Hindu-Muslim or Kisan-Taliban, on which issues will the public vote?
Now less than six months are left for the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections to be held.
The incident of farmers being crushed by the car of the Union Minister of State for Home in Lakhimpuri Kheri has given new life to the farmers’ movement and the politics associated with it.
Already the farmers of western UP on the border of Delhi and Uttar Pradesh have been agitating for the last 10 months. He says that the leaders sitting in power understand only the language of votes, so in this election, people will be appealed not to vote for the ruling party BJP.
On the other hand, the ruling party also does not want to keep any section of the angry public angry. Even before the elections, he has not only increased the support price of sugarcane to persuade the farmers but has also allegedly played his social engineering card to woo the angry Brahmins and other castes in the state.
Experts are looking at the recent cabinet expansion of the state from this perspective. Even during the Union Cabinet expansion, special care was taken of Uttar Pradesh.
