LIVE: Uttar Pradesh Election Results 2022

 
The results for the Uttar Pradesh elections 2022 - which were held in seven phases starting February 10 - are being declared today. The polling dates in the states were February 10, 14, 20, 23, 27, March 3 and 7.
The UP polls - spanned over a period of two months - saw a high-octane campaign by the political parties.
Locked in a fierce battle with Akhilesh Yadav's Samajwadi Party, the ruling BJP - seeking to override anti-incumbency - raised issues like law-and-order problems during the previous government. Its leaders dubbed its rivals as ''dynasts'' and its star campaigners warned that the mafia elements, put in jail by the Yogi Adityanath government, will be out if the Samajwadi Party forms its government in the state.
Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra attempted to win voters with the 'ladki hoon,lad sakti hoon' campaign, on issues related to women and their security and questioned the "caste and religion-based politics" during the BJP rule.
BSP chief Mayawati, who led a low-key campaign for the most part, targeted the rivals on issues of inflation, poverty, unemployment and stray cattle menace.
The elections in UP - which were contested in 403 assembly constituencies -are being seen as a major indicator of national mood ahead of the next general elections in 2024.
These elections were also a test of the alliances carved by both the BJP and Samajwadi Party with regional parties. BJP's allies Apna Dal (Sonelal) and Nishad Party and Akhilesh Yadav's new partners Apna Dal (K), Suheldev Bhartiya Samaj Party (SBSP) of Om Prakash Rajbhar and others tried to rally their supporters in the elections.
