The 2014 election was the largest in world history. It was the first time in 30 years that a clear mandate was procured. the face of this election was undoubtedly Narendra modi, whose rags to riches story and development background earned him many supporters. It was also marred by the most disgraceful mudslinging iever, with political discourse sinking to new lows. It was characterized by a high turnout, showing that the indian public is waking up, which can only be good for all.
