Rajdeep Sardesai's '2019: The Modi Election' Is All Set To Release In November 2019

The book will be published by Harper Collins India and will be talking the 2014 Lok Sabha elections and how it has impacted the 'New India' of 2019.


‘If the 2014 elections changed India, 2019 might well have defined what “new India” is likely to be all about.’- Rajdeep Sardesai 

On 23 May 2019, when the results to the general elections were announced, Narendra Modi and the BJP-led NDA coalition was voted back to power with an overwhelming majority. To some, the numbers of Modi’s victory came as something of a surprise; for some, the BJP’s triumph was a vindication of their belief in the government and its policies. But irrespective of one’s political standpoint, one thing was beyond dispute: this was a defining verdict, one that must be understood and discussed with intelligence and without bias.

Rajdeep Sardesai’s new book, 2019: The Modi Election, will do just that. Sardesai will take readers through the excitement of the various twists and turns that have taken place over the last five years, which led to the 2019 election results.

As Rajdeep says, If the 2014 elections changed India, 2019 might well have defined what ‘new India’ is likely to be all about. 2019: The Modi Election will take a fascinating look at that story, which is still developing.

I am delighted to be writing 2019: The Modi Election, which will be published by HarperCollins later this year. We are living through momentous times and I do believe we need to try and make sense of the rapidly changing India, its politics and its newsmakers. The 2019 elections, much like the 2014 elections, has seen a landmark verdict, one that deserves to be reported and analysed in a free and fair manner. I look forward to working closely with the team at HarperCollins in bringing this remarkable story to readers. - Rajdeep Sardesai
