Read on GD Burning topic: Vote bank politics is still dividing India 
 
A vote bank is a loyal group of voters from a community, who always vote for a particular candidate or political party in elections. This behavior occurs because of an expectation of real or imagined benefits from a particular political party, often at the expense of the welfare of other communities.
 
And vote bank politics refers to the creation and development of such vote banks through the implementation of divisive policies. So, do vote bank politics still exist in India and do they divide India? 
 
The answer to both parts of the question is ‘yes’. This is because India is a diverse nation, and by trying to meet the demands of each community, political parties often fall prey to vote bank politics, sometimes unknowingly.
 
Recently, news surfaced that the Aam Aadmi Party, formed by Arvind Kejriwal, has fallen prey to vote bank politics, a system that it initially wanted to eradicate. Upon the formation of the Aam Aadmi Party, Arvind Kejriwal announced to the country that it will put an end to the politics of hatred, also known as vote bank politics.
 
 All was going well until the party formed a Muslim cell and a Sikh cell to reach out to these communities. If the party simply reaches out to these communities without promising benefits to them at the expense of other communities, we can safely say that the Aam Aadmi Party has not followed the path of vote bank politics.
 
However, if the segregation of different communities leads to favoring of certain communities, then the party will be labeled ‘unsuccessful’ in achieving its goal. Sadly, the Aam Aadmi Party, by segregating communities, has indirectly divided Indian citizens. Now, each community will look at the other as being different. And this will eventually lead to a divided India, if not tackled properly.
 
Earlier this week, the Bharatiya Janata Party accused the Samajwadi Party of engaging in vote bank politics by banning Vishwa Hindu Parishad’s Sankalp Diwas on October 18. 
India is a democratic country, where all religions and communities should co-exist in a peaceful manner. By banning such an event in Uttar Pradesh (UP), the Samajwadi Party has been accused of ‘Islamization’ of UP politics.
 
Vote bank politics are rampant in India, particularly because India is a nation with innumerable communities. So far, no party has come close to including all communities in its policies. 
 
By trying to appease every community, political parties fall prey to vote bank politics, which will ultimately divide India.
