What’s BJP win in 3 states mean for 2024 Lok Sabha elections

The recent state assembly elections in India have revealed several factors that give the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) an advantage heading into the national polls in 2024. Despite the Congress party winning in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, and Chhattisgarh in 2018, the BJP swept all three states in the Lok Sabha elections in 2019. This suggests that Prime Minister Narendra Modi's appeal and connection with voters remains strong, particularly in the heartland. Additionally, the BJP's robust organisation and motivated cadres, as well as its narrative that resonates with voters, further cement its advantage. The BJP's ability to turn incumbency into an advantage is also a significant factor in its success.
