UP civic poll results: BJP sweep confined to big cities

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

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

Uttar Pradesh Congress has accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of trying to misguide the public by projecting a distorted fact about their victory in the Urban Local Bodies polls. "The BJP's performance on EVMs and ballot papers is different", claimed senior Congress leader Pradeep Mathur.

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. Giving the results figure, Singh said that out of the total 198 results declared for Nagar Palika chairman, BJP won 68 and lost 125 while for Nagar Palika Parishad member, BJP just won 914 seats and lost 4303 seats. "BJP has won only 15% seats in ballot paper areas and 46% in EVM areas", Yadav tweeted. The Samajwadi Party (SP) won 202 seats, while the BSP and Congress bagged 147 and 110 seats, respectively.

SP leader Rajendra Chaudhary said that the BJP's claim of sweeping the urban local bodies polls was "far from true".

When that happens, "Make sure to update your Macs and MacBooks at your earliest opportunity after it is released", he added. Wired's report explains that users are having to reboot their Mac in order for the security patch to stick.

The BJP won 14 of the 16 mayoral seats in the recently held Uttar Pradesh civic elections. "The results haven't been out yet and they have already started making excuses for their defeat". "But, it lost most of the seats where election was held using ballot paper".

Meanwhile, after the triumph in ULB elections, the state BJP has made a decision to focus on elections to the co-operative societies and by-poll to Sikandra Assembly seat (Kanpur Dehat). Mr Singh said in a statement.

The BJP, however, termed the allegations as baseless and eyewash. Party MLC Rajpal Kashyap said, "It was disheartening to note that the BJP gained on places where EVMs were used".

Later that evening, Casimar Naiboa, father of victim Anthony Naiboa, said he and his family finally got a chance to meet Walker. Hoffas mother, Olga Lavandeira, communicated through sign language that she was happy Walker stepped forward.

UP BJP chief Mahendra Nath Pandey said opposition parties were indulging in propaganda only to hide their disappointment following the electoral losses. Mayawati-led BSP came second by winning the mayoral posts in western UP's Aligarh and Meerut towns. "And it was because of the EVMs that Mayawati came to power in 2007 in UP, while Akhilesh emerged victorious in 2012". He claimed that people will again give a befitting reply to Opposition parties in 2019 Lok Sabha elections.

"Misusing the official government machinery is actually part of the SP, BSP and Congress culture".
