As the nation gears up for the first phase of the Lok Sabha election on April 11, the ruling BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) seems to enjoy a distinct advantage over its opponents. The CSDS-Lokniti Pre Election Survey indicates that the national mood appears to be to give the ruling party/alliance a second term.

Over the last one year, the ruling party appears to have overcome the emerging mood of anti-incumbency and turned the tide in its favour. Each region of the country appears to have its own trend and political direction. As things stand in the last week of March 2019, the NDA appears close to the majority mark, though the BJP itself seems well short of securing a majority on its own. One must however hasten to add, that there does not appear to be any national wave in favour of the ruling party.
