New Delhi. The announcement of the names of the candidates for the first phase of the UP Assembly Election 2022 has started. After all, in the SP-RLD Alliance too, there has been talk about the sharing of seats. On Thursday, this alliance released the first list of a total of 29 candidates for the first phase of elections. Sources are telling that between Jayant Chaudhary and Akhilesh Yadav, the screw was stuck in the sharing of seats in the UP assembly elections, but eventually both the parties agreed. However, sources are telling that there is still tension between the two parties regarding the sharing of many seats in western UP.
Let us tell you that in the meeting of the leaders of both the parties on Wednesday also, a situation of breakdown of the alliance had arisen. With great difficulty, the matter was resolved by talking of meeting again. For the past several days, the issue of seat-sharing between Jayant Chaudhary, son of Ajit Singh and grandson of former Prime Minister Chaudhary Charan Singh, and Akhilesh Yadav, son of Mulayam Singh Yadav, a special disciple of Charan Singh, was entangled. RLD leaders said that due to the attitude of Akhilesh Yadav, no decision could be taken in the meeting. When the election is near, the Samajwadi Party is agreeing to give 25 seats to RLD, whereas till some time ago there was talk of leaving 40 seats to RLD.
Two rounds of meetings were held between Akhilesh Yadav and RLD’s Jayant Chaudhary regarding seat sharing.
Where is the issue getting stuck in seat sharing?
Recently, two rounds of meetings were held between Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav and RLD’s Jayant Chaudhary regarding seat-sharing, but no decision could be taken. While Akhilesh wanted to contest 8 of his candidates on the RLD symbol in western UP, as promised in eastern Uttar Pradesh, he was not agreeing to field 4 RLD candidates on the SP symbol. The four candidates who were talked about contesting on the SP symbol include UP RLD president Masood Ahmed and former BJP MLC Ramashish Rai. Let us inform that Ramasish Rai has been the National President of BJP Yuva Morcha and had joined Jayant Chaudhary’s party RLD a few months back.
what the experts say
Sanjeev Pandey, a senior journalist who knows UP politics closely, says, ‘As far as I have information, the Congress had also offered 70 seats to the RLD, while the BJP had offered 25 seats and the post of Deputy CM. But, relying on the words of Akhilesh Yadav, Jayant Chaudhary rejected both the offers and decided to combine with the SP. At that time Akhilesh Yadav had promised 38 to 40 seats to RLD.

According to Pandey, of course, the influence of Charan Singh’s family is not in the whole of Uttar Pradesh, but there is no doubt that the influence of Charan Singh’s family in western UP is still significant. The biggest leader of Jats is Jayant Chaudhary in western UP, there is no room for doubt in this. The influence of this family is in the Jats of the area from Saharanpur to Agra-Fatehpur Sikri. In the current political situation, Jayant Chaudhary has a bigger stature than Swami Prasad Maurya and Om Prakash Rajbhar.
