The BSP supremo appealed the voters to re-elect Samajwadi Party candidate Dimple Yadav by pressing the 'cycle' poll button. Mayawati also urged the voters to ensure transfer of votes to BSP candidates fielded elsewhere as joint nominees of the alliance to ensure a clean sweep by the Samajwadi Party-Bahujan Samaj Party alliance in Uttar Pradesh.
