UP politics is taking twists and turns. In the beginning father-son duo fought for supremacy of SP and even had a tussle for the party symbol “cycle”. With the result the front tyre was punctured due to Mulayam’s mulling and later when Rahul joined hands with SP, even the rear one was also deflated. Top fight in Kanpur and Lucknow followed it with Bundelkhand polls all pave way for a new trend in UP. Both BSP and BJP are having a crush with the ruling party to emerge as top contenders and the scene look bright for a new beginning as UP needs to take up developmental path to come out of the darkness after regular ruling by the regional parties and caste politics.
