There is a saying: behind every successful man there is a woman.

But behind the success of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s BJP party in the recent assembly elections, thousands of women have a hand in it.

According to two recent studies, women have voted more for the BJP than men. In the assembly elections held between February and March, the BJP won four out of five states, including a large state like Uttar Pradesh.

Since 1962, the Election Commission started giving gender-based voting figures in general elections, since then women have been in the Congress in Lok Sabha elections.
