SP Turf War-UP Elections:
|UP elections 2017-A treat to watch|
Uttar Pradesh, one of the biggest constituency of India and one of the most critical landscapes of Indian polity. A land marked by conspiracies, crimes, riots, Behen Ji and the SP’s father-son duo. The elections are standing at the corner of the first quarter of 2017 and all the political parties are all set to capture this state-A powerhouse of Politics.
While BJP is yet again ready with Ram Mandir construction dispute, which has plagued the land since eternity and the recent successful surgical strike carried out by Indian army in Pakistan, under the PM of India, Shri Narendra Modi. Behen Ji is ready yet again with her Dalit card, which seizes to lose to its sheen despite using it multiple times. Congress looks clueless and trying anything and everything under the sun to demean the reputation of BJP, which it has garnered in last two years on the national level. While all this looks to mainstream, there is one party which is taking long strides to rule this beautiful state once more-Samajwadi Party or SP as people say (with love).
In the bid for the election, Akhilesh Yadav, the current CM of Uttar Pradesh has taken steps to improve his image, which he has diminished in last 5 years due to issues related to riots, rapes, murders, illegal land acquisitions to name few. The opening of new Headquarter 100, beautification of Uttar Pradesh, river cleaning project, and police patrolling projects are some of the many agendas under his manifesto. But, the biggest scenario right now is the turf war between Akhilesh Yadav and Mulayam Singh Yadav.
The stage is set and the actors are ready to oblige the stage with their performances. While Mulayam Singh was quick to question the working of Akhilesh Yadav and made Shivpal Yadav the chief of the state replacing his own son; his son was quick to clean up the party image by firing his uncle Shivpal Yadav and stripping him of all important ministries. He also removed the ministers, Gayatri Prasad Prajapati and Raj Kishor Singh, who were considered close to Mulayam Singh. The war looks like something we studied in our history-Divide and Rule. Here the ploy is the sympathy gained by Akhilesh Yadav, showing himself as a victim in the hands of his own father.
The situation looks good for the UP election, where the land of politics has been plowed with the seeds of conspiracy and the nutrients of the family feud. It will be interesting to see how the elections pan out in the charged up Uttar Pradesh next year.
