Big News! Huge success awaiting Narendra Modi! Congress set to be decimated !

Axis-My-India of India Today ran surveys in Uttarakhand, Manipur & Goa. The three states will go to polls along with Punjab & Uttar Pradesh in the next few months.

Uttarakhand –

If elections are held today, the BJP will win the 70 member assembly with 38-43 seats. The party is expected to accumulate 43% vote share. Congress will come second & lose power with 26-31 seats.

As far as the preferred chief ministerial candidate is concerned, the people of Uttarakhand overwhelmingly voted in favour of BJP veteran & ex-CM BC Khanduri with 86% votes in his favour. Current Chief Minister Harish Rawat got just 41% votes.


Manipur –

BJP is expected to rise from a mere 2 seats in the last polls in 2012 to a situation of clear majority of 31-35 seats in the 60 member assembly. Congress is destined to get just 19-24 seats.

If these estimations are to be accurate, then this will be Congress’ second major defeat in the North-Eastern region after Assam. This signifies the further shrinking footprint of India’s oldest party.


Goa –

Nothing different is being expected from the state of Goa. BJP is set to continue to be in power with 17-21 seats with a vote share of around 38%. No anti-incumbency is being felt in the state & 76% people are satisfied with the Laxmikant Parsekar government.

Congress is expected to get 13-17 seats whereas AAP 1-3. Clearly the big talks made by AAP aren’t seen to transform into results. But then again we’ve seen such self-gloating by the party even during the LS campaign when Arvind Kejriwal claimed he’ll get 100 seats.


Other states –

BJP is seen to emerge as the largest party in Uttar Pradesh with around 170-183 seats way ahead of the BSP & the SP. However in Punjab, the BJP-SAD alliance is expected to lose, although no opinion polls have been released. The reason for this loss is primarily said to be SAD’s failed governance.
