Bijapur Lok Sabha Elections and Results 2014

The Bijapur Lok Sabha constituency in Karnataka is reserved for candidates belonging to the Scheduled Castes. As one of the 28 Lok Sabha segments of this state, Bijapur is located in the historically prominent district of Bijapur. The Bijapur Parliamentary constituency (constituency number 4) has a total of 1,373,604 electorates out of which 662,782 are females and 710,822 are males according to Election Commission of India 2009 reports. Ruled by the Adil Shah dynasty, Bijapur was one of the five splinter states of the Bahamani Sultanate in 1518. Bijapur then passed into the hands of the Nizam of Hyderabad, who set up his own independent kingdom there, before being annexed by the mighty Marathas.

In the Third Anglo-Maratha War between the British and the Marathas, the kingdom of Bijapur was finally made a part of the British dominion. Bijapur thus inherits a prominent historical legacy spanning across centuries. The city of Bijapur is the administrative headquarters of the eponymous district. With a population of 2,175,102, as per the 2011 Census records, this district primarily has an agricultural economy. Farming is the main occupation, and crops such as grapes, guava, lime and pomegranate are grown, besides commercial crops such as sugarcane and cotton.
