LiveMint logoLiveMint 11-03-2017 howindialives.com

At 3 pm, three states have been settled. But the fight is still open in two states, one of them being Goa. In the 40-member assembly, the BJP is down from 21 seats to 14 wins/leads, ceding ground to the Congress and other parties. Here are three pockets where the BJP has seen a fall over 2012.

Rural seats (3/12)

In the 12 assembly constituencies where the rural population was above 56%, the BJP has seen its count drop from 8 in 2012 to 3 this time. Those gaining included the Congress (from 3 to 5), Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (2 seats) and independents (2 seats).

Poor-amenities seats (3/12)

There are 12 assembly constituencies in Goa where 22% households or more don’t receive drinking water inside their houses. The BJP’s count in such seats fell from 9 to 3.

‘Richer’ households (3/12)

In the 13 Goa constituencies where the percentage of ‘richer households’—defined as households who, under Census 2011, were recorded as owning a motorised two-wheeler/four-wheeler, TV set, computer and phone—was above 25%, the BJP bettered its 2012 showing (from 5 seats to 6 seats). But in the 12 constituencies where such households made up less than 18%, the BJP’s count fell from 9 to3.
