Campaign in the first of seven phased Assembly elections ended today in 73 seats of western Uttar Pradesh where Prime Minister Narendra Modi staked his all in the fight against SP-Congress alliance and BSP making it essentially a triangular contest. Urging the voters to end the ‘vikas ka vanvas’ (exile of development) and projecting demonetisation as an attack against corruption, Modi and BJP accused SP and BSP of plundering the state over the years and targeted the SP-Congress alliance, saying the two had come together to save themselves.

Meanwhile, the Allahadbad High Court has asked the Election Commission to decide over the issue of Samajwadi party’s election manifesto.

Highlights:

4:50 pm: Allahabad HC asks EC to decide over issue of SP’s election manifesto, the petitioner had stated that manifesto is misleading.
