State two reasons to say that caste alone cannot determine election results in India.
- No party wins the votes of all the voters of a caste or community. When people say that caste is a ‘vote bank’ of one party, it usually means that a large proportion of voters from that caste vote for that party.
- No Parliamentary constituency in the country has a clear majority of one single caste. So, every candidate and party needs to win the confidence of more than one caste and community to win elections.
