Today is the fifth phase of elections in 51 constituencies and with that only two phases are remaining now. In 2014 elections, BJP got more than 80% of its seats from the constituencies which fall under the last three phases this year. Without any data analysis or without the help of any psephologist, it can be conclusively said that Modi government is all set to get a clear majority.
HMP tells you about signs that are the basis of this claim:
1. Change in the body language of PM Modi: The year begins with the interview of PM Modi with ANI, on January 1st, since then Modi has given an interview to many news channels answering all kinds of questions, however with every passing phase of the elections his body language has started displaying increased confidence.
2. Ticket to Sadhvi Pragya Thakur: 12th May will witness one of the most awaited contests, the contest in the capital city of Madhya Pradesh – Bhopal, between Digvijay Singh, who frequently uses the term ‘Hindu Terrorist’, and Sadhvi Pragya Thakur who was one of the accused in 2008 Malegaon bombings. On being questioned about his decision of handing out a ticket to Sadhvi Pragya, Prime Minister Modi quite confidently underlined it’s symbolism. A symbol meant to defeat terms like ‘Hindu terrorist’. Not to forget in his earlier rallies, Modi has very clearly said that a Hindu can never be a terrorist. Giving out a ticket only for symbolism and not bothering about losing a comfortable seat goes on to show that BJP is pretty confident of landing a majority.
3. Mahagathbandhan in UP finally coming in support of Congress: After rejecting the Congress’ proposal of forming alliance with SP and BSP, Mayawati recently appealed to the workers of the Samajwadi Party for an SP-BSP alliance and appealed people to vote for the Congress in Monday’s election when people in Uttar Pradesh’s Amethi and Raebareli go on to cast their ballots. Even if BJP wins a good number of seats, the opposition would never want them to get a clear majority, and in that case, every seat matters. Hence, Mayawati came out in open support of Congress. However, this support which came after 4 phases of elections goes on to show that the opposition’s boat is sinking worse than anybody could ever imagine.
4. Anil Ambani lashing out at Rahul Gandhi: Much before the election campaign started, Congress president Rahul Gandhi has been accusing PM Modi and Anil Ambani of corruption in the Rafale deal with random figures and no concrete evidence to support his claims. In a recent rally, Rahul Gandhi called Anil Ambani a ‘Chor’, or thief. It was only after four phases of the elections that Anil Ambani lashed out at the Congress President Rahul Gandhi. Generally, corporates refrain from acting on such things out of the fear of jeopardising their stocks and affecting their future business. So if Anil Ambani chooses to do this, one can imagine the extent of confidence he has in PM Modi being reinstated.
5. Lutyens media can be termed as a political share market of the country. Their reactions are quite telling and reveal the political scenario of the nation. With every phase of the elections, there’s a flood of remorse that can be seen absorbing several journalists. Lately, even hardcore anti-Modi journalists are now accepting that there’s indeed a wave that favours PM Modi and in UP BJP might be getting more seats than they expected.
6. The Release of Modi Biopic: Vivek Oberoi through a tweet announced that the Modi biopic shall be released on 24th May, a day after the announcement of the election results. Vivek Oberoi is risking his Bollywood career with the movie and if PM Modi wins, the movie is definitely going to be the biggest hit of 2019 and a peak for Vivek Oberoi’s career. Announcing its release after four phases of the elections shows that PM Modi is coming with a clear majority.
