The civic polls in Uttar Pradesh (UP) will be held in three phases in starting from November 22, the second and third phase will be held on November 26 and November 29. The counting of the votes will take place on December 1, 2017.

Nand Gopal Gupta’s wife Abhilasha Gupta is the mayor candidate from Allahabad. The Minister was for long in the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and joined the BJP in the run-up to the state assembly elections earlier this year.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath started the campaign for the civic elections from Ayodhya. The upcoming civic polls will be a test for BJP for the 6 months regime and a reality check for the upcoming 2019 Lok Sabha elections as the state got BJP 71 seats in 2014 Lok Sabha elections. The BJP instead of putting its stakes on young blood has chosen time-tested veterans for the crucial urban body polls.
