Weeks after the Election Commission announced a day-long hackathon of Electronic Voting Machines, the Aam Aadmi Party on Thursday declared that it too would come up with a similar challenge. Addressing a presser in New Delhi, engineer-turned politician, Saurabh Bhardwaj, criticised the Election Commission for disallowing the option to open EVMs during it’s upcoming hackathon.

The Election Commission is ready to provide. EVMs, but will not allow them to be opened. It has challenged hackers to use a combination of buttons to tamper with EVMs.

Terming the Centre’s move to demonetise high-denomination currency notes as an act of ‘financial terrorism’, senior AAP leader Dilip Pandey blamed the much-debated decision for a recent dip in economic growth. He also demanded that the Centre bring out a white paper, listing out all facts on demonetisation, that have heretofore been kept away from public domain.
