After the Aam Aadmi Party MLA Saurabh Bhardwaj’s demonstration on ways to rig Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) in Delhi Assembly, the Election Commission on Tuesday rejected AAP’s EVM tampering claims by saying look-alike gadget is not its machine.

During a day-long special sitting of the Delhi Assembly today, AAP MLA Saurabh Bhardwaj put on a “live demonstration” on how electronic voting machines can be programmed to favour any political party.

“He (Bhardwaj) showed how easy it is to hack EVMs and it is being done on a massive scale. It is dangerous for the democracy and the country, and people should raise their voice against it.

“The ECI can give us its machines, we will show how to hack it in 90 seconds by merely changing its motherboard,” Kejriwal told reporters outside the assembly.

Bhardwaj claimed that a voting machine can be manipulated by simply feeding it with a “secret code”.
