The election to the 17th Uttar Pradesh Legislative Assembly was held from 11 February to 8 March 2017 in 7 phases. This election saw voter turnout of 61.04% compared to 59.40% in the previous election. Bharatiya Janata Party won this election by an overwhelming three-quarter majority of 325 seats with the help of his large number of party workers despite not projecting a chief ministerial candidate before the election. As part of its election strategy BJP contested under a collective leadership and capitalised mostly on the political clout and 'brand' of its leader, Narendra Modi. In the previous election in 2012, the Samajwadi Party had won a majority and formed government in the leadership of Akhilesh Yadav.

On March 18, 2017, Adityanath Yogi was appointed the next CM of Uttar Pradesh. UP BJP Chief Keshav Prasad Maurya and Dr. Dinesh Sharma were appointed as the Deputy CM.

Background[edit]

Electoral process changes[edit]

In January 2016, the Election Commission of India published updated electoral rolls in all 403 assembly segments.[1] In July 2016, Election Commission decided to increase the number of polling booths in Uttar Pradesh for the 2017 Assembly elections. New polling centres will be planned in the constituencies having more than 1,500 registered voters as well as polling booths in six constituencies of Muzaffarnagar, Budhana, Purkazi, Khatoli, Charthawal and Midanpur to be raised from 1,769 to 1,819 booths.[2][3] Voter assistance booths would be set up and photo slip of voters in a new design would be sent to them. First time, the Form-2B would contain the photograph of the candidates and their nationality.

Voter-verified paper audit trail (VVPAT) machines was used along with EVM in 30 assembly constituencies covering 14 districts including Varanasi,[4][5][6] Ghaziabad[7] and Bareilly constituency.[8][9]

Reactions[edit]

After the BJP emerged as the majority party in the election, Prime Minister Narendra Modi thanked the public in a tweet saying, "Gratitude to the people of India for the continued faith, support and affection for the BJP. This is very humbling & overwhelming." The BJP's UP chief Keshav Prasad Maurya attributed the victory to Modi saying, "It is a Modi wave. The wave which started with 2014 Lok Sabha elections is continuing in 2017 and the momentum will go beyond the 2019 general elections."[50] Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi sent a tweet to Modi congratulating him for his party's victory, to which Modi replied, "Thank you. Long live democracy!"[51] Modi was congratulated on the victory by U.S. President Donald Trump during a telephone conversation on 27 March 2017.[52]

The BBC wrote that the BJP "appears to have successfully forged a coalition of upper, middle-ranking and lower castes to be able to manipulate the social arithmetic of Indian elections". It also noted that the party had been able to avoid the image of "doling out reckless patronage to a caste or group", which the BBC considered responsible for the SP's defeat. Bhanu Joshi of Delhi-based think tank Centre for Policy Research said, "He [Modi] has managed to go beyond the caste arithmetic. On the ground, the BJP is not perceived as a casteist party."[53]

Political scientist Milan Vaishnav felt that the election "represents a referendum on demonetisation". Vaishnav said, "Whether voters were bothered by the implementation of the policy or not, they clearly have decided that the PM is a man of action."[53]

BSP Leader and former Chief Minister Mayavati claimed that the BJP tampered with the Electronic Voting Machines (EVM) thereby rigging the election outcome. However, this charge was rejected by the Election Commission as well as other parties as lacking any substance.[54][55][56][57]

Political analyst and author Shantanu Gupta wrote in his famous article in Swarajyamag, that Whoever Wins On 11 March, Beware, UP Is A Big, Big Mess. In this article Shantanu said that only five countries in the world have population larger than that of Uttar Pradesh. With close to 200 million people, the state accounts for 16.5 per cent of India’s population, but contributes only 8.5 per cent to the gross domestic product (GDP). In contrast, Gujarat accounts for 5 per cent of the country’s population and contributes 7.5 per cent to the GDP. This clearly shows how Uttar Pradesh eats into India’s resources, rather than contributing to it.[58]
