Amethi Election Result Analysis

As the people's mandate together resonated around a dwindling presence of the Congress in the general elections 2014, one of the star constituencies this election season was the Congress bastion of Rahul Gandhi. Gandhi, the Congress Vice-President, remained the sitting member of Parliament from Amethi for the last decade, before which his mother, Congress President Sonia Gandhi represented this seat.

Even more significant is the fact that Rahul's father and former Prime Minister of India, Rajiv Gandhi represented Amethi for more than a decade, beginning in the 1980s. In other words therefore, in the democratic setup that independent India presented, Amethi has been a symbolism of the Gandhi dynastic lineage. Yet this seat came under severe threat while the counting of votes for the 2014 general elections was underway.

Gandhi won the Amethi seat (408651 votes) defeating his closest rival Smriti Irani (300748 votes) of the BJP by only a vote margin of 1.07 lakh votes. Rahul Gandhi was trailing behind Irani during the initial rounds of counting, before he thrust back and finally won the seat. Analysing the trend of voting that this Congress-stronghold presented, one must begin to ask some serious questions beyond the narrow narrative of Rahul Gandhi's victory from Amethi.

The reason behind Congress apprehension and fear in winning Amethi

Amethi and Congress have been synonymous in the history of independent India.

Yet, the surging Modi wave which hit every nook and corner of the country, also very evidently, hit the Congress hard. People's disgust with the Congress governance and their mastery in corruption at every level, went hand in hand with the Modi euphoria. The most populous state of Uttar Pradesh, of which Amethi is a part, handed BJP its mandate in 71 out of the 80 constituencies. In the 2009 elections, the BJP-led NDA had managed a mere 10 seats in Uttar Pradesh. This growing faith that people have attested in Modi is simultaneous with the faith people lost in the Congress. The Congress performance in Amethi, their star constituency, was thus sure to take a backseat.

The main issues in Amethi as echoed by the populace there are the lack of development in this Congress bastion, since independence-the lack of proper roads and safe drinking water, deplorable housing conditions, zero infrastructural facilities in education and health in this constituency, even though the Congress claims to hold it as high priority. Rahul Gandhi's win from Amethi this time, by a margin so sleek, is really not a win for the Congress as a whole; it is, in some senses, an insult to the Congress Vice-President's appeal of votes on grounds of dynastic legacy. Thus, the fierce fight that BJP candidate Smriti Irani put up, does not come as a surprise. In a constituency where Congress win by the largest vote margins, has traditionally been seen as inevitable, the Amethi results have only necessitated the need for deep introspection within the Congress.

What do the numbers indicate?

As per the reports of the Election Commission of India, the high-profile constituency of Amethi registered extremely low voter-turnouts. The average voter turnout in UP was 58.29 %, which in itself was very low, compared to the average voter turnout percentage in the rest of the country. What is even more shocking is the voter turnout percentage in the high-profile constituency of Amethi.

While a bitter battle in Amethi ensued between Rahul Gandhi, Smriti Irani and AAP's Kumar Vishwas, the turnout in this constituency was a mere 52.44 percent, a little more than half the voter count. Can this poor voter turnout in Amethi be attributed to the sway of the saffron brigade in Uttar Pradesh? Clearly not.

As is clear, the Congress has lost its credibility among the voters. Voters in Amethi have refused to come out and vote in large numbers, although the 'Modi wave' had engulfed the nation. This is because the expectations of the voters had not been met by the Congress, for more than six decades post independence. Congress, especially in Amethi has failed miserably to retain its unsurpassable accountability which it once enjoyed. Even the talk of an alternative in the name of Modi could not encourage people in Amethi to exercise their adult suffrage in huge numbers. This is a singular failure of Rahul Gandhi in particular, and the Congress as a whole. The narrow win in Amethi must not be celebrated. The Gandhis should, instead, reflect upon their political presence in the country, and definitely in Amethi.
