Who is Professor Chandan Gowda?
In the 2023 Karnataka Assembly election, Congress won handily on the back of anti-incumbent sentiment. The party won 135 seats, an increase of 55 seats from the previous state elections, comfortably surpassing the midpoint of 113. On the other hand, the Bharatiya Janata party ran a campaign focused on Hindutva, Hijab bans and “Double Engine Sarkar “. that translated into significant losses in its southern stronghold and a meager 66 seats, 38 fewer than in the previous election. To better understand the wave of Congress and the BJP setback in the Deccan state, The Quint met with Chandan Gowda, Ramakrishna Hegde Professor at the Institute for Social and Economic Change, Bangalore. These are his key ideas.
The Lingayats in Mumbai, Karnataka come first. With the exception of one, which went to JD(S), Congress won all 15 scheduled tribal constituencies. It is obvious that the lingayats in the reserved seats of the ST, who have a lot of influence in all these areas and influence the election results, have sided with the Congress party. Second, many Vokkaligas in the Old Mysore area that had recently come to prefer JD(S) to Congress have switched to Congress. Congress then won landslides in the Old Mysore region, as elsewhere, thanks to a stronger than ever consolidation of Muslim support behind the party.
Furthermore, it does not appear that the Dalit vote was split between the left and right Dalit communities which were predicted to help the BJP win several of the SC reserved seats. The Congress party now controls a sizeable portion of SC’s reserved constituencies. Siddaramaiah’s appeal has also helped the Congress party to mobilize the various backward caste sections. Nearly every locality has given Congress a greater share of their support than ever before. If Prime Minister Modi had skipped his rallies and roadshows, the BJP’s performance may have been considerably worse. Despite claims to the contrary, his rallies may have helped the BJP perform more impressively.
