The SP and BSP had formed an alliance for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections which was later called off by Mayawati amid a debate over transfer of vote share. The BSP won 15 seats from zero, while the SP remained stuck at five.

The bypolls to 11 assembly seats will be held as the sitting MLAs were elected to the Lok Sabha while the vacancy in Hamirpur was caused due to the disqualification of BJP legislator Ashok Kumar Singh Chandel following his conviction in a murder case.

The assembly constituencies that fell vacant following the election of sitting MLAs as MPs are Manikpur, Iglas (SC), Zaidpur (SC), Gangoh, Balha (SC), Rampur, Jalalpur, Pratapgarh, Lucknow Cantonment, Govindnagar and Tundla (SC).
