Echoing Mayawati's remarks, Akhilesh Yadav said, "BJP says a total of 16 elections have been held in UP, out of which 14 were won by BJP, 2 by BSP & Congress-SP disappeared". Indicating EVM tampering in the Uttar Pradesh Civic Elections 2017, the former Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh claimed that the "faulty EVMs" are responsible for his party's debacle in civic polls in UP and mentioned that similar thing had happened during Assembly polls.

They cited how the BJP had won 14 of 16 posts of the Mayor where the polls were conducted with EVMs, but fared miserably in all other civic elections conducted with the ballot paper. "And, I can say with full confidence that if the 2019 Lok Sabha polls are held using ballot paper, they (the BJP) will not come to power", Ms Mayawati claimed.

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

Meanwhile, after the triumph in ULB elections, the state BJP has chose to focus on elections to the co-operative societies and by-poll to Sikandra Assembly seat (Kanpur Dehat).

"SP was voted out of power only eight months ago and the civic poll outcome has shown that the party is on a decline". "Otherwise, more of our candidates would had become mayors in the state.and we would have won more seats", she said.

Counting of votes of all 652 Urban Local Bodies is being held at 334 centers in Uttar Pradesh and full results are expected by evening. The party performed well despite Mayawati's absence from campaigning.

In its first outing in the U.P. municipality polls, the AAP won two posts of chairperson of municipal council and over 40 seats in different local bodies. This is barely 28 per cent, which is less than the passing percentage of 33. State BJP chief Mahendra Nath Pandey said, opposition parties were indulging in propaganda only to hide their disappointment following the electoral losses. The same were used in 2007 Assembly elections where the BSP emerged victorious and formed the government on its own. He said that the electorate of the state gave a befitting reply to the baseless allegations levelled by opposition parties.
