Delhi Election News and Updates
The Samajwadi Party has announced that it will contest Bihar elections independently. Announcing its split from the grand alliance with JD(U) and RJD, party leader Ram Gopal Yadav said support from other parties will be welcomed by SP. Yadav was sure that by contesting independently, the party will be able to fetch more seats than allotted.
Jitan Ram Manjhi, former Chief Minister of Bihar and the head of the Hindustan Awami Morcha (HAM), is asking for minimum 13 seats for his party in the upcoming elections in Bihar. As per media reports, Manjhi also declared that he is with National Democratic Alliance (NDA) and is not a chief ministerial candidate. Reportedly, he said his party has 18 MLAs out of which five have joined BJP and he is not ready to compromise on the remaining 13.
Many of the thousands of weavers in Bhagalpur, known as a silk city, are disappointed by PM Modi as they had expected the prime minister to announce a package for them but that did not happen. Successive state and central governments had promised to set up a silk yarn bank in Bhagalpur. The promise remains on paper. Modi's Bhagalpur rally was probably his last before the Bihar assembly election dates are announced by the Election Commission. During the 2014 Lok Sabha election, Modi had pledged to help weavers in Varanasi, his parliamentary constituency in Uttar Pradesh.
Addressing the tens of thousands gathered at the Gandhi Maidan in Patna, Nitish Kumar played the self-respect card as he mentioned Modi's DNA barb over a dozen times during his 45-minute speech. He said the large number of DNA samples of people of Bihar collected by his party would be sent to Modi from Monday. "My DNA," he thundered to loud cheers, "is similar to those of the people of Bihar." The Chief Minister dubbed Modi's remark an insult to Bihar and to the self-respect of Biharis. "Nothing is wrong with Bihar's DNA. The state has a glorious history. My DNA emanates from Bihar's soil. I was born in a freedom fighter's home." Nitish Kumar said he had established the rule of law in Bihar and refuted allegations that "jungle raj" had returned to the state after he joined hands with Lalu Prasad.
Union Minister Paswan dubbed the 'Swabhiman' rally of Janata Dal-United (JD-U), Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) and the Congress combine as a "flop show", saying Congress President Sonia Gandhi was "insulted at the rally". "The rally was a flop show of the Nitish-Lalu combine. After this rally, the Congress and JD-U should merge into the RJD," said Paswan. "Sonia Gandhi wasn't given priority as a speaker. She was insulted when she was asked to speak before RJD Chief Lalu Prasad and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar," the Union Minister added.
Bjp National President Amit Shah held a meeting with the NDA's allies in Bihar to discuss the strategy for the upcoming state assembly polls, though the main issue of seat-sharing was not discussed. According to sources, the Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (RLSP) and Hindustani Awam Morcha (Secular) put across their concerns to Shah and demanded that the issue of seat-sharing be resolved soon. Shah, however, clearly told them that talks on seat-sharing would be held only after Prime Minister Narendra Modi's September 1st rally in Bhagalpur. Shah assured the BJP allies that justice would be done to every coalition partner in seat-sharing. Shah also asked his allies to speak in one voice on every issue. Monday's meeting came following the demand of the LJP and the RLSP that the seat-sharing arrangement be finalised soon. The final decision on the chief ministerial candidate would be taken by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, he added.
Thousands of activists and supporters of Janata Dal-United, the RJD and Congress came together for the Swabhiman rally at the Gandhi Maidan in Patna. Congress President Sonia Gandhi, Rajya Sabha Leader of Opposition Ghulam Nabi Azad and RJD Chief Lalu Prasad were present at the rally along with the Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar. Nearly 5,000 police personnel were deployed for safety purposes. The sprawling grounds were full of green flags of the JD-U and RJD and the tricolour of the Congress.
Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar said in the Swabhiman rally, “"Modi had to go back on the land acquisition ordinance. He had to step back. This is the biggest victory for people." The rally was organised by the JD-U, Rashtriya Janata Dal and Congress alliance at the Gandhi Maidan in Patna. Attended by thousands of people, the rally witnessed Congress President Sonia Gandhi, Rajya Sabha Leader of Opposition Ghulam Nabi Azad and RJD Chief Lalu Prasad.
Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and RJD Chief Lalu Prasad are going to have a campaign rally on August 30th in Gandhi Maidan. This rally will be the first time show of the two leaders who joined hands to defeat the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA). Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, RJD Chief Lalu Prasad, Janata Dal-United President Sharad Yadav and senior Congress leaders are thoroughly preparing for the rally and aking the supporter to make it a grand success. Sharad Yadav said that the "Swabhiman rally" of the grand alliance is an answer to "Modi's arrogance and repeated insult to Bihar".
With the successful execution of the polls, the speculations have begun about the formation of the next government in the national capital. As per a recent India TV-CVoter exit poll, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) may win 35-43 seats, and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) may get 25-33 seats. A majority of exit polls predict that AAP may manage to grab the maximum seats, marking an improvement over its past performance in the 2013 Assembly polls, when it had secured 28 seats. As for the Indian National Congress (INC), it would be left with zero to five seats only.
Another exit poll, the News 24 Chanakya, whose predictions were right for both Lok Sabha election 2014 and Delhi Assembly election 2013; predicts that AAP will win with a majority by cornering 48 seats. It also predicts that the BJP will win only 22 seats and the INC would not even be able to open its account in Delhi Assembly election.
The Prospects of BJP, AAP and INC:
The BJP, AAP and the INC are all set to fight a highly complex and pitched battle for the 70-member Delhi Assembly.
The BJP is obviously feeling upbeat after its impressive showing in the general election 2014 and Assembly elections of several states thereafter. It also has a trump card in the form of Kiran Bedi as its chief ministerial candidate. Some former members of AAP and INC like Shazia Ilmi, Vinod Kumar Binny and Krishna Tirath too have joined the BJP in the recent past.
The AAP has emerged as a serious contender for power in the 2015 Delhi Assembly polls. It is giving a tough fight to BJP, notwithstanding the charismatic appeal of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the woman of substance - Kiran Bedi.
Scenario in Delhi Elections 2015 after Delhi Elections 2013:
The February 2015 Delhi Assembly Elections are quite different from the 2013 Assembly elections which were all about the historic success of the newly formed AAP. As the AAP-led government lasted just 49 days, the President's rule was imposed in the city-state and the state assembly kept under suspended animation. The BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government could not drag its feet further as the AAP alleged that the BJP was poaching its MLAs to somehow form its government. With the dissolution of the Delhi assembly, the stage was set for the 2015 polls to the Delhi Legislative Assembly.
Both the BJP and the AAP are leaving nothing to chance in the run-up to the Assembly polls. But the Congress has been left way behind in its poll preparedness. It has come out with the slogan - 'Toot gayi vikas ki dor, chalo ab Congress ki or' - implying a break in the development of the state achieved during the three-term rule of the Sheila Dikshit government. But, it has been running a rather lacklustre, low-key campaign. The reasons are obvious: 2013 has been a year of disaster for the party that had to face poll reversals in the General Elections, apart from Assembly elections in Maharashtra, Haryana, Jharkhand and Jammu and Kashmir.
Summary of Delhi Assembly Election Results 2013
The political greenhorn AAP achieved unprecedented success as it won as many as 28 seats; the INC had to face the ignominy of being left with only 8 out of the 70 Assembly constituencies, and the BJP emerged as the single largest party, winning 31 seats, while one seat went to its ally, the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD). The AAP formed its government with the outside support of the Congress party. But its honeymoon with power proved very short-lived (just 49 days) as Arvind Kejriwal resigned from the Chief Minister's post over the Jan Lokpal Bill issue in February 2011.
