In Chandigarh, the BJP missed victory by only 2,504 votes, while in Hamirpur, Uttar Pradesh, the gap was a mere 2,629 votes

This Lok Sabha election, the NDA secured 292 out of 543 seats, surpassing the majority mark by 20. However, the BJP, with 240 seats, fell short of achieving a majority on its own, a stark contrast to its stellar performances in 2014 and 2019. As we analyse the final tally of numbers and the party’s performance in close contests, it appears that an additional 609,639 votes across 32 seats could have secured a majority for the BJP.

In Chandigarh, the BJP missed victory by only 2,504 votes, while in Hamirpur, Uttar Pradesh, the gap was a mere 2,629 votes. Similar narrow defeats were seen in places like Salempur, Uttar Pradesh (3,573 votes), Dhule, Maharashtra (3,831 votes), and Dhaurahra, Uttar Pradesh (4,449 votes). These small margins collectively painted a picture of how close the party came to securing a majority on its own.

Secondly, there are a few larger margins, yet still relatively small, were seen in places like South Goa (13,535 votes), Thirupathi, Andhra Pradesh (14,569 votes), and Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala (16,077 votes).

The highest margins among these narrow losses were in constituencies such as Fatehpur, Uttar Pradesh (33,199 votes), and Kheri, Uttar Pradesh (34,329 votes). Keeping in mind the future elections, these are some of the seats, where BJP may have to convert narrow defeats into victories.
