Narendra Modi and Rahul Gandhi – Who will Kiss the Trophy?
Karnataka Election Result. Every eye of India are set towards the Karnataka Election Result and are eagerly waiting towards May 15th to see how the Kannada people are thinking. The political winds are blowing very fast and approach to its outcome. We need to wait up to 15th to see whether it’s Rahul or Modi wins the game, but undoubtedly, we can say that this will be a clear indication of the Indian future politics.
The outcome will definitely galvanize the leading political parties; BJP and the Congress and could have a definite impact on the coming Assembly elections in the other states like Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, and Mizoram. The result will definitely set the ball rolling for future strategies and alliances among the political parties. This is the reason why all political parties and the media houses are eagerly watching the developments in Karnataka.
What Impact Would Karnataka Election Result Make In 2019 General Elections?
What happens if the BJP wins Karnataka
Karnataka election result is very crucial for BJP and they acknowledge the fact. It’s very vital for them to regain confidence followed by the recent bye-poll defeats and to prove that Modi effect is still working. If they win, this will ensure them that they are fully equipped their arms to face coming assembly elections and look forward to the 2019 General elections with confidence. It will be a boosting element for the Modi-Shah duo and put a big question mark on Rahul Gandhi’s dreams to become the next Prime Minister.

Effects on the Third Front
A BJP win will definitely a boosting element to the formation of non-Congress Third Front alliances to face 2019 Lok Sabha elections. The symptoms were aroused from different sides including Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) chief K Chandrasekhar Rao, who announces his entry into national politics. Rao has received support from various political leaders, including West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee and All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi. Rao has targeted both the BJP and the Congress, saying they have failed to provide an efficient government to the people of this country, setting the stage for the formation of a front that excludes both parties.
At present, definitely, Congress is riding the horse from the front and taking the lead for alliances against the common enemy. However, if the Karnataka Election Result is not in favour, it can be an added fuel for others to rethink on any alliances under Rahul’s leadership. Mamata Banerjee, in particular, could halt Rahul’s ambition to emerge as an alternative to Modi if the Congress loses this key state.
Uttar Pradesh – The Game Planner
UP is the backbone of BJP’s national dominance and definitely, that would be the key in their future game plan as well. The rise of saffron in northeast resulted in the union of decades-old enemies BSP and SP and that alliance reap its dividends in Gorakhpur and Phulpur. If BJP able to win over the Karnataka Election Result, Mayawati may continue this alliance with Akhilesh for Lok Sabha elections.
Shiv Sena has already announced its strategy to contest in Maharashtra and Lok Sabha elections separately. At present Shiv Sena’s alliance with BJP in the state is not easy and it raises a big question mark in the coming elections. They publicly raise their voice against Narendra Modi’s policies and his leadership style. However, If BJP can win the Karnataka election, then it might be a reason for Sena to rethink its strategy.
In Jammu & Kashmir, the alliance ministry between BJP and PDP is not smooth and started creating contradictions and difference in opinions. The recent developments from J&K have increased the gap between these two parties and may deepen in the days to come. However, again a win in Karnataka forces PDP also for a re-think and stick to its alliance with BJP despite the disagreements.
Ram Vilas Paswan’s LJP

Ram Vilas Paswan’s LJP has already declared its intention to continue its alliance with BJP in the 2019 General elections. A positive result in Karnataka will help BJP to confirm his support deeper. Furthermore, a favorable result in Karnataka may encourage more regional parties including YSR Congress in Andhra and Rajinikanth’s party in TN to have an alliance with BJP and that will increase their vote share in the coming elections.
If the Karnataka Election Result 2018 is in Favour of Congress
The other chance before us is a Congress win. Definitely, Congress is expecting nothing other than a victory in Karnataka. A victory in Karnataka will be a huge boost for the Congress and its proposed PM candidate Rahul Gandhi for sure. The present statistics of India’s first National Party is very pathetic and is disappointing for the Congress workers. At present, it has 48 MPs in Lok Sabha and the ruling state has been limited to just 3 including Karnataka and one Union Territory of Puthuchery. To regain the lost power and as a struggle for existence strategy, 20 opposition parties joined together at an event organized by the former Congress President Sonia Gandhi. Almost all the leaders of major opposition parties were present at the dinner and a win here in Karnataka would definitely an added fuel for the rolling wheels of this alliance effort and strengthens Congress’ efforts to guide from the front.

The win situation will be a boosting element for the coming assembly elections as well. The party will gain confidence to win against the attack by the Modi-Shah combine in the coming elections as well. Above all, a favorable outcome from Karnataka will definitely become a boosting element for Rahul Gandhi’s leadership and may force the other opposition parties and regional parties to accept Rahul’s leadership to fight against BJP – the common enemy.
