He was compared to former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi in May 2014, when Narendra Modi became the Prime Minister and after that when the BJP or its allies were forming governments in the states. When the BJP won in Gujarat and Himachal in December 2017, Prime Minister Modi had proudly said in a parliamentary party meeting, 'When Indira Gandhi was in power, the Congress government was in 18 states (although at that time the Congress was in 17 states ), But when we are in power, our government is in 19 states.
When Modi said this, in the next three months i.e. by March 2018, BJP had reached 21 states. This was the BJP's peak. At that time, the government of BJP and its allies was ruling over 70% of the country's population. If Union Territory is also included in this, then this figure goes beyond 71%. The BJP and its allies occupied 80% of the area.
BJP lost 4 big states in two and a half years, barely got power in three
The BJP's vizierath began to halt from Karnataka from March 2018 onwards. Elections were held in Karnataka in May 2018. Yeddyurappa of BJP also took oath, but had to resign due to lack of majority. However, within a year, some MLAs of Congress and Janata Dal (Secular) joined BJP. Then the BJP was able to return to Karnataka.
Similarly, when the assembly elections were held in December 2018 in Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan, these three states slipped out of the hands of the BJP. In March 2020, as soon as 22 Congress MLAs of the Congress entered Karnataka in Madhya Pradesh, the BJP was able to return after 15 months. In October 2019, the BJP also lost in Haryana. Later he saved the government with the help of Dushyant Chautala's Jananayak Janata Party.
In the last two and a half years, the BJP has lost four major states. This includes Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan, Maharashtra and Jharkhand.
At present, NDA government in 17 states, BJP CM or Deputy CM in 14
The BJP and its allies currently have governments in 17 states. Of these, BJP has a CM in 13 states, while one has a deputy CM. These 17 states account for 49% of the country's population. At the same time, in terms of area, BJP and its allies are on 52% of the area.
At the time of Indira Gandhi, there were Congress governments in 17 states of the country.
The first general election after independence was held in 1951-52. From independence to 1967, there were simultaneous Lok Sabha and Assembly elections in the country. Till 1967, there was no other option in the country other than the Congress. Therefore, the Congress was ruled over the entire country in a way. In 1951-52, the Congress was in the center as well as in 21 states of the country.
However, at that time the country had become independent and many princely states were not included. In 1967, the Congress was challenged for the first time. Then the Congress was reduced to 11 states. However, the Congress was again strengthened in 1971 under Indira Gandhi. The Congress was then in 17 states. Congress held 88% of the country's population and 94% of the area.
At present, the government of Congress and its allies is in only 5 states and one union territory. The Congress is on its own only in Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh and Punjab. The rest are allies in government in Maharashtra and Jharkhand. The Congress and the DMK are in the Union Territory of Puducherry.
