Lucknow: Counting of votes has started for the Uttar Pradesh Municipal Body Election. The results will be exposed in a few hours. In the body of elections, the biggest credit for the CM Yogi Adityanath is at stake. Clearly, after becoming the BJP government in UP, for the first time, BJP led the Yogi in an election field. On the other hand, this body election is also considered as a semi-final of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. In such a way, the victory of the BJP in UP and its leader Yogi Adityanath, with the overwhelming majority in UP, increases the connotation of victory. Let’s take a look that for the yogi, what are the consequences of winning this body election?
Answer to questions rising on leadership potential
For the first time since the CM Yogi assumed power, BJP was in the electoral fray. In recent times, the opposition has been constantly questioning the leadership capacity of Yogi Adityanath. In such a situation, the results of the body elections will put a stop to the questions raised about the Chief Minister’s leadership capacity. In these elections, if BJP gets the victory, then the CM Yogi will increase the national stature and the Yogi will get prominence in the party’s future plans.
Gujarat Assembly elections will fall
If the BJP does well in UP’s municipal elections, then its impact will be on the Gujarat elections. It is believed that the BJP will be able to display the victory of the body elections in the BJP during the Gujarat elections as a trust in the party. Its direct benefit will be in obtaining voter support.
Semi-finals’ of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections
UP’s body elections are seen as a semi-final of the political expert’s 2019 Lok Sabha election. It is being said that in Uttar Pradesh where the BJP won more than 70 Lok Sabha seats, the results of the body elections will also determine the future of the party. While the results of the body elections were good, the BJP will help it to prove its popularity in the Lok Sabha, while getting a negative result will also get an opportunity for self-discipline.
CM Yogi who has assumed the power of the country’s largest province in terms of population, the municipal election is a mini-referendum. For the BJP coming to power by questioning the claims of the development of Samajwadi Party, this election is being seen as an exam in the public court on their functioning. In the last elections, BJP won 11 out of 13 seats in the mayor’s post. This time, while staying in power on CM Yogi, there will be pressure to repeat not only the last performance but also to do better.
Varanasi and Lucknow will be important
In the election of the BJP, BJP has got all the strength to win many important seats. These seats are chief of Varanasi, Allahabad, Lucknow, Gorakhpur and Mathura Municipal Corporation. On one hand, Home Minister Rajnath Singh has indirectly participated in the election preparations in Lucknow while the Allahabad and Lucknow provinces are the home zones of the two Deputy Chief Ministers. Apart from this, victory in the seat of Gorakhpur is crucial for PM Modi’s reputation on CM and Varanasi seat. If political analysts believe that in such a situation if the BJP is defeated in any of these seats, the opposition parties will broadcast this result as a question of its credibility.
