Itwa. Samajwadi Party has won the Etawah assembly seat of Uttar Pradesh. SP candidate Mata Pandey has defeated Yogi Sarkar’s Basic Education Minister and Bharatiya Janata Party candidate Satish Chandra Dwivedi. At the beginning of the counting of votes, there was a tough competition between the two candidates, but in the end the SP candidate won. Samajwadi Party’s candidate Mata Prasad Pandey took the lead, but in the middle of the counting of votes, Satish Chandra had made a lead of 1559 votes. But according to the latest information, Mata Prasad Pandey has dusted Satish Chandra.
For information, let us tell you that for 2007 and 2012 assembly elections Mata Prasad Pandey of Samajwadi Party was elected MLA from Etawa seat. In 2007, he defeated Bahujan Samaj Party candidate Javed by a margin of less than 2000 votes. Five years later, in the 2012 elections, Mata Prasad was once again in the fray from Etawa seat, but the face of her rival candidate from the BSP had changed. But this time also Mata Prasad won the election with a lead of about 10 thousand votes.
In 2017 the seat was snatched from SP
The 2017 election was a hat-trick for Mata Prasad, but this time it was the traditional rival BSP as well as the BJP riding on the Modi-wave to block her path.
