UP Lok Sabha Election Result 2024: How was the game in UP? Understand the reasons for BJP’s defeat in 5 points

In the last ten years, it is because of Uttar Pradesh that BJP was able to reach power on its own. This state has the maximum number of 80 Lok Sabha seats. Therefore, in every Lok Sabha election, Uttar Pradesh is an important state for both Congress and BJP. In 2014, the maximum number of 73 BJP MPs were elected from Uttar Pradesh. In 2019, 62 BJP MPs were elected from Uttar Pradesh. However, in 2024, Uttar Pradesh gave a shock to BJP. BJP had to be satisfied with only 33 seats. The number of BJP MPs decreased by 29. At the same time, 37 MPs of Akhilesh Yadav’s Samajwadi Party were elected. This is no less than a shock for BJP. Because if Uttar Pradesh had supported, BJP could have reached power on its own. Where did BJP go wrong in Uttar Pradesh? Let’s understand Akhilesh Yadav’s strategy.

– In Uttar Pradesh, BJP has entered the fray this time by expanding its alliance. They formed an alliance with Anupriya Patel’s Apna Dal (S) and Sanjay Nishad’s Nishad Party along with Jayant Chaudhary’s RLD and Om Prakash Rajbhar’s Subhaspa. It was the Samajwadi Party and Congress who took the lead. The SP-Congress alliance got a total of 43 seats in Uttar Pradesh.

Mayawati’s BSP will have to contest the elections alone this time. It could not even open its account. BJP suffered the biggest setback in Purvanchal. Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Varanasi Lok Sabha constituency falls in this Purvanchal.

– Ten years ago, BJP did new social engineering in Uttar Pradesh by linking non-Yadav OBCs and non-Jatav Dalits with the upper caste vote bank. On the basis of that, BJP strengthened its hold in Uttar Pradesh. But this time BJP itself spoiled this equation.

-SP chief Akhilesh Yadav has made a strategy by taking PDA (Backward-Dalit-Minority) along. Apart from this, the opposition also raised the issue of constitution and reservation. So BJP’s social engineering went wrong.

– Non-Yadav OBC castes Mallah, Kurmi and Maurya-Kushwaha left BJP and joined SP-Congress. Due to the Constitution, Dalit voters turned towards SP-Congress. That is why BJP had to lose in UP.
