Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh’s MLC elections are to be held on January 30. The polls will take place after a thumping victory by the BJP’s Yogi Adityanath two consecutive times early last year, and he became the first UP chief minister to retain power after the completion of a full five-year term.

Currently, the BJP and SP are the only two parties that are in contention in UP. The BSP and Congress have lost people’s faith in the state.

The BJP and SP have declared the names of their candidates for the upcoming January 30 elections in three graduate and two teacher constituencies.

Voting is set to occur in 38 districts of Uttar Pradesh. The state has a bicameral legislature, so graduates’ and teachers’ constituencies exist in UP.

Who can vote?

Those who have attended a three year degree course at recognised universities and passed the final exam are eligible to vote. Like this, those who have been working as teachers for three years out of the previous six years can also cast their votes from the teachers’ constituencies.

After Independence, a new plan came into force that several MLCs should be the representatives of only the educated class who would like to eradicate the effects of caste and religion, apart from money and muscle power.

The illiteracy rate in India at that time was high. At present, the situation is much better; people are getting graduation degrees easily. But the old practise is still being followed.
