Assembly Elections 2022

Assembly Elections 2022: The stage is set for Assembly elections in five states -- Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Manipur, Goa and Punjab. While the first four are ruled by the Bharatiya Janata Party, the last one has a Congress government. Although the dates are yet to be announced, all the political parties have started flexing their muscles in the poll-bound states. Uttar Pradesh, the country's most populous and one of the most politically crucial states, is already witnessing marathon rallies by top politicians from both the ruling and opposition parties. Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently visited Varanasi, also his parliamentary seat, to inaugurate the Kashi Vishwanath Corridor, setting the tone for elections. From Congress' side, its senior leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra is spearheading the campaign. She is addressing rallies across the length and breadth of the state, promising to bring a change if her party forms the next government. Samajwadi Party's Akhilesh Yadav and BSP supremo Mayawati, both former CMs of Uttar Pradesh, are also leaving no stone unturned to woo the voters.

    Service to people is real 'Ram Rajya', all promises fulfilled: UP CM

    Promises made by the BJP prior to the formation of the government in 2017 have been fulfilled since we consider service to people as the real “Ram Rajya”, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said on Sunday. He said the BJP's non-appeasement policy was the reason behind the "tremendous development" of every section of the society in the last four-and-a-half years. “The act of providing free housing, toilets and insurance cover up to Rs 5 lakh to the poor is the real Ram Rajya,” Adityanath said prior to flagging off the 'Jan Vishwas Yatra' from Mathura.
