Lucknow: As assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh are scheduled next month, the Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has called the election in India’s most populous state an “80 versus 20 battle”.

The numbers citied by the BJP’s Yogi Adityanath roughly correspond to the ratio of Hindus to Muslims in UP. Yogi made the comments in Lucknow when he was asked a question about Brahmin votes in the state.

“The contest has moved much ahead,” reports quoted Yogi as saying. “The fight is now 80 versus 20,” he added.
