The drama around the UP elections was mainly due to the banter between Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led Bhartiya Janata Party and Samajwadi Party’s Akhilesh Yadav. The war between the two political giants has created a stir in the media and Akhilesh Yadav’s position in Samajwadi Party and the fight for his logo, the bicycle, is a different story altogether.
Samajwadi Party has been backed by the Indian National Congress, and Rahul Gandhi and Akhilesh Yadav have been seen as the new best friends at various rallies during the elections in Uttar Pradesh. Mayawati, who has been the star campaigner of Bahujan Samaj Party has also addressed numerous rallies and given her best in the battle of the throne. The verbal spats between the parties are still fresh. Uttar Pradesh elections have also given some controversial arguments between Samajwadi Party’s Akhilesh Yadav and Prime Minister Narendra Modi of BJP.
Various predictions are already being made on the UP Elections results, even before the exit poll results are announced. Senior journalists, Prannoy Roy and Rajdeep Sardesai, have been swearing by BJP’s victory in the state. However, former NDTV journalist, Barkha Dutt did not root for BJP even though she agreed that BJP would get a higher share of votes compared to the 2012 UP elections and the percentage of SP will reduce.
