While addressing a press conference immediately after the stunning win of her party, Mayawati said, "It will be after 14 years that a single party government will be formed in the state.

"I will ensure a society free from corruption, fearlessness, crime and provide development," she asserted. Mayawati confessed that upper caste played a vital role in her victory.
