As the 2019 Lok Sabha elections draw closer political parties are leaving no stone unturned to register a comprehensive win. The parties are carefully analysing the results of 2014 general elections to improve mistakes. In 2014, the country delivered a clear mandate in favour of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), this time too the saffron party claims to repeat the performance in the upcoming elections.

In 2014, there were six states - Guajrat, Uttarakhand, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Goa and Himachal Pradesh - which propelled the BJP to the top spot with the saffron party winning 89 seats out of 91 seats in these states. The BJP registered a comprehensive win over opposition in these six states. The saffron party polled more than 50% votes in these states, crossing the 60% mark in Gujarat. Except Madhya Pradesh, the BJP did not lose even a single seat to the opposition in these six states. The BJP won 27 seats out of 29 in Madhya Pradesh.
