Uttar Pradesh’s 11 seats, BSP supremo Mayawati has announced to contest the elections alone. Unaware of the announcement of Mayawati, Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav has said that I do not know about it. Former CM Akhilesh Yadav was addressing a rally of workers in Azamgarh. When asked about the decision of BSP supremo Mayawati in the media, he said, “I do not know this, I am in Azamgarh”. Significantly, on Monday, Mayawati said in her party leaders’ meeting that SP’s Yadava Votes had not been transferred to BSP, even so, Akhilesh Yadav could not win his wife, Dimple Yadav. That is why the party has decided that he will fight alone in the by-elections in 11 Vidhan Sabha seats in the state. This statement of BSP Supremo is like an informal declaration of breaking the alliance in a way. BSP leader Sukhdev Rajbhar said that the BSP chief said, the results of the SP-BSP coalition are not satisfactory. Both have faced defeat. How to correct it now I respect Akhilesh Yadav ji. They should also consider whether people of their communities support or not.
On the other hand, Samajwadi Party legislator Hariom Yadav has said that Mayawati has benefited from the alliance and the Samajwadi Party suffered huge losses. Had there been no coalition, Mayawati could not get a single seat and SP got at least 25 seats. The Yadav community voted for one, but their vote went to the BJP. Overall it can be assumed that Mayawati is no longer in the mood of a coalition with the SP. The BSP does not usually contest the by-election. Mayawati asked party leaders to create a list of candidates for the 11 assembly seats by-elections. This by-election will be due to the selection of these legislators for the Lok Sabha. Nine MLAs of BJP have won Lok Sabha elections, while each MLA of BSP and SP has been elected to the Lok Sabha. The BSP has won 10 Lok Sabha seats in Uttar Pradesh. The party contested 38 seats.
On the other hand, the Samajwadi Party had contested 37 seats, and the party could win only five seats. The National Lok Dal attacked three places and could not win a single seat. Meanwhile, State BSP president RS Kushwaha told reporters that EVMs are mainly responsible for the BSP’s poor performance in Lok Sabha elections.
