It has been Modi wave all over North, West and Central India but Punjab has behaved differently. The Leader of the Opposition in Rajya Sabha, Mr. Arun Jaitley who is also a top leader of BJP was defeated in Amritsar Lok Sabha constituency at the hands of Capt. Amarinder Singh of the Congress party who too is considered an outsider. Then to everybody's surprise, the Aam Aadmi Party which could not get a single seat in its stronghold of Delhi, won 4 out of the 13 seats in Punjab with Congress also winning an equal number of seats. So, in a way, the Punjab voters has told the BJP leaders that people cannot be taken for granted and BJP would have to perform well to win a second term.
Not only BJP has to provide good governance but control inflation and corruption also for to poor people a rise in sunsex does not matter. They are more concerned about price rise. I have met a number of poor people. They are illiterate but can count. They are not aware of what sunsex is nor do they know how the Government functions but they have a yardstick to measure a political party's performance and that is whether it can control price rise or not and whether there is enhancement in their wages. So, BJP led NDA must deliver to be able to come back to power again.
