The drought-prone Bundelkhand, one of the most backward regions of Uttar Pradesh, is a place where development has dominated the political discourse during the election campaign. While the BJP has attempted to highlight the failures of Akhilesh Yadav government in this region, the latter has pointed to the Central Government's inability to keep its promises and help address the backwardness of the region. That Uma Bharti - the high-profile Union Minister for Water Resources in the Narendra Modi Government - is a key face of the BJP in this region, has given an opportunity to Samajwadi Party-Congress alliance to claim that Bundelkhand's water woes continue even when she is in a position to find a long-term solution to the problem.
