The phrase vote-bank politics; coined by the BJP (Bhartiya Janata Party), the Hindutva Party is now used by all political parties. Every party has evolved combination of caste and religious groups to win electoral battles. The BJP itself has its upper and OBC caste groups and wins elections on that basis though it accuses Congress of indulging in vote-bank politics. It accuses the Congress of appeasement of Muslims to get their votes at the cost of Hindus. Such accusations appeal to a section of Hindus who then vote for the BJP. SO THIS PHRASE HAS HELPED BJP TO INCREASE ITS VOTE SHARE ?
