Q. 114.0( 4 Votes )

Prove by giving example that is not the caste, but other factors matter in electoral politics.

Answer :

Yes, it is true that caste plays an important role in politics or in electoral politics but there are various other factors that matter in electoral politics such as –

• There is not even a single parliamentary constituency in the country that has a majority based on single caste. This implies that to win the elections every candidate and party has to win the confidence of more than one caste or community.


• There is no such party that wins the vote of all the voters of the single caste or community. When the term ‘vote bank’ is used with reference to caste, it means the maximum number of votes getting from the voters of all the caste or community.


• Many political parties choose their candidates from the caste that is believed to dominate the electorate in a particular constituency. Some voters have many candidates standing in elections from their caste while many voters have no candidate from their caste.


• If it is believed that all castes and communities have their strong political preferences than no ruling party and the sitting MP or MLA lose elections frequently in our country.


People have an attachment to the political party more than their caste and community. Thus, other factors also dominated in electoral politics and not just the caste.
