Accusing the Congress of organising the EVM hackathon in London, Union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad on Tuesday alleged that the grand old party had insulted the mandate of 2014 general elections.

During the London EVM hackathon, an Indian cyber expert claimed that the electronic voting machines can be hacked and alleged that the 2014 general election was "rigged" through the EVMs.

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

Addressing a press conference in London via Skype, the man, identified as Syed Shuja, said he fled India in 2014 because he felt threatened in the country after the killing of some of his team members.
