They flagged the concern a day after an Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA made a "live demonstration" in the Delhi Assembly on how the EVMs could be rigged.

"So, based on the past and this new corruption case, a delegation of the party will go and meet the chief election commissioner at 4 pm to lodge a complaint".

The AAP has raised the pitch about manipulation of EVMs following its drubbing in the recent Punjab and Goa Assembly elections and the Delhi civic polls. On Thursday, hundreds of AAP workers demonstrated outside the EC headquarters in Delhi demanding that voter-verifiable paper audit trail- equipped EVMs be used in future elections. Rao wondered why the EC was "reluctant" to invite those who had filed petitions in the Supreme Court challenging the reliability of EVMs and technical experts to the all-party meeting the poll watchdog had convened on May 12.

Calling for the attention of the public, Bhardwaj said EVM tampering is "real" but to get the common people of India accept the "truth", it might take time but it "must be addressed", he added.

David Wagner wants Huddersfield to make the most of their big chance
Sheffield Wednesday take on Huddersfield at Hillsborough on Wednesday , May 17. "We as players know what we need to do". Danny Ward will likely replace Joel Coleman in goal for Huddersfield after missing the first match through suspension.

During the demonstration, Bharadwaj claimed that EVMs can be tampered with even after a mock test. The EVMs used for polling are with the EC.

Though many parties welcomed the Election Commission's assurance on the use of VVPATs, but AAP was adamant on its demand of Hackathon.

"They informed the Election Commission that they received only Rs 6 crore donation in 2013-14", he alleged. Last month, sixteen opposition parties had urged the Election Commission to revert to the paper ballot system saying that the alleged tampering has created trust deficit in the credibility of the EVMs. In this context it should be understood that it is possible for anyone to make any electronic gadget which "looks-like" ECI EVM and demonstrate any Magic or Tampering.

Speaking to Odisha Television Ltd on the sidelines of the meeting, Pinaki said that BJD never joined the Congress or other opposition parties when they approached the President of India on the issue of EVM tampering.

The AAP also contended that it could show how EVM motherboards can be changed in 90 seconds. It was a prototype that the AAP legislator, Saurabh Bhardwaj, "tampered with" inside the House.

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.

Tankha, Chairman of the Legal and Human Rights Department of the Congress, said going back to the paper ballot could also be a solution. "With this demonstration, it has been proved that EVMs can actually be hacked".
