Re: 2019 General Elections News and Discussion

There's a bump that winning side gets as counting day approaches its end. BJP would cross 300 and NDA should exceed 350 comfortably.

Suraj-san,
67% voting guarantees a wave in Modi’s favor. That high a number can’t be a new normal, it had to be a wave. This is a solid and unbiased fact!

Problem lies in complexity, risk and cost associated with the welding process not in making the alloy itself. The difference comes from the tempering temperature, higher you go more ductile/weldable/formable...
