Even third front as talked by KCR may not survive long as there are many power crazy people will be there in that front. Congress winning elections is very remote. So BJP only win and they will not do any things like preponing or postponing elections may not be there.
Modi government wants simultaneous polls to states and Center by Oct next year ?.
Holding simultaneous elections - The debate of democracy..
So, it is not that BJP has changed its mind after the recent loses in the by-polls. BJP didn't plan for this to aviod heavy havoc but the save money and time by combining the two major electoral logistical exercise.
The NDA/BJP will try to do something by which it can capture the people's favour and retain the support and votes. As the NDA partners are leaving it one by one, BJP needs a few influential local political players in each state. To arrange and fix such alliance or working relationships, it needs time.
Once elections are declared the code of conduct comes in force and the government cannot initiate or implement or announce any new schemes and programmes. That will be its disadvantage.
So what the central govt may do at the maximum is to announce a variety of popular creative and imaginative programmes which may give relief and concessions to major vote banks. If the elections are advanced, then the government misses chance for a new budget. So my feeling is that the government may go for next year's budget in February and then go for elections starting from the first week of April, like 2014.
It is true and evident that the prospects of BJP/NDA is much diminished as per present trend and situation. The million dollar question is how much the diverse opposition parties can coalesce and put up a united front and hold on to face the next elections.
It needs quite hard work and convincing for the BJP to retain its present majority. Being the ruling party now, it has to face the anti-incumbency unlike 2014.
So my feeling is that the government will not advance elections.Instead, it will complete its full term, present next year's budget in February and then go for elections starting on due time, starting from the first week of April, like 2014
