This year has been many ways not only for the Modi government but also for the Congress. Priyanka Gandhi, another leader of the current generation of the Gandhi family, entered politics. Rahul Gandhi resigned from the post after the defeat in the Lok Sabha elections. There have been many other big political events that have done something this year that will always have political significance. Look at similar issues ..

1. Superintendent of power Narendra Modi

2019 was an election year. In the Lok Sabha elections that lasted from April to May, Narendra Modi emerged as the biggest leader once again defeating political opponents and then won the election on his own. In December 2018, the results of Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan gave a shock to the BJP, in such a way the start of 2019 was not spectacular for the BJP. But Narendra Modi once again proved the opponents wrong on the basis of electoral charisma and the strategy of partner Amit Shah.

In all the surveys that came before the results on May 23, the BJP was far from majority, but when the results came, everyone was surprised. The BJP alone crossed the 300 mark, the NDA reached over 350. Narendra Modi became the Prime Minister of a non-Congress government that came to power with a two-time majority. By defeating many such issues including Rafale aircraft stains, bad economy debacle, demonetisation, Narendra Modi created such an atmosphere that the entire election The issue itself changed and the atmosphere became like Modi versus Opposition. In which Narendra Modi’s Mahajeet took place.

2. Withdrawal of Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir

The issue of Jammu and Kashmir remained at the top of the country from Independence till 2019. When Jammu and Kashmir was merged, certain conditions were applicable in which the Valley was given certain privileges under Article 370. But Narendra Modi 2.0 overcame this issue in the Lok Sabha session even before his tenure. Union Home Minister Amit Shah came to the Lok Sabha on 5 August with a resolution proposing the withdrawal of 370 from Jammu and Kashmir, the bifurcation of states and the creation of a union territory.

Before the bill was introduced on 5 August, the Amarnath Yatra was stopped, phone-internet was closed in Jammu and Kashmir and politicians were detained. With the increase in security in the valley, political agitation increased, the opposition targeted the government but no one knew what was going to happen. The government had a majority in the Lok Sabha but did not have a majority in the Rajya Sabha, yet the BJP easily passed this bill in both houses. From October 31, 2019, Jammu and Kashmir, Ladakh became separate union territories. The BJP has been blaming the Congress for what it considers to be the fault of Jawaharlal Nehru.

3. Amit Shah’s election

In the Lok Sabha elections 2019, the Bharatiya Janata Party made many such bets which were shocking. The biggest of these was Amit Shah, who is considered the president of the party and Chanakya, to contest from Gandhinagar. The seat was held by LK Advani, the iron man of BJP, but this time the party did not give him a ticket and Amit Shah contested in his place. Amit Shah won the election by a margin of millions of votes, before which he was a Rajya Sabha MP. But now he came directly to the Lok Sabha and became Home Minister in Modi 2.0. After assuming the post of Home Minister, Amit Shah did many things including removing 370, implementing CAB. As an MP, Shah makes his presence felt in the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha and completely dominates the opposition in the House.

4. Rahul Gandhi’s defeat in Amethi

The Congress contested the 2014 and 2019 elections by keeping Rahul Gandhi ahead, but both times the Congress faced a bad defeat. This time the defeat was worse because Rahul Gandhi lost the election from Amethi, his traditional seat, while being president himself. Bharatiya Janata Party leader Smriti Irani defeated her in Amethi, before Smriti had lost there in the 2014 elections. However, this time Rahul Gandhi contested not only from Amethi but also from Wayanad seat in Kerala, even though Rahul lost the election from Amethi but won from Wayanad. Amethi Lok Sabha seat is considered the traditional seat of Gandhi family, from here Sanjay Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi have won the election. Rahul Gandhi was an MP from Amethi since 2004.

5. Lotus feeding in Bengal

When the Modi wave swept across the country in 2014, there were only a few states where its impact was not seen. These included Bengal but in 2019 this picture completely changed. Because Bengal became completely saffron this time. Out of the 42 Lok Sabha seats in Bengal, the Bharatiya Janata Party won 18 Lok Sabha seats while Mamata Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress was reduced to just 22 seats. Bharatiya Janata Party’s vote percentage in Bengal also increased significantly, which is being considered as Mamta Banerjee’s biggest challenge for the upcoming assembly elections.

6. Rafale Aircraft Controversy

On behalf of the Congress party, the biggest issue in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections was made of the Rafale plane dispute. The then Congress President Rahul Gandhi alleged that there was a mess in the Rafale plane deal and this was done directly by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Rahul’s allegation was that Narendra Modi has messed up in this deal to benefit Anil Ambani, but this bet of the Congress failed.

On this issue, Rahul who raised the slogan ‘Chowkidar Chor Hai’, Prime Minister Narendra Modi reversed the same and launched the slogan ‘Main Bhi Chowkidar’ which was applicable to the Bharatiya Janata Party like the ‘Chaiwale’ campaign of 2014. This dispute reached the Supreme Court, the Modi government was also relieved by the Supreme Court and the purchase process of this aircraft was found to be correct.
