Analysis of General Election2019
An Overview :
What led to the win: 2019 general election started on 11 April 2019 and 19 May 2019 was marked as the last day of the election.
About 900 million people were eligible to vote this year but only 67% turned out for voting – receiving highest participation by women voters.
Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) won 303 seats in total. It was one of the biggest wins of BJP till date.
Honourable Prime Minister's Strength:
BJP as a party does not have an impact on voters as Narendra Modi Ji as it’s a leader has.
People look up to his speeches and wish to see him hold the prime minister chair for upcoming years as well.
Hence, PM Modi as a brand and Modi wave is much in the air these days
Clearly, this time the focus was more central to nationality rather than the actual social issues.
The main aim of the BJP government was to shift people’s attention from the core social and political issues to national issues.
Everything, every action was taken for the country was part of the vote bank politics. People voted not for the party but for the party leader.
Who Were The Main Targets?
Particularly, the youth was the main target this year. First-time voters played an important role in the 2019 general election.
Muslim women too became a source of collecting more votes.
The rivalry between India and Pakistan became the foremost source of gaining the vote.
Adding to it, surgical strike-2 was fresh in the minds of people. Hence, people voted on that basis.
Indeed, it increased hatred and negativity to some extent.
What Led To The Victory?
- Triple talaq recognised as unconstitutional and illegal.
- Built ‘statue of unity’- the world’s tallest statue.
- Increasing international bond benefiting the country.
- Swachh Bharat Abhiyan (Clean India Campaign).
- Invite SAARC nations for the swearing-in
An Opposition needs to come up with some alternative leader or ways to get ahead of BJP.
Presently, the nation sees no one as perfect as their current Prime Minister.
