UP Elections: Jats hold the key in western parts

The western part of Uttar Pradesh, which goes to polls in the seventh and final phase, is predominantly inhabited by the Jat community and all parties, including the ruling SP'>BSP, are leaving nothing to change to harness the potential votebank in their best-possible way. In previous 2007 elections, this hotbed of Green Revolution saw SP'>BSP emerging as the largest party by grabbing 34 out of the 65 seats, followed by BJP with 11 and RLD with 10. SP and Congress could merely open their accounts with 3 and 2 seats respectively.

In a state otherwise trailing behind in various standards of living, the region, somewhat, has become a symbol of prosperity with rapid development both in its rural and urban parts owing to the Green Revolution and its vicinity to the national capital Delhi.
