Kejriwal offers to prove EVMs are not tamper-proof

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Monday pushed the decibel level against Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) further with Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal challenging the Election Commission to give him 72 hours to prove that EVMs can be tampered with.

Demanding that the EC should make public the EVM software, the AAP chief said a team of experts could “read and rewrite” the software of EVMs in 72 hours in the presence of its officers and in front of camera.

“It’s a challenge to ECI; give us 72 hours and we will prove EVM (software) can be read and rewritten...We demand that the EC release the EVMs so that it is open to scrutiny, we will investigate...People are asking what is the point of standing in queue when the EVMs are tampered...EC must come out clean on sanctity of EVMs,” he said.

Addressing a press conference a day after the EC rebutted AAP's claims that EVMs used in the recent Punjab Assembly elections were tampered with, he also demanded that the upcoming municipal polls be conducted with paper ballots. It is "globally known" that the machines can be tampered with, he added.

This has raised questions about all elections. Why is it that all EVMs are coming from Uttar Pradesh.
