India TV-CNX Survey: The Narendra Modi-led government just passed the long-pending Women's Reservation Bill in the Parliament. While the Congress extended support for the women's reservation bill, it also demanded its immediate implementation along with the provision for the representation of SCs, STs and OBCs. The Congress also dubbed the government as anti-OBCs for not allocating the reservation. Congress leader Rahul Gandhi while batting for its immediate implementation said that the legislation is "incomplete" without provision for quota for OBCs.
However, the numbers tell a different story as far as vote share is concerned. India TV-CNX Opinion poll tells the true picture of what OBCs, specifically the women, think about the Narendra Modi government. In the survey that was held in various states, several questions were asked like - If elections are held today, where will the women's vote go? With 33% reservation, will the pattern of women voting change? For women voters, is PM Modi the only factor?
Who will OBCs women are likely to favour in Lok Sabha election?

If Lok Sabha elections are held today, 57 per cent of OBC women will vote for NDA, 30 per cent for I.N.D.I.A and 13 per cent for others.
Which bloc NDA or I.N.D.I.A. is likely to get support of OBCs men if elections are held today?
In the case of men, 56% would vote for NDA-Alliance, 31 per cent for I.N.D.I.A and 13% for others. As far as total backward voters are concerned the percentage is the same as the other.
