India’s 2024 Elections: Economic development and inflation

According to a report by the UN, India’s economy is expected to grow at a rate of 6.5 per cent in 2024. In addition, the country is expected to have grown by 8% in the previous fiscal year ended on 31st March. The Modi government has tried its best to push the country’s economy to the fifth position in the world.

Despite holding the Indian economy in fifth place, the Modi government has literally struggled to control inflation in the country.  The retail inflation in 2022 and 2023  reached 6.7% from 5.5% in 2021 and 2022, and 6.2% a year ago. Annual retail inflation was at 5.09% in February 2024. The opposition is eyeing this factor to gather voter’s eyes.

According to the CSDS survey, a significant 26%  of respondents attributed responsibility of inflation to the Central Government policies. Notably, only 12% blamed their respective state government. However, 56% held both levels of governance accountable. 

India’s 2024 Elections: Farmers demand

In the last election, the BJP had promised to double farmers’ income by 2022. Still, there is no sign of that.  Farmers protestors, especially from the northern region of Punjab, have forced Modi to reverse three farm laws. Again, farmers hit the streets this year demanding higher guaranteed production prices.  However, the protest fizzled out in a few weeks. 

India’s 2024 Elections: Corruption

Corruption has become a significant social and political problem for the Indian election in   2024. A government agency investigating suspected money laundering, arrested, or raided nearly 150 opposition politicians in the previous decades. It has been only about half a  dozen ruling party politicians in the same period.

The Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, a senior opposition politician who denies any corruption, has been arrested by the central government. Prime Minister Narender Modi says agencies are free to investigate anyone as per the “zero-tolerance”  policy on corruption.  

Opposition politicians have blamed Modi for misusing government agencies to target them for political benefits. Meanwhile, the main opposition “Congress” is battling tax demands, which it has known an attempt to ruin before the election.
