NEW DELHI: Uttar Pradesh, that is poised to witness a high-octained battle between the ruling BJP and the Samajwadi party-Congress combine will continue its tradition to witness the Lok Sabha elections starting with the western UP- the eipcentre of Jat-Muslim riots and the belt comprising potato and sugarcane farmers.

The phase 1 election starting from April 19 will see voting in eight constituencies: Saharanpur, Kairana, Muzzafarnagar, Bijnor, Nagina, Moradabad, Rampur and Pilibhit

In the phase 1, Kairana, Muzaffarnagar, Rampur and Pilibhit remain the key contests to watch for as Uunion Minister of State (MoS), Sanjeev Balyan is one of the prominent Jat leaders who has made it to Modi cabinet twice, first in 2014 and then 2019.

 

 

One of the other reasons to watch out for this phase is the keenly contested seat of Rampur where in 2019, Azam Khan, the then SP leader had defeated BJP’s star candidate Jaya Pradha even though later he had to vacate the seat following his conviction leading to BJP’s triumph in 2022 bypoll.

Pilibhit, that is represented by a rebel BJP leader Varun Gandhi, is yet to see the announcement for a candidate. It’s not clear if Gandhi will switch to SP, BSP or Congress or not contest elections at all. Gandhi has been criticising his party for a long time now.

 

 

The second phase beginning from April 26 will see voting in Amroha, Meerut, Baghpat, Ghaziabad, Gautam Buddha Nagar, Bulandshahr, Aligarh and Mathura . In 2019, BJP had won seven out of these eight seats. This phase will also see a high-stake battle with all eyes on Amroha where BSP’s 2019 winning candidate Kunwar Danish Ali had won on a BSP ticket on his debut.
