Solidifying Bharatiya Janata Party's ground-level governance and hegemony in Uttar Pradesh, the party victoriously triumphed the Zila panchayat elections on July 3. Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath congratulated all the winning candidates and expressed triumphant joy by taking to Twitter.
Seemingly a precursor to 2022 polls, BJP's clean sweep in UP Zilla Panchayat polls remains "historic" as the ruling party won 67 of 75 seats while Akhilesh Yadav's Samajwadi Party could secure 6 seats. Conclusively, polls' results affirm the notion that people at the local and ground-level seem satisfied with the CM Yogi-led government.
Taking to Twitter, UP CM Yogi Adityanath congratulated candidates and wished well for their "bright tenure".
UP CM Yogi Adityanath wrote, "Hearty congratulations from my side to all the winning candidates for the post of District Panchayat President in the three-tier Panchayat elections. This victory of all of you will give more strength to the Panchayati Raj system of India. Best wishes to all of you for a bright tenure."

Meanwhile, speaking exclusively to Republic TV, Cabinet Minister in UP government, Sidharth Nath Singh said, "It show people have faith in BJP, its a good sign. We are happy about it as it shows trust of people in the CM Yogi government."
Upon being asked about Samajwadi Party's (SP) secured seats in UP Zilla Panchayat polls, he said that SP has been creating hue and cry by calling this a semi-final. He mentioned that what counts is the actual real work on the ground level and serving in the interest of people and not merely in the name of politics.
Singh also said, "I don't know what they (SP) will say now. They will make excuses now bevause it's a good victory for BJP before the 2022 election."
BJP's win in UP Zilla Panchayat polls 2021 is definitely a reflection of public confidence in the ruling party.
