New Delhi: Speculators running the betting market in Hapur-Meerut, Uttar Pradesh are betting on the victory of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party in the February-March assembly elections. In the initial trends, bookies have expected BJP to get around 230 seats out of the total 403 seats in the state, while SP is second with 130 seats. However, bookies are yet to give any seats to Congress and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). They say that they are speaking on the basis of their initial trends and the situation may change in the coming phases in multi-level elections.
‘BJP will emerge as the strongest party’
According to the trends of the bookies, BJP will lose around 60 to 70 seats, but will emerge as the strongest party in the UP elections. Talking about this, bookie Kapil (name changed on request) said, “Though a lot of things have gone against BJP, but still they seem to be winning. BJP withdrew the agriculture bill. The Lakhimpur Kheri incident has also been against the saffron party, but still we have found that they are going to win again.
‘Samajwadi Party is winning 130 seats’
“As per our trends, they are winning around 230 seats,” the bookie said. Samajwadi Party is winning 130 seats. In the coming phase of elections, this number may change, but it will be a mild change, which we expect. Another bookie, who declined to be named, said that as of now they are betting on the number of seats for BJP and SP. He said the rest will be cleared in the next phase of elections.
‘We have no rate for Congress’
The bookie said, “We are offering 1,000 for the BJP right now. After the first phase of elections, it may change from 1,000 to 5,000 or 10,000 depending on the current trends. We are giving 230 seats to BJP based on the trends of our session. We don’t have any rate for Congress. Samajwadi Party’s session rate is for 130 seats.
‘Not betting on Chief Minister’s name’
The bookies said that they are not betting on the name of the Chief Minister. He said that the name can change as per the choice of the party and hence they are betting only on the name of the party. They are just guessing which party can get how many seats. A bookie said, who will be the chief minister, it is not in our list. We are betting on the party and the total number of seats they are going to win. Rates will change after each phase of elections. (IANS)
