This comes in the background of the widespread apprehensions about EVMs. CPI(M) General Secretary Sitaram Yechury has written a letter to the Chief Election Commissioner and demanded among other things that in elections in Tripura EVMs with Voter-Verified Paper Audit Trail (VVPAT) should be used.

Both the statements were made almost a month after the Una incident. RSS's seriousness is also evident from the fact that, along with condemnation, it added that the Prime Minister should have not called 80 percent Gau Rakshaks fake.
