New Delhi:

Akhilesh Yadav is set to kick off Samajwadi Party’s campaign for the upcoming Uttar Pradesh assembly elections from Sultanpur on Tuesday. But what is the reason of SP chief to choose a constituency which will go to polls in Phase 5 instead of the ones which go to polls on February 11?

According to sources, celestial planets hold the answer to the poll conundrum of Samajwadi Party campaign. 

Here are the top 5 possible reason why Akhilesh chose Sultanpur to start his poll trail: 

Centre of the auspicious triangle: Akhilesh Yadav is a believer in astrology. His astrologer has reportedly told him that Sultanpur is at the centre of the geopolitically and religiously crucial triangle. It is at equidistance from Ayodhya, Allahabad and Varanasi. Thus, he ought to start the campaign from here. 

Direction of the inauguration: The direction of the city is auspicious to start a new campaign. 

Political relevance: Sultanpur is also politically crucial, as it has five constituencies, traditionally held by Samajwadi Party. Additionally, the MLA from Sadar Bazar Arun Verma is a close-aide of CM Akhilesh.

Purvanchal angle: Starting a campaign from Sultanpur affords Akhilesh leverage to focus on Purvanchal or western UP.  

Lucky constituency: Sadar assembly seat of Sultanpur is crucial for its track record of being held by winning party.
