New Delhi: In Bihar, the Janata Dal (United), the Vikassheel Insaan Party (VIP), and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) are working together to form a coalition administration. Both the JD(U) and the VIP are members of the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA), but each of these parties will run in the upcoming Uttar Pradesh assembly elections on its own behalf. KC Tyagi, the national spokesman for the JD(U), said that it would not have an impact on their coalition, but expressed sadness that his party would have to join the contest on its own.

The JD(U) will run for 50 seats in Uttar Pradesh:

Both the VIP and the JD(U) had expressed an interest in running in the Uttar Pradesh elections with the BJP, but their requests were rebuffed. As of now, the JD(U) has revealed the names of 20 candidates who will compete for a total of 50 seats in Uttar Pradesh. However, meetings between senior party officials RCP Singh and top BJP leaders for an alliance in Uttar Pradesh did not materialize as hoped, and the talks did not result in a formal agreement.

The BJP joins forces with the Nishad Party in opposition to VIP

In a similar vein, the Nishad-centric VIP had hoped to be given the opportunity to compete against the BJP in Uttar Pradesh, but the BJP has allied itself with the Nishad Party in this state. It has not been easy for Vip to maintain good ties with the Nishad Party. The VIP has accused Sanjay Nishad, the leader of the Nishad political party, of using the feelings of the community for the benefit of himself and his family on a number of occasions.

Nishad Party will fight the election on its own

After failing to get along with the BJP, the VIP has now chosen to join the political fight on his own behalf. She is implicitly blaming the BJP for the condition of the Nishad people and explicitly condemning the Nishad Party for its misfortune.

When are the elections in Uttar Pradesh scheduled to take place?

As notified by the Election Commission, the elections in Uttar Pradesh would be conducted in seven parts, according to the timetable. There will be voting on February 10, February 14, February 20, February 23, February 27, March 3, and March 7. Voting will take place on February 10, February 14, February 20, February 23, February 27, March 3, and March 7. In the following days, the counting of ballots for Uttar Pradesh and four other states will take place on March 10 and the results will be announced on the same day, respectively. Several major political parties, including the BJP, the Congress, the SP, and the BSP, are running for office in the state.

The state of Uttar Pradesh has a total of 403 legislative seats. In 2017, the BJP and its allies won 324 seats in the state election and went on to become the government. The Samajwadi Party and the Congress had fought the elections jointly and had won 54 seats in the House of Representatives. The SP had won 47 seats, whilst the Congress had won seven seats. A separate election resulted in the Bahujan Samaj Party winning 19 seats. Following the elections, Yogi Adityanath was appointed as the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh.
