    A sincere request to all at ISC- Election analysis (Updated).

    Friends, we are all aware about the State elections that have just been concluded and most of us are waiting for the results irrespective of our political affiliations. This thread is being raised with a simple request to all members to kindly refrain from posting threads (which leads to duplication in different forms) based on exit polls or individual speculations or calculations.

    We don't need 'breaking news' as we are not a news channel. Let us hear the outcome first and then analyze and give it a thought about the hows, whys and whats. Exit polls are basically business tricks and may or may not be productive.

    In case you still want to pour out your mind and want to do some political analysis as a citizen of India, kindly feel free to express yourself herein as a response.

    Updated- Members are requested to post their views and analysis on the outcome of the recent elections as a response to this thread. Let us have a healthy discussion.

    On eleventh March 2017 the fate of many political parties would be decided by the voters of UP, Uttarakhand, Panjab , Manipur and Goa. Yesterday the whole news channels were agog with their own predictions through exit polls. What I feel that exit polls out come may not be real but reeled as per the affiliations of the news channels but exact poll results which are sealed in the EVM's are the real one and the out come cannot be shunned. So the country is waiting for the real outcome to come and never give too much credence to exit polls.

    Well, to begin with thanks Saji for creating a thread that would serve as a single destination for all the discussions with respect to elections results, pr the possible results rather.
    Now coming to the topic under discussion, after the exit polls being telecasted since last evening, the BJP must be on cloud nine. Most of the projections appear to be going in favour of the BJP. It has been expected as either a party forming the next government, or a single largest party in almost all states that had gone to polls in February - March, 2017. As fot the status on my home state, that is Goa, the BJP is forming the next government. If that happens in reality, it would be second consecutive term for them. However, I do not think it would be as easy as the channels have been projecting it to be. I expect the BJP to gain more seats than other parties in Goa, but at the same time - it may not be a smooth ride as it was five years ago.

    If the voters pronounce fractured verdict in UP, then there would be horse trading of high order as the Akhilesh camp would never leave the chance to grab the power again and have already indicated to seek the Mahagagbandhan alliance with Mayawathi and that would be very opportunistic because SP never had the guts to have alliance with BSP before polls and after elections were declared and fractured verdict is given then it is surely a voter cheating move. But in politics everything is allowed and sustained. Let us see what is in store for every party on 11th March.

    A very good idea to avoid duplicate threads on a current issue of national importance.
    These election are spacial and important in the sense that on one side a strong and honest politician is trying to bring his party in power in states so that states and centre can progress together and on the other side there are various regional forces working against it who are only focussed for local politics.
    Once the results are out tomorrow, the correct and precise situation will emerge out.

    Knowledge is power.

    That's right decision to put thoughts here than having multiple threads. Mostly all are keeping eye on UP since it is considered as major base of Indian politics. Majority exit polls putting their bet on BJP. Excited to watch results now.
    Whatever results come but everyone should get opportunity to learn politics so expecting major changes this time.

    Goa seems to be coming up with a huge setback for the outgoing BJP government. With the counting complete for the halfway mark, the BJP and the Congress have been in a neck to neck fight. It looks like the state is heading for a hung assembly. Elections are likely in two years time again!
    UP and Uttarakhand have given the BJP a thumping win. Maybe a great relief for the PM Modi after a series of debacles observed over the last couple of months.

    The general inference I make is that, people get easily disenchanted with the existing governments. As elections are the only chance ordinary people get to show their anguish and dissatisfaction, voters used their secret vote very effectively.

    Irrespective of the party, nowadays all governments and parties forget the public from the day the elections are over. They indulge in self interests and help those monopoly and block vote interests only. Individual, ordinary , unorganised people do not get anything at al. So naturally the get betrayed and use their vote to defeat the unresponsive , corrupt and selfish, nepotistic government and party.

    BJP also need not regale much in this victory. The result need not be similar in the coming elections. BJP has to be more careful, and be more polite rather than becoming swollen-headed.

    While I want regional parties and national parties to be in the field, regional parties should not feel that they can dominate the national parties. Regional parties are needed for the development of states as each state has its own specific and unique needs.

    Modi and BJP should take this victory as a caution and proof that voter is always supreme. BJP should take practical steps to remove the feeling that they are pro- corporates. BJP ruled central government should take some concrete action to restrict price rise, and should not increase the railway fares. They should also take practical steps and see that banks do not harass ordinary customers. In fact banks should be made more client friendly so that people will take banking transactions more than cash transactions . BJP ruled centre should take sincere steps to bring to book the corrupt and criminals. Then only people will take them seriously.

    The present election results are right and relevant at this situation. No party need to be excited nor disappointed, but review their actions and approaches sincerely and take remedial steps.

    Let parties understand learn lesson that there is a silent majority which generally feels uncared and unresponded, and can show their might in a secret and fair election.

    So far as Goa is concerned, AAP has done its job beautifully. Although it could not open its account in the state, in almost every constituency, it has taken a considerable chunk of BJP votes. The Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar has himself lost. BJP has got 14 seats out of total 40. In a very recent development, former Chief Minister of Goa and present Union Defence Minister,Manohar Parrirkar has returned to the state to cobble out a coalition with Maharashtrabai Gomantak Party and independents.
    So, ultimately AAP's strategy would not bear fruits.

    Caution: Explosive. Handle with care.

    The people of UP and Uttrakhand has voted wisely. They have risen above caste and religion. They have chosen right party. BJP won 325 out of 403 seats in UP and 57 /70 in Uttrakhand.
    This is great victory. BJP chankya Amit shah has made the mission impossible to posssible with flying colours. I salute to the people of UP and Uttrakhand .

    The greatest wealth in this world is mental peace and good health.
