Apart from the above, there is a list of many other public interest works, the process of campaigning will continue till June 30. From the district level to the national level, the work done by the Modi government is being publicized at both the party and the government level. It is not a bad thing to make the public aware about the work done and take credit, it is all right, but the BJP and Modi government are forgetting that the voter does not vote less keeping in mind the past achievements, but what is going to happen in the future. Gives more importance to him. The BJP and the government should understand this from the recently held Karnataka assembly election results and before that from the Punjab assembly election results.

The Indian voter has become very smart and aware. He gives priority to his future, being satisfied with what happened in the past, is more interested in what the government is going to do in the future. BJP should do more propaganda at the party and government level about what the voter is going to get in future and how the country will progress on the path of development. Significantly, the glorification of the past loses its usefulness after a point. Paying attention to what the BJP will do in the next five years under Modi’s leadership will give it more political mileage in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.
