Heaval Over EVMs In Delhi Assembly

Aam Aadmi Party MLA Saurabh Bhardwaj on Tuesday demonstrated EVM tampering process in the Delhi assembly.

"We can hack EVMs across Delhi in three days", Sisodia boisterously said during a special session of the Delhi Assembly. "We only need to change the motherboard", CM Arvind Kejriwal said.

The "demonstration" on EVMs wont attract legal action as legislators enjoy legal immunity inside House.

Delhi BJP president Manoj Tiwari on Tuesday demanded that the Election Commission of India derecognise the Aam Admi Party for allegedly providing "wrong information" to various authorities about donations received by it.

On Sunday, Kapil Mishra had alleged that Kejriwal took two crore rupees from health minister Satyendra Jain against whom the CBI is probing a case of money laundering.

"It is common sense that gadgets other than ECI-EVMs can be programmed to perform in a pre-determined way", the EC's statement said. This can be done by changing motherboard of the the EVM. The resolution also called for tallying of votes in 25 per cent randomly-selected booths with the paper trail generated by VVPAT machines.

He also clarified that the test is being conducted on a machine "similar" to an EVM and not an original EVM.

"EVM manipulation is a very serious issue". It is unsafe for the democracy and the country, and people should raise their voice against it.




"All doubts regarding EVM could have been put before ECI on 12th May", said Maken.

Bhardwaj said he has seen it happen all over the country that votes cast for different parties end up going to the BJP alone.

Earlier the AAP leader, Bharadwaj said that there are secret codes that can be used to decide on the day of voting which candidate can win He showed how easy it is to hack EVMs and it is being done on a massive scale.

"What they (AAP) used is a prototype..."

The Election Commission has been claiming that EVMs are tamper-proof and had challenged that it be proven otherwise by parties making allegations about rigging. "But I want to tell that EVM manipulation is a bitter truth which sooner or later have to be accepted", he said.
