Delhi gives full support to AAP lot beyond the exit polls. BJP has been swiped away badly enough and Congress stands no where so far!!
BJP to Delhi : Fir se bolo… Ab ki Baar!!!
Delhi to BJP : bohot hua.. ab ghar ja yaar
The results are overwhelming for AAP but is it the win of Kejriwal or loss of Modi or is it completely the win of voters who are playing smarter than ever ???
Opinion Polls show AAP is maintaining a winning trend in Delhi Elections with probability of getting as many as 42 seats out of 70 to be able to make its government easily. Arvind Kejriwal , as per exit polls, show he still remains the major favourite as Delhi Chief Minister.
AAP winning Delhi would give a major setback to the ‘Modi Wave’ which is believed to have maintained its impact on state elections so far since 2014 General Elections where the wave broke trends of coalition govts by giving Modi a chance to make a majority BJP govt in the Centre.
It is undeniable that 2015 Delhi Elections certainly required a stern and prominent face like Kiran Bedi to be the face of BJP. Keeping in mind that Arvind Kejriwal had managed to counter-attack, if not nullify, the NaMo wave, in 2013 Delhi Elections. It might be an appropriate step to choose Kiran Bedi as the CM face against Kejriwal. A major common factor between Bedi and Kejriwal is that they both are not that great as team players. While, Kejriwal is comfortable as the Top Boss of his political party AAP , Bedi has joined a team where she might not have the liberty of being herself entirely.
While, Kejriwal is rowing his boat on his own , its Kiran Bedi who is on a ship which is Captained by PM Modi.
Here is a great article on Hindustan Times highlighting the similarities and differences between Bedi and Kejriwal if one might be interested to know in-depth about the way both handle tasks at hand.
BJP knows that Kiran Bedi joining BJP and being portrayed the CM candidate can ease the competition with Kejriwal but cannot eradicate the fear of loss. Keeping this in mind, party president, Amit Shah, has made aggressive plans to attack AAP and the BJP is about to hold 250 rallies within the next few days left for elections. These rallies include 4 rallies by PM Modi himself.
- Is the ‘Modi wave’ fading out slowly, that even after showcasing Kiran Bedi as the CM face for Delhi, BJP is campaigning aggressively with its top gun leaders including PM himself ?
- Is Kejriwal really a choice of Delhi as CM and Delhi feels he deserves a second chance after giving up in just 49 days, aspiring for the PM post ?
Is this AAP’s and Kejriwal’s yet another attempt to attract attention of commoners and media ? Kejriwal preferred going to jail than getting a bail against the defamation case filed by Gadkari against him for calling him corrupt. And now AAP is planning a mass drive against the arrest.
Will he be able to grab Delhi’s attention back ?
With the beginning of counting of votes in India,the verdict of the nation for the 2014 General Elections is getting clearer with every passing by minute. A record win for BJP and BJP led NDA and a beyond shameful loss for Congress.
Looks like it is a straight forward statement to the Congress and Rahul Gandhi and ‘the self-proclaimed Anti-Corruption Messiah of AAP’ Arvind Kejriwal from the nation. Be it Congress or the AAP,both were publicly denying the Modi wave and they were so right..they knew what people are terming as wave is a Tsunami for other political parties. 🙂
Addressing one of his rallies,Modi attacked Arvind Kejriwal directly by calling him a Pakistani Agent. He said India had three AK’s emerging as Pakistani commanders on Indian side – First,AK47 which was used by Pakistan to bleed India.Second,AK Antony,the Union Defence Minister,who had stated in the Parliament that people who beheaded Indian soldiers were wearing the dress of Pakistan army, while army said Pakistanis had come.Last July,Pakistani army had intruded in the Indian side and beheaded two Indian soldiers. The third,Modi mentioned,was AK49 which has launched a new party recently. This was a mock at Arvind Kejriwal’s 49 day old govt in Delhi.
AAP has emerged as a strong vote-cutter for BJP in 2014 which was quite visible in Delhi polls where BJP could not make its Govt despite Congress losing real bad.
