Prof K Nageshwar: Has BJP benefitted from MIM in Bihar? (Video)

            BJP   ? || Has BJP benefitted from MIM in Bihar?|| 

One of the surprise packages in the Bihar Assembly elections has been the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM), which won five seats in the Seemanchal region.

However, the AIMIM's success also came with accusations that it has served as 'BJP's B-Team' and caused the defeat of Mahagathbandhan candidates in a number of seats. Several people on social media even claimed that AIMIM has enabled NDA to win as many as 10 seats.

Why is a Party Accused of Being a Vote-Cutter?
Basically, a party is accused of becoming a vote-cutter if it secures more votes than the margin of defeat in a particular seat and if its base is similar to that of the defeated candidate.

 

For instance, LJP chief Chirag Paswan openly said that his aim was to defeat the JD(U).
n 33 seats, it was found that the LJP polled more votes than the JD(U)'s margin of defeat. Since the LJP fielded a number of candidates with a BJP background, this was considered a way of preventing the transfer of BJP votes to its alliance partner, the JD(U).

So has the AIMIM done the same to the Mahagathbandhan?

The assumption is that since the AIMIM mostly raises Muslims concerns, it is targeting Muslim votes that have been the vote bank of parties like the RJD and the Congress.

This article will try to answer this question by examining the AIMIM's performance in the 20 seats it contested and whether it polled more votes than the Mahagathbandhan's margin of defeat.
