"Elections are as much about perceptions and narrative as they are about strategies. And political parties are trying hard to build their own perception and narrative this election season. Last week, it was Akhilesh Yadav who set the narrative by inducting top OBC leaders into the party. Many of them were sitting MLAs and even three ministers including Swami Prasad Maurya.
The leaders challenged BJP and countered Yogi Adityanath's 80 vs 20 with 85 vs 15.
This week however, it is the BjP setting narrative in Uttar Pradesh. The party has been able to create a political split in the Yadav family.
Ending days of speculation, Aparna Yadav who hails from Samajwadi parivar adorned the saffron shawl today. Aparna yadav is a chhoti bahu, younger Daughter in law of Samajwadi patriarch Mulayam Singh yadav. There were speculations earlier that she could join the BJP. Today, she officially joined BjP in presence of deputy CM Keshav Prasad Maurya & BJP State president Swatantra Dev Singh.
