Delhi Labour Minister and AAP leader Gopal Rai said they would put forward their three demands in front of the EC.

"So far there have been 37 cases in various courts regarding EVM tampering".

"Why is it that all the technical defects in EVMs that have come to light recently, say in Bhind or Dholpur, favoured only the BJP?"

However, the poll body has been maintaining that EVMs are tamper proof and can not be manipulated.

Social media also picked up AAP's protest against the EVM tampering.

"Reacting to the demonstration, the poll panel said the machine used to conduct live demonstration was a "look-alike" which was made to function in a 'tampered" manner.

The meeting comes days after the Aam Admi Party staged a demonstration on hacking a "voting machine" in the Delhi Assembly.

AAP MLA and computer engineer Saurabh Bhardwaj carried out the demonstration, insisting that the BJP has been gaining due to EVM rigging.

The AAP has raised the pitch about manipulation of EVMs following its drubbing in the recent Punjab and Goa Assembly elections and the Delhi civic polls. Using an EVM prototype, Saurabh Bhardwaj, the AAP MLA, had claimed that anyone aware of a "secret code" could tamper with the machine by feeding the code into it at the time of casting vote."EVMs can be tampered with in several ways".

Election commission had brusquely rejected AAP's allegations of faulty EVMS.

The all-party meeting convened by the Election Commission to discuss reliability of EVMs today saw a debate over the definition of "hacking". The EC has said that they will think about our demands in the all party meeting.

He said EVMs do not enjoy their trust any more.

Meeting started with inaugural address by Election Commission of India.

The VVPAT-equipped EVMs dispense paper slips which help voters confirm that their vote has indeed gone to the candidate of their choice.

Tankha, Chairman of the Legal and Human Rights Department of the Congress, said going back to the paper ballot could also be a solution. "And based on the string of irregularities being exposed, we will also ask the EC to derecognise the party", Tiwari said.

The special sessions held by the AAP government for "political purposes" are against the constitutional propriety as they incur expenditure of a significant sum from the public exchequer, he added. "Paper trail machines should be installed. So, every election from now on has to have VVPATs", Karat told IANS.

"EC has announced that all future elections will be held by VVPAT.If people and parties are satisfied, your system will be accepted". Under the EC's supervision, give us these EVMs.
