The year 2012 will see general elections being conducted in fives states of India including the state of Uttar Pradesh. Uttar Pradesh is the most populous country in India and therefore the elections will be held in seven phases in the state over the month of February.
As per the trends, SP (Samajwadi Party) dominates the elections in the state of Uttar Pradesh with majority of votes going in favor of the party. Uttar Pradesh continues to be a trouble area for the Indian National Congress as they are unable to produce impressing results in the state.
However, the congress surprised everyone in the general elections held in 2009, when it secured second position in the tally of votes. Interest is alive on the fact whether Congress will be able to repeat the performance. Mayawati led BSP (Bahujan Samaj Party) is the favourite party in the state as it registered a victory with a large margin in the 2007 General Elections. Also, Mayawati has a large fan base.
