Earlier the AAP leader, Bharadwaj said that there are secret codes that can be used to decide on the day of voting which candidate can win He showed how easy it is to hack EVMs and it is being done on a massive scale.

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.

Bharadwaj brought an EVM prototype used by the Election Commission and claimed how codes embedded inside can be used to manipulate results.

Maken in his first meeting with councillors and party workers who were newly elected, discussed that the Congress will continue to oppose the Delhi government on its policies and programmes.

The Election Commission, which maintains that EVMs can not be programmed to favour any party, did not officially react. He also reset the EVM to demonstrate how the same machines which pass the mock test on a polling day can be manipulated during the voting process.

Before Bhardwaj's demonstration, Kejriwal tweeted, "Saurabh Bhardwaj will reveal the truth behind a big conspiracy in the country".

After MLA Saurabh Bharadwaj demonstrated the ways to rig the EVM, the Assembly passed a resolution urging President Pranab Mukherjee and the Election Commission to ensure that future elections be held with paper trail equipped EVMs. The saffron party's Delhi unit chief Manoj Tiwari, at a press conference here, alleged that there were "gross discrepancies" in the figures of donation amount shown by the AAP in its affidavits, party website, and what it has declared to the EC.

The Election Commission of India has, however, dismissed the EVM claims. "There is no machine in the world which can not be hacked", the AAP MLA claimed.

On his part, Mishra, who was suspended from AAP's primary membership yesterday, mocked it saying the party should stop living in "denial" and accept the fact that people do not vote for Kejriwal anymore. "We, even in power, raised this issue, because it is not about three or five years, but about democracy", he further said.

"Kejriwal has been rattled by the bribe charge made against him by his sacked water minister Kapil Mishra, and the special session of the assembly seemed to have been convened to divert the attention of the people from the corruption charges against him", he said. "In 90 seconds the motherboard can be changed". It flayed Kejriwal for not replying to the corruption charges. This is not your machine versus my machine, but the concern is that the democracy is in danger today.
