Pradip Bhandari and Akriti Bhatia spoke to a group of youngsters at Riverfront Park in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh. They hope for development of and in the State so that it emerges as a powerful centre, both politically and socially. They also wish for initiatives that encourage both music and musicians within UP, to reveal the hidden talent within the State. Akhilesh Yadavs Samajwadi Party, one of them says, has a high chance of coming back to power. They later jammed for Jan Ki Baat to reveal the storehouse of talent that exists in UP, the talents that is otherwise masked by the mainstream media.
The UP Elections 2017 would prove itself as a battleground for a number of parties and for a number of reason. The poll-pound state would bear witness to the clash between 3 different, politically, ideologically as well as socially, parties: emergence of Akhilesh Yadav is one of the SPs major concerns and the recent SP-Congress tie-up reveals this anxiety; the Bahujan Samaj Party led by Mayawati hopes to redeem its political future and rid itself off of charges of corruption; the BJP, too, hopes to capture the States seats to achieve its vision of a Congress-mukt India.
Uttar Pradesh Elections 2017 are soon becoming a source for redemption; not only for the BSP but also for the Congress, which is banking on its before-scams image. Congress has already formed a pre-poll alliance with the Samajwadi Party. Salvation for whom, is the question.
