SP to find going tough in eastern part of UP
\RLucknow,April 6(HS) Unlike other areas,the fight is likely to be straight between the BJP or its ally and the SP-BSP combine in 13 Lok Sabha seats in Purvanchal region of Uttar Pradesh.The BJP had won all but two seats in this part in the previous poll.Of the remaining two, one,Mirzapur was bagged by a party ally,the Apna Dal. The only seat captured by the opposition was Azamgarh-- by SP founder Mulayam Singh Yadav.But the situation has not remained the same.It has largely changed.The BSP had fought the election separately in 2014 and the Qaumi Ekta Dal had not merged with the party.The Dal has many areas of influence in three constituencies,Ghazipur,Mau and Balia.It had lost all these seats.The merger into the BSP has ,however,created a better situation for the outfit.The BJP has left Mirzapur seat again for the ally,Apna Dal.It may offer one more to it and one to another ally, Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party.In the rest of the constituencies the party is likely to field its own candidates.The party may find the going tough this time in constiuencies where the victory margin was not much.It had won Ghazipur and two other seats with 30,000 and thereabout margin.Contest will be keener in them.Union minister Manoj Sinha was fielded by the BJP in Ghazipur. He had defeated his nearest SP rival by 32,000 margin.This has been left for the BSP under the new seat- sharing formula.Out of the total 13, seven seats in all will be contested by the BSP and the rest by the SP.In addition to Ghazipir ,the BSP will fight from Jaunpur ,Lalganj and four others.The SP has been given Azamgarh seat as it had contested and won it in the previous poll.Besides it, it will contest from Varanasi from where Prime Minister Narendra Modi will seek re-election,Mirzapur and Chandauli.Fight will be tough for the party in all these three seats for different reasons. Mirzapur,for instance, will be re-contested by union minister Anupriya Patel.It is dominated by her caste. Modi has launched a number of developmental schemes in Varanasi and changed its landscape.The SP,therefore, will find the going extremely difficult in this constituency.Between the two, SP and BSP,latter seems to be better placed.HS/RN \R
