Samajwadi Party President Akhilesh Yadav after the victory in the by-election in Uttar Pradesh's Mainpuri Lok Sabha seat, is now busy in preparing the political ground afresh. After bringing along uncle Shivpal Yadav, now Akhilesh's entire focus is on the Yadav vote bank and is making a strategy by connecting directly with Yadavland.
Akhilesh Yadav joined his uncle Shivpal Yadav before the Mainpuri by-election and conducted a door-to-door campaign after evaluating the harm caused over the previous few years. Akhilesh is currently developing a new plan and communicating directly with the youth of every village in Yadavland to make future plans.
In Uttar Pradesh, the Yadav community, which makes up 20% of the OBC community overall, accounts for about 8% of the electorate. The Yadav community was so intensely mobilised following the Mandal Commission that it ended up constituting the majority of SP supporters. On the basis of Yadav votes, Mulayam Singh Yadav was elected chief minister of Uttar Pradesh three times, while Akhilesh Yadav was elected once.
