According to SP sources, party president Akhilesh Yadav and BSP chief Mayawati had joined hands based on calculations showing that their votes in the 2017 Assembly elections, if added, would have exceeded the BJP tally. In Gorakhpur, the combined votes of SP (or its then ally Congress) and BSP were more than those of BJP in four out of five Assembly seats. In Phulpur, too, their combined total was ahead in four out of five Assembly seats.

In the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, on the other hand, Yogi in Gorakhpur and Maurya in Phulpur had polled more than the SP and BSP together in each segment (see tables).
