The 17th Lok Sabha Elections 2019 concluded on May 23 and were conducted in 7 phases for 543 seats. And from the results declared, Narendra Modi is all set to become India's Prime Minister for second consecutive term after his Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) attained full majority in the Lok Sabha winning 303 out of 543 seats in the general elections. The Congress party, on the other hand, was restricted to 52 seats. Since the Modi led BJP has stormed back to power with bigger majority than 2014, expectations from the next government will be extremely high. Rahul Gandhi Likely to Resign From Congress President Post Today After Humiliating Defeat in Lok Sabha Elections 2019

So we got television actors to tell us what changes do they expect from the ruling party this time around.

Our PM Modi sir is only doing good for the extremely rich or extremely poor. But the middle class suffers, be it GST, property or anything. I think he should now work for the middle class since the prices of things are rising and it's not easy for a common man to survive. He worked hard for the black money to be out but has not been successful and should pay more attention to that.

We are known as a parliamentary democratic republic and the expectations are the same as they always were. The elected government representatives should be for the people because they are by the people. Before the elections and post results, the attitude towards the country and its citizens should never alter. Our country doesn't need a dictator but an efficient leader with skills that can promote and encourage growth in various sectors and at all levels. Unemployment, poverty, roadside sanitation, less power supply in rural sectors, inadequate amount of safety for women are some of the basic issues that need to be worked upon and strictly dealt with by the new government.

As a citizen of the country, I am looking at a very peaceful India. Everybody comes and promises things but one cannot keep up to it though. I am looking forward to a very peaceful country. There should be no discrimination amongst the people, the rule should be equal to everyone, be it the rich or the poor and that would make a better India live and a peaceful country to live in without any discrimination. Expectations from the new government are too many but to start with, I would just want my country to be a place where people come and say that it's a very peaceful country to live in and I don't know when it's going to happen?

I’m so happy for the verdict of our nation and I wish our honourable Prime minister heartiest congratulations.I expect the government to work with honesty and impartiality. I’m expecting more progress, cleaner India, more opportunities for the youth, gender equality, more protection for women and kids.

I feel that the government should work on the roads, there are so many potholes and as monsoon is arriving, it will get worse. So, I hope they work on it.  Traffic rules should be more strict. Other than that, they should work on the problems which we are already facing rather than focussing on inane issues. Cleanliness drive has to be more. Plastic ban initiative is good but still, plastic is being used so the law needs to be strict.

The most important thing in for our country is that the peace of the country is maintained, its relationship with foreign nations improves,  we become economically a very strong country. As we are a third world nation, people often look down upon us. So, I feel the economic growth of the country is very important. And I expect the government to work on these endeavours only because when the economic structure and growth of the country improves automatically a poor person who is not financially stable, will have a better living standard.

Expectations from the new government are that it should manage corruption, empower small business and provide equality to all! Complete at least 40% of what you promise. Political parties always have wonderful manifestos but they hardly fulfill those.

I expect and hope for three things first is the employment rate should increase. I want more people to be employed because there is youth sitting at home unemployed. I want them to get work so that they can contribute to our GDP. Secondly, I want the GST rules to be made simpler, we have a very complicated one right now and one more rule to control the population of our country because after a point the resources will get limited in our country. If a family has a third child, there should be some kind of drawback to that family because we need to control the population in our country, as that would also affect the unemployment rate and resources in our country.

My expectations with the government are very basic. The seeds they have planted in the first term, this is the time we want to see the fruit of it. 10 years is a good duration to make the world acknowledge the fact that we have gone for a change for the better. The whole idea is about basic things. They have targeted basic things which were ignored for last 65-70 years post independence like Swacch Bharat, etc.  I think this is the time they should look more after the ecology, environment and the farmers.  We should focus on producing quality food, they should start looking towards the environment and planting more trees. Things like a rally for river should be given priority.
