Casting his vote at a polling booth in Barabanki, Congress leader PL Punia said the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) knows it is weakened and losing.
Hence, the party brought Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah for poll campaigns, he said.
Voters will not get lured as they have decided to make the BJP lose, he added.
Earlier, Congress leader Pramod Tiwari had blamed the BJP for “mafiawad” in UP.
“In 1996 when BJP-SP formed the government, 21 ministers were mafias, had a criminal background,” Tiwari said.
