Party has been projecting Modi as an efficient administrator who is capable of fulfilling the demands of people where Congress has failed in the past.
Aam Aadmi Party: The Aam Aadmi party has emerged in the past year as one of the powerful alternative to the other major political parties in India. Their win in the assembly elections in Delhi last year has proved their popularity among people.

History of General election in India
Right now the country is having 15th Lok Sabha which was formed by conducting elections in April- May 2009. The term of this government will end by May 2014 as it will complete its five years time. Thus it is necessary to choose the government for the next term before the term completes. So elections for the new term will be held in April – May for the same purpose.
The parliament of our country consists of two houses- Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha. Lok Sabha is also called as the lower house of the Parliament and Rajya Sabha is also called as the upper house of the Parliament. The members of Rajya Sabha are nominated and appointed while the members of the Lok Sabha are elected through public voting.

History of Politics in India
India has been declared as a Democratic Republic after its constitution was formed in 1947. India follows the federal form of government where Central Government has more power compared to the state government. There are a large number of political parties which are operating in the country. If a party succeeds to operate in more than four states, then that party is declared as a national party.
When we turn back and look into the history of Indian politics, it is evident that Congress has formed government and stayed in power for the most time compared to any other political parties. The other opponent of Congress party is BJP. With time it has been proved that BJP has rose to a better position due to the increasing dissatisfaction among people over the Congress party.
Politics has witnessed a huge unrest in politics during the 1990s as no party was able to win election with clear majority. In late 90s BJP emerged as the coalition party called National Democratic Alliance which was formed by the alliance with some regional parties. It was the time when some of the new parties came into existence like Bahujan Samaj Party, Janata Dal and Samajwadi Party.
In 2004 and 2009, Congress won the elections with clear majority and formed government with the help of some smaller parties and regional parties known as United Progressive Alliance. BJP remained in the opposition all the time.
Now, 2014 elections have come nearer. Each and every citizen of India is keen to know the results of the elections which will decide the fate of the country for the next five years.
