New DelhiI: Addressing the media for the first time after her defeat in the UP polls, BSP chief Mayawati on Wednesday said that her government did bring about significant changes in the state.

The veils may have been taken off her statues following orders from the Election Commission but BSP supremo Mayawati and her party found themselves "draped" in defeat on Tuesday. The BSP, which had captured power in the 2007 by winning 206 seats, was handed a comprehensive defeat this time. The BSP's tally declined sharply to 80. Analysts attribute corruption, worsening law and order situation, her inaccessibility and the absence of her much-talked-about "social engineering" as reasons for her defeat. Mayawati was voted to power mainly because the people wanted to get rid of "goonda raj", say political observers here. "The elephant will trample the criminals" was the slogan coined by her party then. A few years later, the people of the state found "goondas" in the BSP fold. For more info log on to: youtube.com
