BJP may not find it easy but pollsters predict another term for Modi
Lok Sabha polls over

Early Times Report
Jammu, May 19: As the polling for the last phase of Lok Sabha elections has ended, the pollsters have started predicting which party would form the next government at the Centre. When the polls commenced everyone had given full marks to BJP led NDA government and had predicted that Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, would return to power with a thumping majority, but during the past few days situation has changed drastically.
An analyst while talking to Early Times said, "The reports pouring in from different parts of the country suggest that opposition is coming together to consolidate the anti-BJP front. It seems that winning this election is not going to be a cakewalk for the saffron party, which swept India in 2014 with the Modi wave."
He said that trends indicate that opposition parties too have got their share of votes and these elections have been completely different from the ones which country witnessed in 2014. "Despite reports suggesting that the elections have been keenly contested, many people still believe that BJP has got the upper hand as the Prime Minister Narendra Modi's fight against terrorism has united the nationalist people. The PM Modi during his five year tenure took the Pakistan and the terrorists head on and gave free hand to the armed forces. These factors are likely to help the BJP," he added.
Another analyst said, "There is no doubt about the fact that Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, has succeeded in taming Pakistan and the terrorists and entire nation acknowledges it, but there are other issues which the BJP led government couldn't handle during its tenure. Unemployment has grown, prices of essential commodities have shot up and economy is in doldrums. These factors definitely have gone against the BJP."
He said that the people who are writing off BJP led NDA completely seem to be a missing a point that even if the opposition comes together, there is no one among them, who is as strong as the Prime Minister Narendra Modi. "The Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu has emerged as the key figure during the past few weeks but it's too early to say that he could be the Prime Ministerial candidate for the opposition. Congress has already made it clear that it won't insist for the Prime Minister's seat and it won't mind supporting a non-Congressman for the top post in the country," the analyst added.
He said exit polls have already declared that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is all set to get another term.
