If BJP succeeds, it will signify mass approval for demonetisation

Exit poll projections aside, my gut feeling is that BJP may win 200 seats and form the government in Uttar Pradesh. The party may also form governments in Goa, Uttarakhand and Manipur. If BJP forms governments in four states, it will be seen as the culmination of a sustained campaign by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. It will also signify that the masses have given their approval to Modi’s demonetization move. It may also denote the trust the masses have reposed in the Prime Minister’s leadership, as Modi has frequently in his speeches said that his government was working for the benefit of the poor and downtrodden. Particularly, in UP, Modi’s campaign created a wave of sorts and Amit Shah used this to the hilt in the election campaign.
