The position in 2004 was NDA 181, UPA 218, Others 144 and in 2009, NDA 159, UPA 262 and others 122.
Having a look at the over head figures, total voters were 81.45 crore as 10 crore increase since 2009 with voters turn out as 66.38 per cent which comes to 55.13 crore and the election cost to exchequer is Rs. 3426 crore apart from parties expenses in crore on campaign, election materials rallies etc.
After 24 years, the single party has come into power in the country defeating the 150 year old Congress party, which projected Rahul Gandhi as an young leader with hopes of future.
There has been a slight increase in 'Others' but the position of UPA and NDA is not only reversed rather historical with full majority, making it difficult to nominate the opposition for announcing Leader of the Opposition.
In fact, there is no leadership in the Congress after the Nehru and Gandhi family, who could run the affairs of the largest democratic country.
All, close associates of Rahul Gandhu- Mohan Gopal, Jai Ram Ramesh, C.P. Joshi have failed to form any sort of strategy in the current Lok Sabha election. The most faithful person, Manmohan Singh has left all to the history but Sonia Gandhi, President, AICC has taken the responsibility of the defeat.
Kejriwal, who come up on the political platform as a crusader of corruption in association with Anna Hazare, Kiran Bedi, had a good start by forming the government in Delhi but could not survive for more than 49 days. He committed a blunder by quiting the Delhi government and jumping to the national level eying the post of Prime Minister.
Instead of fielding Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) candidates against all the big guns, he should have confined to limited seats. Moreover, Prashant Bhushan went uncannily missing from the chaos, making the AAP sound like a bunch of chaotic teenagers out on an adventure trip. But it is still a mystery that AAP could not get any single seat other than four seats in Punjab. It needs introspection thoroughly before launching its candidates in subsequent elections.
The outcome of 2014 election results will start a new political history in Indian politics as there had been no single party during the last three decades to get majority except in 1984 when after the death of Smt. Indira Gandhi, sympathy votes went to Rajiv Gandhi.
However, now the Congress has to face an unbelievable defeat reducing the figure of its MPs to two digits only. There is hardly any doubt in giving the credit of this victory to Narendera Modi who had been extensively touring since September last, after his name being announced as the BJP's PM candidate.
During this campaign, the role of BJP's senior and established leaders was very limited and the entire campaign was concentrated around him, in the form of addressing the rallies in an impressive and golden worded speeches based on development agendas which included not only constructions of roads, bridges, factories but its sustainability in the form of road sense and employment opportunity. Immediately after announcement of the election results in favour of BJP, he started his development agenda from cleanliness at Varanasi, so that youths could compare India with Singapore.
At the same time, because of more than expectations support of the people, they too have high expectations from the new government on various issues like, unstable economy, low employment opportunities, uncontrollable inflation, internal and external security besides corruption and good governance.
Anyhow, now the BJP has crossed the mark of magic figure i.e. 272, so now they cannot give any excuse in passing any Bill to which they were pressing during the Congress rule.
Frankly speaking, Modi has assured the people of India for better living standards which resulted in creating a Modi Wave throughout the country. It also became easy for Modi to use the technique to hit the iron when it is hot when hardly any part of the country was satisfied with the Congress-led Dr. Manmohan Singh government.
Another factor that has gone in his favour is the large number of enrolment of youths who have used their right to franchise, as they are expecting job opportunities in the coming years which has almost been standstill in the last few years. During the elections, the youth wing of BJP had been active on social media, which played a vital role in making the image of the party at the national level.
