All SP bigwigs have been directed by the high command to reach eastern region. The seasoned campaigners have been given the special responsibility to look after some of the key constituencies so that the party can solve problems of the candidates.

Azamgarh seat in Purvanchal has been witnessing a major hubbub ever since party Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav has decided to contest from there.

On the other hand, Lalganj (Reserved) seat, which is located near Azamgarh and other constituencies on its borders, namely Ghosi and Jaunpur are in BSP’s kitty.

The SP has put in all its bench-strength to save Mulayam’s credibility in the Purvanchal.

Most of the Purvanchal seats are scheduled to go to polls on 7th and 12th May. The SP faces a stiff challenge of sorts to retain some of the key seats like Balia, Chandauli, Ghazipur, Macchlishahr, Robertsganj and Mirzapur.  It’s mainly due to this very reason, the SP is focused more on reducing BSP’s effect instead of dealing with Modi wave.

The BSP presently has Bhadohi, Basti, Deoria, Ghosi, Jaunpur and Lalganj Parliamentary seats in its bag.

The SP has already asked its senior leaders to put more emphasis on the Purvanchal seats in order to put up a defiant face against BSP.
