In the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, the Bharatiya Janata Party had won all of the state’s 26 seats with a vote share of 60.1 per cent. Congress was the second in terms of vote share at 33.5 per cent.
More women voted in 2019 Lok Sabha elections than men. Could this impact results?
More women voted in Lok Sabha Elections 2019 than men, a trend witnessed for the first time in the history of elections in India.
NATIONAL DEMOCRATIC ALLIANCE (NDA)
Led by the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), the NDA counts among its ranks key players in states that send large numbers of MPs to the Lok Sabha. One example is the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhgam (AIADMK), which currently holds 36 of the Tamil Nadu’s 39 parliamentary seats, making it the third largest party in the Lok Sabha.
In Bihar, home to 40 seats, the BJP has allies in the Janata Dal (United) — whose leader, Nitish Kumar, has been chief minister since 2005, albeit with different partners — and Ram Vilas Paswan’s Lok Janshakti Party (LJP).
The Shiv Sena, a Maharashtra ally (which has had an on-off relationship with the BJP), is the sixth largest party in the Lok Sabha with 18 seats. Maharashtra is represented by 48 MPs, and only one other state, Uttar Pradesh, has more parliamentarians.
Punjab’s Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) is another major partner for the BJP.
UNITED PROGRESSIVE ALLIANCE (UPA)
Led by the Indian National Congress, this coalition governed India for a decade before being routed by the NDA in 2014. Like the BJP, the Congress has major allies in big states — the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) in Maharashtra, the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) in Tamil Nadu and the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) in Bihar and Jharkhand, for example.
Other key partners include the Janata Dal (Secular) in Karnataka and the Jammu and Kashmir National Conference (NC).
Regional players could have a major say in government formation. Let’s take a look at some of them.
The race everyone’s watching is the one unfolding in Uttar Pradesh, whose 80 constituencies send the single largest contingent of lawmakers to Parliament. Here, Akhilesh Yadav’s Samajwadi Party (SP) and Mayawati’s Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) have joined hands with the Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD), led by Ajit Singh, to form a “grand alliance”. The grouping doesn’t include the Congress, but its members support Congress governments in other states — albeit in varying combinations.
In West Bengal, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s All India Trinamool Congress (TMC) currently holds 33 out of 42 parliamentary seats, making it the fourth largest party in the Lok Sabha.
In Andhra Pradesh, home to 25 seats, Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu’s Telugu Desam Party (TDP) faced off against Jagan Mohan Reddy’s YSR Congress (YSRCP) in both national and state elections in April. Last year, the TDP and the Congress contested a state election in Telangana together — but they did not do so during the Andhra Pradesh elections last month. This week Chandrababu Naidu met several opposition leaders, including Rahul Gandhi, in Delhi.
Other possible kingmakers include Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik’s Biju Janata Dal (BJD), which says it will take a call after the results, and Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao’s Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) — which is exploring the possibility of forming an alliance of regional blocs, keeping both the BJP and Congress out. Odisha has 21 Lok Sabha seats, and Telangana, 17.
The prowess of Left parties is on the decline, but they can be players in Kerala — which is governed by the Left Democratic Front alliance — and in West Bengal.
