WHO will win the 2019 Parliamentary elections? The BJP or Congress? Will either of them get an absolute majority or will there be a fractured mandate? The country’s voters may well decide the fate of a new India, even as they desire for roti, kapda, makaan and rozgar. But the two mainstream parties need to find ways to fulfil these demands. At present, the Congress, with assembly victories in Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan, is in a jubilant mood. But it has to realise that it benefitted more from the anti-incumbency factor, the anger of the people who felt that they had to simply vote out the BJP. Yet, the results in MP and Rajasthan weren’t as decisive as they were predicted to be. Prime Minister Narendra Modi needs to brainstorm what went so wrong in just 54 months. Was it because of the hollow electoral promises? Was it because of a protest against increasing communalisation? Why did his charisma not work with the people this time?
