1985 General (Lok Sabha) Election Results India


India General or the 8th Lok Sabha Election Results - 1985

The Lok Sabha elections in the two states of Punjab and Assam were not held in 1984 (8th Lok Sabha Election). They were delayed due to the ongoing terrorist activities in the states. Therefore Elections were held in these states in 1985. In Punjab, the Congress party managed to get only 6 Lok Sabha seats out of 13. The Akali Dal came out impressively by winning 7 seats. The Congress was now prepared if it were to face the defeat in Assam. The party got only four seats out of the 14.
