There has never been a party to win the Mirzapur Lok Sabha seat thrice in its history

New Delhi, 29th March.
Throughout history, no political party has been able to win three straight elections from the Uttar Pradesh Lok Sabha seat of Mirzapur. The five Lok Sabha assembly seats—Chhanwe, Mirzapur, Manjhwa, Chunar, and Madihan—have all been taken over by the BJP and its allies thanks to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision. Anupriya Patel, a Union Minister and current MP, has a chance to make history in this circumstance. From Congressman John N. Wilson, the first MP to be elected from the Mirzapur seat, to Phoolan Devi, the bandit beauty, Aziz Imam, Virendra Singh, and Umakant Mishra have also been elected from this seat.

The party achieved two victories. On the ticket of Congress, John N. Wilson won the first general election of the nation in 1952 and the second in 1957. By winning this weaker section, Dalit, and tribal-dominated parliamentary seat in 1962, Pt. Shyamdhar Mishra of the Congress upheld the party’s hegemony. Congress lost the seat to Jan Sangh’s Vansh Narayan Singh in 1967. Aziz Imam of Congress once more placed this seat in the party coffers during the subsequent general elections in 1971. After that, there was a state of emergency, and the Janata Party’s Fakir Ali Ansari won in 1977. However, the Janata Party was unable to hold onto the seat.

Once again elected as an MP, Aziz Imam served as Congress’s leader when it reconvened in 1980 under Indira Gandhi. In the subsequent year’s by-election, Congressman Umakant Mishra emerged victorious. Umakant Mishra was elected to the legislature twice, in 1984. In the Vishwanath Pratap Singh wave of 1989, Yusuf Beg of the Janata Dal was elected as an MP from this area. The Ram Mandir movement then gained momentum, and in 1991 Virendra Singh was elected as the BJP’s MP for this seat. Phoolan Devi, a local bandit queen, was fielded by SP supporter Mulayam Singh Yadav in 1996 and went on to become an MP. Virendra Singh of the BJP stole this seat from the SP when elections were held again after a two-year interval. Afterwards, Ramrati Bind was elected as a Member of Parliament in 2002. The BSP’s Narendra Kushwaha won the 2004 election as an MP. In 2009, Bal Kumar Patel of the SP and Ramesh Dubey of the SP were elected as MPs.

Following this, Anupriya Patel of Apna Dal Sonelal won this seat in 2014 and 2019 during the Modi wave. Anupriya Patel of the BJP alliance received 5 lakh 91 thousand 564 votes in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, even after the alliance of the SP and BSP. Lalitesh Pati Tripathi, the candidate for the Congress, is only expected to receive 91,501 votes, while Ramcharitra Nishad, the candidate for the SP-BSP alliance, is expected to receive 3,59,556,556 votes. In this election, Anupriya Patel received 53.34% of the vote. Anupriya Patel received 4,36,536 votes in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, or 42.32% of the total. Samudra Bind of the BSP received 2,17,457 votes, or roughly 21.58 %, to come in second. Laliteshpati Tripathi of the Congress came in third. With 1,52,666 votes cast, Lalitesh received 15.15% of the total.
