The major weapon against the incumbent government for Lok Sabha Election 2019, is the failure of creating jobs as per the promises made by the Bharatiya Janata Party in 2014.
The opposition has been alleging that the job creation has drastically deteriorated in the Modi government.
Here are five factors that hold a key position in the Lok Sabha Election 2019.
- National Security
Post Pulwama Attack on the CRPF soldiers on February 14, the all-time theme of polls is back in the election game. The opposition once again picked the attack as a government’s failure to protect the armed force.
- Widespread rural distress
The farmers walked hundreds of kms, demanding a set of rules which should be implemented as soon as possible. The farmers have been demanding a three-week special parliament session which would only address the agrarian crisis.
- Cow Raksha
The BJP’s promise to ban illegal cow slaughter was one of the major reasons behind the party’s landslide victory in Uttar Pradesh. Meanwhile, the Muslims fury over the slaughter ban which compounds the loss for a lot of businessmen. However, the government in Uttar Pradesh has opened shelter homes for abandoned cows across the state.
The BJP government has been accused of concealing and doctoring the employment data. The opposition has been alleging that the job creation has in the Modi government has gone down due to twin shocks of demonetisation and Goods and Services Tax (GST).
Elections and caste have been going hand in hand since the inception of the democratic process in 1951 and this election is unlikely to be any different. The opposition has been hoping to defeat the Modi government by forging a coalition of Yadavs, Jatavs and Muslims represented by Samajwadi Party and the Bahujan Samaj Party.
