Harper Collins Releases Cover Of Rajdeep Sardesai's '2019: How Modi Won India'

On May 23, 2019, when the results of the general elections were announced, Narendra Modi and the BJP-led NDA coalition were voted back to power with an overwhelming majority.

To some, the numbers of Modi’s victory came as something of a surprise; for others, the BJP’s triumph was a vindication of their belief in the government and its policies. Irrespective of one’s political standpoint, one thing was beyond dispute: this was a landmark verdict, one that deserved to be reported and analysed with intelligence – and without bias.

Rajdeep Sardesai’s new book, 2019: How Modi Won India, does just that. What gives Modi an edge over the opposition for the second time in five years? How was the BJP able to trounce its rivals in states that were once Congress bastions? What was the core issue in the election: a development agenda or national pride? As he relives the excitement of the many twists and turns that took place over the last five years, culminating in the 2019 election results, Rajdeep helps the reader make sense of the contours and characteristics of a rapidly changing India, its politics and its newsmakers.

If the 2014 elections changed India, 2019 may well have defined what ‘new India’ is likely to be all about. 2019: How Modi Won India takes a look at that fascinating story, which is still developing. Talking about the same, Sardesai said, 

From Rae Bareli to Phulpur, from Nagpur to New Delhi, I heard voices on the campaign trail that only confirm my belief that 2019 is best described as the TIMO ‘wave’ election – There Is Modi Only. An oft-repeated BJP social media campaign slogan perhaps best illustrates this phenomenon: ‘Aayega Toh Modi Hi’ (Modi only will come), a feeling of near inevitability over the final outcome. In a sense, in an election fought across 543 constituencies and in 29 states and 7 union territories, there was only one dominant messenger who was also the overriding message. Never before in the history of Indian elections has one leader exercised such complete dominance over the voter mind-space.

The book is all set to release on November 25.
