The party, which has been crying foul over the use of EVMs in the recently-concluded Lok Sabha polls, said on Monday that their agenda for the protest was – “No to EVMs, Yes to paper ballots.”

TMC chief and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had earlier raised questions over the EVMs used in the polls and urged opposition parties to demand the return of ballot papers unitedly.

The TMC supremo said that a fact-finding committee should be constituted to find out the details about the EVMs used in the recent polls.
