2019 General Elections: Modi Vs. All The Parties?

Elections are soon going to be held in India. Two things will be on the minds of our youth – whether the next IPL will be held in India seeing as how security might not be available due to the elections and who will be the next Prime Minister of India. For now, let’s talk about the elections.

Who will be the next Prime Minister of India? The answer to this will largely depend on how the BJP performs in 2018. They must hold rallies to demonstrate what they have achieved in these four years. But the harsh reality is that the BJP had promised too much and has delivered too little.

On the other hand, as far as the Congress is concerned, I don’t think Rahul Gandhi has shown himself to be a strong opposition leader. For a strong democracy, we need a strong opposition.

I believe that if the BJP can put in some strong and dedicated effort this year, they will be able to demonstrate their achievements. Don’t just hold rallies, give people something to believe in. As for the opposition, in my opinion, it’s time to leave behind Rahul Gandhi and find a better leader.

For all the voters, don’t just vote but encourage others to vote too. Feel free to vote for anything you want – BJP, Congress, NOTA – but think before you vote.
