Number Theory: Can BJP repeat its 2014 and 2019 clean sweep in Rajasthan?

Apr 25, 2024 08:56 AM IST

NDA’s median victory margin in Rajasthan in 2019 was 25.2% of the vote share, which is two percentage points higher than its median victory margin in 2014.

The Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP), along with its allies, won all 25 parliamentary constituencies (PCs) in Rajasthan in the 2014 and 2019 Lok Sabha elections. Can it repeat this feat in 2024 as well? Twelve out of the 25 PCs in the state have already polled in the first phase, and the remaining 13 will vote on Friday. Here are three charts which explain the factors which could play a role in the Rajasthan contest.
