The Uttar Pradesh Panchayat election results look no less than a livelihood for the Samajwadi Party after the last assembly and general elections were defeated by the BJP. If you look at the trends so far, the SP seems to be performing well across the state. The number of BJP-supported Zilla Panchayat members in the state is high, but SP has made its presence felt by registering its presence in cities like Varanasi, Mathura, Kashi, Ayodhya, Prayagraj, Chitrakoot etc. Political parties had made strategies to win this election by considering the Panchayat election this time as a semifinal of the next year’s assembly elections.
This is the reason that for the first time in the Panchayat elections of Uttar Pradesh, candidates supported by political parties have contested as District Panchayat members. In which the Samajwadi Party also sought votes for its authorized candidates. Earlier in the panchayat elections, many SP leaders were seen simultaneously in the election field. It is worth noting that in the panchayat elections, Mulayam Singh Yadav and his family have succeeded in saving their stronghold. Mulayam’s niece Sandhya Yadav (joined the BJP and contested) also lost the election. The most special thing is that Mulayam Singh Yadav also supported his brother Shivpal Yadav to save the family stronghold. While Shivpal and SP chief Akhilesh Yadav have different paths. In the elections, the Samajwadi Party has been directly seen giving a tough competition to the BJP. Apart from Congress and BSP, independent candidates have also achieved great success in stopping the BJP’s victory chariot.
The government did not meet the expectations of the people
SP spokesman and MLC Sunil Singh Sajan told ‘Hindustan’ that the people of the state had won a lot of BJP in the assembly and general elections. However, the central and Uttar Pradesh governments did not meet the expectations of the people. Therefore, despite applying full force, BJP MPs and MLAs were not able to give victory to the panchayat candidates from their region. SP candidates have won from areas considered strongholds of BJP. God is also angry with the BJP along with the people of the state. In the upcoming assembly elections, the public is going to make SP Akhilesh Yadav the chief minister by winning the SP. People do not want the politics of religion. She wants good roads, school-colleges, hospitals, medical colleges. He claims that the SP is winning at least 50 per cent of the seats.
RLD alliance benefited
In West Uttar Pradesh, the Samajwadi Party has also benefited from the alliance with the Rashtriya Lok Dal. While the BJP has suffered due to the alliance of the two parties, the impact of the peasant movement has also been seen in these elections.
Benefits of Akhilesh’s meetings
SP President Akhilesh Yadav had prepared the election strategy by meeting with party workers in different parts of the state just before the panchayat elections. As a part of this strategy, he had called on the workers to unite and fight the election, whose benefit is also seen on the results of the election.
