Narendra Modi's wave visible across India; will Gandhi family take responsibility of the total defeat
As per the latest trends coming in, as the counting of votes is going on, NDA is likely to get 325 seats where as BJP on its own is crossing the magic figure of 272 seats. These are trends and may change after final round of counting. But the writing on the wall is clear that NDA is forming the government, BJP is set to get highest tally as a single party since 1984 and Narendra Modi is going to be Prime Minister of India with a strong and stable government.

The trends really appear to be magical as none has expected such a result. BJP now have presence in all parts of the country, starting from Kashmir to Kanya Kumari, from Gujarat to North Eastern states. Most of the people expected that NDA will form a government but never expected a landslide mandate.

How it happened! One can refer to my article 'Why only Modi can do it for BJP in 2014- A different school of thought!', published on this platform on 21st September 2013, where it's pointed out that Narendra Modi can bring non-voting middle class to the polling booths using his attraction and ground strategies. Regarding ground strategy too, another article ?Why Narendra Modi alone can bring majority in coming Lok Sabha Polls!? published on this platform on28th February 2014, where it was explained how Mission 272+, voluntary program etc being run by the strategists of Modi.

This is the efforts of the ground workers that brought even non-voting class to the polling booths making the 2014 turn out (66.38%) as highest in Indian election history that resulted in to a decisive mandate. Is it a Modi wave? Definitely yes. But as I had already said that there could be an strong under-current generated by popularity of Modi but to make a wave it needs to be harnessed. BJP and RSS workers have successfully harnessed strong undercurrent in favour of Modi for PM!

What is the message of this election? It's simple. Now the coalition era is over. Cast equation, religion polarization etc are also over. Election can be won making development as an issue! Indian voters are no more leaning to divisive and vote bank politics. They want development, employment and comfortable livelihood. They reject negative politics and perhaps dynastic politics too!

Tarun Gagoi, Chief Minister of Assam has tendered his resignation owning moral responsibility of the Congress' decimation in his state. Will Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi should also own moral responsibility for the worst decimation of the Congress since independence? The answer to this question will decide what would be the future of the Congress party!
