The Aza­m­garh Lok Sabha con­stituency in Ut­tar Pradesh has been a hard nut for the BJP to crack. In the 2014 Lok Sabha elec­tion, SP leader Mu­layam Singh Ya­dav won the seat. In the 2017 state assem­bly elec­tion, the BJP lost all five assem­bly seg­ments in the con­stituency. In 2019, SP chief Akhilesh Ya­dav won de­spite ex­ten­sive cam­paign­ing by chief min­is­ter Yogi Adityanath, who re­fuses to give up on the con­stituency. He has cho­sen Aza­m­garh to be­gin hold­ing a re­view meet­ing on devel­op­ment projects and the law and order sit­u­a­tion and has asked po­lice for a list of the dis­trict’s top 10 crim­i­nals.
