BJP loses state elections in stronghold areas in India

The main cause for the loss in the state elections being cited is the violent treatment of the minorities and discrimination against them.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Bhartiya Janata Party lost in the state elections in the stronghold areas of Madhya Pardesh, Chhattisgarh, Rajhasthan Telangana and Mizoaram.

The main cause for the loss in the elections being cited is the violent treatment of the minorities and discrimination against them.

The Bhartia Janta Party was defeated by the Congress in the five states.

India has always claimed to be a secular country. After Narendra Modi became prime minister allegations against him of extremism kept increasing,and resulted in loss of elections because of maltreatment of minorities.

Relevant to mention here is, Narendra Modi had opposed Pakistan’s Kartarpur corridor on which he had to face intense resistance from the Sikh community.

Later the Modi government had shown agreement to open the Kartarpur border.

Loss in the recent state elections indicate that in the general elections Bhartiya Janata Party won’t have the support of the minorities in India.
