Title: Public Services Delivery to Muslim Villages by BJP Government

Abstract: We have seen the rapid rise of populism across the globe. However, the impacts of populist parties on the socio-economic status of minority groups have been understudied in developing countries partly due to the lack of microdata. By utilizing the newly available microdata in India, I provide suggestive evidence of the negative effects of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on public services delivery to Muslim villages. My findings suggest that villages with a high Muslim population share receive fewer public facilities as well as public jobs in the states ruled by the BJP.
