The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has spent over ₹3 crore on Facebook advertisements in Uttar Pradesh (UP) ahead of the state assembly elections, Facebook Ad Library data has revealed. This is nearly half of the total ₹7.5 crore spent on Facebook ads in the UP region between January 21 to February 19.

Just a back of the envelope calculation shows that the UP arm of BJP would have spent roughly ₹10 lakh on daily basis on these Facebook ads, which is significantly higher than the ₹21,000 spent by Indian National Congress (INC) in the region in the same time frame.

Other political parties — including the Samajwadi Party and Rashtriya Lok Dal — are trailing behind when it comes to their Facebook ad spends in the last 30 days.
