Total number of votes casted in favour of a candidate is a sum of 2 key vote banks:

  1. Party vote bank
  2. Candidate vote bank

Sum of these 2 vote banks decide the winning chances in a constituency. Party vote bank is fixed. A candidate should prove himself as the major vote influencer in candidate vote bank category compared to other aspirants. If he is able to convince the party leadership over his vote bank, he gets the ticket.
