BJP national secretary and the party’s co-incharge for Delhi, Tarun Chugh, today hit out at Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for the “live demonstration” on how EVMs can be programmed to favour any political party.
“Giving a live demonstration of electronic voting machines (EVMs) in Delhi by AAP is a disgraceful and irresponsible act,” Chugh said in a statement issued here.
During a day-long special sitting of the Delhi Assembly today, AAP MLA Saurabh Bhardwaj put on a “live demonstration” on how EVMs can be programmed to favour any political party.
Stating that the post of chief minister is a constitutional post, Chugh accused Kejriwal of “hatching a conspiracy” to defame the country’s electoral process. Chugh demanded a probe to find out from which company the EVM was procured by the AAP for the “live demonstration” and the Election Commission should take action in this regard.
Bhardwaj claimed that a voting machine could be manipulated by simply feeding it a “secret code”.
