If the sAAPturds do well in Punjab expect the return of insurgency too, this time drug fueled. IMHO Punjab is the perfect receptacle of Kiev style colour revolutions. All the ingredients, a corrupt govt, ham fisted police, boisterous drug addicted pseudo modern population (also called tashan) are present. If hope the central govt is keeping its eyes and ears close to the ground.

cvoter is doing an interesting experiment. He is crowdsourcing the seat prediction for this polls. I am waiting for this one to see how close it can get to the real tally. And comparing with other stuff like exit polls.

Mamata's attacks on Modi are proof of the BJP's rising popularity in Bengal

http://scroll.in/article/663162/Mamata% ... -in-Bengal
Reports suggest that the saffron party could win four constituencies in the election and limit the TMC's share to between 18 and 22 seats.
The IB has also predicted that if BJP successfully maintains this influence on Bengal politics, Mamata may face a bigger challenge from them in 2016 assembly elections.

...
It is most likely that the confrontation between Mamata and Modi will intensify in the coming days. If Modi takes power at the Centre, there is a real threat of crackdown on TMC leaders involved in Saradha scam. This could alter power relations in the state.

However, Mamata appears to be up for the challenge. When she took on the mighty Community leader Jyoti Basu, she enthused her party workers and rural supporters with the image of herself, a single sari-clad chappal-wearing woman, as David fighting Goliath. Targeting Modi may be the part of the same strategy.

Why not, he is the best BJP candidate in fray both as a person and as a politician! But Bajwa is also fighting a hard battle, AAP getting a higher vote percentage can lead to uncertain outcomes. Pray to lord that they cut INC more than BJP. On personal side, got 60+ to go lotus :)

Mamata Model: Paranoia and vote-bank politics

http://www.rediff.com/news/column/ls-el ... 140429.htm
There is indeed a Bengal Model but it is one which negates generational aspiration, generates animus, thrives on bloodletting and political vendetta, reiterates outdated ideas of vote bank politics, is shorn of any vision or roadmap for reconstruction and is fast depleting the levels of a legitimate tolerance, says Dr Anirban Ganguly.
The politics that Mamata perpetuates and promotes is essentially the expressions of a mind which is obsessively paranoid and only survives on confrontation, delusions of grandeur, threats of elimination and through the appeasement of a particular religious community. So acute is Mamata’s suffering from delusions of grandeur that about two months back she had started talking of “a pre-paid federal front” which would form the next government at the Centre with her as the queen-bee. The spectre of 50,000 odd empty chairs at the Ramlila Ground and her trusted lieutenants singing nostalgic Bollywood tunes to fluttering Trinamool flags, has, it seems, interrupted those hallucinations.

Her negative attributes may have won for Mamata her battle with the Left-front but in Bengal today, with a steep rise in the aspiration and demand for the politics of positive fulfilment, Mamata appears to be out of depth and her role seems to have been limited to being the catalyst that threw out the oppressive three decade’s Left rule. Today she comes across as being truly incapable of reinventing herself to respond to new aspirations of the people of Bengal.

What Mamata has done is to replicate the Left’s brand of negative politics by adding to it her own distinctly unbalanced approach to issues and situation. While the Left appeased and ghettoised the minorities of Bengal, Mamata has ensured that she thrives by keeping them further ghettoised. While the aspirational sections among the minorities look towards a forward movement, “Didi” is satisfied by handing out doles and by controlling them for her political ends. What has actually happened in Bengal in the last three years is that the entire “lumpen-proletariat” lot that the “bhadralok” Communists had nurtured and abetted over the years have now switched allegiance to “Didi”.

The situation thus, for the common man, who had voted for an epochal change by booting the Left front out, remains much the same. Quotidian life in Mamata’s Bengal remains plagued by instability, lawlessness, belligerence, intimidation, violence spilling out of intra-party feuds and the proverbial demand for “chanda” (hafta) from the party affiliated local club just because you have slogged and have done well in life! Poriborton in Bengal is a false one, an illusion of poriborton that has done the ordinary voter no good.

The only effect of this false poriborton has been the open expression of appeasement politics. The border villages in Bengal are unsafe and women cower in fear because hoodlums of local cattle-trafficking gangs have a free run under protection of political groups. While the Left changed the demographic pattern of the state by encouraging infiltration in order to create a captive vote-bank, Mamata has allowed the issue to build up by giving a free run to groups that encourage and protect infiltrators. So great is the fascination of some Trinamool leaders with radical Islam, that it led a few of them to provide shelter to some of the most rabid elements of the Jamaat who fled Bangladesh. Rediff.com brought notice to this disturbing fact early this year and yet Mamata managed to erase the issue with her hectoring on secularism.

Imams openly dictate policy and guide ‘Didi’. The moment the Imam of the Tipu Sultan Masjid, the voluble Barkati -- who had earlier threatened Mamata with rejection if she did not fulfil the community’s agenda -- directed Mamata to be “critical of Narendra Modi” just the way Rahul Gandhi is, she jumped into the fray with renewed vigour and a replenished stock of expletives against the BJP leader and his party. Interestingly it is the same Imam who revels in always telling his listeners “you must understand who ruled Hindustan for 1,000 years.”

Similarly when the general secretary of a fringe group, the All Bengal Minority Youth Federation ordered the chief minister to not meet the US envoy, Mamata, succumbing to the dictate backed out. While Mamata talks of not supporting a “riotous government” and lectures on secularism and harmony, her own turf of Bengal saw communal clashes rise to an all time high in 2013 and stood at 106 from 12 in 2008 and 2009. Hundreds of communal clashes have taken place over three years in rural Bengal under “Didi’s” stewardship with groups trying to snatch away temple land, ancestral properties and especially targeting women. And true to her intolerant nature, Mamata regularly lets loose her state machinery against those who try to resist or highlight these atrocities committed under her watch.

Mamata has emerged, not as the pan-Bengal leader that the people yearned for, but as a rather maverick and myopic manager who tries to keep her flock afloat simply by lecturing, cajoling and threatening -- staging a series of dramas. Devoid of any defining vision or direction, West Bengal under Mamata Banerjee is fast turning into a political cesspool.

When an “articulate” Trinamool leader talked of the “Bengal Model”, he had probably not taken into account the reality as it was -- yes, there is indeed a Bengal Model but it is one which negates generational aspiration, generates animus, thrives on bloodletting and political vendetta, reiterates outdated ideas of vote bank politics, is shorn of any vision or roadmap for reconstruction and is fast depleting the levels of a legitimate tolerance.

Such a model is not for India nor is it for Bengal!

NO. there would still be 100+ seats in May 7 and May 12. diff between victory and a uneasy truce. TDP needs to deliver bigtime on May7 to ensure Jagan does not emerge as a vital player on May 16.

the battle is not over until the 1st ByeloRussian and 1st Ukrainian joint tank armies roll down past Brandenburg gate in Berlin with the ruins of the Reichstag on the background.

My Gujarat result wish list. Was ONLY afraid of HEAT ... ADMIN REMOVED THIS. GO EASY ON THE F TYPE WORD

Was in Gandhinagar Ahmedabad on weekend and saw practically NO election Noise making rallies , No bill boards. Really did not feel election time. People can correct me if wrong. Saw only 3 -4 bill board of Namo in 3-4 days ; rest life as usual.

But Lots of confidence in public that BJP from 26 to 22. ( More educated polished , Soft spoken, reserved conservative nice talking giving 22; More local rishawalas , uneducated , brush , bindas bool, confident giving 26 for sure ). People talking of 90% Voting for Ahmedabad for creating records. More local person is , more rikshawala-type aam admi - boosting and boasting Namo like anything. He is GOD. He challenged me tell me why would be vote anyone else etc etc etc.

Loved to see way he was convincing me WHY BJP haha

I could feel BJP has House level connection from karyakarta. They know who voted and who HAS STILL not voted by noon. Ground troops know when to come out to wave at road rally for biggies.
Excellent time management. Know when the leader is to pass the lane. Arrive 10 min earlier.

Best ) 26 BJP
Second best ) 25 BJP 1 Vagela
Third best ) 24 BJP 1 Vagela , 1 Solanki
Fourth Best ) 23 BJP 1 Vagela , 1 Solanki , 1 Dinsha Patel
Fifth Best ) 22 BJP 1 Vagela , 1 Solanki ,1 Disha Patel , 1 Chimmanbhai Patel's son.

Visit Chimmanbhai Patel started College. Heard Local jokes etc.

NOTE :
(1)BJP is Winning ,
(2)RSS is Winning ,
(3)Namo Winning
(4) Development is Winning ,
(5)Local Leaders is Winning ~~NOT CONGRESS~~~.

Will settle for 24 seeing earlier voting percentage trends.

250 For BJP Is Possible


The total now rises to 155 to 160 seats. Now for a few other states. One should expect the BJP to win 14 of the 28 seats in Karnataka; seven of the 10 seats in Haryana; five of seven seats in Delhi NCT; 20 of the 48 seats in Maharashtra; 10 out of 42 in Andhra Pradesh; and perhaps eight of the 21 seats in Odisha by eliminating the Congress and getting a few Biju Janata Dal seats as well. This sub-total is 64 seats. (fulcrum 3 aggregate)


Let us see if all the four fulcrums manage well!


10 out of 42 in AP doesnt look realistic for BJP alone

Going by 5forty3 reports, it looks like AAP is performing at an optimal level for BJP in Punjab. NaMo-bhakts should be thankful to AAP.
