The next Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi and his Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) got the biggest mandate since the last thirty years. This year after making the center government in the last elections, the Congress faced their worst defeat in its history. Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi accepted their defeat with a smile. A land sliding mandate means that India is finally going to have a stable government where the opposition and different parties don’t try to bring the government face down.
This is why the BSE Sensex is headed for the moon. Today by the noon, it had crossed 25,000 for the first time ever. The results leave the BJP as the central pivot of the national politics with a growing national impression and also strong holds in the south as well as the north-east of India. The Congress which once ruled India even lost in areas where they had their roots grounded. The big takeout from this result is that our opinion polling and exit polls have come of age.
While most polls gave the BJP and allies 275-290 seats, the final results exceeded this total significantly. This suggests that the polls got the trends very right, but not the final tally. BJP announces a new era and Modi says that BJP will take along everyone while ruling India.The results have left the regional parties as the main opposition voices in parliament, even though the Congress will still be the largest single party in parliament. Collectively, the regional parties have established their salience in Indian politics.
