<p>This comes after Akhilesh Yadav and Jayant Chaudhary discussed their strategy over the phone on Monday night and agreed to the seat-sharing formula.&nbsp;</p>
<p>The two leaders had met in Lucknow in November to give a final shape of their alliance and after the meeting, both had put out tweets confirming the finalisation of the poll partnership.</p>
<p>The SP allying with the RLD is seen to be Akhilesh Yadav’s effort to win more seats in western Uttar Pradesh having around 67 assembly seats.<br /><br />Most of these seats are with the BJP presently, but the SP-RLD together wish to change the equation in 2022 state polls particularly in the wake of farmers’ agitation against three farm laws.<br /><br />Western UP has a sizeable population of farmers and people from there had participated in the agitation against farm laws on Delhi borders.<br /><br />Deriving its legacy from former "kisan" Prime Minister Chaudhary Charan Singh, RLD claims support among the farmers in the region.</p>
<p>Uttar Pradesh will go to poll in 7 phases from 10th Feb to 7th March, the Elections Commission announced today.<br /><br />The first phase will begin on February 10, second on February 14, third on February 20, fourth on February 23, fifth on February 27.<br />The final two phases will happen in March. The sixth phase on March 3 and the final phase on March 7.<br /><br />All polling will end by March 7, 2022 and votes will be counted on March 10, 2022.</p>
