Azamgarh Lok Sabha By-Election: BSP President Mayawati played a big bet on the Islamic card in the by-election for two seats of Lok Sabha. Firstly, it was decided not to present candidates in Rampur for Muslim sympathy, and secondly, Shah Alam known as Gudo Jamali from the same class of Azamgarh sent a message of sympathy to them. As a result, the battle of Azamgarh does not appear to be easy for the SP.
Guddu Jamali was a member of the MLA twice on a BSP ticket from the Mubarakpur Council Headquarters in Azamgarh District. He won the elections for the first time in 2012 and for the second time in 2017. This time in the Majlis elections, he fought from Owaisi’s party, the Muslim Union Council, but he could not show charisma. Guddu is a builder and has a good standing among Muslims. Being a BSP candidate, Dalit Voting Bank can go with him. Mayawati’s focus is entirely on the seat of Azamgarh. There is also a possibility that she can hold meetings on her own.
Millim got a tough competition
Gudu Jamali ran for the 2014 Lok Sabha election from the Azamgarh Lok Sabha seat. He got 266,528 votes. This year SP Patron Mulayam Singh Yadav ran for election. The fight turned into a fierce one as the BSP was a Muslim, the BJP and the Socialist Party were Yadav’s candidate. The BJP tried its best to besiege Mawlayam Singh Yadav by engaging Ramkant Yadav. Due to a triple fight, Mulayam Singh Yadav won with 63,204 votes. The seat became vacant after Akhilesh Yadav resigned. That is why Achilles will not be penniless in battle. From this it is clear that a third person will come from the SP side. In such a situation, political experts say, it may be difficult for the Socialist Party to belittle Judo Jamali. However, candidates from other parties have not yet applied.
