Karnataka Assembly elections: An opportunity for Modi to consolidate himself ahead of the 2019 general elections
On Saturday, the people of Karnataka voted to elect the members of the legislative Assembly in the ongoing election process. More than 70 per cent of voters cast their votes.

Although every election in India has its own importance, but this particular election will become sort of an indicator that whether the popular Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be able to conquer the south or the sliding Congress party stage a comeback, owing to the advantage of having ruling Congress government led by chief minister Siddaramaiah.

Both the major parties have been working hard since quite a long time to impress the voters and have utilized their resources to the fullest especially the Narendra Modi-led BJP having put everything at stake for Modi's credibility is at stake.

Although the Congress has tried to manipulate the voters by playing the otherwise important Lingayat card but the BJP has apparently convinced the voters not to get misled through politics of castism but to rely on the tried and tested agenda of development adopted by the BJP. Whatever the outcome might be, on a personal note, I see the following factors clearly indicating that BJP is going to form its government in Karnataka, based on the charismatic personality of Prime Minister Narendra Modi:

1. Recently, Modi has grabbed a place among the top 10 personalities of the world in the list prepared by Forbes. This itself speaks volumes about the stature of Narendra Modi

2. Narendra Modi has also emerged as a global leader owing to his commitment shown in the field of climate change and concern for rapidly increasing pollution worldwide. This has become possible entirely due to his dynamic personality

3. World Bank has predicted that under his leadership, India will achieve a high growth rate in the years to come. This clearly indicates that the policies and the approach adopted by Modi has proved fruitful.

4.  Perhaps, Modi has got the best diplomatic skills which he has used to influence even rival countries like China

5. He is an excellent orator and through his brilliant tool "Mann Ki Baat", he has been able to communicate directly with the masses and convincing them about the steps he intends to take on the path of development

6. He has emerged as a visionary who is able to predict the requirements of the masses, well in advance. Be it Ujjwala Yojana or Beti Bachao.

7. Last but not the least he manages his cabinet very well, in a result-oriented direction which has resulted in improving his image as a true messiah of the poorest of poor. Although a few challenges like ever increasing oil price, scary unemployment figures and threat from neighbouring countries still exist, but I strongly believe in his extreme will power and dedication, just like millions of fellow Indians. I'm sure that he will be able to lead India in 2019 as well as 2024. His stature is so high that all opposition parties combined fail to match him.
