Loksabha Election 2024: There is not much time left in the Lok Sabha elections 2024, potentially elections can be held in April or May next year. For the last two Lok Sabha elections, the dominance of the BJP under the leadership of PM Modi has remained. In the last 2019 elections, BJP had won a bigger victory than the 2014 elections. According to the CSDS survey, 52 percent of all Hindus voted for the NDA in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, while 43 percent of Hindus voted in the 2014 elections, that is, nine percent more Hindus supported in 2019.

And in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, 9 percent of Muslims and 16 percent of Christians voted for the NDA, which is not much different from the figures of 2014 elections. In this sequence, let us understand what was revealed in the survey.

Vote percentage of BJP in Lok Sabha Elections 2019
According to the Lokniti-CSDS Post Poll survey, the results of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections came with very little support from religious minorities. While Hindus overwhelmingly voted behind the BJP-led NDA alliance and gave a strong mandate. According to the survey, out of the total 52 percent Hindu votes, the Forward had given more than 59 percent votes to the NDA.

Talking about Hindu OBCs, they gave 54 percent votes to BJP in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. While the ruling party got 46 percent votes among Hindu tribals and 41 percent among Hindu Dalits. On the other hand, it is said that only around 9 percent of the Muslims voted for the NDA. At the same time, rising above this, Christians had voted for the NDA, which is 16 percent. In addition, the popularity of Sikhs towards the BJP had dropped from 16 per cent to 11 per cent.

Survey on popularity of PM Modi
In this survey, a survey was also done regarding the popularity of PM Modi, according to which the difference between Hindus and minorities was very high. In the survey, 54 percent Hindus wanted Modi to continue as the Prime Minister again, while 29 percent Hindus did not want him to return. On the other hand, if we talk about Muslims, then 64 percent Muslims wanted Modi not to become PM again while 55 percent Sikhs and Christians did not want Modi to become Prime Minister again.

Hindus of these states gave maximum votes
According to the CSDS survey, state-wise percentage of Hindus giving overwhelming mandate to NDA is at the forefront in Assam, where 70 per cent Hindus voted for BJP. On the other hand, 67 percent of Hindus in PM Modi’s home state Gujarat, 66 percent in Delhi, 65 percent in Bihar, 64 percent in Jharkhand, 63 percent in Rajasthan, 62 percent in Maharashtra, 59 percent in Uttar Pradesh and 57 percent in West Bengal supported the NDA.

Who were the Muslims with?
In the survey, the BJP fared poorly in states that did not have a Hindu majority area, including Tamil Nadu and Kerala, while votes were not cast in many southern states due to lack of penetration. From this data, it seems that the consolidation of Hindus behind the BJP matches the consolidation of Muslims behind its rival party in many states. Let us tell you that according to the survey, 73 percent of the Muslims in Uttar Pradesh voted for the Grand Alliance. On the other hand, in Maharashtra, about 86 percent voted for the Congress-NCP-led alliance in the Lok Sabha elections in 2019.
