BJP only party to win two consecutive terms in UP; secures majority with higher vote share

| @indiablooms | 10 Mar 2022, 06:04 pm

Lucknow: BJP led by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath is heading towards a massive victory in the UP assembly polls and has crossed the 260 mark, becoming the first party since 1985 to return to power in Uttar Pradesh for two consecutive terms.

The BJP has garnered 44.6 percent of the vote - a significant 5 percent improvement over the 2017 elections.

Uttar Pradesh has 80 parliamentary seats and holds the key to form the Centre and could offer clues to the national mood before the 2024 general election.

The state is home to nearly a fifth of India's 135 crore population, UP elects the maximum number of legislators to the parliament than any state.

The Samajwadi Party was being considered the biggest rival of the BJP in Uttar Pradesh, had formed diverse alliances with smaller regional parties expecting to boost its prospects with Muslim-Yadav support base with voters from the Other Backward Classes.
