Note: I already have a dataset which is using Assembly Elections 2017 India data to predict results for Assembly Elections 2020.So we would need to work on that.

Investigate data sources. As a part of this data acquisition you are expected to analyse this data in terms of its variety, volume, velocity and validity, etc (Not in detail, just one liner each). This analysis would lead to one or more data products and potential visualisations. The potential data product will result in identifying a business reporting gap or need.
