One of the most densely populated states of the country, Uttar Pradesh (UP) is the heartland of eastern and northern India. The state captured a strong political momentum, making the state gain a lot of public and media attention with time. The state is dominated by some major parties and prime among them are Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and Samajwadi Party (SP) and also BJP and Congress to some extent.

Before 2012, Mayawati was the chief minister of UP and also the chief of Bahujan Samaj Party. She ruled the state for four terms from 1995 till March, 2012. With the assembly elections of 2012, things changed largely. The state and its citizen voted off BSP and welcomed SP to rule the state. Presently, the state is under the administrative rule of Samajwadi Party and its Chief Minister is Akhilesh Yadav.

Few months back the state was making news as it witnessed riots in Muzaffarnagar district, killing about 43 lives and injuring 93 lives. There a Hindu-Muslim riot raging over the whole of the district and affected the lives of the people badly. Curfew was set in place in the riot areas and army camps were set up for rescue efforts.

This critical incident of the state has now become a political tool for the political parties to conduct its pre-election campaigns and use the present situations as its promotional backdrop. Using Muzaffarnagar riot as a ladder to garner more votes and as strong electoral promotions strategy, Rahul Gandhi, vice president of Congress visited the riot affected areas few days back. He, in his speech, lashed out at Akhilesh Yadav and his government for lack of adequate care of the people affected by the riot. This was an unannounced visit by the Gandhi scion and he was down in the city as a part of his election strategy. He was surprised by the lack of facilities in the relief camps and thus suggested the government to take proper care of the riot prone areas and to improve the facilities.

Akhilesh Yadav, Chief Minister of UP, took the suggestion warmly and said that his government was helping the victims and were looking in to making proper arrangements for the victims so that to go back to their homes from the camps. He welcomed the suggestions made by Gandhi and said that every possible way out will be taken into consideration and that the party does not believe in making politics out of tragedy.

The present scenario states that even after acknowledging Rahul Gandhi’s remark and suggestion of improving the riot affected areas, the UP government has not changed anything as such. So for now, Congress is moving forward and holding protests in Meerut and Lucknow for the awful situation in the relief camps in Muzaffarnagar district. The party affairs incharge and AICC general secretary, Madhusudan Mistry told reporters that on January 21, the party is going to hold a protest in Meerut and will take out a march in Lucknow on January 30. He even criticized the present government and stated that the funds that were allotted for this purpose were not being properly used by the party members and thus no improvements were being made. The protest march will include issues such as on atrocities on the dalits, backwards and other minorities as well.

Each and every state is unique in its own way and so is the political atmosphere of each and every state. With 2014 Lok Sabha elections just round the corner, every political party is using one or the other burning political issues as their promotional weapon to grab more voters for them.
