Nasim Zaid, Chief Election Commissioner said that electoral roll for Uttar Pradesh will be published on January He also said that over 160 million voters are expected to vote in the five poll-bound states in the Assembly Elections Zaid also announced that this year, coloured voter slips will be issued by the Election Commission for the first time. 4. Some rules have also been changed. As per the EC, candidates will be required to have a photo on the nomination paper. 5. Use of loud speakers will be discouraged. 6. Forces will be deployed in advance. 7. The assembly election will be contested for the 403 seats of the Vidhan Sabha in the state of Uttar Pradesh.

4 8. There are 80 Parliamentary Constituencies in Uttar Pradesh. 9. Currently, the ruling Samajwadi Party has 229 seats in the Uttar Pradesh Legislative Assembly, while the opposition Bahujan Samaj Party has 79, Bharatiya Janata Party has 41, and Congress has 29 seats. 10. One seat has been reserved for an Anglo-Indian. 11. The two primary political contenders in Uttar Pradesh are the Samajwadi Party and Mayawati s Bahujan Samaj Party. This is all that can be expected in the poll-bound Uttar Pradesh: 1. The Uttar Pradesh Assembly Elections will witness a four-cornered contest among ruling Samajwadi Party (SP), Mayawati s Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), Congress and Prime Minister Narendra Modi s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). 2. In the opinion polls conducted by ABP, it has been predicted that Samajwadi Party is leading in eastern Uttar Pradesh with 35 percent vote share whereas BJP leading in western Uttar Pradesh with 37 percent votes. 3. Western Uttar Pradesh is the communal hotbed divided on the basis of religion with the Muzaffarnagar riots still fresh in the minds of electorate, opine experts. 4. Considering the Samajwadi Party feud and that the warring factions haven t reached on any agreement, the fate of Samajwadi Party remains gloomy. As Akhilesh and Mulayam continue to fight over the cycle symbol, it has yet not been cleared as to who gets to ride it in the upcoming Uttar Pradesh elections. 5. While Congress has declared Sheila Dikshit its chief ministerial candidate, the BJP is yet to decide as to who will be their candidate. The saffron party will likely bank on the popularity of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. 6. Samajwadi Party is expected to highlight the achievement and development projects done under its rule. 7. Congress will try to woo farmers of the Uttar Pradesh, promising them loan waiver. 8. Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi has been attacking PM Modi s demonetisation drive calling it a Firebombing, the party is expected to hit on the same subject.

5 9. While the BSP will try to consolidate Dalit-Muslim votes raising of violence against minorities, the BJP will highlight the pro-poor policies of Narendra Modi-led Central government. 10. Striking at the UP government, Modi at his Parivartan rally had said that development is not the priority for the Uttar Pradesh government. He had also said that UP government is not ready to take any responsibility. 11. Taking in the number of people that had turned-up at the rally for Narendra Modi s speech, the future of BJP looks bright in the state. 12. The BJP can also make use of the craze for Modi to win the Uttar Pradesh Assembly Elections Published Date: January 4, :44 PM IST Updated Date: January 4, :52 PM IST
