In 2017 the SP-Congress had formed an alliance
In 2017 there was an alliance of SP and Congress. This time the Samajwadi Party has tied up with several smaller parties, including Jayant Chaudhary’s Rashtriya Lok Dal and Om Prakash Rajbhar’s SubhaSP. At the same time, the ruling BJP has an alliance with Apna Dal Sonelal. BSP and Congress have announced to contest the elections alone.
UP Election 2022 Faces of chief minister
- Yogi Adityanath: The current Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath is the face of the Chief Minister’s post from the BJP alliance. The challenge for the BJP, which fought in 2017 without a chief ministerial face, is to repeat its performance this time. Om Prakash Rajbhar, who was an ally of the BJP in 2017, is now with the Samajwadi Party. In such a situation, the challenge for BJP can increase in Purvanchal. At the same time, it will be a big challenge for the BJP to perform like 2017 in western Uttar Pradesh due to the farmers’ movement.
- Akhilesh Yadav: SP chief Akhilesh Yadav is the chief ministerial face from the opposition side. Akhilesh’s brisk campaign has made him stand out as the biggest face against the BJP. Akhilesh was the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh from 2012 to 2017.
- Mayawati: Mayawati, who has been the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh four times, will be the face of the Chief Minister post from BSP this time too. Mayawati’s party has not started campaigning on a large scale so far. Because of this, questions have been raised on Mayawati’s claim, but the vote bank of BSP always stays with Mayawati. This is the reason why no one makes the mistake of underestimating Mayawati’s claim.
UP Election 2022 big election issues
- Inflation: The opposition parties are constantly raising the issue of inflation. Leaders like Akhilesh, Priyanka are mentioning the prices of petrol-diesel to mustard oil in their public meetings. Voters of many districts had raised the issue of inflation in Amar Ujala’s election chariot, the struggle for power.
- Unemployment: The opposition is continuously raising the issue of unemployment. The issue of lathi charge on unemployed youth is also rising in election rallies. At the same time, BJP is claiming to provide employment opportunities to more than three crore youth. Form leak in recruitment examinations is also a big election issue among the youth.
- Farmers and Fertilizers: How big is the farmer’s issue, it can be gauged from the fact that the Center had to withdraw the new agricultural laws just before the elections. Along with this, fertilizers in many districts
