Though the recent elections show a downfall in BJP's winning streak, Narendra Modi is still the forerunner for 2019 elections. Modi may have to take a long and unsteady road instead of the easy cakewalk to ensure this success. Mood of the Nation -  The 2019 Lok Sabha elections are approaching and it seems that the country is gearing itself for the big battle.
