Uttar Pradesh Assembly Election 2017 Results

The results of UP Vidhan Sabha Election 2017 are hard to predict for now because from 4 main parties The Samajwadi Party is internally broken as result of Akhilesh Yadav and his father Mulayam Yadav participating in elections against each other. At other hands former chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, Mayawati and her Bahujan Samaj Party doesn’t stand much chance to be elected this time due to the bad performance in their last term. Mayawati was previously elected as Chief Minister of UP in year of 2017, but she couldn't hold the position and got defeated by Samajwadi Party in 2012. BJP being a central ruling party might grab the place and become ruling party in UP this time. But there are chances that BJP might lose following the recent demonetization movement by Narendra modi, if BJP loses UP, they are most likely to lose in 2019 too.

What are your thoughts, what is your opinion? Do you think that Akhilesh Yadav OR Mayawati stands another chance to become the CM? Will Uttar Pradesh give a chance to BJP to rule the state? Whatever you think, drop your vote below to elect your party.


Who will win UP Assembly Election?

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)
Samajwadi Party (SP)
Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP)
Indian National Congress (INC)
Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD)
Communist Party of India (CPI)
