Today Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party held a 1 hour demonstration to prove the claim that EVMs can be hacked in a one day special Delhi Assembly session. The Aam Aadmi Party was cryptic about where it got the machine that is used in Delhi Assembly today, it's illegal to have custody of the gadgets that are used in elections.
In the end of the May there will be a participation will be held in hackathon, if the party dares, as per the source at the powerful Election Commission, which has been accused by Arvind Kejriwal of colluding to help the BJP score one win after another. Who asked not to be named as the sources, implied that the machine today used for the exhibit was not the real thing and that when confronted with a genuine Voting Machine, for the machine to be gamed is been proven wrong by the Arvind Kejriwal’s party.
In the Delhi Assembly presenting its lengthy show and tell, the Aam Aadmi Party has sought cover in protection from prosecution, for the legal action of statements made or the actions taken in legislature the leader says it cannot be faced.
On Friday the Election Commission has called a meeting at Delhi headquarters to address the complaints about voting machines made by not only Arvind Kejriwal but also the Congress party and regional players like Mamata Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress.
In the February election Arvind Kejriwal was failed to secure Punjab despite a high-energy and length campaign, blamed the rigged machines by Arvind Kejriwal. The Election Commission has resolutely held that the processes it follows guarantee that the machines cannot be manipulated, but other parties echoed Arvind Kejriwal. In the accusation the Congress party was selective, omitting any mention of Punjab where it won the election, in the state it lost alleging the Machine-tampering.
Few weeks ago the Election Commission sources said that a hackathon would be held in the first week of May, then revised the plan for the end of the month, but have still to make a formal announcement confirming the dates and arrangements for the exercise that will allow techies and representatives of political parties to attempt fixing the machines.
