In the tumultous aftermath of the Karnataka election, many questions remain. What explains the BJP’s strong performance and the decline in Congress’s seats? What role did the JD(S) play? What is the relevance of the election for the 2019 Lok Sabha election? This event brings together experts from academia and the media to discuss these issues. The event will begin with a short data-driven presentation on the results of the Karnataka election by Neelanjan Sircar, Senior Fellow, CPR, followed by a discussion between Sreenivasan Jain, Manisha Priyam and Sugata Srinivasaraju.
This discussion is the first in a new dialogue series on Indian politics launched in a partnership between Centre for Policy Research and Trivedi Centre for Political Data (TPCD) at Ashoka University.
