India has a multi-party system. Some of the major political parties in India are: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Indian National Congress (INC), Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), Samajwadi Party, Communist Party of India (CPI), Communist Party of India- Marxist (CPI-M), Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), Janata Dal United (JDU), Shiv Sena. There are also various regional parties in India. To recall BJPs biggest win in the year 2018 was Uttar Pradesh. BJP also won Uttarakhand, Manipur, and Goa while in Punjab; Captain Amrinder Singh won to retain a seat for Congress in the state. After the recent Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh election, only nine states remain outside BJP or the BJP-alliance.
The states include Tamil Nadu which is with AIADMK, Kerala which is ruled by CPI-M, West Bengal which is ruled by Trinamool Congress (TMC), and Odisha which is ruled by Biju Janata Dal. Telangana is ruled by the Telangana Rashtra Samiti, Mizoram which is under the Congress rule, and the National capital New Delhi is ruled by Aam Aadmi Party. The appearance of the votes of citizens of India will decide the fate of the election results 2019, like who will govern India. There is a pre-poll alliance set up which is termed as the ‘Grand Alliance’ where the opposition unity is a mirage. Despite the internal differences, some of them may stick together but predictably there will be more than two opposition camps. A re-grouping of political parties and NDA will gather critical mass is also talked about.
With the beginning of the election arena, the year 2019 will be the year of General Elections which would take place probably in the mid of the year. The two major national parties- BJP and Congress will be the locking horns in this 17th general election for securing a majority of seats in the Lower House. The Modi government had targeted for two continuous terms, and the way they were making clean sweeps in state elections initially, was proof of Modi wave. But the recent Gujarat elections and the uprisings in different parts of the country against the ‘Pro-Hindutva government’, shows a very different side of the coin.
With the speculation of an unprepared opposition, the NDA led Government is seen as the government which will carry out the lead process for the second term.Many aspects are seen together making a way possibly for the NDA is
Ram Mandir : With majority for NDA in Rajya Sabha, the hurdle of construction of Ram Mandir will lead to consolidation of Hindu votes in favor of BJP.
Alliances : NDA alliances are stronger than ever, from north to south including north-east will help NDA gain more seats this time.
Demonetisation Driv: Demonetisation has highlighted the government will to resolve to root out corruption from India. It has a very clean image.
Pro Poor Schemes : With schemes of centre like provision of subsidy on LPG, lower rates of loans for construction of houses has helped poor to an extent.
Tough Stance on Security Issues : BJP has promised to complete the fencing of Indo-Bangladesh border by 2018. There is also a boost to the Indian Army where the army is at front foot with the affairs of the strengthening security of India.
GST Bill : The passage of the GST bill in both the houses of the Parliament will boost the economy of India and will help making it a one economy. Prices of various goods and services will go down gradually.
Lastly, the party which sustains in its leadership, strategy, work ethics and moreover the concentration and the focus on developmental issues may give people of India many reasons for choosing wisely in upcoming General Elections 2019, India.
