BJP's share decreased in Uttar Pradesh

In the 2024 elections, the Congress made significant gains in a direct contest against the BJP, winning 61 out of 214 seats. The BJP’s seat share dropped to 83%, causing it to lose a majority in several key states, including Uttar Pradesh.

Congress emerged as a strong opposition party

In 2019, the Congress party won just 15 seats out of 190, which is a mere 8% of the direct contests against the BJP. This time, it managed to win 61 seats out of 214 such direct contests, which is more than 28%. In the last election, the BJP had an 86% share of the NDA’s 352 seats, winning 303 of them. Currently, the BJP has 240 seats out of 290, which slightly reduces its share to 83%, and it no longer has a majority on its own.
