EVMs can be pre-tampered, says Digvijaya Singh

The Election Commission, he tweeted, was "limiting objections to EVM to hacking. It must allow examination of possibility of software tampering at the stage of writing it from server.

"There is a strong possibility of tampering coding at the stage of writing software i.e. EVM can be pre-tampered. So no need for hacking," he said.

"EC must devise a way of supervision by political parties at the (time) of coding software to EVM. Like it does at subsequent stages. Would they?"

Meanwhile, former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Akhilesh Yadav on Saturday said that he had heard the voters pressed on the symbol of the Samajwadi Party, but the votes went into the Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) basket.
