Diss with brown people so it is not racist or anti-Hindu. DDM can say see western media is also critical of raising Hindutva.
Praise with white people so it is not racist or anti-Hindu. Modi can say see western media is also praising Hindutva policies.

In 2014, I took press clippings & video recordings of @YogendraYadav to file FIR & EC complaint against him.Concerned SHO told me his speeches in Muslim majority Mewat were far worse. But his hands were tied, couldn't take action.Even EC saw evidence I provided but chose 2 ignore https://t.co/5UNcnH9tUm

Ramana Garu issued a dictat so I can't discuss logical flaws in EC point on that case.

But 10 more hours for Rahul Gandhi as PM, all RAW agents are busy to find which beach in the world he is partying on with Columbian stuff that came fresh out of Senor Don Julio coffee house... Coffee house stuff is secret to his no-anger and cool behavior.

Rahul wins only... :(( :(( :((

I guess counting will start at around 8:30 PM where I am. I am hoping to avoid temptation and switch off from SM and BRF, watch a movie and sleep. Then get up a little early tomorrow and directly see the final picture. Will avoid the ups and down and BP problems as fortunes rise and fall during counting. Will be difficult to avoid the temptation to keep checking though and to convince my parents to avoid calling me up to discuss the leads and trends as they are glued to their TV.

Shyamji: I beg to differ on the significance of a few errors in any such VVPAT etc. Unless there is clear evidence of massive fraud/ huge discrepancy the correct response is as u said: "***** U!" Or more elegantly, "S*** it up!"
So yes, there will be errors found or imagined or alleged with no basis tomorrow. <<<YAWN!!!>>>

If they riot on that basis, riots will have to be put down and those who incited riots put inside.

Guys - while I know that we can only track & watch how things are going to be played out tomorrow, perhaps we can do something in social media to ensure the attempt at delegitimizing Indian polls can be countered ? Any suggestions on how ordinary folks like me can help ?

Go to the MGB party early, vigorously proclaim Akhilesh/Behenji is the mahdi, sample all the wares on offer, then complain of stomach ache and leave for the BJP party, vigorously proclaim Modiji is the Mahadev, sample all the wares there and then leave because you actually do have a stomach ache from eating too many samosas, go home, pop a Gelusil and sleep peacefully.

Relax on that. You mean to say champion of democracy China issues big statement on India? Trump says bad polls?

Like me don't follow twitters, your life will be happy. More violence and riots are in online than on ground.

Folks, any idea when the results will start coming in for East Coast time? I don't think I can sleep tonight so may have to pull an all-nighter. This is too important to simply turn on the TV in the morning and find out. Have a big day in the office tomorrow too :(

Oh well, can pretend I am on-call :)

Dang! :eek: It is only the fear of u-no-hu that kept me from making that SAME evaluation. :shock: Drunken JNU-grads in either a celebratory mood or utter despair vs. (never mind).
Anyway, any advice on the merits of going dressed as an EVM vs. going dressed as an Exit Pollster pls?

You are likely to be assaulted in either case, regardless of the result. Probably by the drunken JNU grads.

There is a good OpIndia article that is a copy paste of Quora post explaining the full process of election.

The IIT-IAS election officer explains it lucidly: https://www.opindia.com/2019/05/iit-gra ... ered-with/

You can use that info to knock all stupid claims.

ECI tweeted this, and later pulled it out. People say pressure.

This link probably has been posted before....this is the official page: https://results.eci.gov.in/

They have cleaned up the UI; and it is refreshing, clean and bold. Hopefully the servers keep up without crashing. They have an android and iOS app as well.

Thanks guys.

Reminds me of the night we watched the India vs Pak ODI in the 2003 world cup where Sachin hit the Rawalpindi Express for a six. We pulled an all-nighter, toasting each boundary with a swig, got pretty drunk by half-time. What a night that was.

And what a night this will be........

I think from Every election from now onwards, Election commission(ECI) should get a signed affidavit from each contesting candidate that
1)They have the full faith in current electoral process & rules as enforced by the ECI for this election in which the candidate is going to contest
2)They would not raise any doubts on the outcome post election using the claim that vote bearing EVM's have been tampered
3)Any doubts on the efficacy of EVMs have to raised & addressed before the relevant authorities before the model conduct is enforced ahead of elections

etc

ECI is already getting a signed affidavit from all candidates that "they have true faith and allegiance to the Constitution of India". Above declarations on EVMs can be clubbed to this.
GoI must amend Representation of People act and put this rule in to be enforced by ECI
