Elections in India

Assembly Election Results

The results of the October 15 Assembly polls in Maharashtra and Haryana have made the Lotus bloom in the states that have been Congress bastions for long. Clearly, the Modi factor is intact in India politics long after the 2014 General Elections. In Maharashtra, the BJP has come a long way from becoming Shiv Sena’s junior partner to a Big Brother to all other parties after winning 123 out of 288 Assembly seats, while in Haryana, it has secured the mandate to form the government with 47 of 90 Assembly seats.

The BJP’s spectacular performance in both the states has proved that its strategy to go solo was highly effective. It is the first time in almost 25 years that any one party has won more than 100 seats, while the Shiv Sena could bag just 63 seats in Maharashtra. In Haryana’s caste-ridden political landscape, the BJP has won a clear majority while other hitherto strong political forces had to bite the dust. The results dashed the hopes of Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) to encash the sympathy factor surrounding the 10-year jail sentence handed to former chief minister Om Pralash Chautala in a teacher’s recruitment scandal. The party managed to win only 20 seats in its stronghold of Haryana.

Gadkari, Fadnavis meet RSS chief ahead of Modi's arrival in Mumbai

 Fuelling fresh speculation in political circles, Union Minister for Shipping and Transport Nitin Gadkari called on Rashtriya Swayam Sevak (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat here on Saturday. Late Friday night, the Bharatiya Janata Party state president and prime contender for the post of the next Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis had met Bhagwat. In a related development, a large number of BJP activists in Jalgaon raised slogans in support of former Leader of Opposition and senior BJP leader Eknath Khadse saying that since northern Maharashtra region has never given a chief minister, he (Khadse) should be considered. With the Shiv Sena appearing keen to join a BJP-led coalition in the state, competition among various contenders within the BJP for the coveted post has intensified after a lull during Diwali. The BJP and the Sena are likely to initiate formal negotiations on the intricacies of forming the new government next week onwards and a decision is likely to be taken before the month-end. (IANS)  

Shashi Tharoor launches cleanliness drive

Senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor Saturday launched a cleanliness drive, asking "why cede Gandhiji's sanitation drive to any party" even after losing the post of party spokesman for tagging along with Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Clean Indian Campaign. The Thiruvananthapuram Lok Sabha member launched the drive at the Kovalam beach. Tharoor and a few other Congress workers and representatives of local bodies held brooms and took to the job of cleaning streets. Tharoor said it was Mahatma Gandhi who said sanitation is more important than independence. "Cleanliness is a national programme... not the programme of any particular party," he added. Prime Minister Narendra Modi had nominated Tharoor to spread the message of a clean India.

Modi praises media for writing about Clean India

Prime Minister Narendra Modi in a brief media address on Saturday said the members of the fourth estate were doing a service to the nation by writing about a clean India. "I am reading so many articles on clean India. Electronic and social media are also doing a comprehensive debate on it. This is a service to the nation. This is a good example of how the media can play a constructive role," Modi said at a media meet at the BJP headquarters here. He said that by virtue of these writing, an environment was being created where citizens are coming together to work hand in hand with the government. "Since independence, it was beleived that the government would do everything. But media is encouraging people to work for the nation. There is now an environment where citizens are realising that all have to work together," Modi said. He said he has had a close association with the media and that he wants to strengthen it. (IANS)

Times have changed, says Modi addressing media persons

Prime Minister Narendra Modi Saturday reached out to the media and said he was looking for ways to deepen his old ties with the fourth estate. Speaking at the Bharatiya Janata Party headquaters here, he said there was a time when he used to move chairs at the party office and used to freely interact with members of the press. Wishing the journalists a happy Diwali, he said the media can play a much larger role in shaping the future of the country. (IANS)

Right to Vote
The Constituent Assembly adopted the principle of universal adult franchise as the main method of democratic representation in the Lok Sabha and in the State Legislative Assemblies.

Election Process in India
In an election, various candidates of different parties contest against each other, out of which the people elect their representative. The stages of the election process of India include delimitation of constituencies wherein the entire area (the whole country in the case of Lok Sabha elections and that particular state in the case of Legislative Assembly elections) is divided into constituencies. After the demarcation of constituency, the voters' list of each constituency is prepared and published and nomination papers are filed by the candidates. Thereafter, nomination papers are scrutinised. The next stage is the campaign by all the candidates and the parties. The election campaign ends 48 hours before the polling. The last step is the counting of votes and declaration of result.

Political Parties in India
A political party is a group of people who want to achieve common goals by contesting elections and exercising political power upon winning. India has a multi-party system. Some of the major political parties in India are: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Indian National Congress, Bahujan Samaj party (BSP), Samajwadi Party, Communist Party of India (CPI), Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), National Congress Party (NCP), Janata Dal United (JDU) and Shiv Sena.
