AAP Shows How EVM ' Vote Rigging' Works

Criticising the BJP over the EVM tampering row, the AAP on Tuesday staged a "live demonstration" of alleged EVM manipulation in the Delhi Assembly.

India's Election Commission defended the integrity of its electronic voting machines (EVMs) after a political party "demonstrated" how they can be manipulated to rig poll results.

"Although use of VVPAT (voter verifiable paper audit trail system) with EVMs will ensure total credibility and transparency and put to rest all controversy, the Commission will, after today's meeting, hold a challenge", he added.

"Why is it that all the technical defects in EVMs that have come to light recently, say in Bhind or Dholpur, favoured only the BJP?"

"They said EVM tampering is not possible".

Trump denies that he requested Comey end investigation into Flynn
Trump's presidency appears hijacked by the US obsession with Russian Federation , one senior Kremlin official said. Trump called his meeting with Santos "productive", as he said future meetings will be.


The poll panel will try to assure parties that the EVMs can not be hacked in any manner.

The resolution also exhorts the EC to give access to tech-enthusiasts from time to time so that the vulnerability of EVMs is tested by experts.

Amid the bribery allegations against Kejriwal, the Aam Aadmi Party fielded its legislator Saurabh Bharadwaj in a day's special assembly session to prove a point.

The Election Commission, on the other hand, reiterated that the EVMs used by it were tamperproof.

"They informed the Election Commission that they received only Rs 6 crore donation in 2013-14", he alleged. In this context it should be understood that it is possible for anyone to make any electronic gadget which "looks-like" ECI EVM and demonstrate any Magic or Tampering. At the day-long meeting, which started with the opening remarks of Chief Election Commission Nasim Zaidi, the Commission was expected to seek views of political parties on the proposed challenge it plans to throw to hack its EVMs.

The AAP and Congress had demanded polling through ballot papers for last month's Delhi MCD polls but the the Delhi State Election Commission said EVMs were "completely safe". On Tuesday, AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal had claimed that any EVM's motherboard could be replaced in 90 seconds. "We are not in favor of EVM that is what we are asking the introduction of ballot papers", Roy said.

Citing a news report by CNN-News18 channel, he said: "CNN-News18 in its report showed discrepancies in the donations that AAP received".

The Election Commission today is convening an all-party meeting over the issue of EVM and other electoral reforms in the national capital.

He also filed three complaints with the CBI against Kejriwal, Jain and AAP leaders who allegedly misused party funds on foreign trips.

The EC rejected AAP's EVM tampering claim, saying the "look-alike" gadget demonstrated in the assembly was not its machine. "Paper trail machines should be installed".
