In the election battlefield of Revolutionary Rao Umrao Singh's birthplace and Shaheed Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev's Karmabhoomi (Gautambudh Nagar), the ground has been prepared amidst political turmoil. The political battle has intensified as soon as the candidates are declared by all the major parties in the three assembly seats of the district. Who will tie the crown of victory, it will be known on March 10, but before that voters will get to see a lot of arrows being shot among the warriors of politics.
Gautam Budh Nagar, adjacent to the national capital, is considered to be the show window of Uttar Pradesh, so the eyes of all parties are on the election of the assembly seats here. Political parties have bet on candidates keeping caste equations. The BJP has fielded Thakur on two seats and a Gujjar candidate on one. While the SP-RLD alliance has bet on Gujjar candidates in all three seats. The BSP has fielded a Gurjar face in two seats and a Brahmin face on one. Similarly, Congress has played Gurjar card in two places and Brahmin card in one seat. Even before the nomination, the candidates have started their political bets.
Gautam Budh Nagar is considered to be a Gujjar dominated district, so Gujjar voters will be very important in the election. If Brahmins, Dalits, Muslims are in a decisive position in Dadri and Noida assembly seats, then Thakur, Gurjar, Dalit, Muslim, Jat and Brahmin will prove to be important in deciding the fate of the candidates in Jewar. There is also dissatisfaction among all the political parties regarding the selection of candidates.
Due to this, the candidates are also afraid of contraception. While BJP candidates are heating up the political atmosphere by going among the voters on the issue of development, including Noida International Airport, Film City and projects worth thousands of crores in their achievements, while the SP-RLD alliance, BSP and Congress are local issues, land compensation, Farmers movement, including leaseback in lieu of acquired land, are busy in making their inroads among the voters on the issue of inflation and employment.
