Anti-incumbency abroad, but how about pro-incumbency in the country? theinsiderinsight

Voting for the Lok Sabha elections in the country is going to start from April 19 this month. Everyone's eyes are on, will Modi get a hat-trick? The same thing is coming out in all the surveys that Modi government is going to come again. The question is, what is there in Modi that he will score a hat-trick and equal the victory of the country's first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru? But the question related to this is why there is no anti-incumbency wave in the country, while anti-incumbency wave is running in foreign countries.

Erdogan, who considers himself the Caliph of Muslims in Turkey, has suffered a huge blow. President Tayyip Erdogan, who has been ruling Turkey since 2003, has suffered his biggest political defeat. His party has lost in all the big cities in the local body elections. Erdogan's party has also lost in Istanbul and Ankara. It is not just a matter of Turkey, but the condition of America's President Joe Biden is also not good. There is going to be a fight again between Biden and Donald Trump in the elections to be held in November this year. Not only this, Prime Minister's election is going to be held in Britain in January next year, there also the situation of Rishi Sunak is not considered good. In Canada too, the popularity of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is declining, whereas in Pakistan, the ruling party could not achieve full majority even after putting Imran Khan in jail.

Coincidentally, the highest number of elections are being held in the world this year. According to the International Foundation for Electoral System, elections are being held in more than 70 countries this year. Half of the world's population lives in these countries. From Asia to Africa and Europe, the litmus test for Prime Minister or President elections has started. Not only this, the European Union consisting of 27 countries is also going to be colored in elections, but the elections of India, the world's largest democracy, are interesting.

In fact, elections are under the shadow of economic crisis, political instability and weak leadership. The GDP rate in America is about 2 percent, Britain's GDP rate is about 4.3 percent and Turkey's GDP rate is about 5.5 percent. On one hand weak leadership and on the other hand economic development matter, but this is not the situation in India. The GDP rate in the country is estimated to be 7.5 percent.

India is an emerging economy in the world, politically BJP is a strong party and the leadership of the country is also considered strong. Actually, there is a leadership based party in the country and not a party based leadership. Be it the first Prime Minister of the country, Jawaharlal Nehru or Indira Gandhi or the current Prime Minister Narendra Modi, when the leadership is strong, the party also becomes strong and when the leadership is weak, the party also becomes weak. This is the reason why Prime Minister Narendra Modi is claiming to have scored a hat-trick this time because of his leadership.

In electoral politics, whoever wins wins the coin. It is not that questions are not raised on leadership. When BJP lost Himachal Pradesh and Karnataka assembly elections, questions started being raised that Modi's magic was about to end, but the next moment BJP won Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh in the assembly elections of five states, then it was said that it was a blow. That Prime Minister Modi has risen again. Now it is being claimed that there is no anti-incumbency wave against Modi.

Modi has won two Lok Sabha elections and the decision for the third time is yet to be taken. It is worth noting that Congress has been reduced to only three states whereas the performance of regional parties has been better as compared to Congress. Modi is the most popular leader not only in the country but also abroad. In the Morning Consult survey conducted last month, PM Modi's popularity rating was 78 percent, while US President Joe Biden is at eighth position while Rishi Sunak and Justin Trudeau are far behind.

Actually, the backbone of BJP's politics is Hindutva, but elections cannot be won only by Hindutva politics, but BJP is also emphasizing on development. Not only this, every section is getting the benefits of public welfare schemes like Ujjwala Yojana, toilets, Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana, Kisan Nidhi Samman, Jan Dhan, free treatment of Rs 5 lakh for the poor and free food grains to 80 crore people to create BJP vote bank. Is becoming successful. At the same time, the resolve to make the country the third economy in the world and a developed nation by 2047 is also influencing the voters. Not only this, BJP is trying to prove the opposition parties as corrupt and the dynastic party is their target.

The third big thing is that BJP claims that they have Prime Minister Narendra Modi with strong leadership and strong intentions, that is why Modi's face has been made bigger than the party. The message is that Modi means BJP, Modi means India. BJP has won in one stroke and elected a new face of Chief Minister in three states, not even a word of protest has emerged anywhere, not only this, the Chief Minister has been changed in Haryana. The message is that whether it is a government or a party, there is only one face everywhere, that is the face of Modi. This is also a reason why there is a stampede among the opposition parties, their leaders are joining BJP and those who used to praise Rahul, are now praising Modi.

The party is continuously growing under the leadership of Prime Minister Modi. Perhaps this is the reason why anti-incumbency wave is visible on foreign soil, but anti-incumbency wave is not visible anywhere on the country's soil, although it has to be tested.
