Lucknow, For the upcoming assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh, the Samajwadi Party has once again started trying to get power by adopting the alliance formula. SP chief Akhilesh Yadav is constantly engaged in presenting himself big by forming alliances with smaller parties. However, in the past experiences of SP, the alliance has not been very favorable for them. Samajwadi Party National President Akhilesh Yadav is trying to strengthen the knots of alliance with parties from Purvanchal to western UP to keep the caste and regional equations right. He has joined hands with Omprakash Rajbhar’s party Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party (SUBHSP) in Purvanchal. Akhilesh has also seen his strength by rallying with him in Ghazipur.
His party is also preparing to join shoulders with the Rashtriya Lok Dal, which has come into the limelight due to the opposition to three new agricultural laws. is being told. The formula has been set. Announcement is also likely to happen soon. But how much the atmosphere has changed after the law was withdrawn by the government. It will depend on the condition and direction of the peasant movement. The Aam Aadmi Party, which is in power in Delhi, had tried to take the lead by raising the issue of free electricity in UP. But these days he seems to be on the path of becoming an ally of SP.
Apna Dal Kameravadi President Krishna Patel is also in the SP’s court for burglary in Kurmi votes. This will make it easier to challenge the Apna Dal Anupriya faction. Political pundits say that this time the SP is eyeing non-Yadav votes. He believes that by setting up the caste math in coordination with smaller parties, efforts are being made to get maximum percentage of them in their favor. For this reason, there has also been coordination with the Gondwana Gantantra Party, which has influence in Sonbhadra and Mirzapur.
Political experts say that if the SP is not able to perform well through the alliance, then it will be very difficult for it. Smaller parties can go to BJP’s court. Due to this, the alliance will be strengthened on the good performance of the SP. Rajiv Srivastava, who has been deeply involved in the politics of Uttar Pradesh for several decades, says that the SP has already done two big experiments of the alliance. In 2017, the SP had an alliance with the Congress. But neither the Congress vote was transferred to the SP. Neither did they get them. After 29 years in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the SP BSP formed an alliance. SP vote was not transferred to Mayawati. Neither Mayawati’s vote was transferred to SP. If it were, it would be a great success. The question is whether votes will be transferred to each other in the alliance that is in place now. Right now the SP has formed an alliance with Omprakash Rajbhar and Jayant Chaudhary.
The vote base of the SP in the West is in the Muslim community. Will Jats vote for a party with Muslim support? Because in 2013 Muzaffarnagar riots happened. He was Jat vs Muslim. In such a situation, it has to be seen whether the Muslim vote will come with the Jat. Similarly, in the East also, will the votes of Rajbhar go with Yadav? Virendra Bhatt, who has kept a special eye on UP politics for several decades, says that bringing non-Yadav backward castes into his party has been challenging since the time of Mulayam Singh Yadav. Yadav class do not accept any other caste like Auraiya, Etawah, Farurkhabad have majority of Shakyas but till date they have not got proper participation in SP. There is uneasiness in the Yadav class about the alliance with other castes. They feel that the alliance will reduce their class tickets.
