New Delhi: The results of the Lok Sabha elections 2024 are no less than a lesson for the BJP. They got a majority, but there were three-four states where the Bharatiya Janata Party did not get the seats as expected. States like UP, Maharashtra, West Bengal, Karnataka gave a big blow to the BJP, while states like Madhya Pradesh, Telangana and Odisha became its lifeline. In the last Lok Sabha elections, the BJP had won 303 seats, in which UP and Rajasthan also played a big role. BJP had hopes from UP this time too, but the hopes were dashed here.

It became a lifesaver

In Madhya Pradesh, BJP had won 28 out of 29 seats in 2019 but this time all the seats have gone to BJP's account. Here BJP's vote share has also increased by about one percent. In Andhra Pradesh, BJP could not open its account last time but this time it has won three seats. In Assam, BJP has maintained its figure of 9. In Chhattisgarh too, BJP has won one seat more than last time. In 2019, BJP got 9 seats and this time 10. In Gujarat, BJP has lost one seat but by winning 25 out of 26 seats, it has prevented the total number from going down further. In Himachal Pradesh, BJP had won all four seats in 2019 and this time too BJP repeated its same performance.Prime Minister Modi has been pushed on the backfoot…Where did the weak Congress get the lifeline from?
BJP also retained its two seats in Jammu and Kashmir. BJP suffered a major setback in Karnataka but Odisha acted as oxygen for BJP. In 2019, BJP had won 8 seats here but this time BJP has won 19 seats. In 2019, BJP's vote share here was 38.88 percent, while now BJP's vote share has reached 45.53 percent. In Delhi, BJP's vote share decreased by about two and a half percent compared to 2019, but despite the Congress-Aam Aadmi Party alliance, BJP managed to win all 7 seats. Telangana also helped in increasing BJP's oxygen level. In 2019, BJP had got 4 seats here and this time BJP has won 8 seats. The vote percentage also increased from 19.65 to 35.06 percent. In Uttarakhand also, like the last Lok Sabha elections, BJP won all 5 seats. In Tripura also, BJP repeated the performance of the last Lok Sabha elections and won both the seats. Tripura saved BJP's overall vote share from falling. In the last Lok Sabha elections, BJP's vote percentage in Tripura was 49.56 percent whereas this time it is 70.72 percent.
