UP EVMs were tampered with, claims Mayawati


Lucknow : Terming the UP election results as “very surprising”, Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati on Saturday alleged that voting machines had been “managed” to favour the BJP and that her party has asked the Election Commission to cancel the results in the state and in Uttarakhand.

“These election results are very surprising. It is very difficult to accept them,” said Mayawati, whose Bahujan Samaj Party has fared poorly in the UP and Uttarakhand elections.

“The reports I got have raised the suspicion that the voting machines have been managed… It appears that EVMs have not registered votes cast in favour of other parties, or all the votes have been polled for the BJP,” she alleged. —PTI
