HOW BJP DISTORTS ELECTION RESULTS WITH THE HELP OF CORPORATE MEDIA

EVEN before the counting of votes for UP municipal elections start coming out on 1st December, the corporate channels had started flashing Breaking News that BJP is sweeping the polls. On 2nd morning most of the corporate newspapers wrote that BJP has swept 14 out of 16 mayors posts, but most of them did not give details of results to other seats. The UP Election Commission’s statement shows that BJP’s victory was mostly limited to mayors’ elections where EVMs were used, but overall its performance is much below the State assembly elections! We are giving below report written by Amresh Mishra from facebooks to see the full results which can be verified by all from Election Commission’s website.

BJP has taken a solid punch. UP has thrown them out but media would have you believe it otherwise. Full and final, real results of UP local body elections.

Indepents win 225 seats out of 652 and emerged as the single largest group... BJP loses the status of being even the single largest party...

This infinitely, is a bigger scam than demonetisation, selling India to Ambani, Adani, foreign nations and foreign capital. This is a bigger scam than Modi drinking tea with Nawaz Sharif in a blatant act of cynicism when our Jawans were being killed at the order. You must have heard of booth capturing, rigging etc; but how would you term an electoral exercise where the real results are hidden from the public — part is presented as whole... Where a parallel false ‘Reality’ is created to counter the ‘Real Reality’.

BJP’s measly, victory of the gutter, just 14 out 16 in urban hubs, is being presented as a victory! Where is Shekhar Gupta, where is Prakash Bhanu Mehta, where is Abhisar Sharma, where is that... that... man... Prannoy Roy.... where is Rajdeep Sardesai...where is Arvind Kejriwal...where is Radhika Ramseshan, where is Burkha Dutt...where is Abhisar Sharma... where the hell are u guys hiding? What are you guys afraid of?

None of you have had the guts to at least present real facts of UP civic polls before the people.

Yesterday(on the day of UP local body election result), the entire day, media kept raping facts... kept showing that BJP has won 14 out of 16 Municipal elections. Not a word about results of Nagar Parishad and Nagar Panchayat!

Indian Express, Times of India, Hindustan Times, Tribune, Dainik Jaran, Aaj Tak, Zee, NDTV, CNN-IBN, and yes, first post, second post, third post—

I call out for justice... here are the real figures:

Nagar Panchayat (Town Area) Presidents: 438/438 — Independents: 182, BJP: 100, SP: 83, BSP: 45, Congress: 17, AAP: 2, Rashtriya Janata Dal: 2, Rashtriya Lok Dal: 3, AIMM: 1, AIFB: 1, Unrecognised Party: 2

Nagar Palika Parishad (City Municipal Council) Presidents : 198/198 — BJP: 70, SP: 45, Independents: 43, BSP: 29, Congress: 9, CPI: 1, and Ad hoc registered party: 1

Nagar Nigam (City Municipal Corporation) President: 16 — BJP: 14, BSP: 2

WAIT... the best is yet to come... Out of 652 seats in the Corporation Councils, BJP gets 184 seats... and who gets the maximum? Bloody hell! It is the Independents!!!!

Indendents win 225 seats out of 652 and emerged as single largest!, SP emerges as the third party with 128 seats out of 652...

BSP emerges in the fourth position with 76 seats out of 652... again, BSP has re-gained some of its Dalit votes... but overall, sliding behind SP must have given it cold comfort...

Now, let us see the voting pattern: Out of a total population of 22 Crores, 8 Crores were eligible to vote in the 3 tiers...

Polling was 52.4% ... again, roughly, a little over 4 Crore votes were polled...

2.65 Crore votes were polled in 438 Nagar Panchayats, 35 Lakh in 16 Corporations, 1 Crore in 198 Nagar Palika Parishads...

BJP winning 14 out of 16 Corporations...in all 16 seats, BJP scored 87% votes...BSP 12.5%...

So 87% of 35 Lakh would be close to 30 Lakhs...

In Nagar Palika Parishad, 70 seats got by BJP fetched it 35.5% of the vote...SP polled 22.5 % and BSP 14.65% while Congress polled 4.5%...Independents polled 21.72% of the votes polled...35.5% votes polled by BJP in Nagar Palika Parishad out of a total of 1 crore votes, amounts to 35 lakhs...

In the 2.65 crore votes polled in Nagar Panchayats, BJP with just 100 seats out of 438 could manage only 22% of the vote! In this segment, Independents polled 41.55% of the votes...SP polled 18.95% and BSP polled 10.27%...Congress vote share stood at 3.88%...

Now how much is 22% of 2.5 crores? Around 58 Lakhs... and how much 41.55% of 2.5 crore votes? 1.7 Cr....So, in toto, BJP polled 1,23,00,000 votes out of 40000000... how much is that in percentage terms? 30%!!!!!!!!! In 2017 assembly elections, BJP polled 42% of the vote. It had swept rural areas. Now its share has come down to 30%!

This is my challenge; If elections are held today in UP, BJP will get 30-24 seats. And between 158-162 assembly seats! That’s it ... Now if the same thing is going to play out in Gujarat. If BJP is polint 30-33% vote in Gujarat ... which means it will come down to below 60

...With few exceptions, BJP lost entire seats in Nagar Panchayats in Basti, Gonda, Chitrokoot, Allahabad, Mirzapur, Barabanki, Azamgarh, Jaunpur, Kausambi, Fatehpur, Farukkhabad, Firozabad on and on... Amethi was with BJP last time also... no big deal... This loss is a fatal blow for Yogi.... imagine BJP trailing behind Independents... the latter trend opens the flood gates for the rise of new forces in UP! 
