Kolkata: NOTA to appear as a ‘cross’ symbol in the forthcoming Assembly elections, ordered Supreme Court. The court orders have reached every district. EVM machines will have the word NOTA written in Bengali.
Supreme Court had ordered last Loksabha elections to start the ‘None of the above’ option. If the voter doesn’t like none of the above candidates, he or she can press the NOTA button. Till date only the option with NOTA written on it and a button was present, but from the current Assembly elections a cross symbol will be there.
