The elections are being held all over India, it's that time of the year again! As we all know, India has all types of voters: enthusiastic voters, first timers, lazy, but forced, doing it out of ethics, etc. While polls to elect a new Lok Sabha was held from 11 April, and the results will be declared on the 23 May. Here are 15 facts you need to know about this years elections:
India doesn't run without politicians and our politicians stand out because of corruption. When elections are supposed to arrive, the propaganda is so mind boggling that out-of-the-reach statements are made, movies are made to show the good side of the parties and what not. It's crazy.
Now, this is a real issue. India, being a country driven by poverty in a lot of places can't afford these kinds of expenses just so that people elect the 'better giving' party. In the 2014 elections, India spent around 3800 crores, just for the facts.
Especially for the first timers, you guys don't need a voter slip anymore. Any ID proof is okay for you to vote if you're 18+.
2014 saw the historic success of Narendra Modi, who led the BJP. Despite, some of his promises are still under process, people have incredible faith in him and they just can't get over the party.
Not to mention, this man has some skills. He is not all wrong and unworthy after all. I say, he stands a chance. No offense, Modi lovers.
Or that's what we all are hoping. Because in these years, Asia's third-largest economy appears to have lost some of its momentum.
