Is AAP the unseen hand in BJP’s victory?

What happened to AAP? They couldn’t have got BJP votes? Did they actually eat into Congress votes in crucial seats?  Are they the unseen hand in BJP’s victory? Did BJP win because AAP took few thousand votes away from Congress in closely contest seats? Yes, one can’t rule out this possibility but chances are fairly limited of this having happened. To reach to a conclusion on this matter one has to deep dive in each of those 20 odd constituencies from where AAP fought and look at victory margin. We are sure 3-4 seats may have been […]Read more

From Pappu Pass Ho Gaya to BJP Pass Ho Gayi!

BJP pass ho gayi. Can you imagine, BJP itself saying it? Looks like they are not even bothered to look at their target of 150 and are happy as long as they can form the government. It is almost certain that Pappu is going to be taken more seriously by BJP and this shake up gives a new reference point for BJP. The new reference point is “BJP pass ho gayi”. Congress is buoyant that if they can get a student who was looking at 90% + staring at 50-60% range, the game has changed and a […]Read more

Who has won Gujarat?

BJP gets to keep the state, BJP wins. Congress gets almost 50% more seats, Congress wins. BJP accepts that Congress did give them a fight and sweats, so Congress wins. Congress fails to defeat sitting CM Vijay Rupani, so BJP wins Congress hasn’t improved in Central Gujarat and North Gujarat, BJP wins In Saurashtra Congress sweeps ground from under BJP’s feet. Congress wins. Narendera Modi swings Phase II for BJP, BJP wins. Congress & BJP make it a bipolar election, they both win and all others lose. Election results have kind of walked Exit Polls. Oh My […]Read more

The Colourful Life Of An Exit Poll

Exit Polls are a unique species, loved by all and hated by some. That ‘some’ includes Bollywood which looks upon the exit polls the way a ‘Saas’ would on seeing her newly arrived cheeky ‘Bahu,’ in one of the typically tempestuous family serials on Indian television. The life and times of an exit poll in India is colourful, entertaining, analytical, intriguing, enraging, outrageous, fun and entertaining, all at the same time. No other event dies as quickly as it arrives, and during the time in between, attracts one and all like flies to food. On D-day, expect […]Read more

For India to live, Congress must die

Calling Congress party as a political entity is only as true as referring to Vijay Mallya as a social worker. Congress is not a party. Congress is not an option. Congress is a dynasty impersonating as a political party. Yes, it was a political party when it got going but, with the elevation of Jawaharlal Nehru to party president-ship in 1929, its character as an intrinsically democratic setup started diluting. With the unceremonious and dreadful exit of Subhash Chandra Bose in 1939, Congress, as it was formed, died and India’s first political dynasty came into being. Mr. […]Read more

Wheeler Dealer Vs. Reluctant Prince

Amit Shah and Rahul Gandhi make for a strange set of competitors. They are not like chalk and cheese; they are more like chair and chullah (Stove). They can never be at the same level or talk at that. If it was not for politics, Amit Shah and Rahul Gandhi would’ve never met each other. While Rahul Gandhi is suave and stupid at the same time, Amit Shah is smart and shrewd seamlessly. If Rahul is the reluctant prince of Congress, Amit Shah is a prodigy of the sovereign. They have their differences but they also have […]Read more
