UP Final Results: BJP's Return, Good Edge To SP!
It was thought that the opposition parties' electoral strategy on unemployment, inflation, education, and health in the UP elections would pay off, but the outcome seemed to devastate everyone. In practically every rally, Samajwadi Party Chief Akhilesh Yadav was heard saying, "This election is the last battle of democracy; after this, the people will have to revolutionise for change." Attempts to polarise the Bharatiya Janata Party's top workers, Yogi Adityanath (CM), Narendra Modi, Amit Shah, Rajnath Singh, and other key leaders, on the other hand, were successful. The election results show that Yogi Adityanath's 80-20 policy overshadowed the Samajwadi Party's unemployment, inflation, education, and health strategies. Uttar Pradesh Election Results The Bharatiya Janata Party won fewer seats in Uttar Pradesh than in the last assembly elections, but its vote share rose. In the 2017 elections, the BJP received 39.67% of the vote, but in 2022, the party's vote share increased to 41.3 percent, a 1.7 percent increase over the previous election. In comparison, the BJP's seats decreased. The BJP, for example, won 312 seats in the 2017 elections, an increase of 265 seats over 2012. However, the party has won 255 seats and lost 57 seats in the 2022 elections. Despite the fact that the Samajwadi Party was defeated in the elections, the party's vote share and seats grew in comparison to the previous elections. In the 2017 elections, for example, the party received 21.82 percent of the vote but only 47 seats, a 177-seat loss from 2012. In the 2022 elections, the SP's vote share climbed by 10.3% to 32.1 percent, and the party won 111 seats while also gaining 64. Despite Mayawati's quiet, it was assumed that the Bahujan Samaj Party would be the deciding factor in this election, which turned out to be a disaster. The BSP retained its typical 22.2 percent vote share in the recent assembly elections, but its vote share has dropped 10% to 12.9 percent presently. In the 2017 elections, the BSP won 19 seats after losing 61 seats in 2012. In the 2022 elections, the BSP's vote share fell, and the party was reduced to one seat. Despite winning two seats, the Congress party received a substantially smaller vote share than the BSP. For example, the Congress received 2.3 percent of the vote in this election, which is nearly 4% lower than in 2017, and the party's representation in the UP parliament has decreased from seven to two MLAs. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has stated that this victory will pave the way for the 2024 elections, but political analyst Prashant Kishor disagrees.
Battle for India will be fought and decided in 2024 & not in any state #elections— Prashant Kishor (@PrashantKishor) March 11, 2022
Saheb knows this! Hence this clever attempt to create frenzy around state results to establish a decisive psychological advantage over opposition.
Don’t fall or be part of this false narrative.
