After an intense seven-phase general election, the politically crucial state of Uttar Pradesh is set for vote counting on June 4, capturing the nation's attention. High-profile candidates such as Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union ministers Rajnath Singh and Smriti Irani, and opposition leaders Rahul Gandhi and Akhilesh Yadav are anxiously awaiting the results.

In a fiercely contested election, the ruling BJP, joined by allies Apna Dal (Sonelal), NISHAD Party, Rashtriya Lok Dal, and SBSP, faced off against the opposition INDIA bloc, comprising the Samajwadi Party and Congress.

With voting turnout recorded at 56.92%, two percentage points lower than in 2019, the results will determine the political fate of key figures. Voters have cast their ballots, and the political landscape of Uttar Pradesh hangs in the balance as the countdown to the results begins.
