Conclusion

  1. We found that prior to the COVID-19 taking over the news, India reads a lot about Politics, Cricket, Crime, and Bollywood. I was surprised to see Astrology as one of the top results as well.
  2. Then we looked at the sentiment analysis for the major political parties in India — BJP, and Congress. It is noteworthy to see that BJP is always in the news both for good and bad reasons.
  3. Additionally, we saw what both the political parties are talking about in the 2019 general elections. Congress seems to be mentioning Prime Minister Narendra Modi a lot. Also, farmers seem to be at the center of the 2019 elections, as they are at the moment in 2020.
