Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad on Tuesday accused the Congress of being behind a press conference cum Electronic Voting Machine (EVM) hackathon organised in London that alleged that the 2014 General Elections were rigged.

A self-styled cyber expert, seeking political asylum in the U.S., on Monday claimed the 2014 general election was “rigged” through the electronic voting machines, which, he said can be hacked.

“We will expose this claim,” Mr Prasad said, adding that the Congress was insulting the 2014 mandate.

Mr. Prasad also raised questions over the presence of former minister and Congress leader Kapil Sibal’s presence at the event. “In what capacity was Kapil Sibal present at the EVM hackathon event? Is the Congress sponsored event designed to defame the popular mandate of the India?” he asked.
