Uttar Pradesh (UP) Elections 2017 Result Summary

The biggest win in the assembly elections of 2017 unfolded in Uttar Pradesh. The BJP recorded a historic victory in Uttar Pradesh winning 290 seats in the house of 403.

The Congress-Samajwadi Party alliance could not even touch a three figure mark and managed only 52 seats. In one of the worst performance at the hustings in UP, Bahujan Samajwadi Party secured victory in 18 seats.

The results have far surpassed the predictions made by the Exit polls earlier which though had predicted a BJP win but said that the party would fall short of half way mark. This indeed has been the effect of the prime minister's charisma who campaigned extensively in the state and fought the combined opposition of SP, Congress and BSP. The BJP had not declared its chief ministerial candidate. Mayawati has attributed her failure to the rigging of EVMs and asked for a re-poll through traditional paper ballot. The chief minister of the state is likely to be announced soon.

Uttar Pradesh (UP) Assembly Elections 2017

The elections in the Uttar Pradesh have reached its logical conclusion. The BJP which got historic mandate in the state and won 325 seats without declaring its chief ministerial candidate finally decided upon its chief minister for the state. Yogi Adityanath is the new chief minister of Uttar Pradesh. He was sworn in as the chief minister on 19th of March. He took oath of office along with 46 ministers. Keshav Prasad Maurya, the BJP UP chief and Dinesh Sharma would be two deputy chief ministers of Uttar Pradesh.

Yogi Adityanath, a Maths graduate, is one of the youngest chief ministers at 44. Yogi Adityanath was earlier known as Ajay Singh Bisht. He was born in a Garhwali Rajput family on 5 June 1972 in the village of Panchur, in Pauri Garhwal district of Uttarakhand. He joined Gorakhnath Math at the age of 24 and later became politically active, taking up Hindu issues. He was often branded by the BJP as fringe element of the party.
Yogi Aditynath is five times MP from Gorakhpur and a firebrand leader who is known for his extreme right position. He was also instrumental in 'Love Jihad' and 'Ghar Wapsi' campaigns. However, in his first ever press conference he has said that his government would not discriminate and development would be its sole agenda.

The UP election results have been the biggest shocker of Assembly election results 2107. BJP has won the election so convincingly and with so many margins as it there was no opposition to it. Even the leaders of the BJP did not dream of such a victory which by all means is historic. All the credit for the win goes to the Prime Minister Modi who single handedly fought the election and BJP did not even declare its chief ministerial candidate.

The election results of Uttar Pradesh for 2017 show the continuation of a trend of voting a party to form the government with full majority by giving it a clear mandate. It happened in 2007 when Mayawati formed the government, it happened again in 2012 when Akhilesh Yadav became the chief minister of UP by Yadav and Muslim votes.

It was politics of revenge people wanted to teach Mulayam Singh Yadav a lesson in 2007 for the lawlessness in the state and Mayawati for her corrupt regime. But the new governments did nothing on that count instead pampered their own voters. In both these cases the respective governments closely identified with their vote bank, Mayawati with the Dalits and Samajwadi Party with Yadav's and Muslims. This led to alienation of other sections and the results are for everyone to see.

The elections in the biggest state of the country Uttar Pradesh were held from February 11, 2017 to March 8, in seven phases. To begin with, it was a triangular contest that turned into a clean sweep by the BJP. Akhilesh Yadav forged an electoral alliance with the Congress, ostensibly "to keep the communal forces at bay". Rahul Gandhi and Akhilesh Yadav together held several road shows and Akhilesh criticized the BJP for false promises and demonetization.
