The transformation of backward class politics in Uttar Pradesh
Published in Economic and Political Weekly
Volume: 53
Issue: 33
Pages: 68 - 73
A major political development in Uttar Pradesh in recent years has been the growing elitism in candidate recruitment by parties. While parties claim to have become more socially inclusive, they tend to enrol their candidates from among the new business elites of the state, who seek to further entrench their domination through participation in the democratic process. This has far-reaching consequences on backward class politics.
