Lok Sabha elections are on their way. The year 2019 is rapidly approaching and it is sure that it will bring a lot of surprises with it as it comes. As many of you would already know that 2019 will hold the General elections once again and the people of this great nation will choose their leader via a vote. But things will be different this time. Due to certain events and economic as well as political decisions, the trend that always used to swing in the favor of arguably the most popular Prime Minister that India ever elected, Mr. Narendra Modi, has started to shift against him. Apart from that, there are various regional and state level matters that will also be having a major say in the upcoming political race. Let’s look at a few factors that need to be watched out for in the coming Lok Sabha elections. Have a look!
The Rise Of National Parties And Their Prime Ministerial Candidates
In the last few years, a lot of political parties have risen and gained the spotlight. The little drama caused by the Aam Aadmi Party has led to the emergence of many new political parties. Parties such as the Aam Aadmi Party, AIADMK, and the Janata Dal are also looking forward towards expansion to other states as well. Apart from this, many parties have used the Prime Minister’s name as a tool for publicity. This has led many parties to gain the spotlight and media attention in a very small amount of time. Mr. Arvind Kejriwal is among these political leaders who have been very vocal about their differentiating political ideologies. These along with many other controversies have led to the question that will BJP win in 2019? Well, time will tell.
A Near Demolished Congress Party
There is nothing new here. The Indian National Congress is completely demolished in terms of their name and reputation. The people of this country did make their thoughts about the Indian National Congress very clear back in the year 2014 when BJP took the cake and gave the crown to Narendra Modi. This fact is also supported by the Narendra Modi popularity survey. As far as the answer to the questions ‘is BJP losing popularity?’ is simple. A big no. The BJP or the Bharatiya Janata Party is a large and experienced political organization and they know what they are doing under the leadership of a person that Congress never had since the year 1984. The Lok Sabha elections in 2014 were a disaster for the Indian National Congress. They would hope that they would perform better in the upcoming General elections.
Strength Of Regional Parties Over Their Strongholds
Enough of the larger political parties. Let us focus on the smaller regional parties who have maintained their impact and influence on the regional population. These regional political parties have emerged as quite influential parties in the recent times. The Lok Sabha elections in the year 2019 can show a big shift in the trends in terms of the influence of regional political parties. Not just that but they are also successful in forming alliances with larger political parties like the Janata Dal (United) or JDU and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP.)
Organized And Structured Campaigns
Since the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, the election campaigning process has changed drastically. In fact, it will never be the same ever again. The 2014 Lok Sabha elections gave birth to a new generation of election campaign tacticians, strategists, and planners whose tactics were not only effective but highly efficient. Political leaders like Amit Shah and Ahmed Patel played an important role in generating a successful campaign back in 2014 and the trend seems to continue in 2019. Thus, the people who are wondering whether they will see Mr. Narendra Modi in Lok Sabha again as the Prime Minister of the country, the answer might be yes. However, the rest remains to be seen.
