Opposition SP, BSP and Congress campaigns were on comparatively low key.

Some other political parties, including, Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), Congress and Samajwadi Party (SP) were low profile.

"The Congress' loss is such that the BJP won all the municipal corporation seats even in (Congress vice president) Rahul baba's (Gandhi's) Amethi constituency", he said, adding, "Whatever has happened in Uttar Pradesh today is nothing compared to what is going to happen in Gujarat on December 18". Across Western UP, we found Muslims have voted for the Samajwadi Party like in Bijnore. He dismissed charges of electronic vote machine (EVM) tampering as baseless.

BJP chief Amit Shah said that it was clear that the people had embraced the economic reforms and rejected politics of caste, appeasement and dynasty. "They continued to support SP leader Azam Khan", said a BJP MP. This was the first time that BSP contested UP civic polls on its poll symbol - elephant.

This is being seen as a desperate attempt by BSP supreme Mayawati to stay relevant in the state, which she has ruled four times.
