The chief minister's swipe was aimed not just at Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP but also at SP and BSP who have been raising questions about the electronic voting machines after BJP won a three-fourths majority in the Uttar Pradesh Assembly.

Addressing a meeting of party workers here Adityanath said that in the recently-concluded MCD elections, BJP had
got an overwhelming majority in three districts.

Those who had been raising doubts over the credibility of the EVMs have now realised that they cannot remain in power by simply ignoring the plight of the common people, he said.

"Those who were raising doubts over the EVMs have got a befitting reply. They would now have to admit that EVM stands for 'Every Vote Modi'," said Adityanath, taking a dig.

Referring to the upcoming local bodies elections in Uttar Pradesh, Adityanath said that people have to sensitised about BJP's policies and welfare schemes.

"The overwhelming majority, which the BJP has got in Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections is a result of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's welfare programmes," he said.

The Uttar Pradesh chief minister also mentioned that the state government has implemented its welfare schemes without any discrimination.

"There is a visible improvement in law and order. People of the state are getting electricity. And, the state government is committed to the cause of farmers, women, traders and common citizen," he said.
