Uttar Pradesh Election Results 2022, UP Election 2022: Uttar Pradesh on Thursday gave a thumbs to the “double-engine” BJP government led by Yogi Adityanath who will return as the chief minister for a second straight term — first time in the the last 37 years. Trends available so far show that the BJP is leading on 268 seats while the SP-RLD alliance was a distant second, leading on 128 seats. On the other hand, the BSP and the Congress struggled to touch double-digit mark. These elections are seen a litmus test for the Yogi Adityanath-led BJP government which is battling anti-incumbency factor along with a reinvigorated Samajwadi Party, which has joined hands with the Rashtriya Lok Dal.
