The Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) was riding the Modi wave and thus, could cash in votes from National Capital Territory in the Lok Sabha elections in 2014. The Union Territory of Delhi consists of seven Lok Sabha seats. The BJP managed to sweep all the seats from here in 2014. But it seems that it is not going to be a cake's walk for the saffron party this time. Certainly, Arvind Kejriwal is the biggest ...Read More

Unlike Uttar Pradesh, all is well for the Congress and Mahagathbandhan in Bihar and Jharkhand. The confusion in the non-BJP camp is partly due to the lack of appreciation at this time, while the contrasting picture of synergy among them in Bihar and Jharkhand is driven by an acknowledgement of each other’s mutual interests. There is no denying the fact that state-level alliances will hold the key in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. In Uttar ...Read More

On record, this government has seen lesser communal disturbances in its present tenure. Yet a section of civil society and public intellectuals have again been explicitly critical of the BJP’s policies and may have created a chink in BJP’s consolidated Hindu vote armor. Two Bharat ...Read More

Bengaluru Karnataka Region Map

Bengaluru Karnataka


Bangalore Karnataka was a part of the Princely State of Mysore under the Wodeyars during the British rule. Bengaluru region has been a Congress bastion since Independence, but in the recent years the people of the region have voted for candidates that can work for the development of the region and issues related to day-to-day life. Bengaluru Karnataka comprises the present day districts of Bengaluru Urban and Bengaluru Rural.

Historical Background

Bangalore Karnataka has a rich and complex history, while the Kempe Gowda I laid the foundation of western front of the city in 1537, the eastern front of present-day Bengaluru was built by the British administration in the beginning of the nineteenth century, after British forces moved to make the city a cantonment. The city developed parallel to each other, while British administration looked after the eastern city, the old city developed by Kempe Gowda I remained under the Princely State of Mysore and became its capital, after India gained Independence. Bengaluru was made the capital of the state of Mysore in 1956, when several other Kannada dominated regions were integrated to the Princely State of Mysore, with the passage of State Reorganisation Act. In 1986, Bangalore was divided into two parts: Bangalore Urban and Bangalore Rural for better administration. The development of Bengaluru has been on an upward trajectory ever since the time of IT-revolution in India, with the Government of India ushering in reforms in the telecom sector and pushed for development of IT sector in India. Bengaluru has since, gone onto achieve great success in the field of IT, thus, labelling the capital of Karnataka as "Silicon Valley of India".

Political Scenario

The Indian National Congress was the dominant party in the Bangalore Karnataka region till the beginning of 1980s, but since then, the people of Bangalore have elected their leaders wisely, based on their performance and what they have to offer to the urban population of the region. Since the rise of BJP in Karnataka, the Hindu majority population in the region has shown its support for the party for its "Hindutva brand" of politics. While Congress and JD(S) have a significant grip on the minority population of Bangalore region consisting of Muslims, Christians, and Jains.

Issues pertaining to the region

The rapid urbanisation and growing population due to workforce migration has seen Bengaluru face issues that are part of fast-growing cities in developing countries. Problems such as mass displacement, increasing slum settlements, health epidemics, and pollution, have become commonn for people living in the Bangalore Karnataka region. According to a recent report, Bengaluru is set to join Cape Town in terms of water shortage, as the city looks to be on the verge of "Day Zero", when the taps and other water sources in the city will run out of water. Sewage and drains are choked up in the region, as local authorities and government have time and again failed to restructure the water usage in the city and sewage management.
