Muslims cast their votes in UP, shocking polling figures

Lucknow: In uttar Pradesh, 58 seats in the first round of assembly elections were polled on Thursday and a total of 62 per cent polling has been recorded. Given the polling history in Uttar Pradesh, this figure is very good. But there is a lot of difference, district and assembly-wise. In a city like Ghaziabad, the voting percentage was the lowest at 55 per cent, while in Shamli, the voting percentage reached 69.42 per cent.

There are also different speculations about this difference in the figures by political experts. The increased vote percentage, especially in the Muslim and Jat-dominated and rural areas, can be seen as worrisome for the BJP. Talking about Shamli district, the total voting here was 69 per cent, but the most talked-about Kairana seat has recorded 75 per cent polling. It is clear from this that there has been a situation of polarisation of votes in Kairana and there has been an attempt to vote more and more from each side.

With this, 67 per cent voting was recorded in Shamli and 65 per cent in Thana bhawan. Traditionally, experts have believed that more voting is usually about change, while in the event of an atmosphere in favour of the current government, the percentage of voting remains low. Apart from this, 62.90 per cent polling has been recorded in Mathura and 60 per cent in Agra, which is called the Braj region. If these figures are to be taken as the basis, it is clear that the Muslim-majority and farmers' agitation-affected districts of Meerut, Muzaffarnagar, Shamli and Baghpat have witnessed a good turnout. Muzaffarnagar and Baghpat recorded up to 65 per cent polling.  

With this, 63 per cent polling was also recorded in Meerut. In Hapur too, the voting percentage was 67 per cent. In Bulandshahar also, 65 per cent of the people exercised their franchise. At the same time, in Ghaziabad, the figure came down to 55 per cent, while in Gautam Budh Nagar, it remained at 57 per cent, where urban areas like Noida and Greater Noida fall. Not only this, only 47 per cent voting has been recorded in Sahibabad in Ghaziabad, the most urban area. The highest turnout of 66 per cent in the district was recorded in The Modinagar seat, in which the large area is large rural.
