The result of the Uttar Pradesh civil polls on Friday will have a bearing on the forthcoming Gujarat Assembly elections and Lok Sabha polls 2019. The civil polls were held for over 198 nagar palika parishads (municpal council), 438 muncipal boards (nagar panchayats) and 16 municipal corporation (nagar nigams) in 75 districts. Around 3.3 crore have exercised their voting rights with 79,113 candidates.This poll is a big test for Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath after an emphatic win during Uttar Pradesh Assembly election. Now, the result of civil polls will reveal whether his hardline Hindutva image has gone down well with the voters of the state or not. The Samajwadi Party (SP) and the Congress, which forged an alliance in the 2017 Lok Sabha elections, have contested separately this time. The Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) has also fought for the election, however, Mayawati has not campaigned for the polls. Unlike Mayawati, SP chief Akhilesh Yadav has also taken a back seat with no serious campaigning to win over the voters.Rahul Gandhi and Gujarat assembly electionsThe results come at a time when BJP and Congress are in for a big showdown for the upcoming Gujarat assembly elections. Both the parties have held massive campaigns and rallies lead by Vice President Rahul Gandhi and Prime Minister Narendra Modi across Gujarat.Rahul Gandhi’s rally have been in the midst of his religion controversy and his obvious visits to the temples. Rahul had tried to hold the Congress’ fort after mother and chief Sonia Gandhi laid low due to health concerns and has been a lone leader ever since leading the Gujarat polls. After being ridiculed by BJP many times for his “not-so-powerful statements”, he is now seen trying hard to gain the trust of the people. Rahul appears a lot more confident these days and this has helped boost the morale of the party workers. However, standing against Narendra Modi and Amit Shah will be tough competition.BJP’s popularity scaleThe result will either boost the moral of the saffron party or it will simply give them a heads up for the big game ahead.Political observers said that the result of this election will somewhat divulge the mindset of the voters for the upcoming 2019 Lok Sabha elections. This result will also be crucial for the BJP as it will reveal the voters trust and faith in the saffron party for the big game.
