Syed Shuja, a cyber expert living in the US, claimed that electronic voting machines (EVMs) were hacked in the 2014 general elections in India. Shuja has been a member of the team who designed the EVMs of India. Shuja organized a press conference in London on Monday and kept many things related to EVM hacking.
Syed Shuja kept his talk through video conferencing. In this press conference organized in London, Congress leader Kapil Sibal was also present.
Cyber Expert Shuja has claimed that EVMs have been tampered with in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections. Shuja made a shocking claim that former Union Minister Gopinath Munde was killed not in an accident but because he knew about EVM hacking. Shuja has alleged that telecom company Reliance helped hacking EVM’s for BJP. Cyber Expert Shuja claims that Gauri Lankesh was also murdered because she was about to make news on EVM hacking. Shuja has besieged several parties besides BJP and said that Samajwadi Party, Bahujan Samaj Party and Aam Aadmi Party are also involved in EVM hacking.
Syed Shuja said in the press conference that the Aam Aadmi Party had met him and demanded Demo to EVM hacking but he rejected this demand. Regarding Reliance Communication, Shuja said that this company has a network for data transmittance and the BJP has got the benefit of it. According to Shuja, “There are 9 centers in India which transmit data. Employees do not know what they are doing. They know that they are doing data entry.”
Shuja claims that if the people were not aware then BJP would have easily won in Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan. He said that data transmission was stopped in the Delhi assembly elections of 2015, when AAP won 67 seats in 70, otherwise the BJP would win all the seats.
Shuja says that many parties approached him and tried to know how EVM can be hacked. These parties also include SP, BSP and Aam Aadmi Party. According to Shuja, “SP-BSP came to us and wanted to know what could happen in hacking. We met the Congress and assured the help. The Aam Aadmi Party wanted to know the method of hacking because it wanted to show it to the world.
Shuja said that Gopinath Munde was murdered because he knew about hacking. Shuja claims that his team was about to get meet BJP leaders in Hyderabad but they thought that they would blackmail them by knowing about EVMs. Shuja claimed that when his team was going to meet BJP leaders in a suburban area of Hyderabad, his team was fired at but they were saved. Shuja also said that a riot was also carried out in Kishangarh in Hyderabad to cover the firing.
