Can't vilify EVMs by hacking a look-alike machine — EC to AAP

From the Aam Aadmi Party, Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia, MLA Saurabh Bhardwaj and minister Gopal Mohan will attend the meeting, reports CNN-News18 Political Editor Sumit Pande.

V. Maitreyan of the AIADMK's Panneerselvam camp said his group is convinced with the EVM security.

"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.

The EC also asserted that the 2019 Lok Sabha elections would take place in the VVPAT format. The party had used an EMV prototype to make the demonstration.

"The first question is whether EVMs can be tampered". We will also urge the EC to probe the entire accounts of the AAP.

"Before voting day candidates are fooled into believing that the machines are fine".

Amid concerns raised by the opposition, the Union Cabinet last month cleared the Election Commission's proposal to buy VVPAT machines for the EVMs to ensure transparency in the voting process. If people and parties are satisfied, your system will be accepted.

"Where they all visited, why they went, what did they do and from whose money did they do all these things?" "Paper trail machines should be installed".

Tankha, Chairman of the Legal and Human Rights Department of the Congress, said going back to the paper ballot could also be a solution. In Pune municipal elections votes counted were not matching the votes polled. The party has blamed "EVM tampering" for its recent electoral losses. "As far as the EVMs are concerned, these allegations or irregularities should be settled once and for all". At the very end of the hearing, Sibal told the court that Congress party would also intervene in the matter. "In case of dispute, Paper ballots should be considered", he added. Today it has been proved that EVMs can be tempered.

In April 2017, the debate over the possibility of tampering of EVMs echoed in the Supreme Court as well which made a decision to examine the allegations that these machines were not "foolproof" without a paper trail. "They must give access to EVMs to techies to prove their point". 7 seconds are not enough.

"They again lied in 2014-15, as in their affidavit to IT department they claimed that they only received Rs 65.52 crore as donation, while on their website it was mentioned that they received Rs 27.48 crore".

It will offer an opportunity to political parties to demonstrate that EVM used in recent elections were tampered with or that the machines can be tampered with even under strict technical and administrative safeguards as applicable during elections, Zaidi said.

It has sent status paper on EVMs and VVPAT to all the seven national and 48 state political parties.

"EVM manipulation is a real possibility and should be looked into immediately", said R K Gupta, an AAP worker who had come from Dwarka in southwest Delhi to the poll panel's central Delhi headquarters. The EVMs used for polling are with the EC.

The Union Cabinet had given its nod to sanctioned funds of almost 3200 crore rupees to procure more than 16 lakh VVPATs as sought by the EC.

On Tuesday, AAP leader and a computer engineer, Saurabh Bharadwaj, gave a demonstration in the special Assembly session on how easily EVM's can be tampered with.

Asked why they thought EVMs could be rigged, the protesters, many of whom carried replicas of EVM machines, mostly cited Bhardwaj's live demonstration in the assembly.

AAP says it will take part in the EC's meet and tells the EC to fix the date and time and will hack the EVMs again.
