On Sunday, TDP chief and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu said that his technology advisor Hari Prasad Vemuru was a whistle-blower but not a thief. His presence in TDP’s delegation to the EC was objected to by the poll panel.
In 2010, Hari said that he had shown how EVMs could be hacked but a theft case was booked against him.
He said, “I have no idea on the status of the 8-year-old case. I felt insulted..the whole world knows why I showed EVM hacking on television.”
