If you take a little bit interst in the politics of our country, you might be aware that next Lok Sabha elections are scheduled for April-May 2019. On the other hand, if you literally knows what really happening down the line, you can think that the upcoming elections could happen in the next 100 days. Here’s why.
Reasons why Lok Sabha elections could happen in the next 100 days
State-wise estimates of BJP’s future performance.
For BJP, it would be hard to expect them to repeat the 282 magic. BJP could be expected to lose 40-50 seats in the 5 states of Gujarat, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Jharkhand.
Lack of jobs and farmers plight condition
As we all know the government is totally failed to act on their promises. The two big challenges in India today are seen to be the distress among farmers and lack of jobs for youth.
BJP will use surprise element
BJP could use the surprise element and stun the Opposition. A party in power is always ready with its plans and resources for elections.
PM Modi’s recent interviews
The Prime Minister gave two interviews in two days over the weekend. This is unusual. How many interviews of the PM do we remember from the first three-and-a-half years?
Republic TV’s cVoter survey
Republic TV broadcast a cVoter survey suggesting that NDA would win 335 seats in the Lok Sabha.
BJP’s government last budget
The Budget on 1 February will be the BJP government’s last budget. People’s memory of political and economic news is just about 90 days, so if the post-Budget feel-good has to be exploited, now is the time.
Lok Sabha elections this March-April could be combined with state elections in Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, Tamil Nadu, Delhi and Maharashtra, which would account for a third of the country electorally. It could be positioned as the next big reform to ‘clean’ India.
