Tech and Telecom

Shibli Faraz, the Federal Minister of Science and Technology, stated on Friday that the government will reward anyone who hack locally manufactured gadgets with a cash incentive.

The minister told reporters that if any hackers succeed in hacking the EVM, which has become a fresh point of dispute between the government and the opposition, the government will provide a Rs1 million prize.

Faraz said that 400,000 devices were built domestically at a cost of between Rs70,000 and Rs75,000 each unit.

He claimed that the majority of the ECP’s arguments presented in its report to the Senate Standing Committee on Parliamentary Affairs constitute a “charge sheet” against it.

He explained that the EVM makes voting easier, and that the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) should avoid making it a point of contention.
