AAP demonstrates how EVMs can be hacked; BJP says drama

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

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday dared the Election Commission to give EVMs to the AAP which he said will change their motherboards in 90 seconds. The code, he claimed, can be fed into a machine while casting vote.

Earlier, the discussion was introduced by Chandni Chowk MLA Alka Lamba, who said the BJP had itself raised concerns over EVMs in 2009 when the Congress had won the Lok Sabha polls.

Bhardwaj, who has ten years of experience working with embedded systems, was chosen to demonstrate how EVM tampering is possible as the Election Commission (EC) has always maintained that these machines can not be tampered with during an actual election process due to the many safeguards in place. He also reset the EVM to demonstrate how the same machines which pass the mock test on a polling day can be manipulated during the voting process.

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

The AAP leader said the EC's inquiry report into allegations of EVM tampering in the assembly elections held this year had not explained anything.

Bhardwaj, who represents the Greater Kailash constituency, claimed that in his capacity as an engineer, he had extensively worked in this area and was aware of how the machines can be fiddled with.

Delhi Metro hikes fares
Metro fares were last revised in 2009 when the minimum tariff was raised from Rs6 to Rs 8 and the maximum fare from Rs22 to Rs30. DMRC has announced special discounts to commuters on Sundays and national holidays with the maximum fare reduced to Rs 40.

"I will show you how the machines on which the faith of democracy rests can be tampered with".

Soon after a demonstration of the EVM tampering was conducted by Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Saurabh Bharadwaj during the special day-long session of the Delhi Assembly here on Tuesday, Kejriwal alleged tampering of EVMs poses a real "threat" to the country.

"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. "In 90 seconds the motherboard can be changed", he said.

"If they have doubts regarding EVMs those can be put before the Election Commission of India on Friday, instead of wasting precious time of the assembly, convened at an enormous cost to the exchequer".

"First, tell me the reason we lost?" It flayed Kejriwal for not replying to the corruption charges.
