My booth in North Bangalore- Eben Enzer collage in Horamavu had only 125 votes polled until 10am,most were the seculars, i saw lesser crowd than the assembly election.
Crowd wise- BJP had the highest followed by the posher looking crowd at the AAP counter and the least in Congress.

From what I gather Bangalore Central is the toughest seat for BJP this time what with so many Mainority and sikular voters. If BJP can carry this seat then Bangalore North and Bangalore South too will fly the bhagwadhwaj.

in the polling stns I saw - 99% of itvity crowd are gathered at bjp stall and going to vote for namo. maybe there and there 1 or 2 "dissidents" and "activits" might have sneaked away from the mob and went with aap.
also the upper middle class went very early to vote, while weaker sections esp women need time to do some business or cook, wrap up in afternoon and then vote

I agree with some many urban sikular ghettos in central around the cantonment, its a tough seat for BJP overall. hopefully the communal anti-sikular vote can compensate :D

Is it Dhoti-shiver or Sari Shiver? Dhoti-shiver onleee.

Hyderabad: The writing was on the wall loud and clear, if the Congress needed further proof of its shrinking acceptability in Telangana, Sonia Gandhi’s maiden public meeting here after the creation of the separate state provided shovel-loads of that. The public meeting conducted in the Telangana heartland, Karimnagar, should have been a resounding success with milling crowds lustily cheering her, for the Congress has every right to share the honours, if not claim full credit, for the creation of a separate Telangana along with the TRS and the BJP. It ended as a damp squib. Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) supremo K Chandrasekhar Rao has every reason to smile, knowing that almost all his public meetings shine in sharp contrast. It was a story of too many cooks spoiling the Telangana broth. Utter lack of coordination among Telangana Congress leaders was too conspicuous for anyone to miss. Most of them were busy seeking Sonia Gandhi’s attention. The public attendance at the meeting cannot be described as even moderate, compared to the public meetings of KCR. Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) president Ponnala Lakshmaiah garlands Congress President Sonia Gandhi at an election meeting in Karimnagar district. PTI Sonia’s speech writer has completely ignored packing her speech with necessary punches, kindling hopes and raking up emotions. Also, the Congress leaders do not seem to have provided the necessary input to the text of the speech that she took less than 20 minutes to deliver. Election meetings, which are usually replete with spirited speeches and striking of emotional chord with the people, should never appear like an enlarged seminar. In fact, AICC Plenary meetings had seen larger crowds than the Wednesday’s Karimnagar public meeting. The organisers erected pandals and arranged chairs for the people to sit. Promises like establishing a 4,000-MW power project, construction of Pranahitha-Chevella project, criticism of the roles of the BJP, the TRS, the TDP and the YSR Congress, the Congress legislators’ efforts much before the floating of the TRS, the stoking of sentimental issues like the realisation of the 60-year-long cherished dream of people of Telangana have all appeared to be passing references. Sonia Gandhi could not launch a trenchant attack on the TRS, which the Congress will be fighting in the upcoming elections. It appeared as an attempt to keep the door ajar to rework the Congress parry’s knotty equation with the TRS in the post-election scenario. How much of an ice the secular card would cut with the electors remains a moot question. Of course, the Congress is not locking horns with the BJP straightaway in the election in Telangana. The Congress leaders, who are so naturally used to claiming that all is well even if something doesn’t end well, began asserting that the Wednesday’s meeting was a big success. Leaders, who were called on to the dais, greeted Sonia and adorned her with trademark tricolor khanduvas of the Congress.

Some paid obeisance to her by touching her feet. The introduction of Lok Sabha contestants and some select leaders was goofed up by Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee president Ponnala Laxmaiah. After calling out the names of one leader after the other, the TPCC president had to cover up his faux pas in a hurried manner when senior leader D Srinivas came onto the dais waving at the people. “Senior leader Dharmapuri Srinivas...yes…I have already invited him…I have already invited him…”said Laxmaiah in a very apologetic tone.

Soon he had to usher in K Jana Reddy also on to the dais. The expected euphoria and enthusiasm went missing among the crowds. The Congress should actually have summoned all its strength and made the electoral war with the TRS as the proverbial David and Goliath fight. But what clearly lacked on the Congress side was a giant leader who can establish emotional connect with people of Telangana. Almost all top Congress leaders of Telangana were either playing second fiddle to YSR Reddy until the 2009 elections or were at daggers with him. But none of them seem to have made any attempt to rise to match his leadership skill and alacrity in attracting the masses. Two successive defeats in elections dwarfed D Srinivas from offering an alternative leadership and Jana Reddy has his own set of inadequacies in outsmarting others. It was too palpable that the party could not mobilise enough crowds to make up for at least a dignified number of audience to attend the public meeting and the delinquent second-rung of leadership too must share the blame. The Congress proposes to oragnise two more public meetings of Sonia Gandhi and five of Rahul Gandhi during the electioneering. Whether the Telangana Congress leaders would pull their socks up to make them big hits or put up a feeble show is only a conjecture.

In koramangala [Bangalore south], there weren't big lines. This was at 8 in the morning.
I and my parents who have never voted till now, voted for Modiji.

I'm hoping Ananth kumar will win with good margin.

@Hariprasad

Great choice ji.

Ananth may have a patchy record within the Sangh but for the formation of a good central government he is preferable even over other honest candidates who will end up getting congress on our backs for another 5 years.

Voted first thing in the morning, though slightly unhappy we reached 15 minutes after polling opened. Not many people around, stuff was laid back here. BJP booth had lots of volunteers assisting folks in getting voting slips. There was a lone Congress worker/volunteer who sheepishly requested us to vote Nilekani. In the adjoining polling station in the next gulli, there were AAP folks and Congress folks as well but the BJP booth appeared well organized in comparison.

Voting for the first time after 20 odd years. I know, I know. Sea change with EVM now, process is smooth. South Bangalore has EVM VVPAT so might be difficult to do EVM magic here but who knows, its always the people never the machine.

Depends on how many secular votes the JD(S) etc can take away from the congress. Last time JD(s) secular candidate got 1.6 lakh votes vs INC's 3 lakh and BJP's 3.4 lakh votes.

Defective Pune EVM 'transfers' all votes to Congress

Is this EVM magic what people are tlking about. This could be serious thing and cast doubt on poll result.
PUNE: Early morning voters, including many senior citizens, were bewildered when an electronic voting machine (EVM) reportedly "transferred" all votes to the Congress.

The incident happened at a polling booth at Shamrao Kalmadi School in the city when voters found that whichever button was pressed on the EVM, only the Congress light blinked.

Some of the alert voters brought this to the notice of the election officials who stopped voting immediately.

"The Election Commission authorities have ordered a new machine for this particular polling booth which is expected to come soon," said local BJP activist Madhur Sahasrabuddhe.

The poll panel has also decided to permit around 28 voters who had already cast their votes with the defective EVM, to vote afresh.

Quick update on Bangalore North, where I did most of my calling today. Almost everyone I spoke to is swinging towards Modi!

PrasannaVishy tweeted that AnanthKumar might have a slender lead in South

One of the volunteers spoke to a few Muslims. Not surprisingly, they are going Congress

Casted my vote in Kannmangala village for Bangalore Urban seat. My Brother in law voted for the first time. There was huge crowd at BJP stall, we both took our voting slips from BJP. There were few people at JD stall but none on Congress and AAP. Met couple of more IT wallas in the queue and no one even knew BJP candidate name. They all just voted for NaMo.

My maid from minority community said she is going to vote for Fool (Lotus Flower) this time due to price rise.

yes for two reasons - one is funding and two is that he cannot release it publicly as it is not an exit poll.
Seriously it costs Rs 543 and the payment can be done by net banking so please subscribe. People spend more than that on movies and other entertainment.

Voted in BLR Central (Rajajinagar). Middle Class folks (mixture of North Indians & Kannadigas) and majority of their votes are for Modi. Our area has been pro-BJP even during the worst of times. However, the congress booth was occupied mostly by people from nearby slum.

Modi seems to have struck a chord with youngsters. I spoke to young guys who work in a factory in Vijaynagar (BLR South) and they said that all of them will be voting for Modi. I was surprised since these guys are highly caste conscious voters from rural Karnataka who have migrated to BLR. Even the young Bihar and UP migrant laborers who are working on our construction site are all supporting Modi. They have registered themselves in JP-nagar constituency and said their entire group will be voting BJP. Interestingly, both South and North Indian youngsters said that Modi has to be given a chance this time.

Won't be enough in some place.
But largely in a 4 cornered fight BJP will scrape through.

For long term perspective it is not a good trend. There is no alternative to pan Hindu vote comprising all caste/class representation.

35-40% voting across all seats of BLR from a friend on the phone, according to him its a dull day & he slams the city's residents calling them full of hot air! He's out on a citywide tour in his vehicle & has visited about 15-20 polling booths since morning just to observe.
