Bahujan Samaj Party has 80 MLAs in the 403-member Assembly and with 34 first preference votes needed for the victory of a candidate, the party can easily ensure success of its two nominees with 12 votes to spare.

For Rajya Sabha, BSP has fielded Satish Chandra Mishra and Ashok Sidharth, while for the Legislative Council its candidates are Atar Singh Rao, Dinesh Chandra and Suresh Kashyap.

In the Legislative Council, where 29 votes are needed for the victory of a candidate, BSP has fielded three candidates and is short of seven votes for the success of its third nominee. Polling for the Legislative Council is slated for June 10.
