A ground-level survey of the Sitapur parliamentary constituency was conducted by India News to analyse the performance of Rajesh Verma, the Member of Parliament from Sitapur, and gather voters’ feedback about him. Rajesh Verma, an Indian politician, secured a seat in the Lok Sabha, the lower house of India’s Parliament, representing Sitapur, Uttar Pradesh, in the 2014 and 2019 general elections as a member of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

Situated in Uttar Pradesh, Sitapur Lok Sabha constituency holds profound historical importance, tracing its roots back to the era of Lord Rama›s exile, with legends suggesting that Lord Rama, Mata Sita, and Lakshmana resided here. The city derives its name from Mata Sita, and it is believed that Maharishi Ved Vyas composed the Puranas along the banks of the Gomti River in Sitapur.

With approximately 1.7 million voters, Sitapur grapples with developmental challenges, trailing in literacy and overall progress. Despite consistent concerns regarding development, the area hasn’t witnessed substantial strides, irrespective of the ruling MP’s political affiliation.

The constituency comprises five assembly seats, characterized by a significant Muslim and Dalit voter population. However, the Brahmin-Rajput and Kurmi voters hold considerable sway during elections, often entangled in caste-based political dynamics.

The impending 2024 general elections carry immense significance for Sitapur, where public scrutiny of the incumbent MP’s performance looms large. India News has established four key criteria to assess MPs, including their parliamentary conduct, ground-level contributions, social media impact, and an accurate survey conducted by the network.

In a breakdown of voter demographics, the survey revealed an interesting split. The constituency consists of almost equal proportions of male and female voters, with a significant majority residing in rural areas. Caste-wise, there’s a varied representation, including SC/ST, Brahmin, Rajput, Kurmi, and Muslim communities.

Parliamentary Display: The MP has showcased satisfactory performance in parliamentary proceedings, securing 0.61 out of 1, indicating a diligent approach in this area.
Ground Display: With a score of 1.56 out of 2, the MP has demonstrated commendable performance in addressing ground-level issues and engaging with constituents.
Social Media Engagement: The MP’s presence on social media platforms stands at 0.52 out of 2, indicating a relatively limited or less impactful online presence.

India News Survey: As per India News’ survey, the MP achieved a score of 3 out of 5, indicating a moderate perception among the public regarding their performance.
Historical data concerning the Lok Sabha seat showed Rajesh Verma’s previous terms, initially with the BSP and then with the BJP, showcasing his political journey.
Key issues highlighted in the survey include local unemployment, migration, shutdowns of sugar mills impacting the economy, small business closures, farmer concerns, water scarcity, poor road conditions, education, healthcare challenges, rural poverty, and connectivity issues.

While the survey reflects a divided opinion among the constituents, it underscores the pressing need for addressing localized challenges, especially in rural areas. This survey outcome serves as a reflection of the nuanced viewpoints prevalent in the Sitapur Lok Sabha constituency.
