Utter Pradesh (UP) Assembly Election 2012

One of biggest states of India, Utter Pradesh (UP) is going for Assembly Election in few months. Presently, UP is governed by Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) which won 2007 Assembly Election by getting comfortable majority of 206 out of total seats of 403. In earlier Assembly Elections, no political party was able to win full majority and these were hung assemblies. However, in 2007 Assembly Election people of UP showed their confidence in BSP lead by Mayawati and gave it full majority.

Many political pundits (experts) predicted that in 2007 UP assembly election, it will be again hung assembly; however, Brahmin-Dalit combination helped Mayawati to see a historic win in UP. During, BSP rule state saw stable government for five years and state saw progress in major areas; though, lots of things still remained to be desired. The major concern during present BSP rule is law and order condition in UP which is still cause of great concern.

Employment, corruption, government apathy and forceful land acquisition are some of problems which common people of UP are still facing. During 4 and half years rule of Mayawati, many BSP MLAs and minister were charged with criminal offenses which decreased credibility of government; though, Mayawati did right work by removing these persons from party. BSP got major set back in 2009 Loksabha Election (just held after two years of Assembly election) when it got only 20 Loksabha seats out of total 80 Loksabha seats in UP.
