UP Elections 2017: What Happens in Case of a Hung Assembly?

But Akhilesh again kept his options open by saying: "Yes, if we need something during the formation of government. nobody would like the BJP to run Uttar Pradesh with a remote control under President's rule". It showed the Samajwadi Party-Congress getting 136 seats and Mayawati Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) 77.

"Akhileshji didn't mention BSP or Behenji's name".

"I can not say anything about an alliance at this hour because we are going to form government on our own".

BSP chief Mayawati, with plenty of justification, has never forgotten the time she had to lock herself up into a room in the UP State Guest House in Lucknow to escape assault by SP workers. "I'm confident the SP-Congress alliance will win majority and form the government", Akhilesh Yadav told BBC Hindi today after exit polls released their projections.

Tight security arrangements are in place for the counting of votes tomorrow for 403 assembly seat in Uttar Pradesh. However, the focus is on the election results of the largest state in the country which all parties want to win.

31 workers found guilty, 117 acquitted in 2012 Manesar plant violence
Maruti shut down its Manesar plant for a month after the violence. "All I know is 117 people have been acquitted of all charges". Almost 150 workers were arrested, of whom 117 were found not guilty today of charges including criminal conspiracy and murder.

Like Mayawati, we can't rule this out.

Though the BJP had won 177 seats, Congress and Janata Dal extended support to the SP-BSP alliance, which resulted in the anointment of Mulayam Singh Yadav as the Chief Minister of the state.

Uttar Pradesh is also witness to unusual bedfellows in the BJP and the BSP coming together in even stranger coalition of rotating chief ministership for six-month period, which proved to be a flop in the late 90s.

To tie up with the BJP, therefore, would be to commit hara-kiri as one of the reasons why the SP-Congress combine was the first choice of the Muslims in this elections was the fact that she had shared power with the BJP in the past.

The war of thrones is finally set to conclude and with the date set for 11 March, Uttar Pradesh will get their new Chief Minister. The Times Now-VMR Exit Poll results predicts that the BJP is likely to emerge as a big victor in Uttar Pradesh.
