If the 2014 election was an unpredictable one for BJP as far as victory and majority was concerned the 2019 poll outcome has taken everybody by surprise and has asserted the confidence built on the platform of development, transparency and good governance for the party. The verdict looks to go very near to the exit polls predicted which also shows the growth of science of election prediction– psephology too has come a long way with calculations coming near to the current poll outcome. The trends visible are disturbing. Once again ‘Modi brand’ has out smarted peoples’ expectations. It looks Modi’s prophesy of ‘give us ten years’ to take India on the path of development by giving an accountable government looks to be turning out true. In this game of numbers, Congress looks to be the biggest losers and wherever Congress party is in power it is because of the local leader’s stature like in Punjab where Amrinder Singh has won 2017 assembly elections at a time when Shiromani Akali Dal headed by Parkash Singh Badal was ruling the roost with BJP support. The party has failed to prove its mettle in Jammu and Kashmir. The poll outcome has set in motion a spate of resignations with Telugu Desam Party (TDP) chief Chandrababu Naidu, who was active in opposition deliberations in government forming, tendering his resignation. Following Naidu, even Karnataka too would face a similar situation with H. D. Kumaraswamy putting in his papers. Literally it is the saffron run in almost all states as far parliamentary elections are concerned. The electoral victory has paved the smooth way for the BJP to carryout the left-over development and progress giving Congress some tough movements for revival and regaining the old glory of dynastic rule. The Lok Sabha election result has turned “historic” and “unprecedented”, and the mandate is for nationalism and faster development of a new India.
