On 16th May 2014, what happened in India ?
Off-course 2014 elections results were out but what happened unique in the history of Indian Politics.
Yes 2014 election was only 1 man show of BJP’s PM candidate Narendra modi. BJP won 282 seats single handly in whole India with surpassing the magic number (272 seats) for making a stable government in India.
But here a question arises how could all this happen for BJP as they have got the biggest victory of their whole political journey.
There might be some reasons behind that :
1.Strong PM candidate: Narendra Modi was the chief minister of Gujarat and suddenly he became the most popular personality of BJP over some well reputed leaders like Lal krishna Advani, Sushma Swaraj,Jaswant Singh, Murli Manohar Joshi etc.BJP chief Rajnath singh elected Modi as Prime minister candidate and after that “Lahar of Modi” was started in India. 2.Weak Governess of Congress: The past government lead by Dr.Manmohan Singh was too weak that they lost their path totally. The past government was totally arrogant towards youngsters and failed to relief the public for various important issues. Manmohan Singh was considered as “Puppet” or “Robot” of UPA chief Sonia gandhi.
3.Immature Congress leader Rahul gandhi : On one side Narendra modi was totally heating up the public with his voice and campaigning but on the other hand Rahul gandhi was not able to convince public to come out and vote for them.In some interviews , he was criticizing his party members.He also teared the ordinance bill signed by PM.Sometimes he was found repeating the some lines again and again like “women empowerment”.
4.No Religion No caste : First time in India, its good to see that people are thinking above religion and caste and voting for development.In states like Uttar Pradesh where leaders like Mulayam singh yadav and Mayawati beg votes for caste and religion, but this time UP public slapped on the faces of these leaders and clearly said-“DO WORK OR GO TO HELL”.
70+ Seats in UP is also the big reason for BJP”s victory.
5.Marvelous Publicity : This time BJP Utilizes all the platforms for publicizing their political campaign like road shows,rallies,tv,radio,internet etc. BJP uses all the eye catching advertising for promoting Narendra Modi. They use Google Adwords for publicizing Various banners of Narendra Modi in the internet world.They uses a creative way to show ads on radio and television.
One of the good example of their good publicity that in World T20 cricket tournament in 2014, after every over there was ad of BJP-“ABKI BAAR MODI SARKAR”. As BJP knew that whole India was watching cricket so that was the good move to promote election campaign of BJP.
