For the first time since the results of the Uttar Pradesh Assembly election were announced on March 10, Akhilesh Yadav, the president of the Samajwadi Party (SP), congratulated the people and claimed that his party had demonstrated that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJPtally )’s could be decreased.
The BJP won 255 seats, bringing its total to 273 seats with its allies, Apna Dal and Nishad Party, while the SP got 111 seats, up from 47 in 2017. The SP’s 125-member coalition currently includes the Rashtriya Lok Dal (8) and the Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party (6).
“We have proved that the BJP seats can be decreased,” Mr. Yadav said in a tweet, thanking voters for boosting the SP’s own tally by two and a half times and vote percentage by one and a half times. The BJP’s decline will continue uninterrupted. More than half of the misunderstanding and misconception has been cleared, with the remainder to follow in a few days. “The fight for the common good will triumph.”
The EVMs were allegedly hacked in order to “steal what was their due mandate,” according to the party. He was only allowed to see his advisors until late in the evening on March 10th. On March 11, he is anticipated to address the media and deliver a detailed announcement about the results.
Mr. Yadav, who is a Lok Sabha Member of Parliament and won the Karhal Assembly seat in recent elections, would have to choose between his Lok Sabha position and his Assembly seat.
