In the course of the earlier 30- 35 years, there was once the idea of anti-incumbency, Modiji overcame that period and moved on. We’re starting to see it on the state degree. This isn’t solely my opinion however has been corroborated by all surveys and by hundreds of individuals with whom I interacted with.

Many leaders who had been a part of these protest have joined BJP.
