New Delhi: Congress leader Digvijaya Singh today stated that the Electronic Voting Machine (EVMs) can be pre-tampered so there is no need for hacking.

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?”
