UP Elections 2017: SP vs BSP - Muslim leaders conduct battle royale for community's vote in state

Senior leader Naseemudin Siddiqui of the BSP is battling SP leader Azam Khan for the Muslim vote in UP. While the battle is neck and neck, as for now Siddiqui seems to be pulling the rug away from under Azam's feet


It is a furious battle between the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and the Samajwadi Party (SP) to win the Muslim vote in the crucial UP elections. And while Mayawati seems to have pulled off a coup by getting support of various prominent Muslim religious groups; the western-educated elite Muslim class and alumnus of Aligarh Muslim University (AMU), are still rooting for the success of the Samajwadi Party-Congress alliance in the state polls.

These elections are also turning out to be a fight to the finish between two prominent Muslim faces, Naseemudin Siddique of the BSP and Mohamad Azam Khan of the Samajwadi Party (SP). Their respective party bosses have entrusted them with the responsibility of luring the Muslim electorate to the party fold, a crucial factor for the SP or BSP to return to the throne in Lucknow. The extent of support of Muslims to any of these parties will also expand or decrease the political clout of both these leaders, post the polls.
