UP Election Results 2017 updates: BJP wins 3 seats, leading on 302; SP wins 1

The counting of votes for all the 403 Uttar Pradesh Assembly seats concluded on Saturday. The trends had given indication about the high-stakes electoral battle between the ruling Samajwadi Party, BSP, BJP and the Congress. But BJP gained a huge majority in the state. 

The results of exit polls on Thursday by various agencies have confirmed the widespread feeling that the voter sentiment is still in the favour of the Bharatiya Janata Party and it could emerge as the single largest party in the politically-prized state.

The fate of candidates from Uttar Pradesh's 403 assembly constituencies spanning across 75 districts will be out in few hours. 

Top candidates to watch out for

It is no secret that fate of Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav, party patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav, senior leader Azam Khan, BSP chief Mayawati, BJP state president Keshav Prasad Maurya, Smriti Irani, Rajnath Singh's elder son Pankaj Singh and Congress' Sheila Dikshit will be on the line.

In addition to general observers, a micro-observer will be deputed at each and every counting table to keep an eye on counting.

Three-tier security arrangements have been made to ensure full proof security in and around the counting centres.

Only central para-military forces will be deployed inside the counting centres while local police will be deployed in the outer circle and armed forces from other states will be around the centres to prevent the entry of any unauthorised persons.

20,000 personnel of central forces were being deployed, police said.

A total of 78 counting centres have been set up in the state. In three districts of Amethi, Azamgarh and Kushinagar two counting centres each have been set up and in remaining all 72 district counting will be held at one place.

The Election Commission has issued strict guidelines on security arrangements for counting of votes. It has prohibited mobile phones inside the counting halls.

As part of the three-tier security arrangements, adequate local police force shall be stationed at first point of entry to check the identity of the persons seeking entry into the counting premises.

A senior magistrate will be posted at the entrance to control the crowd and regulate the entry. The Election commission has said the 100-metre area around a counting premise or campus should be demarcated as pedestrian zone and no vehicles should be allowed within this perimeter.

Additional CCTV cameras will be installed at such locations from where the carrying of EVMs from strong rooms to the counting hall can be recorded for effective monitoring.

Uttar Pradesh had seven-phase polling that started on February 11 and ended on March 8.
