A resounding win may chart out a positive path for the upcoming elections in Gujarat, MadhyaPradesh and Karnataka. Also, a win in Uttar Pradesh gives BJP an unprecedented advantage in the national elections scheduled for 2019.

 

BJP President Amit Shah  has been a force to reckon with for BJP in Uttar Pradesh

 

With UP, the ruling party will get authority in almost all important states. This victory will also help BJP to have a person of their choice as the President and Vice-President. President Pranab Mukherjee’s term will expire in July while Vice-President Hamid Ansari’s will end in August.

 

As the BJP expands its footprint in the country, the Congress reach looks diminishing.  The Rahul Gandhi-led party has resorted to taking support from the regional parties. The party joined hands with Akhilesh Yadav-led Samajwadi Party in Uttar Pradesh, and Janta Dal and Rashtriya Janata Dal in Bihar.

 

With the Uttar Pradesh loss, the Congress will have to sit back and undertake some corrective measures.

 

The trend is expected to continue till 2019 general elections and may further see the Congress losing a foothold.
