Addressing a gathering on the occasion of 126th birth anniversary of Dr BR Ambedkar in Lucknow on Friday, Mayawati said, "The BJP has always ditched and misled Dalits for its political gains". When Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and Samajwadi Party (SP) won in Uttar Pradesh, there was no issue with EVM.

Oddly, however, Anand has been given the number two position in the party on condition that he will never become an MP, MLA or the Chief Minister.

Mr. Yadav said he had welcomed the idea of an alliance even before the election results.

"I met lots of party workers and supporters, who told me that they were bewildered over the victory of BJP, as many of them had pressed the button against SP symbol", he said, adding that people had lost faith in EVMs. Mayawati has announced that her brother will take care of party affairs in Delhi when she is away. The Dalit leader accused the ruling party of tampering EVMs during the recent Uttar Pradesh assembly elections 2017.
