Earlier this week, MLA Saurabh gave a live demonstration in the Delhi assembly to prove that EVMs can be rigged. After which the party announced that senior leaders will lead a protest rally ‘Save Democracy Movement’ in front of the Election Commission office in Central Delhi around 11 AM Thursday, reported news agency PTI. “The Commission in its response said we used a dummy and not an actual machine in yesterday’s demonstration. We request the EC to arrange a hackathon. We will show how its own machines can be rigged,” said senior AAP leader Gopal Rai in a press conference on Wednesday.

Reacting to the incident, the Bharatiya Janata Party said that session used by AAP for demonstrating how to rig EVMs was nothing more than a “blatant misuse of a constitutional institution” by the AAP to promote its own political agenda at the cost of public exchequer. “Huge amount of money was spent on the special session which was not required to be called for such an exercise. The LG should order recovery of this amount from the AAP as the exercise was nothing more than blatant misuse of a constitutional institution,” said BJP MLA Manjinder Singh Sirsa in a letter that he wrote to LG Anil Baijal, reported PTI.
