The AAP MLA also claimed the party can hack all EVMs, to be used in the Gujarat Assembly polls, within three hours and can ensure the BJP does not win even a single booth, let alone a seat.

The Election Commission of India has, however, dismissed the EVM claims.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Tuesday used a special sitting of the Delhi assembly to "expose" how electronic voting machines (EVMs) can be tampered with through a live demonstration, which was carried out by MLA and software engineer Saurabh Bhardwaj. EC sources on Tuesday too said an ECI-EVM is one which remains in the security zone of ECI.

Mr Bhardwaj, using a dummy EVM, alleged that on the polling a six-digit secret code could be fed to manipulate a machine wh-ile casting vote.

Using what his party claimed was a "prototype EVM" developed by "a group of IITians", Bhardwaj, himself an engineer, showed how it could be tampered with to favour a particular candidate.

Criticising the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) the AAP earlier today gave a full demonstration on how EVMs can be rigged.

"There are gross discrepancies in the figures AAP submitted to the EC, the Income Tax department, and what it put on its website", Tiwari said.

"In run up to the Assembly elections, they (AAP) had promised to install 15 lakh CCTV cameras across the city".

The BJP lawmakers demanded the Speaker to allow discussion on corruption charges levelled by sacked minister Kapil Mishra on chief minister Arvind Kejriwal and health minister Satyendra Jain.

After a string of electotral reverses, including the recent ones in Goa, Punjab and the latest in Delhi municipal elections, the AAP has been insisting on scrapping EVMs and going back to ballot papers. AAP lost deposit in Rajouri ByElection where VVPAT plus paper-trail was used. His deputy Manish Sisodia claimed th-at the democracy is in danger and urged rivals to look beyond the theory of "your machine vs my machine". "In 90 seconds the motherboard can be changed", he said.

He said in his tweet that by raising these issues Kejriwal was trying to divert public attention from both governance-failure and corruption.

"Back to same rhetoric instead of apologising to the people for corruption".

Though the light flashes against the button which is pressed by the voter, the vote may not necessarily go to that party, said Bhardwaj.
