Congress’ Vote Share Increased In 58 Constituencies Where Rahul Gandhi Campaigned; BJP’s Vote Share Dropped in 46 Constituencies Where Modi Campaigned
BJP's vote share dropped in 46 out of 55 seats where PM Modi campaigned.
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) fared poorly in constituencies where Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath campaigned during the recently concluded Assembly elections in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Telangana, according to a report published in The Hindu. In clear contrast, the Congress party’s vote share increased in constituencies where Rahul Gandhi campaigned.
The vote share analysis by The Hindu reveals that a slip in vote share for the BJP was evident where Adityanath campaigned. The vote share dropped in 50 out of 61 seats (a steep 82 per cent). Similarly, the BJP’s vote share dropped in 46 out of 55 seats where PM Modi campaigned. The report also noted that the Congress’ vote share increased in 58 out of the 75 seats where Rahul Gandhi campaigned (77 per cent).
Similarly, an India Spend report, based on electoral data noted that while Modi held more than 70 per cent (22) of his rallies in MP and Rajasthan, the BJP managed to win only 22 out of 54 seats (41 per cent).
Likewise, in Chhattisgarh, Mizoram and Telangana, in 26 constituencies across which Narendra Modi held eight rallies, the BJP managed to salvage only one constituency.
