Political parties in Uttar Pradesh are currently gearing up for the urban local body polls. These civic polls, likely to be held by the end of this year, will not only reinvigorate the cadre of different outfits but also test their poll preparedness in the run-up to the high-octane general elections in 2024.
In the 2017 UP urban local bodies polls, about 30 million voters were eligible to exercise their franchise. In all, elections were held for 652 posts in 438 nagar panchayats (municipal boards), 198 nagar palika parishad (town areas), and 16 nagar nigams (municipal corporations).
The 16 corporations comprised then newly constituted Ayodhya Nagar Nigam and Mathura-Vrindavan Nagar Nigam, which were formed by the Yogi Adityanath government 1.0.
