How BJP+ went from 65 seats to 88 seats in Rajya Sabha in 4 years
The BJP’s fast-expanding electoral footprint in the country has helped increase its share of Rajya Sabha seats from 27% in 2014 to 36% now
In May 2014, when the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) returned to power at the centre after a decade, one of the hurdles it faced in passing legislation and controlling the political narrative was its minority presence in the Rajya Sabha.
It has made steady gains since, on the back of going from ruling nine states to 20 now, either by itself or through a partner party. From 27% of seats, it now holds 36%, following the latest round of Rajya Sabha elections.
