Political Election Map of India 2023

Political SCENARIO in India

While the Modi wave contributed largely to the elections of the centre and states, it also aided in making distinguished segregations between the politics of the state and centre. The current elections are seeing more enlightened voters when it comes to unfolding what they seek from their representatives.

With the state elections underway, the campaigning is on a high with the parties clamouring for the voters with jingles on subsidies and promises for the future, if they are brought to power. The Opposition is seeking to gain some threshold in these state elections and looking out by giving further subsidies (as is the case in Delhi) to tilt the ball in their court. Seeing the hopeless scenario, the CPI(M) General Secretary, Sitaram Yechury has urged for all the Left and Opposition parties to unite against the single force of Modi led BJP. In the meantime, Mr Modi is seeking to win over the 144 seats lost in the previous election and will be seen holding 40 rallies across these seats.
