    In 2014, the Narendra Modi-led BJP swept to power, winning 282 of the 543 seats in Lok Sabha; it crossed the halfway mark of 272. The BJP became the first party to gain majority on its own in three decades. The National Democratic Alliance (NDA), the coalition it leads, won 336 seats. The Congress, which headed the UPA government for two consecutive terms earlier, could manage just 44 seats.

    Some of the Key election Issues :
    -National Security ( Pulwama attack, Rafale Deal, etc)
    -Farmers ( Loan, Suicide, etc.)
    -Unemployment ( New jobs, etc.)
    -Corruption

    -State wise favor (Flood-Kerala, Bengal, UP- Cow Slaughter,etc.)

    As all will know the result on 23rd May when the counting will start.
    Let's have a healthy chat/say:
    1. Who do you think will/can win this election(Just a prediction).
    2. Why do you think the said party will win.
    3. What is your expectation from the new government?
    4. Who do you think will be a perfect choice for making a PM post.
    5. Any other view/say.

    Hi, I do believe, in all its essence - BJP is going to mark in this election.

    As we all know, the major denominator for the party to win is Mr Modi who have got celebrity status across the country now. Am I saying, just looking at the status of a person, we should be voting ? No. I do agree, as a PM, Mr Modi has seen failure as well in effective implementation of demonetization, GST roll-out or other religious issues but who dare taking decisions which shall impact the living pattern of the country as a whole? And those decisions must have costed his own existence in his next election as well. But on the contrary, majority of the people tend to live the pain as they understood, to see the day of light, you need to travel in the dark.

    And also, BJP's major matra is Hindutva. As India is majority of Hindus, most portion of the traditional background would vote for BJP on religion grounds. I do agree it's wrong, but you cannot change the mindset of the people. And secondly, a major group of Indians, have sympathy over Modi, they say - just 5 years to clean up India is next to impossible as the other party is been given 60 long years, let BJP be given justice of 5 more years. And as you can see, except for the Rafale controversy, BJP has not been booked for any other major scams unlike in past by other parties, And Mr Modi backed by Mr Shah are very good orators and understand the pulse of the mass. One more factor to note is that - Mr Modi lives very simple life or has very less wealth, which garners the sympathy vote at large. Sympathy vote has made many people win in our country.
