Read Latest Article - Who will win Loksabha Election 2014? Final update (Opinion Polls)
Next Year, Biggest democracy of world India will see the biggest celebration of democracy in the form of 2014 Loksabha Election. These elections will determine which new political alliance or party will get a verdict to rule at the Centre. India is a country of multi-political party culture and here are hundred of national and local political parties in India.
There are two major political parties in India and they give shape to two major political alliances in the form of UPA and NDA. UPA is a political alliance under the leadership of Congress and NDA is a political alliance in the leadership of BJP. There is also a weak possibility of a third alliance in the form of third front; though, it does not have any strong face at present.
So far, UPA is ruling India for last nine years and they will like to win the 2014 Loksabha election again. There are a total of 543 seats in Loksabha and any party or alliance needs to win 272 seats to make government at the centre. In 2009 Loksabha Election, Congress was biggest gainer as it won 206 seats with gain of 55 seats. UPA (Congress+DMK+TC+NCP) won 262 seats in these elections with gain of 80 seats.
This was a great win for UPA and it got outside support from parties like SP and BSP. From last three and half years, the UPA government is running fine, though TC (Trinamool Congress) has existed UPA alliance over the price hike. 2009 Loksabha election were not good for NDA alliance because its main party BJP succeeded in winning 116 seats with loss of 15 seats. After the 2009 Loksabha election, many things have changed and both alliances know that it will be hard for them to win this election.
UPA without Trinamool Congress is likely to suffer major losses in the West Bengal election. On the other hand, it may be difficult for Congress to repeat same success of 2009 again in 2014 because it took 18 years for Congress to get 200 plus Loksabha seats in 2009. It is unlikely for Congress to repeat same performance again and it likely to loss 20 to 40 seats. On the other hand, this loss of Congress is likely to become gain of NDA.
Anti-incumbency factor is also likely to affect performance of Congress in 2014 election. However, good point for Congress and UPA is weak and un-united opposition. Despite this loss of UPA, it can make next government at centre with the help of outside support of third front or parties like SP and BSP. NDA can significantly improve its performance, if it can project a strong leader at centre.
