BJP leader Ram Bahoran Maurya

BJP has fielded Ram Bahoran Maurya as its candidate for the vacant MLC seat after the resignation of former Samajwadi Party leader Swami Prasad Maurya. Bahoran was elected MLA from Bhojipura seat in Bareilly in 2017. However, the party also fielded him in the 2022 elections, but he faced defeat. Now BJP has announced him as candidate for MLC seat.

MLC has also announced the date of election on this seat. The nomination process for the MLC seat has started from June 25. Last date for nomination is 2nd July while voting is on 12th July and the result will be declared on the same day. In such a situation, BJP has already declared Bahoran Maurya as its candidate a day ago. This seat belongs to Assembly Constituency Quota. In which only the members of the Legislative Assembly voted. If we look at the numerical strength, this seat can go to BJP’s account.

BJP’s victory in the elections is almost certain

After July 2, the deadline for nominations, the Samajwadi Party is yet to open its cards. One of the reasons behind this could also be that the SP knows that this seat may go to the BJP, in such a situation why should it take the blame of the defeat unnecessarily. BJP has absolute majority in the current assembly. BJP alone has 249 MLAs while SP has only 104. In such a situation, BJP’s victory in this MLC by-election is considered certain.


Swami Prasad Maurya resigned in February

In February this year, Swami Prasad Maurya had resigned from the primary membership of the SP. Along with this, he also left the membership of the Legislative Council. After resigning, Maurya said that I have an ideological difference with Akhilesh Yadavji, not a personal one.

He also accused Akhilesh Yadav of going against socialist ideology. After resigning from SP, Maurya also formed his own party named ‘Rashtriya Shoshit Samaj Party’. When he formed the party, he said that he would strengthen the Bharatiya Janata Party to oust the BJP from the Centre.
