Finding it difficult to come to terms with the massive drubbing it got in the UP Assembly polls, BSP supremo Mayawati today said that her party will observe ‘black day’ on the 11th of every month.

Mayawati reiterated her charge that the BJP won UP elections by tampering with the Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs).

She also said that the BJP leaders were giving examples of their not so good performances in Punjab, Manipur and Goa because they wanted to hide their crime in UP.

"The BJP tampered with the EVMs and to hide their crime they are saying in social media as to why didn't they win in Punjab, Manipur and Goa if they tampered with the machines,” Mayawati said.

“They didn't pay attention to Punjab because they didn't have a very good relation with the Akalis. And if they have not done anything then why are they giving clarifications via the media? Why are they saying that they have not done any tempering?" she said while addressing her party workers here.

She also wondered as to how the BJP got more votes in even Muslim-dominated areas, adding that it only corroborated her charge of EVM tampering by the saffron party.

"Most votes in Muslim and Dalit majority constituencies have gone to the BJP; this makes it evident that voting machines were manipulated. Either the EVMs did not accept votes other than BJP or the votes of other parties have gone to the BJP in the EVMs," Mayawati said.
