The elections are upon us. This time around, every political party is trying to get the youth on their side. If handing out cheap tablets and laptops wasn't enough, the politicians are making their presence felt on social networks such as Facebook and Twitter. Determined to leave no stone unturned, big political parties and their supporters are now coming up with smartphone apps.
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is currently the main opposition party in India. The app gives you information about how this party grew so big after a humble start in 1980. Of course the party's roots lie in Bharatiya Jana Sangh, which was established in 1951. Apart from these topics, the software notifies you about the party's recent achievements (?) and nearest poll booth in your locality.

Founded in 1885, the Indian National Congress is one of the biggest political parties in India. It's currently the country's main ruling party. The app With Congress gives you access to news, videos, and images. It also serves as a medium to spread the message and ideology (sorry?) of the Indian National Congress.

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP)
AAP is probably the most tech-savvy party in India. Online campaigns have been one of the main driving forces behind the party's success. The mobile app takes this a step further, allowing you to access all the updates related to Aam Aadmi Party. The app also enables you to connect to the party members via Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ integration.
