Coming to the Lok Sabha elections, the third Lok Sabha election was held in 1962, and the Indian National Congress (INC) emerged as the winning party. The INC continued to be in power for the next two terms - 1967 and 1971. In the sixth Lok Sabha elections held in 1977, Bharatiya Lok Dal came to power. The next election held in 1980, saw the INC come back to power. The party clinched a victory in the eighth Lok Sabha elections too. The ninth Lok Sabha elections saw the Janata Dal come to power.
