About the National Conference

Results of nation-wide election for 17th Lok Sabha are announced on 23rd may 2019. The results were preceded by 2-months’ long election campaign, organizational outreach by political parties, media parlays, opinion polls, accusations and counter-accusations, promises and super-promises made in the manifestoes and most importantly the public churning on what type of leadership India needs and what are the issues that new government need to tackle on a priority etc. The actual results have consolidated the political trends since 2014 Lok Sabha election in terms of further growth of Bhrataiya Janata Party and shrinking of space for centre-left politics in the country. Shri Naredra Modi has become the first Prime Minister from outside the Congress party to complete the five term and got re-elected for the second term.
