The 2019 election verdict came in stronger than the average of exit polls, with the NDA tally aggregating at 355 seats which resoundingly paved the way for a Narendra Modi govt. 2.0. He is now on a bigger democratic podium, along with approximately 60 crore total Indians who cast their ballots for or against him, after an intense and polarising campaign. The re-election of BJP is seen as a vote for Hindu nationalist Modi, the 68-year-old charismatic PM with RSS roots and whose fiery speeches and active social media presence evoke emotionally charged reactions from both supporters and critics in India and across the world. It was more like a Presidential election this time in India with the voters left with one choice- to vote for Modi or not.
