Mayawati-Akhilesh’s bet on politics board.

Lucknow: Even before the formal conglomeration of the Lok Sabha elections in 2019 , all the parties have already announced an electoral turnaround. Just ahead of the Lok Sabha elections, the stir in the state of Uttar Pradesh has increased and now all are preparing to make a claim on the political board. Mayawati and Akhilesh Yadav to make political names in UP Has strongly shocked the Congress General Secretary’s movements at the national level and has made an informal announcement of the BSP-SP combine in UP. Indeed, today in Lucknow, SP chief Akhilesh and BSP will hold a shared press conference at Mayawati Taj Hotel and formal announcement about SP-BSP alliance. However, even before this, there has been talk of pulling the seats in the alliance with the alliance in UP. The SP-BSP may have taken the National Lok Dal with them, but RLD is unhappy with the sharing of seats. RLD chief Ajit Singh has said that his party is part of the SP-BSP general body, but till now the seats have not been discussed.
Ajit Singh said that SP and BSP will decide whether to keep it in the alliance in the wake of the Lok Sabha elections in relation to Congress. However, sources say that RLD has demanded 5 seats from the SP-BSP combine, while SP-BSP is ready to give three seats to RLD. Actually, the five seats RLD has demanded are Hathras, Carana, Baghpat, Muzaffarnagar and Karaana. However, the seats have not yet been fully agreed upon. In fact, two days prior to finalizing the talks on seats, Jayant Chaudhary went to Lucknow to meet Akhilesh Yadav. There Akhilesh Yadav has assured him about seats. Jayant Chaudhary will not be present in the press conference of Bahrahel, Akhilesh Yadav and Mayawati’s public press conference on Saturday. Tell us that Akhilesh Yadav and Mywathi will hold a shared press conference at Taj Hotel in Lucknow on Saturday and formal announcement of the general body will be announced.
However, there is a discussion among political corridors that these two big parties of Uttar Pradesh, ie SP-BSP will fight together in 37-37 Lok Sabha seats. Let us state that Uttar Pradesh has a total of 80 Lok Sabha seats. Discussion in the political circles of UP is also on the fact that seats in Amethi and Rae Bareli will be left in the BSP-SP alliance and no candidate will be left there. After this, the seats remaining are left for the national Lok Dal and other smaller parties. That is to say that the alliance between SP and BSP is proved right, it means that Congress will not be part of this alliance and SP will try to connect the other regional parties of UP. In this way, if the SP-BSP combines, then the Congress will be a big setback. At the same time, there will be no shortage for BJP either.
The SP-BSP combine is not only a Congress but also a headache for the BJP. To understand the shock for the BJP along with the Congress, it will be necessary to look into the vote share of Lok Sabha elections 2014. In fact, even though the BSP could not get a single seat in 2014, its vote percentage was close to the SP. 2014 Lok Sabha election Bharatiya Janata Party emerged as the largest party and it surprised all by winning 71 out of 80 seats. The BJP, which won 71 seats at that time, had recorded a record 42 percent of the votes. At the same time, Samajwadi Party’s account had 5 seats with about 22 percent votes. Mayawati’s BSP did not get a single seat in 2014, but she had about 20 percent of the votes. At the same time, the Congress had won seats of Rae Bareli and Amethi and had secured about 7 percent of the vote share.
The news is that before the formal announcement of Mayawati and Akhilesh Yadav’s SP-BSP, the UP Congress team will also hold a marathon in Delhi and will discuss the strategy ahead. Congress will also discuss future strategies in the wake of BSP-SP alliance and will include Raj Babbar and PL Punia.
In the Assembly elections where BJP got 39.6% votes, SP and BSP got 22%. Joining both votes gets 44 percent. Congress got only 6 percent of the votes. At the same time, talk about the Lok Sabha elections 2014 BJP got 42.6% of the votes in Uttar Pradesh. SP got 22 percent and BSP got 20 percent votes. However, there are reports that after January 15, the sharing of seats can be finalized.
