Lucknow: A lot of time is left for the Lok Sabha elections, but the parties have started laying out the electoral chess board long ago. These days SP and BSP are competing to prove themselves as the main rivals of BJP. The SP knows that the way the BJP is giving priority to the backward, it will also have a challenge to keep its base vote intact. On the other hand, the BSP supremo is concerned about the minority votes, which were completely shunned in the 2022 assembly elections.
In fact, be it SP or BSP, both want to attract non-BJP votes. If the intention of SP is to repeat the performance of the assembly elections, then the blue camp wants to get its lost vote percentage again. As far as election preparations are concerned, the saffron camp seems to be ahead of its opponents in the matter of ground homework. The BJP is engaged in churning the state both at the government and organizational level. Seeing the way the tours of ministers including Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, both the deputy CMs are going on, one feels that it is election season. Whereas the main political weapon of SP and BSP is social media these days instead of the road. Maya and Akhilesh not only surround the BJP through new tweets, but are also not missing from pulling each other’s legs.
