Votebank Politics are the conspiracies by politicians to get the support of minority groups by doing temporary favours and promises, often at the cost of other communities.

This action is known as "playing a card" in politics.

  • Gender Card: Appeal to the supposedly equal female gender with special priviledges and quotas
  • Race Card: Appeal to the supposedly equal minority community with special priviledges and quotas
  • Religion card: Appeal to the supposedly equal religious community with special priviledges and quotas


Playing the Caste Card and Class Card are more ethical, IF followed through. But usually, the promises in politics usually remain just that - unmaterialized promises.

  • Caste Card Appeal to the discriminated caste(Profession) with special priviledges and quotas.
  • Class Card Appeal to the Poor Class with special priviledges and quotas.
