Give us access to the EVMs that will be used in the Gujarat elections for only three hours.

The resolution also called for tallying of votes polled in 25 per cent randomly-selected booths with the paper trail generated by VVPAT machines. "There is no machine in the world which can not be hacked", the AAP MLA claimed.

In a statement, the EC said: "Very simply put, any "lookalike" machine is just a different gadget, which is manifestly designed and made to function in a "tampered" manner and has no relevance, incidence or be-aring on the commission's EVMs".

Bhardwaj, who is an engineering graduate in computer science and worked for Johnson Controls India Pvt Ltd, Gurgaon and Invensys, now Schneider Electric, Hyderabad before he joined AAP, demonstrated on an EVM how a person who poses as a voter and uses secret codes can manipulate the machine's results.

"We have submitted a complaint to the Election Commission about wrong information provided by the AAP with regard to funds its received, and sought derecognition of the party".

Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati had also claimed that the Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) resounding victory in Uttar Pradesh was gained by tampering with 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.

Mishra, who was suspended from AAP's primary membership yesterday, mocked the exercise, saying the party should stop living in "denial" mode and accept the fact that people do not vote for Kejriwal anymore.

Responding to the Election Commission's dismissal of the EVMs being tampered, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday said the former should hereafter provide their own EVMs.

"What they used is a prototype of an EVM, how can they say they have hacked an EVM", said an official from the Election Commission.

The Election Commission has time and again rubbished allegations that EVMs can be programmed to favour any particular party. This can be done by changing motherboard of the the EVM.

Sacked Delhi water minister Kapil Mishra spoke against his party on the EVM tampering issue, accusing Kejriwal of adopting this tactic to shift the people's attention from the corruption charges levelled against him.

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

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