Addressing a rally at Nagpur, Mayawati said, "If BJP thinks that they are honest and transparent then they should conduct all the upcoming elections in the country with ballot paper instead of EVM."
She said that the BJP's silence on the issue showed that EVMs had irregularities in elections that were conducted in various parts of India since 2014.
Further attacking the BJP and the RSS, Mayawati said that dalits, tribals, OBCs and minorities were facing castiest, religious and communal attitude from the so-calledthekedars (custodians)of the Hindu religion.
"It was due this attitude that Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar along with lakhs of his followers had to embrace Buddhism. He was not against Hinduism but he was against the inequality meted out," Mayawati said.
Asking her party cadre to be ready for polls, Mayawati said that the BJP would start constructing the Ram Mandir just before the Lok Sabha elections to hide their administrative failure at the state and Centre.
She added that the BJP would play the "nationalism" card as well to garner votes.
