Modi 2.0: BJP sweeps Lok Sabha elections, Congress mauled


New Delhi, May 23 (IANS): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday led the BJP to a stunning victory in the Lok Sabha battle, with the ruling party itself set to win 303 seats in a marked improvement over its 2014 showing that left the opposition dazed and demoralized.

And along with its allies, the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) was poised to give another five years of governance, a development that sent the Sensex breaching the 40,000-mark as India Inc celebrated.

The NDA could end up with 343 of the 542 Lok Sabha seats where polling took place.

"India wins yet again!" tweeted Modi as it became clear that the Congress, India's oldest political party that had mounted a major challenge to Modi, was set to be routed, winning just marginally more seats than the 44 it got in 2014.

 

Congratulations poured in for Modi, who was re-elected by over 4.75 lakh votes from Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh. BJP President Amit Shah was on the road to victory with an equally thumping margin from Gandhinagar in Gujarat.

"Our win is India's victory," remarked Amit Shah.

In contrast, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) swept state after state, including those ruled by the Congress. Its most spectacular results came in Uttar Pradesh where it was set to win 60 of the 80 seats, puncturing the SP-BSP alliance, while making major inroads in West Bengal by taking the victory lap in an unprecedented 18 of the 42 seats.

The saffron party was set to bag all 26 seats in Modi's home state Gujarat, all 10 in Haryana, all seven in Delhi, all five in Uttarakhand, all four in Himachal Pradesh, both seats in Tripura as well as Arunachal Pradesh and the single seats of Chandigarh, Daman and Diu, Manipur besides a whopping 28 out of 29 in Madhya Pradesh, 24 out of 25 in Rajasthan, 41 out of 48 in Maharashtra along with the Shiv Sena, 25 out 28 in Karnataka, 11 out of 14 in Jharkhand, 9 out of 14 in Assam and 39 out of 40 in Bihar in alliance with the JD-U and LJP.

The Modi sweep crushed Congress President Rahul Gandhi in Amethi in Uttar Pradesh although he was elected to the Lok Sabha by over 4 lakh votes from Wayanad in Kerala. UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi, who had planned a meeting of opposition parties here on Thursday in the hope of dislodging Modi, was the sole Congress winner for the Congress in Uttar Pradesh (Rae Bareli).

The SP-BSP alliance, which was confident of tripping the BJP's road to victory, suffered a blow in the country's politically most critical state. The BSP was poised to win just 10 seats and the Samajwadi Party 6 as their caste formula got drowned by Modi's election campaigning based mainly on aggressive nationalism.

The BJP's years of efforts in West Bengal finally bore fruits as its candidates were set to emerge victorious in 18 places, washing out the once formidable Left and leaving the Congress punctured. The BJP won only two seats in 2014.

The Congress had something to cheer in Punjab, where it was set to win 8 of the 13 Lok Sabha seats, and Kerala, where it decimated the Left by winning 15 seats on its own while four seats went to its allies.

The DMK-led alliance made a clean sweep of Tamil Nadu and was set to take 36 of the 38 seats, leaving only 2 to the ruling AIADMK. The Congress, a DMK ally, won 8 seats.

Just Punjab, Kerala and Tamil Nadu accounted for 31 of the Congress party's total 50 Lok Sabha seats. In many states, the Congress failed to open its account or won just one seat.

A sombre Rahul Gandhi conceded defeat and congratulated Modi. Congratulations also came from foreign leaders.

The ruling Biju Janata Dal (BJD) was poised to win 13 of the 21 Lok Sabha seats and also the Assembly elections. The YSR Congress Party stormed to power in Andhra Pradesh, dislodging the TDP, and could bag 22 of the 42 Lok Sabha seats.

The TRS performed relatively poorly in Telangana, with victory sighted in 9 of the 17 seats.

While former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Farooq Abdullah of the National Conference was set to win in Srinagar, PDP leader and former Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti conceded defeat in Anantnag, once her stronghold.

Around 67 per cent of the nearly 900 million voters exercised their franchise in the seven-phase elections that began on April 11 and ended on May 19. Election in Vellore in Tamil Nadu was countermanded by the Election Commission.

    At ground level in every section of community there was resentment of Modi's rule. Forget about depositing 15L in every one account, he is unable to bring black money abroad, no jobs for our youth, economy nose dived, terrorism increased more than 1000 our brave soldiers martyred. Over and above farmers were committing suicide, thousand businesses closed due to demonitasation, thousand of jobs lost. In spite of this record I do not think people voted for him overwhelmingly? There is fraud has happened, EVMs are tempered with and EC also sided with ruling party. People will be responsible for themselves for choosing Modi once again.

    The main reasons for congress to doom in 2019 LS polls :

    1. Dynasty politics
    2.some MPs who represent their constituencies allowed to contest for the past 50 years until they lose the election
    3. Still bucket politics and adoring Nehru families
    4. Not training second or third generation politicians
    5. B form on the basis of muscle power

    From British Raj(divide and Rule) to Unite and Rule(Secular Raj) and back to Modi Raj(divide and rule).The progress that India has achieved over 70 years , once again has been disseminated. Modis Nationalism visa-a-vis Hindutva(ism) has given rise to polarization in India . Mahatma Gandhi fought and died for for an Secular India. BJP which Modi has affiliated with is a party that accommodates people who are sympathizers of GODSE, Mahatma Gandhi's assassin . Modi has given a lukewarm response to this person. This person in now an MP.

    BJP/Modi's affiliation and accommodating with killers of the father of nation itself is a motive to kill secularism/Gandhism and encourage Hindutva. This is quite evident in Modi's remarks towards secularism after winning this 2019 election.

    Multi Religion, multi lingual India is strong secular nation and will not become a non-secular nation. Muslims, Parsees, Christians and Buddhists and many others live and work in this great nation along with Hindu brothers and sisters mostly secular in nature. The contributions these secular people make in the fields of business ,education and health care are remarkable. For better or worse Modi has swept the nation on falls pretext of Hindu nationalism .

    Can BJP/Modi succeed in creating hindutva nationalism? Perhaps! in the short -term but surely not in the long- term. That is for sure.

    Secularism will always flourish and any other "ism" is designed for short term goals will always fail .

    Modi has won the battle this time but not the war.

    'Secularism in India' s context means appeasement of minorities so that they vote en mass to a political party, divide majority on caste, region, language lines so that they hold on to power and amass wealth for themselves and their cronies at the cost of national security, corruption, regional imbalance and division among people.

I can name several schemes of government which benefits all people irrespective of caste and religion(unlike in the past) but i dont want to waste my time in explaining to people who dont want to understand and continue with hate.

    India is one country wheree we have least tax payers. Fordevelopment of any country people need to pay tax honestly. Only salried employees pay tax. All businessmenn avoid tax. Demon and gst has raised tax complience. You should not count benefits of demonn and gst in current year. For here every year the govt will get tax money which can be used for development. Pervious govt used raise tax levels for raising income. It is modi increased the tax base. You shoul give credit to him which people of india realised except for you.

    When winning with more than 50% of the seats was unthinkable in the past many years because of powerful regional parties in many States, Modi’s achievement in winning back to back with majority of the seats is unimaginable. That shows how popular he and his party are. This is despite his questionable actions he took to demonetise the currency, apply GST, etc. Also, surgical strikes, not once but twice, played an important role in increasing his popularity. Majority of the voters are young and educated ones, who are backbone of India and whose support is vital for him to come back to power. Though I’m not a supporter of any party, I always wish the winning party to win at least 50% of the seats so that they don’t have to depend on others. Getting support from others is nothing but getting blackmailed every now and then. Whether you like it or not, it’s a mandate from majority of the people, and we have to respect it. Let’s just hope and wish he will perform much better than what he did in his first tenure. Congrats Modi!

    You sound really mature . There is no point in hating any individual person personally . You can dislike the ideology , question the capacity but we must respect the mandate . Above all when comes to decesion of national importance we must be with the Govt which ever party it is of . Unity of the country is of paramount importance.

Now all of a sudden you want a place which was given to you by congress????. As per your communal logic then Indians all over the world too have to come back to India. Foriegn exchange and foriegn trade will collapse and there will be an increase in demand for jobs in India adding to the already catastrophic high employment situation.
