Unhappy with Election Commission’s rejection of her claims, BSP supremo Mayawati has said that she plans to move court in the next couple of days, so as to take up the matter of Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) tampering.
Mayawati, on March 11 had alleged that during UP’s Assembly elections EVMs were tampered with and that there was no way that Muslim voters could have voted for BJP.

She had further demanded that UP elections be conducted again and this time via ballot paper as BJP have only won elections by rigging electronic voting machines.
Her claims though were rejected by the Election Commission of India who said her demand for a re-poll using ballot papers was legally untenable.
The BSP have only managed to win 19 seats in this elections as compared to 80 seats they had last time around.
Shocked by the result Mayawati had thus alleged that a large-scale tampering had taken place in these elections.
Meanwhile, BJP had swept the house by winning 325 of the 403 seats and stormed back into power after a wait of 15 years.
They had also accused Mayawati of being a sore loser after her statements.
