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.

"BJP workers have tried to create a false wave through media,” she said, adding 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 by Election Commission for added security for mosques and temples in eastern UP and accused the Congress of shedding crocodile tears for minorities.
