Narendra Modi, Rahul Gandhi, Akhilesh Yadav

The Congress-led Bharatiya Janata Party defeated the BJP-led NDA in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections in Uttar Pradesh. All the parties in the state had arranged the political chessboard in their own way and distributed tickets on the basis of caste. SP chief Akhilesh Yadav has defeated the NDA from all sides with his PDA (Backward-Dalit-Minority) formula, while all the BJP’s social engineering has come to nothing this time. Congress’ support and SP’s PDA move proved to be a hit for the Bharat Alliance and a superhit for the OBC community.

This time BJP expressed confidence in upper caste candidates in the Lok Sabha elections while SP expressed confidence in non-Yadav, OBC and Dalit candidates. That is why upper caste MPs of BJP have been elected the most in UP while OBC MPs of SP have been able to win. This time the Dalit MPs have managed to win more from the India Alliance than from the NDA. In Uttar Pradesh, the number of Thakur MPs has declined, while Brahmin MPs have maintained their numbers. Although the state managed to win five Muslim Lok Sabha MPs, the number of Dalit MPs has increased while it has decreased compared to last time.

This time 23 upper caste MPs have been elected from UP, out of which 15 have been elected from NDA and 8 from India Alliance. Among upper castes, Brahmins have won the most, while among OBC castes, Kurmi MPs have managed to win, if we look at Dalits, MPs from the Pasi community have been elected the most while the number of Jats has declined.

35 MPs from the OBC community have been elected in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, most of them from India Alliance. 13 OBC MPs have been elected from the BJP-led NDA, while 23 have been elected from the Indian Alliance.

Uttar Pradesh has 17 reserved Lok Sabha seats, of which 16 seats are reserved for Scheduled Castes (Dalits) and one seat is reserved for Scheduled Tribes. This time more Dalits have become MPs from reserved seats. 17 Dalit MPs have been elected in the state, including seven from the BJP, seven from the SP, one from the Congress and one from the Azad Samaj Party.

Ashraf dominates Muslim MPs

Five Muslim Lok Sabha MPs have been elected in Uttar Pradesh this time, less than in the 2019 elections. Ashraf (upper caste Muslims) dominate among Muslim MPs who won this time. These five Muslim MPs have won from India Alliance, four from SP and one from Congress. Among the Muslim MPs who won from SP were Afzal Ansari from Ghazipur seat, Mohibullah from Rampur, Ziaur Rahman from Sambhal and Iqra Hasan Chaudhary from Kairana. Imran Masood has won from Saharanpur seat on Congress ticket. Thus, out of the five MPs won from the Bharat coalition, four MPs are Ashraf i.e. upper caste Muslims while Iqra Hasan Chaudhary is the only backward Muslim. Congress fielded two tickets, in which Kunwar lost to Danish Ali Amroha. He is also an Ashraf Muslim.

UP’s 20 percent Muslim community is also divided into two groups, Ashraf and Pasmanda Muslims. Even though 80 percent of Muslims are Pasmandas and about 20 percent Ashraf Muslims, 80 percent Ashraf and 20 percent Pasmandas are among the Muslim MPs who will win the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. That is why political parties give special importance to Ashraf Muslims while giving tickets to Muslims.
