New Delhi sources stated that Congress approached the Election Commission (EC) seeking withdrawal of pink ballot papers pasted on EVMs for the Telangana Assembly polls contending that the color was associated with the ruling TRS and voters may get influenced. Meanwhile in its memorandum to the EC, the Congress pleaded for withdrawal of a direction to procure 9 lakh pink ballot papers for the December 7 Assembly elections.



The Congress said in the memorandum "Pink is the official color of the Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS), it is synonymous with the party. Hence the usage of pink colored ballots without doubt, will give the TRS an undue advantage over other contesting parties". It said "The EC is tasked with the conduct of free and fair elections under the Constitution. Party colors are of great significance for representation and its ideologies, inter alia, they also create a bias in the mindset of the voters”.

Moreover the party also pointed out that during the recently concluded Greater Hyderabad Municipal polls, TRS had objected to the proposal of electronic voting machines having a pink button to designate the "NOTA" or "None of the above" category vote, saying their voters would mistake the button "for the TRS and press the NOTA button inadvertently". Congress said "So great is the TRS' association with the color that they acknowledged the electoral harm that any confusion would cause them".
