UP Civic polls: Opposition alleges tampering of EVMs

Uttar Pradesh Civic Polls: Akhilesh Yadav blames EVM tampering for civic poll debacle

According to a statement, the party said the BJP won 14 out of 16 contests for mayor as the voting was done through EVMs, while the party had won fewer seats for other posts where the voting was by ballot paper.

Senior SP leader and former UP minister Azam Khan also sang the same tunes and said there "EVM setting" as where ever ballots papers were used, Samajwadi party won and BJP lost.

"If the BJP claims that they enjoy the mandate of the people, and the entire country is with them, then they should set aside the EVMs and hold the elections through ballot paper".

The victory of Bahujan Samaj Party on two mayoral seats in the civic elections has brought the political spotlight back on the much anticipated anti-BJP grand alliance ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. If the BJP believes people are with them, they must implement it.

The Congress also compared the performance of the ruling party where elections were held through EVMs with those where ballot papers were used.

Another birdie at number 11 had him six-under for the day before he three-putted the par-three 12th hole for his first bogey of the round.

In the polls for the 5,261 seats in the members of the Nagar Palika Parishad, BJP has won 917 seats (or only 17.5%) followed by the SP (476), BSP (260) and Congress (154).

The official break-up of the Uttar Pradesh elections confirmed the figures viral on the social media since early morning showing the BJP's poor show in all polls, except those of mayors, conducted through ballot papers.

"SP was voted out of power only eight months ago and the civic poll outcome has shown that the party is on a decline. But in this election, many seats have gone to independent candidates", he said.

Mayawati alleged that in the urban local body polls the government machinery was "misused".

What could worry the BJP is also the fact that these results have come after a 50-rally campaign by chief minister Yogi Adityanath, while on the other side no one equal to his stature like Mayawati or Akhilesh Yadav campaigned. Of the 198 Chairmen of the Nagar Palika Parishad seats, BJP has won 69 (or 34%) while 45 have been won by the SP, 29 by the BSP and 9 by the Congress. They (BJP) have spoken about only half of the actual results.... The victory has also been rendered bitter by serious allegations of bungling in voter lists and manipulation of EVM's.
