Neither of the two parties that had volunteered to hack electronic voting machines or EVMs attempted their mission today. Instead, they chose to watch a nearly four-hour long demo by the Election Commission. "NCP, CPM did not participate in EVM challenge," said Chief Election Commissioner Nasim Zaidi. Declaring the Election Commission's EVM challenge a flop show, Arvind Kejriwal's Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), appeared to revise its own programme. The party declared that what was widely reported as its "counter-hackathon" today was only the launch.
