UP result will end politics of caste, dynasty politics: Amit Shah

New Delhi, Mar 11 (IANS): Happy over the sweeping BJP win, party President Amit Shah on Saturday said the results will end the politics of "caste, dynasty politics and appeasement".

"This victory will change the course of Indian politics in the coming days. It will end the politics of casteism, parivaarvaad and appeasement," the Bharatiya Janata Party leader told the media here.

"Voters of Uttar Pradesh have rejected the politcs of casteism, of family one-upmanship and appeasement. They have voted for performance-based politics and governance," Shah added.

He said he was glad that people gave such a massive mandate to the BJP to the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi after independence.

The BJP will form government in Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Manipur and Goa, Amit Shah said, terming it a victory of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's leadership.

"Even opposition will have to accept Narendra Modi who has emerged as the most popular leader post independence," Shah said.

"In four states we are going to form government, we have lost Punjab but we have got more than 30 percent votes," he said.

"The historic mandate given to Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in all five states will give a new direction to Indian polity," Shah said.


Amit Shah refuses to comment on Mayawati's allegations

BJP chief Amit Shah on Saturday refused to comment on the allegation made by BSP chief Mayawati that Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) were "managed" to favour his party's win.

"I can understand the mental condition of Mayawati. But I will not comment on her remarks," Shah said when asked about the allegations.

Terming the Uttar Pradesh election results as "very surprising", the Bahujan Samaj Party chief on Saturday had alleged that EVMs were "managed" to favour the Bharatiya Janata Party.

She also said that her party has asked the Election Commission to cancel the results in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand.
