Lucknow: Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati Friday said the media was trying to create a "false wave" in favour of BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi.
Addressing a press conference in the state capital, the former UP chief minister said that Modi had cast his spell on the media, which was trying to create a "false wave" in his favour.
"Bhajpayiyon ne media ke through ek nakli hawa banane ki koshish ki hai," she said and went on to add that even some "astrologers of fame had been managed to create a wave in favour of the BJP".
She also alleged that both the Samajwadi Party (SP) and BJP were trying to polarize the electorate on caste and community lines.
She sought the intervention of the Election Commission (EC) for added security for mosques and temples in eastern UP and accused the Congress of shedding crocodile tears for minorities.
