BJP looks favorite Into UP Elections
The pick pattern of the minority community unbroken ever-changing within the seven-phase election in state, giving rise to the speculation that BJP [Narendra Modi] could manage to ace and find the magic figure within the Assembly on its own.
Had the minority community stayed en masse, as was wide witnessed within the initial 2 phases, the story may are completely different. It but seems that the community yielded to the clarion decision of Mayawati and a sizeable chunk of the vote swung in favour of the BSP, thereby moistening the prospects of the SP-Congress alliance.
This was apparent within the over dozen seats wherever Mukhtar Ansari, together with his fictitious character image, calls the shots. In Mau, the most contenders seemed to be the BJP alliance versus the BSP.
At a specific booth in Ambedkar Nagar, 2 first-time voters from the Muslim community, of a similar family, selected to vote otherwise. The community appeared to be selecting between the SP-Congress alliance and therefore the BSP to defeat the BJP. a similar resulted in reverse consolidation.
In fact, reverse consolidation was witnessed from the second section onward. The BJP probably gauged true and therefore the rhetoric of shamshaan versus kabristaan, Ram mandir and closure of machine-driven slaughter homes was engineered up throughout the terminal phases of the poll.
The BSP big enchilada too took the chance to campaign solidly for the party, every time reiterating that her party was coming back to power with a thumping majority. Earlier, she had minced no words in declaring that the party had given the best variety of tickets to the minority community.
This looks to be operating in favour of the BJP as a tug-of-war between the SP-Congress alliance and therefore the BSP for minority votes created a divide, that interprets to smart gains for the BJP. The exercise successively helped the BJP select a rainbow coalition, which can even be the winning formula for the party in UP.
