The idea of dynastic politics is facing a huge setback this time. Several prominent dynastic politics figures like JD (U)’s Nikhil Kumaraswamy in Karnataka, PDP’s Mehbooba Mufti in Jammu Kashmir, TRS’s K Kavitha, Congress’s Vaibhav Gehlot in Rajasthan and Jyotiraditya Scindia are facing defeat. It is not that all such figures are facing defeat, but it is true that many of them are losing. There are some dynastic politics figures who are approaching victory. The successful ones are JD (U)’s Prajwal Revanna in Karnataka, NC’s Farooq Abdullah in Jammu Kashmir, DMK’s Kanimozhi in Tamil Nadu and BJP’s Dushyant Singh in Rajasthan.

The BJP’s election machinery deserves a special appreciation for the way they have handled the election campaign. The victory of the BJP is the victory of the nationalism narrative projected by the saffron camp during the election campaign sessions.
