Political History of Jatavs (Scheduled Castes) in Agra, Uttar Pradesh before BSP, Part 3 ‘Post Independent’ – The Coalitions

The Coalition

There are also two other Jatav members of the Legislative Assembly resident in Agra, bringing the total to three. One, who is also a municipal corporator of Agra City and intermittently a Republican, was elected an MLA form Fatehabad district from a reserved seat in Agra on the Congress ticket. He received much of his support from the Jatav Congress “big men.” He won the election by 1,047 votes over the Jatav Republican candidate s 20,865. In this defeat of the Republican candidate, three factors played a role. First, a third Jatav entered the contest, because, he says, he had a grudge against the Republican candidate and wanted to defeat him. This he did by capturing 2,852 votes. Second, the constituency is a rural one, and the Republican are not as effectively organized in the rural areas as they are in the city. And third, the Congress attempted to activate as salient the Untouchable caste status of the Republican Jatav in the election.

In the 1962 election, there was a union between the Muslims and the Republican Party. A Muslim was nominated for the Parliament seat and three Republican, including the Vaisya doctor, ran for the State Legislature.

There was another instance of this during one of the elections for the deputy mayorship of Agra among the municipal corporators. The Republican party put up the B.A. graduate of there on caste as there candidate; he was defeated and received only sixteen votes, all from his own party. This election was taken in an elective body, the Agra Municipal Corporation, where the Republican Party is second in number to the Congress, which itself does not have a clear majority. Subsequently, when the Republicans put up the Vaisya doctor as there candidate for this post, they were able to form a coalition with the Jan Sangh and some Independent members. As a result, the Republican Vaisya secured the votes to become Deputy Mayor.
