Bring it on says Kejriwal to ECI's EVM Hackathon challenge

"With this demonstration, it has been proved that EVMs can actually be hacked", Bhardwaj claimed.

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

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

The session was utilised by AAP legislator Saurabh Bharadwaj who sought to demonstrate how an EVM can be tampered with to rig poll results.

Earlier, Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad during a debate had urged not to use EVMs in the civic polls of Delhi, assembly polls in Gujarat and other states.

The Aam Aadmi Party ran a demonstration of how secret codes could be used to hijack an Electronic Voting Machine but critics have been quick to point out that this was a test on a simulated machine, not a genuine EVM.

He did not name the BJP but provided enough hints to insinuate that the Bharatiya Janata Party was the beneficiary of the supposed tampering.

Malviya Nagar MLA Somnath Bharti said the tampering of EVMs was "the biggest fraud on democracy", adding that the Delhi State Election Commission could have postponed the municipal polls in order to implement voter-verifiable paper audit trail (VVPAT), but chose not to. "An ordinary engineer like me with just 10-15 days of hard work can tamper with them to ensure that votes go only to one desired party or candidate", said Bhardwaj, who also told the Assembly that he had a B.Tech degree in computer science and that he had worked on microprocessors and micro-controllers.

"The Speaker then called in marshals to throw out BJP MLA Vijender Gupta for creating ruckus".

The Election Commission on Tuesday said the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) demonstrated in Delhi Assembly on prototype Electronic Voting Machine (EVM) and not on Election Commission of India EVMs, ANI said quoting sources said.

He, however, avoided answers on the bribery charges made against him by Mishra.

Accusing that the AAP is diverting attention from the "real" issues by holding a demonstration on EVM tampering in the assembly, Maken said if we don't trust independent body like election commission, nothing is left in the country.

"How easily it is possible". This is not your machine versus my machine, but the concern is that the democracy is in danger today.

Kejriwal has repeatedly claimed that the AAP's poll debacles have something to do with tampering of EVMs. "In 90 seconds the motherboard can be changed", he said.

The AAP, which termed Mishra's allegations as "baseless", suspended him from the party's primary membership at the Political Affairs Committee (PAC) meeting on Monday.
