Uttar Pradesh local body elections have begun in the state, and Yogi Adityanath’s government will be facing a crucial test; if it can sustain its support system votes. Yogi Adityanath will be casting his vote in Gorakhpur, and even though the communal election is not as big as the state election, it is larger in scope and the voting body than other states. In haste to gather support and good will, Adityanath has been on campaign trail with is deputy Keshav Prasad Maurya, and has been seen commenting and making promises. Yogi Adityanath was one of the first people to oppose the release of the movie Padmavati, even though he hasn’t seen it yet.
Congress is also hard at work in the promotion process, and its mayoral candidate, Pradeep Jain, who is from Jhansi, is also promoting and spreading his agendas to the public. Previously, he had lost the Lok Sabha in 2014, to Uma Bharti.
Over 3 crore people are going to cast their votes in the election, at 36 thousand polling booths and 11 thousand polling stations. The votes will be counted on 1 December 2017.
It is yet to be seen if Yogi Adityanath is going to successful in his attempt to win over the support of the public, but he hasn’t left any stone un-turned to sway their attention.
