Former chief minister and Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav, who had earlier won from Sambhal and Mainpuri, is now considering the Ferozabad seat.
After delimitation, the Yadav-dominated Assembly seat of Karhal, from where Mulayam had won several times, will no longer remain with Mainpuri. According to SP leaders, Ferozabad is a safer seat, with a large number of Yadav and Lodh voters.
National vice-president of BJP, Kalyan Singh, too will change his seat. Bulandshaher, from where he won in the 2004 parliament elections, will be reserved now.
According to BJP leaders, Singh may shift to Etah, which has a dominant Lodh vote. Singh had won from Bulandshaher with a slender margin in the 2004 Lok Sabha elections and his son had lost from Dibai assembly segment, which is in the same parliamentary constituency.
Besides Kalyan Singh and Mulayam, the delimitation has brought trouble to young Congress MP Jitin Prasad, whose Shahjehanpur seat will be reserved now.
Prasad is to decide between Dhaurehra and Aanola seats, which touch the border of Shahjehanpur. Dhaurehra seat has been created by merging two segments of Shahjehanpur and three of Lakhimpur district.
Rebel Samajwadi Party leader and Jan Morcha convenor Raj Babbar has almost decided to shift from Agra to the newly-created parliamentary constituency of Fatehpur Sikri, which will now become a reserved seat.
Three assembly segments of Agra, Khairagarh, Agra Rural and Fatehabad have been included in Fatehpur Sikri. Balrampur parliamentary seat, from where Atal Bihari Vajpayee had contested his first election, will not exist after delimitation.
The delimitation commission has created a new seat, Shravasti, in which assembly segments of Balrampur, Tulsipur and Gainsari have been merged.
After the creation of this new seat, the BJP MP from Balrampur, Brij Bhooshan Saran Singh, may shift to his old seat of Gonda.
Mayawati’s parliamentary seat of Akbarpur will now become a general seat. Khurja parliamentary seat, from where the BJP has won in the last four elections, will become a general seat instead of a reserved one. Former Union minister Ashok Pradhan is sitting MP from this seat.
Besides these seats, delimitation has also changed the geography of many others, including Pratapgarh, Allahabad, Lucknow, Unnao, Badaun and Sultanpur.
