    Modi favourite for 2019 Lok Sabha elections: US experts
    Narendra Modi has emerged as a clear favourite for the 2019 general elections after the BJP's Lok Sabha election results were not an aberration, another noted that Modi would continue to lead India after 2019.
    "The Assembly elections do not signal much of a change. The Uttar Pradesh election results showed that the 2014 general elections were not an "aberration"," Adam Ziegfeld, Assistant Professor of Political Science and International Affairs at the George Washington University said.

    "It was a big win for the BJP. Its candidate won with much larger margin of victory than compared to the two previous winners - BSP and Samajwadi Party," he said.

    Modi has been established by this election as the "clear and favourite winner" for the 2019 elections, Sadanand Dhume, resident fellow at the American Enterprise Institute said.
    "Modi is the front runner (for 2019)," he said.

    Irfan Nooruddin, a professor at the Walsh School of Foreign Service at the Georgetown University predicted that in 2019, the BJP is unlikely to be get a simple majority and Modi would rather be heading a coalition government.

    BJP is running a disciplines election campaign state-by-state, while the Opposition fails, he said.

    The party does not do good in a state where it faces a direct opposition. BJP is beatable if the Opposition comes together, Nooruddin said, adding that the party gains where it faces a fragmented opposition and in 2019, anti-incumbency would kick in.

    In this election, the BJP played the cast card while pretending to be above it, Dhume who was in Uttar Pradesh during the elections, said.

    "Demonetisation is extremely popular. Indian people who have suffered themselves in the wake of the policy, it won their heart and mind. Here is this man of sincerity who struck a principled blow to corrupt and the rich," he said referring to his conversation with people in the state.

    Dhume, however, noted that Modi after this historic victory in Uttar Pradesh is unlikely to go for the kind of economic reforms the private sector would like to have.

    India is going to bump up its economic reforms that directly effects the people of the country, said Alyssa Ayres, senior fellow for India, Pakistan and South Asia at the Council on Foreign Relations

    Picking up four governments in states all across India, and having future prospects, it is unlikely to have an impact on foreign policy. Like demonetisation #IamNewIndia is the pledge that the Prime Minister is asking citizens to be part of his new India campaign.

    BJP will now pick up a lot of seats in Rajya Sabha which would help the ruling party to carry out its long pending reform like the land acquisition reform and labor reforms. They would tart picking up seats is early as 2018. BJP is looking at 2019 and beyond.

    Hunooz, Dilli door ast!! Lets not forget between now and the general elections , there will be state level elections in Gujarat , Karnataka, Rajasthan , MP & Chattisgarh apart from some smaller states .
    In 2003, following the positive results in the elections of Rajasthan , MP & CG , the Central Govt under the advice of Pramod Mahajan & other worthies brought the election forward by a few months only to be ambushed .The results came out of nowhere.The NDA was stunned & the Congress which was in political wilderness got a kiss of life .I'm not saying India in 2019 resembles that of 2004 but if the BJP exist in a state of hubris , they'd have only themselves to blame .

    The star campaigner of BJP and a RSS Secret Agent Rahul Gandhi is actually the unsung here behind this landslide win !
