Congress Alliance Will Face Defeat in Lok Sabha Election: Amit Shah
It is observed that people who vote in Indian elections are so illiterate that they can easily be cheated by corrupt politicians with their ad campaigns and false promises.

As the Lok Sabha election fever is getting hot, major political parties of India are running their campaigns aggressively to woo the Indian voters most of whom are uneducated, poor, and ignorant.
The main opposition party Congress is trying to form a united alliance with other political parties to defeat the ruling BJP headed by Prime Minister (PM) Narendra Modi.
Congress believes that an alliance of opposition parties can easily defeat BJP which received only 31% of total votes in the last Lok Sabha election of 2014.
However, BJP disagrees. BJP president Amit Shah said Saturday that all the parties which are a part of this so-called grand alliance fought against BJP in 2014 and lost elections. In 2019, he said, they will face a bigger defeat than in 2014.

“People are standing with grit and determination to support the leadership of PM Modi and the BJP. Our continued commitment and resolve for development will defeat the opposition’s attempts at spreading rumors and propaganda,” Amit Shah said.
He added that a failed and desperate Congress party has been indulging in politics of casteism and minority appeasement but people of the country have rejected this time and again.

Amit Shah’s comments have come at a time when Congress – which has positioned itself as a true Hindu national party – has stepped up its campaign to highlight the failures of the Modi government.
In a hard-hitting speech delivered Saturday, the former Prime Minister (PM) and Congress leader Dr Manmohan Singh said that the Modi government has failed on all fronts. He counted a number of social and economic areas in which the Modi government has almost destroyed the country in over 4 years of its rule.
Congress and other opposition parties are also worried that as usual BJP will win elections by tempering with the Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs).
Last month, Amit Shah had advised the opposition parties that instead of blaming the EVMs for their defeats in elections, they should listen to the voters. The BJP president said if opposition parties kept finding the reasons for their defeat in EVMs, their defeat is certain in 2019 Lok Sabha election.

While almost all politicians in India are corrupt – many are facing serious criminal charges – they have been winning elections by dividing voters on the basis of their caste, creed, color, and religious affiliations. Elections are also being won by bribing the voters, intimidating them, or by tampering with EVMs.
It is also observed that people who vote in Indian elections are so illiterate that they can easily be cheated by corrupt politicians with their ad campaigns and false promises.
As a result, illiterate politicians or those with serious criminal records (history-sheeters) get elected and behave as dictators with ordinary citizens. These politicians are supported by unskilled bureaucrats. People of India are almost dying under the misrule of such politicians and bureaucrats.
