Did You Know?

The only referendum ever to be held in the Republic of India decided that Goa was not to be merged into Maharashtra.

The world's first democratically elected communist government was formed in Kerala in 1957.

Chambers Book of Indian Election Facts, the first book of the Chambers Facts series in India, covers Indian elections right from the beginnings in the second half of the nineteenth century to present-day India. This compact chronicle of modern Indian elections is divided into three parts: the age of Congress dominance (around 1952–77); the age of political fragmentation (1977–99) and, finally, the age of ascendancy of the BJP (roughly 1999 onwards).

Comprehensive coverage of all Lok Sabha and Vidhan Sabha elections, derived from meticulous research that is blended with journalistic verve, makes the book fascinating and useful. This easily accessible one-of-a-kind quick reference to Indian electoral history with all essential information as well as intriguing beyond-the-ballot events is sure to both educate and entertain.
