The dates of the Lok Sabha election 2019 have been announced. In the last Lok Sabha elections, this time it is going to vote in 7 phases, compared to 9 phases. In Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and West Bengal, the maximum voting will be in 7 phases, while in Odisha, Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh, four phases will be held. There is a view that the dates of elections are favorable to the Bharatiya Janata Party, because in the states where the party has the expectation or challenge, the voting is in many phases.
Election analyst and Swaraj India leader Yogendra Yadav has raised questions about the need to cast votes in West Bengal instead of 5th phase, 7th phase in Odisha, 4 phases in Odisha and 4 phases in Maharashtra. With this, Yogendra Yadav has also raised questions about the elections in Delhi, Punjab and Haryana in May. So Lok Sabha elections are going on in Jammu and Kashmir, but questions have been raised even when the assembly elections are not held. In such a situation, analysis of state-wide challenges becomes necessary for the BJP.
Apart from Yogendra Yadav, Aam Aadmi Party’s Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh wrote in a tweet, “Did Modiji send the date of his election campaign to the Election Commission and according to him the Election Commission declared dates of election? Ever heard of elections in Bengal 7 phase? At the same time TMC has raised questions about voting during Ramzan.
RJD MP Manoj Jha, while criticizing the Election Commission in ‘Aajtak’, said, “Why is it that you (EC) are giving stagnant dates? We are suspecting the way the dates have been declared There has been an attempt to tame the election in the favor of the resource-rich party. To understand who is the resource-rich party today, you do not want rocket science.Rs is spent. “
Opposition parties look into the allegations that those questions are being raised about the elections in those states.
Uttar Pradesh -80 seats, 7 stages
In terms of seats, elections in seven phases of Uttar Pradesh, the largest in the country, will be held this time. While the last time voting took place in 6 phases. In recent days, the political equation of Uttar Pradesh has changed rapidly. The anti-social Samajwadi Party and Bahujan Samaj Party combine are the biggest news of recent times. Apart from this, Congress, which is forming the government in three states of Hindi belt, is proud of the party and the party is going aggressively to the UP’s political field.
According to experts, the BJP, which won 71 seats in the last Lok Sabha elections, is facing a challenge to replicate its performance.
West Bengal – 42 seats, 7 stages
The Bharatiya Janata Party has expanded its political land in West Bengal in the last few years. The BJP, which has two seats in the last Lok Sabha elections, is very much expected from West Bengal this time, because the party has managed to establish itself as the main opposition party. If there is electoral strategists, then BJP wants to compensate the prospective losses in North and West India from East and North-East states.
Bihar-40 seats, 7 stages
The idea of how much seats in Bihar matters to the BJP, it can be estimated that the party, which won 22 seats in the last Lok Sabha elections, gave 17 seats to the Janata Dal (U) combine, which won two seats. This time NDA’s Kunba is strong in Bihar because Nitish Kumar, who is contesting alone for the last time, is standing with Prime Minister Narendra Modi this time. Although the NDA has lost a constituent party National Lok Samata Party, but BJP has managed to bring a big party with it. Since Nitish Kumar has a government in the state, the anti-incumbency wave against the state and the Center will be fought by the NDA.
The opposition, along with RJD-Congress-RLSP, Hindan Awam Morcha of Jitan Ram Manjhi and Sharad Yadav’s party are also firmly prepared to challenge.
Maharashtra -48 seats, 4th phase
This time in Maharashtra, 48 seats are to be held in four phases, while the 2014 election was held in three phases, while the assembly elections in just one phase. Despite being in the alliance, Shiv Sena, which opposed the state and central government, has finally formed an alliance with BJP. In this coalition, the Shiv Sena fight has been decided on 25 seats in BJP and 23 seats. BJP President Amit Shah has targeted this time to win 45 seats in Maharashtra.
But there is also a truth that 4 years of Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has been completed. A portion of the state is facing a severe drought. In the last few years, many big peasant movements in the state have tried to create an environment against the Fadnavis government. Therefore, the Opposition would like to take advantage of anti-incumbency wave against the Center and the state government.
Madhya Pradesh -29 seats, 4th phase
In Madhya Pradesh this time, for the 29 seats, the elections are to be held in four phases, while the last three phases have been voted. The Congress party has been occupying power in the recently concluded Assembly elections, ending the BJP’s 15-year rule. Madhya Pradesh is considered to be the stronghold of BJP’s Maternal Organization, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh. It is also worth mentioning that in the last 4 phases of the state elections are going to be cast.
There is a challenge before the BJP that there is no wave against the recently formed state government, before the Lok Sabha elections, the state’s Kamal Nath government is taking a breathtaking decision after the other.
Odisha-21 seats, 4th phase
In terms of Lok Sabha election 2019, Odisha holds special significance for BJP. For the first time in the last few years, a wave can be felt against the state’s Biju Janata Dal government.Though the Congress is the main opposition party in the state, but the state unit of the party does not see the aggression as it can be seen in BJP. Recently, BJD’s big leaders have also been included in the BJP, including MP Baijayant Jay Panda.
In the last Lok Sabha elections, BJD won 20 of the state’s 21 seats while the Bharatiya Janata Party got success in the Sundargarh seat. The Congress’s account could not even open there. At the same time, the assembly elections in the state are to be done simultaneously, so the better it is for the BJP till the length of the voting.
