A ground-level survey of the Mainpuri parliamentary constituency was conducted by India News to analyse the performance of Dimple Yadav, the Member of Parliament from Mainpuri, and to gather voters’ feedback about her.
Dimple Yadav, the incumbent Member of Parliament from Mainpuri since December 2022, previously served two terms representing Kannauj in the Lok Sabha. Married to Samajwadi Party President Akhilesh Yadav, she emerged as a dynamic leader in Mainpuri despite perceived inactivity in Parliament. In the 2014 general elections, Mulayam Singh Yadav secured victory on this significant seat amid the Modi wave. Following Mulayam Singh’s demise, Dimple won convincingly in the 2022 by-election, maintaining the Yadav family’s stronghold. Mainpuri has seen 17 general elections and 3 by-elections, with the SP winning 9 times.
Despite visible development, caste-based voting remains influential. With approximately 1.9 million voters, the Yadav family has dominated for 18 years. Mainpuri’s social composition includes a significant presence of backward and minority voters. The 2024 general elections are crucial for scrutinizing Dimple Yadav’s performance, and India News is conducting surveys to gauge public opinion on her parliamentary report card.
In terms of attendance in Parliament, the number of questions asked, utilisation of MP funds, and special contributions, Mainpuri’s MP Dimple Yadav scores 1 out of 3, which is equivalent to 33%, a figure significantly below the average.
According to a survey conducted by India News on the ground, parliamentary performance holds great significance during elections. The real measure is what the people think about their MPs. In the survey, various questions were asked, and the people of the Mainpuri Lok Sabha constituency expressed their opinions openly.
As per the India News survey, after talking to thousands of people, the public’s verdict is revealed. However, it’s important to note that the India News survey allocated 70% attention to its assessment, and based on this, 7 out of 10 marks were given for the evaluation. Our calculations are also based on this 7-point scale. Let’s see what the results show.
The people of the Mainpuri Lok Sabha constituency have openly and candidly responded to our six questions without hesitation. Without any bias, they have provided answers to each of our questions. Most individuals believe that the MP’s performance in the constituency is excellent. Additionally, there is a suggestion that MP Dimple Yadav should be even more active in the area, as the local residents have high expectations from her.
Regarding voting preferences, the majority of Mainpuri’s electorate favours the Samajwadi Party over the NDA. The influence of the Modi government’s work seems to have a comparatively lesser impact in this constituency. Based on the development in the region and the fulfilment of promises, the people of Mainpuri are giving MP Dimple Yadav an impressive score of 7, indicating their satisfaction. So, according to the responses from the ground-level population, Dimple Yadav has received a favourable rating of 73%, which is excellent.
The survey conducted by India News included questions posed to the residents of the Mainpuri Lok Sabha constituency. Similarly, we directed inquiries about the performance of the Member of Parliament (MP) in the ground, specifically in Mainpuri Lok Sabha. The evaluation of the ground demonstration was conducted on a scale of 1 to 10, with a 10% weightage. Understanding the outcome is crucial.
Taking into account the ground demonstration, the constituents are assigning a rating of 0.70 in 1 to the MP, Dimple Yadav. This suggests that in the ground demonstration, the parliamentarian is receiving approximately 70% approval, which is quite commendable.
The analysis of parliamentary performance and survey scores from India News has given us insights. However, in today’s era, the influence of social media is crucial. We reached out to the people of Mainpuri on various social media platforms, asking the same questions posed in the India News survey. The evaluation of social media responses was conducted on a scale of 1 to 10, with a 10% weightage.
In the social media survey, the MP has received a rating of 0.44 in 1, which is below average. Only 44% of respondents on social media have a favourable opinion about the parliamentarian, reflecting a less favourable sentiment compared to the ground demonstration and the India News survey.
In parliamentary activities such as attendance in sessions, the number of questions raised, utilization of MP funds, and special contributions, the MP received a score of 0.33 in 1. In ground demonstrations, the score was 0.70 in 1, indicating a more favourable response. The social media survey resulted in a score of 0.44 in 1, which is below average.
Considering all these aspects, in our ground survey, the MP received a rating of 5.11 in 10, and in an overall assessment, combining the scores from parliamentary work, ground demonstrations, and social media responses, she attains a commendable score of 6.58 in 10. Therefore, the people of Mainpuri Lok Sabha constituency have given MP Dimple Yadav a passing grade of around 66%, which is considered satisfactory in the first division.
