Lok sabha elections date: The wait of the general election announcement is over. The Election Commission will announce the Lok Sabha election program today. The Lok Sabha elections are likely to be in seven to eight phases in April-May. The commission will convene a press conference at Vigyan Bhawan at 5 pm. The term of the present Lok Sabha is to expire on June 3. Once the election program is announced, the model code of conduct will be implemented.
With the Lok Sabha elections, the dates for the assembly elections of Andhra Pradesh, Sikkim, Odisha and Arunachal Pradesh can also be announced. However, it has not been clear yet whether the Jammu and Kashmir assembly elections will be with the Lok Sabha or not. According to sources, Lok Sabha elections can be held in 7-8 phases.
The term of the current Lok Sabha is ending on June 3. Election announcements will be held after the announcement of the elections next week and the second phase will be the election observers meeting. Election Commission will hold a press conference at 5 pm in the evening. Once the election program is announced, the model code of conduct will be implemented.
According to sources, the notification for the first phase of voting may be issued till the end of March and the vote for it is likely to be in the first week of April. May be counting in the third week of May. There is a complete possibility that the Commission can do the Vidhan Sabha elections of Andhra Pradesh, Odisha, Sikkim and Arunachal Pradesh, like the old tradition, along with the Lok Sabha elections. The Jammu Kashmir Legislative Assembly has been dissolved, hence the commission is bound to hold fresh elections here within a period of six months ending in May. One opinion is that Jammu Kashmir Assembly elections will be held with the Lok Sabha elections, but due to the increase in tension on the Indo-Pak border, decision will be taken only keeping in mind the complex security situation of the state.
Will be bigger in 2019, these leaders will look at
PM Narendra Modi
PM Narendra Modi will take over the command of BJP. The party has contested almost every election since the face of PM in 2014. Modi will be the main face of the party. In 2014, due to the Modi wave, a party got a full majority after 30 years. This time too, BJP is counting on Modi’s face, charisma and work in the election field.
Amit Shah, BJP chief, showed his skillful leadership ability in the 2014 general elections and gave a big victory to the party in UP. This time too Amit Shah will be under pressure for better performance for PM Narendra Modi. The BJP chief has been touring the entire country since last one year.
Congress President Rahul Gandhi is also in the field with full preparation this time. Apart from this, Rahul’s morale is high after the Congress victory in Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan assembly elections. He is constantly targeting PM Modi. This will be the first Lok Sabha election under Rahul’s leadership, instead of Sonia Gandhi.
Mayawati (Lok sabha elections date)
There will be an eye on the performance of party’s former CM and BSP chief Mayawati’s party. In the last Lok Sabha elections, the BSP did not even open the account in UP. This time the party has tied up with the SP to stop BJP in the state. It will be interesting to see how Mayawati’s charisma works this time.
SP Chief Akhilesh Yadav is leading this important election of his life this time. In the 2014 elections, the party had won only 5 seats in UP. This time, Akhilesh has tied up with the BSP to stop the BJP in the state. It will be interesting to see how the performance of both teams remains.
West Bengal CM Mamta Banerjee is engaged in trying to become the face of the alliance against the BJP. He is constantly opposing PM Modi’s most vocal protest. Mamta had recently held a large rally of opposition in Kolkata, in which leaders of 22 parties were involved. This time, the BJP has also put its own weight in Bengal. It will be interesting to see how Mamata’s party, famously known as Sister, performs this time.
Congress President Rahul Gandhi recently made Priyanka Gandhi the General Secretary of the party and assigned him the charge of Eastern UP. Earlier, Priyanka was only active in Rae Bareli and Amethi. This time, Congress expects that Priyanka can cross the party with her charisma leadership in UP.
