    Establishing its supremacy in the Uttar Pradesh Assembly Assembly elections 2017, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is all set to form the next government in the state. Riding on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s growing popularity, the BJP won whopping 312 seats in the 403-member Uttar Pradesh assembly, while the Samajwadi Party-Congress alliance is on the second position with 54 seats. Mayawati-led Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) has bagged 19 seats. Election officials said the BJP began taking strong leads right from the start of the counting and it became clear within an hour that it was set to comfortably take power in Uttar Pradesh.

    A euphoric Bharatiya Janata Party called it a “historic” verdict that would make a major impact on Indian politics even as the Congress admitted it was stunned by the scale of the verdict in favour of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.While Samajwadi Party leader and Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav promptly resigned, BSP leader Mayawati attributed the rout to the Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) which she said were manipulated.

    In Uttar Pradesh, the BJP’s success rate enveloped both urban and rural areas and appeared to demolish traditional caste equations. BJP candidates won in all major cities including Lucknow, Allahabad, Kanpur and Varanasi, Modi’s Lok Sabha constituency. While the Congress fared not so badly in Rae Bareli, it took a drubbing in Amethi, Rahul Gandhi’s Lok Sabha seat.

Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections 2017 witnessed intense three way battle between the Samajwadi Party-Congress alliance, the BJP and Mayawati’s BSP. While the SP joined hand with Congress to regain power, the BJP and BSP are trying to wrest power after 15 and five years respectively. Uttar Pradesh Assembly poll is a crucial electoral battle for Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, who is banking on his slogan of ‘Kaam Bolta Hai’ (work speaks), and his alliance partner Congress, which is in dire need of a political resurgence. The election is the first big test of PM Narendra Modi and his BJP after demonetisation drive. For Mayawati’s BSP, the election is like do or die as the party failed to win even a single seat in the 2014 Lok sabha polls. WATCHUttar Pradesh Election Results 2017 LIVE Streaming

The seven phased Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections 2017 saw high-debacle poll campaign with politicians accusing each other for the backwardness of the state, law and order situation and communal divide.

While the BJP banked on the popularity of PM Narendra Modi, the SP-Congress alliance brought Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and Dimple Yadav for campaigning, apart from Akhilesh and Rahul. CATCH – Assembly Election Results 2017 LIVE News Updates

Ahead of the Uttar Pradesh Assembly election results 2017, most of the exit polls predicted hung assembly with the BJP emerging closest to the threshold of 202 seats in the 403-seat assembly. Of the five exit polls by ABP-CSDS, Times Now-VMR, India TV-CVoter, India Today-Axis and MRC, only Axis suggested the BJP getting a clear majority with 265 seats. The rest predicted that the BJP would stay below the 200-mark. The Samajwadi Party-Congress combine is lagging far behind, exit polls forecast on Thursday. The BSP, which was being seen as the proverbial dark horse by a few political analysts, has been projected by all the exit polls as the distant third.
