India. Modi's party wins the 2024 elections

“A big win for Prime Minister Modi in the Hindi speaking region”, announcement Economic Times. His party, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), won three regional elections, in the Hindi-majority states of Rajasthan (in the northwest), Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh (in the center of the country). Only one of the four states that renewed their local assemblies in November did not support the ruling Hindu nationalist party.

The success of this election “setting the tone for elections that will allow the Lok Sabha to be renewed in 2024 [la chambre basse du Parlement indien]”, analyze New Delhi newspapers directly devoted to the political consequences of elections. What is even more remarkable is that in 2018 the Hindu nationalist party lost Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh, two Hindu-majority states to the Congress party, which is currently in opposition nationwide.

This year, “BJP does not depend on local political figures and prefers to hand over control of election campaign to Prime Minister, Narendra Modi”, analyzing economic daily. The Hindu nationalist leader toured the country in the weeks leading up to the election, particularly reassuring women, the younger generation and the working class, with government aid programs aimed at the most vulnerable groups.

“Good government”

On social network X, Narendra Modi congratulated himself on his party's good results. “The results in the states of Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan show that Indian society is strongly committed to good governance and development. [du pays] ”he said, while Rahul Gandhi, the opposition figure and Nehru's great-grandson, believes that “ideological battle” still far from finished.

“The only consolation for the Congress Party: it won Telangana [dans le sud-est du pays]where he can rule”, appropriate Economic Times. Six months ago, the opposition party also won Karnataka, another southern state. For the New Delhi title, “This new victory in Telangana gives Congress an important foothold south of the Vindhya range”.

However, this is not enough to guarantee “the success of the alliance of opposition parties called INDIA [et créée cet été]. In Hindi-speaking northern Indian states, the BJP is more popular than all opposition parties combined.”
