Another upset: Jyotiraditya Scindia trailing badly at Guna and presumably defeated. Elsewhere in the state, Chhindwara continues its unique record of unbroken Congress victories at General Elections,* though with a new candidate (Kamal Nath's son rather than the man himself this time) it was close.

*It was once lost at a by-election so not quite unbroken representation.

Honestly, the takeaway from this election should be that ~75% of votes were cast for one of the two main alliances. I don't think anything like that has ever happened, except when the Janata party rose to oppose Indria, and even then it was a unique circumstance. Its also the clearest sign that:

-We are in a new political era
-The FPTP squeeze is coming for india
-Localists need to start picking sides.

Actually one huge factor in what has just happened appears to be that a lot of alliances between opposition parties backfired big time, to the benefit of the BJP. With the exception of the BSP they would probably all have won more seats had they run alone.

The humiliation of Congress Princelings (literally in the one case lmao) is a theme: not only Rahul G. - Lord High Emperor of Failsons - doing the most Rahul G. thing ever and losing at Amethi, but see also the results at Guna and Rohtak.

You mean 2019, not 2018, right?

Just a typo, yes. But as it's a provisional map I won't correct it - well, I will, but only when I remove the note that the map is provisional as well.

So is this a symptom of the caste system itself being less relevant? Could this portend a post-caste India? After all, I note that Modi seems to have promised a lot more AA based on wealth rather than caste ("there are only two castes") - should we read anything deeper in this?

No. What is true is that the very specific sort of caste grievance politics that emerged after the Mandal Commission is floundering (but then it was five years ago as well: the RJD getting shut out isn't any more obviously symbolic than the same happening to the BSP), but that isn't the same thing as caste politics. Note that the SP polled poorly because much of their base was unhappy with the alliance with the BSP; this is pure caste politics.

I'm a bit wary of saying that India's in the midst of transitioning to a national two-party/two-alliance system

Yeah, there's absolutely no evidence for this whatsoever. In fact there's only evidence of one thing: a BJP landslide. Turning that into POLARISATION is a big, big reach.

As you can see, Congress managed to squeak out a late gain: the Andaman and Nicobar Islands.
