While New Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had announced that a 'conspiracy' in the country would be exposed in the Delhi Assembly on Tuesday, a member of the AAP Saurabh Bharadwaj gave a live demonstration of how EVMs were being rigged.
NDTV quoted Bharadwaj as saying, "There is no machine in the world that can't be rigged. The next election is in Gujarat...give us the EVMs for just three hours...and I challenge that you (BJP) will not win even a single seat."
Bharadwaj, who was a software engineer, while claiming the codes could be used to get votes for only one party, said that finally he had been able to use his degree for figuring out how EVM machines were being rigged.
According The Indian Express, Bharadwaj said that EVM machines could be easily manipulated by using a codes, and that there were different codes for every party on the panel on the machine. He said that anyone who was aware of the codes could manipulate the machine into declaring a result in favour of anyone on the panel.
Meanwhile, Kapil Mishra, who has been suspended from AAP, mocked these claims saying, tomorrow AAP will allege that there is something wrong with the fingers of voters:

Earlier in the day, the only BJP MLA in the Delhi Assembly, Vijendra Gupta, was marshalled out when he claimed there was widespread corruption in AAP and that Kejriwal and Satyendra Jain were involved in it, and that the claims about EVM machines being tampered was all a hogwash.
"We demand that Satyendra Jain be removed. Even the chief minister is involved in taking money. There are seven cases against him," Gupta said.
"I wanted to discuss this issue in the assembly, but I was marshalled out. Do you not believe in democracy?" Gupta asked Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.
