    Exit polls predict big win for BJP in Gujarat. If that happens will Modi Silence Rahul in future ?

    During run up to the just concluded Gujarat assembly polls, the Congress President Rahul Gandhi made much derogatory remarks against BJP and also PM Modi. He used to tell GST as Gabbar Singh Tax,, and claimed no development at all in Gujarat. But the voters seems to have overwhelmingly registered their preference in favour of BJP and if that happens the BJP government would be taking some stern actions against corrupted Congress and even wants to punish those MLA's and MP's involved in graft charges and thus vengeance would takes place .

    Mr. Rahul Gandhi is formally going to take charge of Congress from 16th. Defeat in Gujarat and loss of power in Himachal Pradesh would enable him to do some soul-searching for himself (hopefully!). It would be preferable if he throws out some sycophants from the party, who are harming the party much more than others.

    But our PM won't be able to silence pathological haters. They would try to find fault in BJP's grand victories in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh.

    Retaining power with a comfortable margin in Gujrat will surely give confidence to the Central Government and the party to take some hard decisions. But the Exit poll results also predict the revival of Congress in the state and it will also give them to strengthen their hands to fight for the Finals in General Elections 2019.

    But one survey predict 135 seats for BJP alone and very less for Congress and that shows no revival for Congress.

    Chankya poll has predicted 135 seats for BJP. But Congress leaders and their pet journalists have already started saying that even one seat less that target 150 would be a moral victory for Congress! I was laughing loudly while a leader and a journalist were stating this 'moral victory'! And nobody is talking about Himachal Pradesh where the present ruling party in the State is going to lose very badly.

    I don't understand the word Moral Victory.Is it going to ensure power to those who feel they are morally victorious? Definitely, from election to election, there will be a change the percentage of votes polled and percentage of votes to each party. But ultimately the number of seats won only will count and decide on who will form the government. In such case what is the advantage of getting a little higher percentage of votes?
    Coming to Gujarat and HP elections, the results will be out on Monday the 18th December 2017 and the whole country will understand which party is going to form the government. All exit polls are declaring that in both the states BJP will get majority seats and form the government, in Gujarat, it will be incumbency vote in Gujarat and non-incumbency vote in HP. That itself will speak about the party and its policies. Anyhow general elections outcome can be predicted based on these two results.

    I do not think it will be a big win for BJP in Gujarat. They will win of course. The Congress is likely to improve its vote share. Something is better than nothing. The question of silencing Rahul Gandhi does not arise. The war of words will continue.

    My advise to Rahul Gandhi is to revamp the AICC a fresh and induct new blood of leaders who are young and energetic. PM Modi has good number of young people working for him as media managers and thus he was well connected with media, but Rahul is not up to date on the issues and needs nice home work done before he talks. Because what ever he says has become a joke for media and cartoons starts appearing on pages aping him in different manner. Let him learn the politics first.

    Mr. Mohan: I don't think Mr. Rahul Gandhi will take such a big risk. Encouraging and empowering young leaders are fraught with dangers for himself. If such leaders challenge his authority, what would happen? That day would be catastrophic for him. Perhaps you have noted how Sehzad Poonawalla has been thrown out of the party, only because he tried to contest against Mr. Gandhi in the Congress presidential election.

    Both sides have traded blows in terms of personal comments which is now behind them. Exit polls predict a BJP victory but these can go wrong. The election of the US president is one example of how exit polls can be misleading. Lets' wait for the results. Even the share markets and Sensex have gone up with the news of exit polls. If BJP gets a good majority in Gujarat, Congress would not be surprised as in reality, the Congress would hope to have a few victories rather than a majority win. Slowly Rahul Gandhi has to reshape the Congress and evolve strategies for the future elections. He needs a thinktank to help him formulate agendas and build the grassroots support and do good work as an opposition leader to be able to move the coveted post in future.

    The results are in and it looks like Rahul Gandhi has a reason to continue speaking and Mr.Modi has a reason to think about party's future rather than focussing on silencing Rahul Gandhi.
