‘Electoral Mode’ or ‘National Mood’

Dear Madam,
So the “entire country” has made up it’s mind to vote in favour of BJP/NDA! It is a wonder, through which particular methodology, can such an assertion be made so convincingly! Has each and every voter of the “entire country” personally assured the Who’s Who of BJP to “gift” a third straight term to NDA! Or just like the saffron dictionary fails to see or doesn’t care to see anything beyond Hindi-Hindu in this multilingual multi-religious country of diversities; on the same vein, does their definition of “entire country” starts and ends with saffron ecosystem ie BJP/NDA voters only!
And if indeed “the entire country” has decided to vote in favour of BJP/NDA, then why premature declaration of win in “mere” 370/400 constituencies only! Shouldn’t the count reach the peak of 543 seats with the Opposition count being Zero, after all the “entire country” is voting in favour of them!
Since the BJP/NDA mandarins are so confident of receiving unquestionable support from the “entire country” as the “national mood” is in favour of them ; then we can remain assured that the “super confident” leaders of saffron camp would not care to rush to every corner of the country to engage in pre-election campaign asking for votes! So instead of wasting their “precious” time resource and energy in beating their own trumpet and character-assassinating the likes of Rahul Gandhi, Mamata Banerjee, Lalu Prasad, Congress, TMC RJD; the Who’s Who of the party and Central dispensation would surely prefer to remain in “Governance mode” till the declaration of the results of the 2024 Lok Sabha polls! The nation is eagerly waiting to see whether the BJP/NDA mandarins dare to keep “Electoral Mode” at bay by drawing inspiration from their zealous assertion of “National Mood”!
