Lucknow: Except for the Congress, no other political party in the district of Saharanpur, which made Uttar Pradesh's first female Chief Minister, has shown an interest in enlisting the support of half the people in politics.

Across the seven assembly seats in the district, there are a total of 25 lakh 80 thousand 386 voters, with over half of them (12 lakh 16 thousand 46) being women. However, the SP-BSP BJP has not nominated a woman candidate. Women have unquestionably been acknowledged by Congress, which has nominated female candidates for the Behat and Saharanpur metropolitan seats.

Women Candidate in UP Elections:

Sukhwinder Kaur has been called to the field. Mayawati, the BSP president, and the former Chief Minister was the last woman to be elected to the Saharanpur district assembly when she was the Chief Minister in 2002, making her the district's final female legislator.

In this election, the number of Rajputs that were elected has also fallen. Naresh Saini, a former member of the Congress Party, has been appointed as the BJP's candidate in Behat. Raees Malik has been handed tickets by the SP, while former MLC Umar Ali has been awarded seats by the BSP. Mukesh Chaudhary, a member of the Gurjar community, has been nominated as the BJP's new candidate in Nakur. Dharam Singh Saini, the party's MLA, is running for re-election as an SP candidate after switching parties. Shahil Khan, a party defector, has been handed a ticket by the BSP. Randhir Singh is a candidate for the Congress.

The BJP's candidate for the Saharanpur Nagar seat is Rajiv Gunwar, who was defeated in the last election. Sanjay Garg, a third-term MLA from the state of Punjab, is the candidate, while the BSP has placed its hope in Manish Arora, a young leader from the Punjabi community who is running as a BSP candidate. Jagpal Singh, the three-member MLA who defected from the BSP and joined the BJP, is running for the seat of Saharanpur Dehat in Uttar Pradesh. Ashu Malik, a former MLSO, has been named to the SP's roster. Ajab Singh, a newcomer to the BSP, has been offered a nomination. Sandeep Kumar is the candidate for the Congress Party.

Brijesh Rawat, a current MLA from Deoband, is the BJP's contender for the seat. Kartikeya Rana, the son of former minister Rajendra Rana, has been fielded by Sp. Rajendra Chaudhary, a famous Gurjar leader and the head of the Haridwar Zila panchayat, has been nominated by the BSP. Rahat Khalil, a new candidate for the Congress, has been handed the party's nomination.

Standing for the reserved seat of Rampur Maniharan is incumbent MLA Devendra Nim. Also running is Devendra Nim's brother-in-law Vivek Kant, son of former MP Jagpal Singh, who is running as an independent candidate in Rampur Maniharan. In the BSP's primary election, Ravindra Kumar alias Mollu, a two-term MLA and famous Dalit politician from western Uttar Pradesh would be the candidate. He has been a member of the BJP for about three years. He is the most heavily favored contender for this position. Ompal Singh has been nominated as the candidate of the Congress party.
