information provided by the AAP with regard to funds its received, and sought derecognition of the party". Give AAP the EVMs.

"We have said that EC should give us an EVM".

"There are secret codes that can be used to decide on the day of voting which candidate can win".

The house concluded by passing a resolution urging the president and the election commission to endorse VVPAT in all EVMs. Further it said that the tampering allegations must be proven with a real machine.

He said in his tweet that by raising these issues Kejriwal was trying to divert public attention from both governance-failure and corruption.

"It is common-sense that gadgets other than EC-EVMs can be programmed to perform in a pre-determined way, but it simply cannot be implied that the EC-EVMs will behave in the same manner because they are technically secured and function under an elaborate administrative and security protocol", the poll-panel said in a statement.

"All it takes to rig an EVM is to change the motherboard".

Sacked Delhi water minister Kapil Mishra spoke against his party on the EVM tampering issue, accusing Kejriwal of adopting this tactic to shift the people's attention from the corruption charges levelled against him.

"(EVM tampering) is risky for democracy and the country.

She said that Opposition parties had raised concerns with the Delhi State Election Commission ahead of the municipal corporations elections in Delhi last month, where the BJP won 181 and the AAP 40 of 270 wards.
