Samajwadi Party’s Allegation
A day before the counting on Friday, the Samajwadi Party (SP) claimed that the election manual was recently amended, deleting portions related to the declaration of votes received by candidates after each round of counting. The party accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of plotting a “conspiracy” to “influence” the results of the local body elections and change the mandate of the people. According to Manoj Pandey, the SP’s chief whip in the Legislative Assembly, the election manual for local body polls includes a provision for writing on a blackboard the details of valid votes obtained by a candidate, invalid votes, and the total votes polled after each round of counting.
The Uttar Pradesh Municipal Election Results 2023 is one of the most anticipated events in India’s political calendar. With the first win registered, the BJP is off to a good start, but the counting is still underway, and the final results are yet to come. The Municipal Election Results hold the utmost importance for all political parties, and the results will be a key factor in deciding the political course for the country in the future.
