10 reasons why India was painted saffron in 2019 elections

Without a doubt, it was the single man Modi responsible for such a massive win for NDA.  Also, all credentials to Amit Shah for playing an excellent executioner of Modi's poll strategies. The groundwork support of RSS in many states also played a crucial role. All this drowned Congress with only 52 seats. Even the magathbandan in UP could not stop the saffron painting of it with 60 seats out of 80. 

Ten reasons that painted India with saffron:
1. The TINA factor or There Is No Alternative, played a crucial role. It was fear of the people of India being without strong leadership that was capitalized well by Modi.
2. The Balakot strike by the Indian Air Force just a few months before the elections was another crucial factor. It was highly publicised as a credential of Modi, and he highlighted it in most of his poll speeches even after the warning of the election commission
3. The Hindutva card played well in Hindi heartland, and candidature of people like Pragya Thakur showed the commitment of BJP towards it.
4. The interim budget turned into a full-fledged budget and several sops targeting farmers, middle class, and many others played in favor of Modi.
5. The EWS or the Economically Weaker Section reservation of 10 % by a special ordinance during the last days of parliament helped it to retain the upper caste votes.
6. The 72 election meetings strategically planned by Modi all over India to garner the support of the masses worked perfectly
7. The publicity was to its peak with Prime Minister almost on the last phases of the election was giving interviews after interviews.
8. The  Indian electronic media as a whole supported Modi throughout the five years and more during the elections.
9. Namo TV a news channel suddenly popped up on 26th March after the announcement of elections and continuously streamed Modi's speeches and achievements 24 hours a day.  Many DTH service providers showed Namo TV free of cost. As soon as the elections were over on 19th May, it disappeared on 20th May
10.Last but not the least it was Modi and Modi with even BJP's policies sidelined which created a wave to paint India saffron.
