Day 341

The result for the assembly elections in Delhi, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh are out now. It’s not any surprise in Madhya Pradesh as the voters have paved the way for Mr Raman Singh for the third consecutive term on the basis of development.  Same thing happened in Chhattisgarh also. The voters have made two party assemblies in Chhattisgarh as BJP has won 49 and Congress has won 41 seats respectively out of 90 seats. There isn’t any scope of the third party. The major change or the centre of talk now is the result of Delhi assembly election. In its maiden election, Aam Aadmi Party has sought 28 seats in the 70 seats. Arvind Kejriwal has defeated Sheila Dikshit by 22,168 votes. This is something unthinkable. I can’t say that this is the first time that a Chief Minister has lost his or her seats in spite of being the Chief Minister for three consecutive terms. But there is a catch now. Out of 70 seats, BJP got 32 seats, Congress got 8 seats, AAP has got 28 seats and others have got 2 seats.  For simple majority, magical number of 36 is required for the formation of any government. But it’s not possible now. AAP has maintained equidistance from BJP and Congress. So, it won’t be possible to form the government there without the coalition between any two parties. Without that, it will be President’s Rule there. After six months, there will be re election for all 70 seats. Then it will be clear that that is going to form the government. Because if the AAP goes with either Congress or BJP then it will be going back from its promise that there will be no compromise or deal with any of the parties. I think that AAP has created confusion in Delhi. It has ride on the new change wave. Let’s see what happens in the future.
