Congress and Samajwadi Party Finalize Seat-Sharing Deal for UP in 2024 Lok Sabha Elections

In a significant development for the opposition alliance aiming to challenge the BJP in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, the Congress and Samajwadi Party have announced their seat-sharing agreement for Uttar Pradesh. This marks the first major seat-sharing deal within the “INDIA bloc,” formed in June 2023 to counter the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party.

As per the agreement, the Congress will contest 17 seats, including its traditional strongholds of Raebareli and Amethi, while the Samajwadi Party will field candidates in the remaining 63 constituencies of Uttar Pradesh. This deal comes after days of intense negotiations, particularly following the Congress-AAP alliance’s victory in the Chandigarh mayoral election, which served as the bloc’s first electoral win.

The announcement of the seat-sharing agreement is a crucial step for the opposition alliance, which has faced challenges regarding cohesion and internal disagreements, particularly on seat allocation. The intervention of Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and Sonia Gandhi is believed to have played a key role in finalizing the deal.

This development is expected to boost the morale and prospects of the opposition alliance in their fight against the BJP in the upcoming national elections. The ability of the Congress and Samajwadi Party to effectively collaborate and present a united front in Uttar Pradesh, a crucial state with 80 Lok Sabha seats, will be critical in determining the outcome of the 2024 general election.
