She continued her winning streak in 2019, securing a substantial margin of 2,32,008 votes, solidifying her party’s and the BJP’s presence in eastern Uttar Pradesh.

Given her track record of success and strong support from the electorate, NDA once again placed its trust in Anupriya Patel by fielding her as a formidable contender in Mirzapur against Ramesh Chand Bind of the Samajwadi Party. Ramesh Bind, who had previously won from Bhadohi in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, returned to Mirzapur after serving as an MLA from one of the assembly seats in the constituency. The polling for Mirzapur was held in Phase 7 on 1 June.

Anupriya Patel’s consistent victories have solidified her position as a prominent leader in the region. Her re-election with a substantial margin shows the lack of trust and confidence that the people of Mirzapur have placed in her and her party as the targeted vote bank is OBC ‘Kurmi’. The vote margin said it all that anyhow she emerged again and lost her support from the community of Patel. As she continues to serve as a Minister of State for Commerce and Industry of India, her win reaffirms her influence and impact on the political landscape in eastern Uttar Pradesh.
