    Vijay Rath Yatra to start at noon

    Samajwadi Party's 'Vijay Rath Yatra' will start from Ghazipur after public meeting at 11 am at Pakhnpur, Mohammadabad. 

    All the major parties - the BJP, Samajwadi Party, Bahujan Samaj Party and the Congress - have announced to go it alone in the upcoming assembly polls in Uttar Pradesh. Rather, these parties are focusing on firming up alliances with smaller caste-based parties in the state to expand their support base. The ABP-CVoter pre-poll survey has given a clear edge to the BJP, with Samajwadi Party emerging as its main contender. It has projected a victory for the Yogi Adityanath-led BJP in the state but with a huge loss in the seat-share, which might come as a direct gain for the Samajwadi Party.
