Spearfish Friday Field Notes: Indian General Election May 2019

Following the BJP party’s ‘landslide’ victory in India’s general election, emotions are likely to be heightened in the immediate term. Spearfish advise the following basic risk management steps:

  • Consider where you discuss your political views in public. If amongst strangers, this could cause arguments or unwanted attention

• Be mindful that celebrations, or even protests, are possible in the immediate term. It is advisable to avoid crowds

• Closely monitor local media sources for any further developments
