IITians interfere in political analysis
2024 will be a very busy year in terms of elections in the country. Along with the 18th Lok Sabha elections, elections in many states including Jammu and Kashmir, Haryana, Andhra Pradesh, Odisha are also to be held in the new year. If we look at the electoral methods of the last 10 years, the use of scientific analysis of data, social media and electronic means has increased significantly. After Prashant Kishor's threat in the elections of Bihar, West Bengal and Delhi, a new character called Political Strategist has entered the electoral environment of the country. In the last elections, such strategic companies have proved effective by preparing strategies based on caste data, population density, geographical structure and regional issues.
