Aam Aadmi Party to hold EVM hackathon on same day as Election Commission’s challenge

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has announced to hold its own hackathon of EVMs or Electronic Voting Machines on the same day as the Election Commission’s all-party challenge that starts June 3. The party has maintained that EVMs can be manipulated in favour of a particular party by using certain codes, and also opted out of the EC challenge after the panel refused to provide it access to the motherboard during the challenge.
