The BJP has recently registered a big victory in the Zila Parishad elections in Uttar Pradesh. It has has won 65 out of 75 seats in the Uttar Pradesh Zila panchayat polls.

As per the survey, about 37% of respondents believed that the incumbent Chief Minister will not return to power in the 2022 State Legislative Assembly polls. The sample size of the survey was 1200 and based on the response of adults across all segments. Uttar Pradesh is expected to go to the polls in February next year while the current govt’s term will expire on March 14, 2022. A total of 403 seats are up for grabs. The BJP had secured 312 seats in the 2017 polls with a voter percentage of 39.67%.

The elections in the state are likely to be held in February next year. The term of the present Uttar Pradesh assembly will expire on March 14, 2022. 

While the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic brought destruction all across the country, the images from UP of Covid infected bodies floating in Ganga particularly highlighted the misery of people.

Yogi Adityanath has been facing flak of the opposition for his handling of the pandemic. The holding of the Panchayat polls during the second wave, which resulted in the deaths of over a thousand officials and teachers on duty, along with the loss in Panchayat polls, has put the BJP in damage control mode ahead of next year's assembly elections. 

The IANS-CVoter Snap Poll also found that 46% of its respondents think the situation in the country will improve with a new Union Cabinet while 41 % said the situation will remain the same. The sample size of the survey is 1,200 and is based on interviews with adult respondents across all segments.
