Can Modi’s strategies change the game of 2019 elections?

Depends what are his strategies.

Besides, BJP is slated to win General Election 2019. So, there won’t be any “change” in the game per your question. Things will remain the same.

As we move closer and closer to the big month, we’ll hear more of inflaming, divisive statements from the BJP leaders. The same ‘samsaan-kabrastaan’ lines will take different words but will have the same purpose and fundamentals: polarize the voters. And we can’t really expect much any way. When their “star campaigners” include the likes of Yogi Adityanath, Amit Shah, Sakshi Maharaj, and who-not—it’s fairly common to expect such absurd and communally-charged speeches.

So, if that’s the “strategies” you’re talking about in your question, YES, it will work. It will work to help the ruling party to have a home run again. In fact, this time in General Election 2019 – unlike the last election – things will work beyond well for the BJP because they virtually have 90 percent of the media by their side. Back then, their ministers did the dirty deeds, with big names hiding behind the garb of development. This time they have media by their side, spreading mass-level propaganda of Hindu vs Muslim.

So, yes, PM Modi’s “strategies” will work even this time in General Election 2019.

It’s mind-numbingly-surprising how even after its failure on the socio-economic front, BJP still manages to pull supporters by just triggering the Hindu vs Muslim debate. It’s surprising how with loot-like-demonetization, distress farmers, youth unemployment, growing hunger, poorer media freedom index and so much more—how even with all these things, the ruling party looks so confident in its support and win just based on its “strategies” that includes playing the Hindu nationalist card.

Perhaps they aren’t confident exactly on their “strategies” but on voter’s brainwashed, zeroing IQ. Or maybe they are confident of Congress’s incompetency to do anything.

But, nonetheless. In short, yes, Modi and his party’s “strategies” will work in General Election 2019.
