LS Polls

The Prakash Ambedkar led party had fielded its candidates in all the 48 Lok Sabha constituencies and damaged the victory prospects of its rivals in at least 36 constituencies.

It was not the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) that dented the victory march of political parties in the just concluded Lok Sabha elections, actually it was the Vanchit Bahujan Aghadi (VBA) floated by Bharipa-Bahujan Mahasangh leader Prakash Ambedkar that played the spoil sport for other political parties in the state. It did play a spoil sport for the Congress in Nanded, Solapur and Akola, for the Shiv Sena in Aurangabad and Swabhimani Shetkari Party leader Raju Shetti in Hatkanangle. At the same time the votes it polled also helped the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Nagpur and Sangli and damaged its prospects in Chandrapur Lok Sabha constituency

Overall the VBA secured a vote share of about 7.60 percent in this Lok Sabha elections. Besides this the VBA also damaged the prospects of Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and Congress in Beed, Bhandara-Gondiya, Bhiwandi, Madha and Mumbai North-Central. The VBA had fielded its candidates in all the 48 Lok Sabha constituencies and damaged the victory prospects of its rivals in at least 36 constituencies. This prospects raise a scary picture for its rivals for the ensuing Assembly elections due in September-October.

In the final share of votes polled by the political parties that won seats in this Lok Sabha elections, the BJP polled 27.59 percent and won 23 seats, the Shiv Sena polled 23.29 percent votes and won 18 seats, the Congress polled 16.27 percent and won just 1 seat, MIM which polled 0.72 percent votes won 1 seat, the NCP which polled 15.52 percent votes won 4 seats and Others (Independent) who polled 14.55 percent votes won 1 seat. What is interesting to note here that in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections the BJP had secured 27.56 percent and won 23 seats, Congress had polled 18.29 percent votes and won 2 seats, the NCP which had polled 16.12 percent votes had won 4 seats, the Sena which secured 20.82 percent vote share won 18 seats and Others (Swabhimani Paksha) who had secured 3.27 percent and won 1 seat.
