An all-party meeting conducted by the Election Commission of India to discuss the reliability of the electronic voting machines (EVMs) got under way in New Delhi today.
After a couple of days, the Commission will allow claimants to prove that EVMs can be tampered with. The date of the challenge would be decided after the all-party meeting.
All the seven national and 35 State recognised political parties are attending the meeting.
A detailed presentation on the features of EVM’s security was made by Commission officials. This proved that the machines are tamper-proof.
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) presented a ‘demonstration” in the Delhi Assembly on hacking a ‘voting machine’. An ”EVM prototype” has been for the demonstration. But the Commission rejected the AAP’s claim.
