There are almost few days left for the 2019 general elections in India. There is a debate in the television media about who will win the 2019 general elections. Many speculations are going on social media but still, confusions are there.
The ruling party BJP looks like quite confident about coming to power again in 2019. But somehow there is still a fear among the party workers or supporters of Modi government.
In 2014 general election there was a wave in favor of Modi which made him win 282 seats. This time the government has to face anti-incumbency as well as the united opposition at a time.
The Samajwadi Party, BSP, RJD, TMC, TDP, AAP, and Congress are planning to come together to break the winning streak of Modi which is 3-0(3times CM and one time PM).
But as we did a deep analysis, we found that there is still a great chance for BJP and Mr. Modi to win the next election.
Here are 5 main reasons which may give Mr. Modi an edge over the opposition in the 2019 general election in India.
The main reason that may help Modi in the 2019 election is the present government’s achievements. According to the projection of the World Bank and the International monetary fund, India is the fastest growing economy in the year 2015-16.
The GDP of India was 4.74% when the UPA government came down but under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, it touched 7.5%. PradhanMantri Jan Dhan Yojana, Ujjawala Scheme, Demonetisation and the Make in India programs are the main highlights of Modi’s achievements.
Apart from all, the Modi government has been able to send a strong message to the international community about India’s Military and economic strength. The continuous visits of Modi to various foreign countries have strengthened the diplomatic ability of India.
Modi’s non-corrupt Image
During the UPA government’s rule, there were many allegations against the government. From 2G scam to coal-gate scam, the government was badly indulged in disproving those allegations. Many cabinet ministers were accused of corruption and few of them were trialed by the Supreme Court as well.
But the present Modi government seems to be very transparent in these cases. Since 2014 there is not a single allegation of corruption against the Modi government. Many times the opposition tried to drag the Modi government into various sensitive deals like the Rafael deal but they lacked in bringing proper evidence.
We think this may help the Modi government in the upcoming general election. The people of India voted against corruption in 2014 for which the Modi government came to power in Delhi and the Aam Aadmi Party established itself as a political party. The clean image of Modi can give an edge to BjP against the united opposition in 2019 general election.
The ‘SHAH’ Factor
Everyone knows how Amit Shah’s strategies swept away the SP, BSP, Congress, and RLD in Uttarpradesh. The dramatic victory of Modi in the 2014 election gave Amit Shah a different identity. He is now regarded as the ‘Chanakya’ of the Bharatiya Janata Party.
The ’SHAH’ factor can be one of the major reasons that may let BJP win the 2019 general election. It is said that Amit Shah is the man who always gives priority to the party workers as the party president. His motivation and social engineering demolished the well established communist government in Tripura.
So the ‘SHAH’ factor matters the most in the upcoming election. If his strategy clicks, then Modi will again address the country from the red fort in 2019.
Roar of Hindutva
BJP was formed in the early 90s during the Ram JanmaBhumi Movement. It has an image of the pro-Hindu party due to its association with the Sangh Parivar. All the RSS, VHP and other Hindu organizations directly or indirectly work for BJP.
It is the Hindutva wave that made BJP defeat the caste politics in UP and Bihar in 2014 election. From 2 to 282 seats was only possible because of the ground level work of the pro-Hindutva cadres.
So if Hindutva roars again in 2019 general election, BJP may win more seats than it expects. As the opposition is uniting, caste politics may stop the Modi wave. In this situation, Hindutva can instill motivation in BJP workers. In the present situation, it can be said, BJP is successful in maintaining it’s pro-Hindu image which will gonna help Modi in the upcoming election.
Good News from South & East
Last time the Modi wave was stuck in the northern parts of India which made BJP lose the major states like West Bengal, Odisha, Tamilnadu, and Kerala. From West, Bengal BJP was able to win only 2 seats while from Odisha only one.
It is a fact that during these years, the BJP has been able to strengthen its cadre in West Bengal, Kerala, and Odisha. BJP has emerged as a strong opposition in these three states. In local elections, the vote percentages of BJP have increased to a competitive number.
You would be surprised to know that, these three states alone hold more than 80 parliament seats. If Modi would able to win at least half of them, then he may easily pass the magic figure of 272 in the upcoming Loksabha elections.
