The board has been set up for the assembly by-elections to be held in 7 seats in UP. Every party has its own preparation but the special thing is that on behalf of the ruling party, the Chief Minister will lead the campaign in the election summer, while the leader of the opposition will not be in the field. Samajwadi Party President Akhilesh Yadav will hold a virtual rally. Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and BSP supremo Mayawati will also stay away from the electoral fray.
The opposition is quite hopeful of these by-elections in this phase of Corona transition, out of the seven seats where the by-elections are being held, one Samajwadi Party had it while the remaining 6 seats were won by BJP candidates. In such a situation, the opposition is putting all its efforts to share the seats of the BJP account. Opposition parties believe that the public is troubled by the economic conditions and law and order after the lockdown. There is resentment in it and its impact will be seen in the elections.
