How voters of India got smarter this time?This time Indian people have voted removing aside the narrative of the caste and communal politics which has dominated north India's politics for so long. In Uttar Pradesh where most of the candidates fielded by BSP-SP coalition was based on just caste or religion bases faced defeat.
On the other hand, fielded candidates without any consideration of cast as many of the candidates belong to either upper castes or non Yadav communities and they still won the seats from places which were considered to be voting on the basis of caste. Also, the coalition of SP-BSP didn't release any manifesto the whole idea of their election was based on caste- narrative while BJP manifesto did have various issues which touched the people.
Above all, for the first time India saw highest voter turnout and in that too the women turn out of women was more than men in this election who have voted for the BJP because they know the government's work for women empowerment.
So the situation is changing in the country people are voting for they want not on the basis of ideology or their personal gains which is often a facade used by political parties to capture the people's attention.
