New Delhi, May 27 (TIWN): Among factors that have shaped a bigger victory for the Bharatiya Janata Party and ensured the return of Prime Minister Narendra Modi is one that even the party insiders did not expect. Over the second half of his term, the Modi government was seen battling among a plethora of attacks against it, its alleged persecution of the minorities and Dalits. Contrary to this anti-minorities image of the government that the Opposition tried to build, the voters appear to have conveyed otherwise.

A cursory look at the 92 Lok Sabha constituencies where Muslims form a majority of the voters shows that the BJP has not only done better than all other parties, it has increased its tally from the general elections held five years ago.
Of the 92 constituencies where Muslim voters are in majority, BJP has won 45 seats, the maximum won by any party and better than its own tally of 41 seats in the 2014 general elections. The Congress emerged victorious on 18 seats and others on 29.
