All you need to know about the first phase of the 2019 General Elections

In the first phase of the General Election, 91 constituencies from Andhra Pradesh, Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Jammu and Kashmir, Maharashtra, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Odisha, Sikkim, Telangana, Tripura, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, West Bengal, Andaman and Nicobar Islands and Lakshadweep go to polls on 11th April 2019.

State Total Number of Lok Sabha seats in the state Number seats going to poll in the1st phase
Andaman & Nicobar Islands 1 1
Andhra Pradesh 25 25
Arunachal Pradesh 2 2
Assam 14 5
Bihar 40 4

Telangana 17 17
Tripura 2 1
Uttar Pradesh 80 8
Uttarakhand 5 5
West Bengal 42 2
Total 543 91


The BJP had won 31 seats from these 91 constituencies, the TDP had won 16, YSRC had won 9, the TRS had won 11 and the Congress had won 7 in the last Lok Sabha elections. The TDP and the Congress are expected to lose some seats in this phase of the election while the BJP too is likely to win zero seats from Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, two states from where it had won 4 seats in 2014. The YSRC is expected to make significant gains in Andhra whereas in Telangana, the TRS is expected to win the overwhelming majority of the seats.

The BJP is expected to register a tough competition in the four seats in Odisha and the two in West Bengal where the party will go head to head against the BJP and TMC respectively. BJP and its allies are also expected to turn around the NDA’s fortunes in Meghalaya, Mizoram and Manipur. In Assam, the BJP is expected to retain the seats it had won last time around although it’s unclear the impact the Citizenship Amendment Bill will have in these constituencies. In Tripura, the BJP is expected to win the Constituency after registering a thumping victory in the last Assembly Elections in the state.

In Bastar, Chhattisgarh, the Congress is expected to win where the BJP had secured a victory in 2014. In Uttar Pradesh, Kairana will witness the most significant battle, a constituency where the BJP had lost the bypolls only last year. In Bihar, the NDA is expected to win at least 3 seats in the first phase. In Maharashtra, the NDA appears to be on the ascendancy. In Uttarakhand, where the BJP had won all 5 seats in 2014, there’s a strong possibility that it will repeat its performance this time around as well.

The two seats in West Bengal, the four in Odisha and Kairana in UP will be the main battles in the first phase of the 2019 General Elections.
