Bharatiya Janata Party leader Subramanian Swamy on Wednesday hinted that the Bahujan Samaj Party may win in the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections.
Swamy took to Twitter to compare BSP supremo Mayawati with US President Donald Trump, who won presidential elections last year by defeating frontrunner Democrat Hillary Clinton.
In UP I think Mayavati will pull off a Donald Trump

Clinton was leading in almost all the opinion polls and predictions before the elections, but it was Trump who evbentually won the elections in November 2016. It was being said Trump's brash remarks and controversial statements would have negative impact on his chances of becoming the President, but the electorate thought otherwise.
The second of the seven phase assembly elections in UP was held on Wednesday. The main contest in UP is between the BJP, the Congress-SP alliance and the BSP.
