After the sixth poll of the current elections, it is now almost certain that on May 23, the NDA alliance, led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, is expected to get an overwhelming majority and the next government will be formed in the country under the leadership of Shri Modi. This estimate has been made by theConfederation of All India Traders (CAIT) after getting feedback from traders who have got further feedback from their respective customers which indicates that BJP will take around 300 seats, while the constituent parties of NDA will also take the seat between 45 and 50 seats.
This time, traders from across the country have not only voted for BJP and allies but have also launched a major support campaign on appeal of the CAIT for BJP and its allies. Not only the traders but their employees were also a part of this campaign. During the campaign traders also encourage their customers to vote for Mr. Modi.There are about 70 million businessmen in the country which employ around 30 million people and this time traders and their employees have voted across the country as a strong vote bank!
Based on this feedback, the BJP will get between 50 to 60 in UP, 22 to 25 in Maharashtra, 15 to 25 in West Bengal, 10 in Assam, 23 in Madhya Pradesh, 22 in Rajasthan, 23 in Gujarat, 4 in Punjab , 8 in Haryana, 7 in Delhi, 15 in Bihar, 6 in North East, 7 in Chhattisgarh, 14 in Odisha, 10 in Jharkhand, 4 in Tamil Nadu, 20 in Karnataka, 3 in Jammu and Kashmir, 3 in Himachal Pradesh, 3 in Kerala 6, 2 in Goa, 3 in Uttarakhand, etc.
CAIT National President Mr. BC Bhartia & Secretary General Mr. Praveen Khandelwal said that after talking to traders and other people across the country, it has transpired that people of the Country did not appreciate negative campaigning of Shri Rahul Gandhi. Beginning with Chowkidar Chor Hai, Mr. Gandhi and other opposition leaders gave abusive words to Mr. Modi and attacked him personally instead of talking on issues. The Opposition party failed to put the government in the dock for its tenure of last five years.! The sensitive issue like inflation was never raised by the opposition. Apart from personal criticism, no national issue were ever raised by Mr. Gandhi or other opposition leaders. with opposition leaders. The announcement of giving concessions to the farmers by Mr. Gandhi has had adverse effects on other sections. The taxpayer class is angry with Mr. Gandhi’s announcement.They opined that we should contribute tax and Mr, Gandhi intend to give it like freebies which is not acceptable. The divided house of opposition and the other hand strong unity in NDA allies also played an important role At the same time under leadership of Mr. Modi, the BJP & allies remained united.There was a perception among the common people that at present there is no substitute for Mr. Modi and if the dispute with Pakistan or any other nation has been more in the future, then no other leader than Mr. Modi will be able to give a fitting reply. Persistent violence in West Bengal has disillusioned people from Mamta Banerjee public opinion against Mamta Banerjee and their votes were converted in tn favour of BJP.
On the other hand, on April 19th, by addressing the traders by Mr. Modi at the National Traders Conference held by CAIT , businessmen across the country got enthusiastic and all traders got mobilized in favor of the BJP. Steps like formation of a National Traders Welfare Board, pension to merchants over the age of 60 years, accident insurance of 10 lakh to businessmen registered in GST, national retail trade policy, merchant credit card etc. also influenced the traders to a great extent. During conversation with people across the country, it also came to light that Shri Modi succeeded in making nationalism a major issue of elections, which was directly related to the hearts of the people.The government’s Ayushman Bharat Scheme and the Mudra Scheme created the BJP’s footprint among the small classes, while the programs like Start Up India and Skill Development were attracted to the youth of the Country. Personal attacks on Shri Modi by Mr. Gandhi and other opposition leaders gained sympathy for Shri Modi.The organisational structure of BJP was miles ahead than others parties. BJP cadre worked wholeheartedly throughout the country, whereas other parties did not have personal contact with voters, and focussed only on rallies.It is also true that people were angry with the BJP candidates in many areas, but because of the intense campaign of Mr. Modi, the BJP got their vote and they were heard saying that we have given the vote to Modi.
