BJP has captured the mayor posts of all the 17 municipal corporations of Uttar Pradesh and this victory has further increased the stature of Yogi Adityanath within Uttar Pradesh and the party. This is also because this is the first such election where Yogi Adityanath was campaigning on his own.

On the one hand, during the Karnataka assembly campaign, the entire central team of BJP was engaged with full force in registering its presence among the people. At the same time, CM Yogi Aditya himself took command of the election campaign in the state and was in the fray to form a triple engine government.
