Is modi power working? Is 2019 going to be in favour of the India National Congress (Congress) party? The Indian elections are on.
It is a most crucial period. Currently there are state elections in five major states: Telegana, Rajasthan Mizoram, Mizoram and Chattisgarh.
As per the last period the ruling parties for these states were:
Telangana- Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS)
Madhya Pradesh – Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)
Rajasthan – BJP
Mizoram – Congress
But the parties that have now won these five states are:
Madhya Pradesh – still not clear
Mizoram- Mizo National Front (MNF)
The biggest shock of the Indian elections so far
BJP did not win one of those five states.
As the Congress is inching towards victory in three big states that went to the polls over the last few weeks, Punjab minister Navjot Singh Sidhu said “bad days are ahead,” taking a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his promise “good days are ahead.” The slogan was designed ahead of the Indian elections in 2014.
Not just this but the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) Governor, Urjit Patel, resigned from his post after a long-drawn battle of disagreements with the central government. In his short resignation letter, Patel did not write anything critical of the government and said his decision to resign was a personal one.
The manner of Patel’s exit will have serious implications for the institutional strength that the RBI has acquired over the years. https://t.co/UzFxUY4EGE

However, there are reports that his reason is different from the one he stated. This can also influence the coming 2019 election. Nothing is known so far as to whether BJP is going to come back or if the Congress is going to rule. The struggle is one on one but whatever comes, the hope is to see the best government.
