In Assam numbers, how BJP gained from demography, CAB and seat selection

In the Lok Sabha election results from Assam, where the BJP has improved from seven seats out of 14 in 2014 to nine seats in 2019, two questions might strike anyone who had followed the events in the state leading up to the election. How did the BJP gain when it had faced so much anger over the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill (CAB) being pushed by its government at the Centre? Second, when the BJP’s vote share in Assam has fallen fractionally from 36.86% in 2014 to 36.05% in 2019, how did that translate into two additional seats?

The first question should be addressed by demography. Assam minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said the CAB helped the BJP across the state by polarising voters. In areas where the Bill has enjoyed visible support, it does appear to have worked for the BJP. Even in areas where it has faced protests, the BJP made massive gains, but many factors are likely to have contributed to that.
