BSP Supremo Mayawati on Wednesday dismissed any ‘Modi wave’ in the country saying it is a media hype and that the saffron party has even managed “astrologers” who are propagating such ideas. After casting her vote here, Mayawati said, “The country is in a mood for change. They want a good government at the centre, which works in the interest of people and the country”.
“The talk about the wave, especially the comments of BJP’s Prime Ministerial candidate, that there is a BJP wave, is present only in media and opinion polls. Now they have even managed astrologers who are building such an air. I do not see any such wave on the ground,” she said. The former Chief Minister of the state said she would appeal that people must caste their votes.
“People from dalit and other backward classes must exercise their franchise, which they have got as a result of the long and arduous struggle by Dr Baba Saheb Ambedkar,” she said.

Congress candidate and sitting MLA Rita Bahuguna Joshi also dismissed presence of any BJP wave or polarisation. Joshi who is facing BJP ‘s national President Rajnath Singh from here said Lucknow is a city of broad-minded working class which does not get swayed by such propaganda.
“It is a very interesting election here. Lucknow has always sprung surprises. The election here is a direct contest between Congress and BJP while the parties will be left behind. There is no wave in Lucknow,” she said.
The election result will depend on the performance of the candidates and their experience, former UPCC President said. “There is no polarisation in Lucknow. Lucknow is a secular city. People here have given importance to candidate.
It is a middle class city, working class city, so don’t expect it to polarise,” she told reporters.
