The Mayawati–Akhilesh Yadav combine can also alter the NDA’s poll calculation for 2019 Lok Sabha elections. In case there is no SP-BSP Grand Alliance or ‘Mahagathbandhan’ in Uttar Pradesh, the NDA will come to power with 291 seats, 19 more than required in 543 member Lok Sabha. But if the alliance between the two works out, NDA will be reduced to 247 seats in the 543-member Lok Sabha, 25 short of a clear majority.
