In 2017 BJP won 2 seats
According to political experts, in 2017, the SP fort was demolished by the BJP candidates due to mutual discord among the Saifai family. The big reason behind this was also that Shivpal Singh Yadav’s team did not work in favor of SP candidates due to displeasure on both the seats in 2017, which BJP got a big advantage and both the seats were occupied by the women MLAs of BJP. .
The general public was considering it as a Modi wave, but the defeat of the SP in both the seats was considered by political analysts as the reason for the defeat in the family. This time with Akhilesh Yadav, uncle Shivpal Yadav is once again together. So now the equations of victory and defeat on seats seem to be changing.
Etawah Sadar Seat
The equation of victory and defeat in Etawah Sadar assembly seat has been changed by the rebel leader of SP. Former municipality chairman Kuldeep Gupta Santu, who has claimed ticket from SP, is contesting from BSP. SP has bet on a new face in Sadar seat, while rebel Kuldeep has spoiled the SP-BJP equation by making a claim from BSP.
