EC's multi-phased polls have created 543 Narendra Modis | Firstpost http://www.firstpost.com/politics/ecs-m ... 11891.html … via @Firstpost.com

This loophole was first spotted by the late YS Rajasekhara Reddy in 2009, where in the first phase of Andhra polling he pretended to be pro-Telangana and in the next he went virulently against the idea – and won both regions.

This time, nobody has been better able to use this opportunity to micro-cast messages than Narendra Modi, whose campaign has depended on sending tailored messages for each region, complete with a personal appeal. In Amethi, he could be the development messiah picking holes – and potholes - in the Rahul Gandhi story. In Faizabad, he can make subtle references to Ram Rajya, and in West Bengal he can talk of favouring refugees with Durgoshtami in their hearts.

As per rules, the Candidate, his election Agent and Booth agent can inspect polling booths. I think photos appearing here of Rahul are legit. There is no violation. These are photo ops generally. The rigging is always left to non-official "supporters" to accomplish.

Speaking of "maa bete ki sarkaar to gayi" type fait accomply statements by NaMo are ery counterproductive. I am curious whether muslim-indifference and dalit-saffronization patterns also seen in these two regions.


In many ways, speaking of his victory as a fait accompli is good. It is taking away the fear of the voter. It is taking away the despair of the voter. All this was making the voter vote for the same rotten Congress and other Seculars, as if they can't change their fate. NaMo is telling people to really think of their future, to think of how they can best influence the NDA govt. at the Center to work for them, and that means by voting for NDA.

The bring out the voter campaign has been left to the Karyakartas.

I am told that every thing can be examined by the candidates, however he/she cannot enter the polling booth when someone is voting.

The whole party runs on the 'charisma' of gandhi family. If they lose from Amethi then there is no safe seat for them left anywhere in India (well may be Muslim League seat in Kerala). Also it takes away the super human 'image' of gandhi parivar.

Guys,

Don't let the case down by picking the wrong evidence....Smriti Irani is also not a local and is a registered voter in Delhi....SPG personnel cannot come inside, but candidate can come in the presence of Returning Officer and in the photos above, there is no SPG. I have personally seen many candidates of all parties take a tour of polling stations on voting day.

This will keep happening as long as CECs are appointed from among serving bureaucrats. We need a separate cadre for Election Commission that joins EC at young age and retires with it. Too bad the constitution makers couldn't foresee this problem.
