Maya must accept the people’s mandate: M Venkaiah Naidu

The BJP on Wednesday ridiculed BSP chief Mayawati for her EVM tampering allegation and told her to accept the people’s mandate “gracefully.” “When you win, EVMs are right. When you lose, EVMs are wrong. This shows that there are some defects in you (Mayawati),” Union Minister M Venkaiah told reporters. Naidu said that EVMs are under the control of the Election Commission (EC). “You should gracefully accept the people’s mandate. People’s have rejected you (BSP),” Naidu said.

Uttar Pradesh BJP chief Keshav Prasad Maurya said “Mayawati should get herself treated by some good doctor”. “When Mayawati and SP leader Akhilesh Yadav had won the elections, the EVMs were okay but when the BJP won, EVMs are not okay,” he added. Hitting out at Mayawati, Union minister Kalraj Mishra attributed her “outburst” over EVMs to “frustration” stemming from the BSP’s defeat in the assembly polls.

    EVM machines were perfect even in Goa and Manipur. But why then BJP accept defeat and allow Congress to form govt. Everytime, BJP tells lies in front of public standing near Parliament. If BJP can not accept defeat in Goa and Manipur, they resort to horse-trading and change the number. Venkaiah Naidu is Amar Singh or what - a liar?

      Only criticise opposition party through out - in and out of parliament - and when EVM machines work perfect , go and tamper the result of Goa and Manipur by doiing some foul game and horse-trading.
