The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) today demanded that an all-party committee be formed under the aegis of the Election Commission (EC) and be given access to electronic voting machines (EVM) used in the recent elections in the country.
The party, which claims that EVMs can be manipulated, also sought to drum up support for its campaign through a demonstration outside the EC headquarters, a day before a scheduled all-party meeting with the commission on the issue.
AAP MLA Saurabh Bhardwaj, who had hacked an EVM replica on the floor of the Delhi Assembly on May 9, told a press conference that the question was no longer if EVMs could be manipulated, but whether the recent polls could have been rigged.
The AAP fared poorly in the polls, which were largely won by the Bharatiya Janata Party.
“We will request the EC to form a committee and put representatives of all political parties and even the EC on it. Our expert team will show the committee how voting machines were rigged,” Bhardwaj said.
