Despite Dalit uprising in state, BSP scores lowest among last three LS polls

Despite Gujarat witnessing Dalit uprising post Una atrocity case in 2016, the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), which sees the community as its core constituents, has seen its vote share go down to 0.86 per cent in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, lowest in the last three Parliamentary polls in the state. However, the party leaders in the state blame the “Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs)” and “the BJP and RSS” for the debacle.
The BSP had contested 25 out of 26 Lok Sabha seats in the state. The party was not in fray for Surat Parliamentary constituency as papers of the BSP candidate had been rejected during scrutiny. But, the BSP’s vote share of only 0.86 per cent in the state is even lower than 0.94 per cent votes, the party had garnered in the 2014 Parliamentary elections. While 0.86 per cent vote-share was higher as compared to 0.69 per cent the BSP had managed in the 2017 Assembly elections in the state, it was lower as compared to the 1.25 per cent votes the party had received in the 2012 Assembly election.\ In the 2009 General elections, the BSP had polled 1.62 per cent votes.
