Pune's Racial Violence will Impact 2019 Lok Sabha Election?


IndiaNewsonWeb: 03 Jan, 2018, After Mumbai, Maharashtra second largest city Pune is in the grip of violence. The capital of the Maratha Empire, Pune, 200 years ago in the 21st century, there has been a prejudice of racial violence, which was fought with the British who made India slaves. That war Brahmin Peshwa Bajirao fought with the British against his army, but Dalits in the East India Company's division were also fighting against Peshwa. The claim that the Dalits had defeated Peshwa in that battle in 1818 and that was celebrated on 1 January, when the Dalits and Marathas were again brought face to face.

This tension has emerged between the two bigger castes of Maharashtra when the news of the 2019 general election is over. All regional parties including BJP and Congress have started work on Mission 2019. In this case, this racial violence may also have an impact in the forthcoming 2019 Lok Sabha elections.

Political Equation

About 12 percent of the population in the province is dalit. While talking about tribals and Dalits, both of them have about 19 percent of the population. 18 out of 48 Lok Sabha seats in the state have Dalit influence. When it comes to 2014 Lok Sabha elections, the BJP won 23 of the 48 seats. While Shiv Sena got 18 seats, Congress 2, NCP 4 and Swabhiman Party's 1 seat.

Racial Equation

In Maharashtra, if caste equation is mainly seen, then there are Muslim voters in addition to Brahmin, OBC, Maratha Kumbi, Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes. According to media reports, in the 2014 Lok Sabha, BJP got 27.6 percent votes with 23 seats. The highest number of them was 52 percent higher caste votes. With this, about 38 per cent OBC, 33 per cent ST, 19 per cent SC and Maratha got 24 per cent votes.

At the same time, Shiv Sena, who got 20.8 percent votes with 18 seats, got the highest Maratha votes. While Congress had the highest Muslim vote and Dalit vote in the account. Congress got only 2 seats and 18.3 percent of votes went to his account. Dalit vote was more than 40 percent in this. However, it was estimated to get Maratha votes about 10 percent. The NCP got 16.1 percent of the vote with 4 seats. In this fifty percent of the votes were considered as Marathas and Dalits.

In 2014, where BJP got a big share of OBC votes with upper castes. At the same time, the Dalit voters too had trusted Modi in large numbers.

After that, in the assembly elections held in the same year, the public convinced the BJP and the Shiv Sena alliance and reached the peak of power. But since the formation of the government, the incidents of Maratha agitation, farmers' agitation, Shiv Sena's resentment and oppression of Dalits came to light regarding reservations. In July 2016, there was an incident of targeting a Dalit against a girl in Pune, targeting the Dalits. On the issue of reservations, there has been a tension between the two racial communities.

Now again Pune has been fluttering in the fire of racial violence and politics has started on this. Congress President Rahul Gandhi, along with BSP supremo Mayawati, including Jignesh Mayawani, who fought the fight for the Dalits in Gujarat, all the anti-BJP parties and the camps are giving a big boost to this fight. Rahul has suddenly tweeted the allegation of suppressing the Dalits on the BJP. Mayawati is also surrounded BJP on the incident of Bhima Koregaon. It is believed that if the Rahul and the Opposition are able to manipulate the dalits, then these wages can prove to be a major setback for the BJP in 2019.
