Never before in the history of Indian election were as big as this one. About 600 million people voted, with more than 8,000 candidates contesting seats in the Parliament. According to the almost complete results, Mr. Modi’s party BJP and its partners won close to 350 seats in the 545 seats lower house of Parliament. Modi created history becoming first prime minister winning majorities in back to back elections in the Parliament in nearly 50 years. We have places 5 reasons which made Modi win.
Modi’s popularity in India
The popularity of prime minister Narendra Modi is the alone reason people wanted to vote BJP. All the campaigns of BJP party were solely focused on Modi’s billboards. People admire him due to his sharp communication skills or more precisely his intense speaking style. As they say, he is a straight-talking, simple-hearted, purposeful man who is courageous enough to make swift decisions in the national interest. His larger than life presence boosted the BJP.
Modi’s air strikes
The air strikes were by far the most cited reason to vote cheerfully for the BJP, backing Modi. India’s recent hostilities with Pakistan has made news this year. Modi demonstrated the power of the Indian government. People say that Congress may have launched attacks against Pakistan but they were not much talked about.
Modi’s government schemes
Among the main strikes of Modi’s government work, houses, toilets and gas connections were the few that marked in rural India. The schemes like Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana, the Swachh Bharat Mission, the Ujjwala Yojana had been executed intensively. This electrified the rural population. These schemes were a reason people kept faith in Modi.
Opposition was weak
The opposition did not have much to offer. Money, ideas, and imagination are the main qualities required to win elections. Congress was still in the fight despite lacking the advantages. But the major drawback was they people couldn’t relate Rahul Gandhi as a leader. The opposition does not have BJP’s qualities as well. Modi has new ideas, money, and machine, which lead him to win the fight.
The Hindu right is ascendant
Hindu nationalism has been a thread in Indian politics since even before the country won independence from Britain in 1947. With this election, Hindu nationalists have more power than ever before in modern Indian history. Modi is known for his Hindu nationalist beliefs, which emphasize India’s Hindu heritage and seek to further empower the country’s Hindu majority.
