It has been a busy couple of weeks, with elections in Bihar and Bypolls in 56 Assembly seats across 11 states.
In this episode, our resident political commentators, Aashish Chandorkar, Rohit Jayaraman, and Vivek Khaitan, discuss how these elections have panned out and their political significance. We cover the various political parties’ performance in Bihar and the future for Nitish Kumar and the NDA. We move on to BJP’s performance in Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh, and other important results in Dubbakka (Telangana), Baroda (Haryana), and RR Nagar/Sira (Karnataka) constituencies.
We end by discussing what the future holds for the Indian National Congress after yet another poor showing in stark contrast to the continued popularity the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, and the rise of All India Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul-Muslimeen or AIMIM and their consolidation of the Muslim vote bank. This is a fantastic deep dive that colors the results with rich, insightful perspectives on what these results actually mean beyond just the numbers.
