Updated: May 16 2016 8:55 am In 2011 in the four states put together the BJP had a minuscule fraction of seats (06 per cent) and an average voteshare of just 5 per cent In the 2014 general election the BJP saw a large increase in its weighted voteshare in these four states Related News Sometimes it is a curse to be spot on Scoring a bull’s eye with the Bihar election (my forecast was 175 seats for the JDU+ and 60 seats for the NDA; the actual result was 178 seats for JDU+ and 58 for the NDA) raises expectations but the only way to go is down Further the international environment is not very conducive to psephologists Most pollsters have bitten the dust in forecasting the US presidential election Everyone had counted Donald Trump out of the race and he’s the presumptive Republican candidate Most didn’t give Bernie Sanders a chance and he’s continuing to give Hillary Clinton a strong fright As it happens Trump and Sanders are in my opinion very similar in their appeal and their demagoguery So perhaps we should have seen it coming India too has four big states that have just finished polling (or will by today) — Assam Kerala Tamil Nadu and West Bengal The results will be announced on May 19 There are very few opinion polls and there’s considerably less excitement than at the time of the November 2015 Bihar election But there should be substantial interest because there’s a not-so-small probability that this election could be just as momentous for the BJP as the Bihar election possibly more This is where informed analysis (also known as speculation) begins and obviously there’s very little to go on except for historical trends and scattered opinion polls Both tell the same story Before explaining what the story is I present some facts In each of the four states the BJP made strong inroads in the 2014 general election compared to the 2011 assembly results In 2011 in the four states put together the BJP had a minuscule fraction of seats (06 per cent) and an average voteshare of just 5 per cent In the 2014 general election the BJP saw a large increase in its weighted voteshare in these four states (an average of 205 per cent) with the largest increase in Assam where they “obtained” a majority in terms of leads (69 out of 126 seats) and a voteshare of 369 per cent As the BJP did exceedingly well (relative to its own 2011 performance) in the general election the main question is not who will win but who will the BJP 2014 voter vote for (except in Assam) In states other than Assam the party BJP voters switch to will very likely be the winner Let’s do a spot check on BJP voters in three states West Bengal: Likely to switch to Mamata Banerjee’s TMC if at all If the voter stays with the BJP this will result in a split vote likely to help the TMC (as happened in 2014 when the TMC sailed home with leads in 214 out of 294 assembly constituencies) In both scenarios the TMC gains Mamata should send a thank you card to the BJP Tamil Nadu: Almost identical with West Bengal The BJP obtained 55 per cent of the vote in 2014 compared to only 22 per cent in 2011 Some of the “BJP shift” voters might be Muslim and could gravitate to the DMK-Congress coalition or the AIADMK However the formation of the DMDK-MDMK alliance (an alliance the BJP wanted to be part of) is likely to cut into the DMK and BJP voteshare much more than the AIADMK thereby paving the way for an Amma victory — and possibly the first time in 40 years when Tamil Nadu votes back the incumbent party Kerala: This traditionally is the most difficult state for predictions and so it is on this occasion as well The primary reason is the fact that unlike most states Kerala operates according to a two-party system; small swings in voteshares cause a large swing in seat-shares The historical record of the swing in voteshare for one-time incumbency (that is the party won the previous election but lost the one before) is that the fresh incumbent is likely to lose about 15 per cent of voteshare In 2011 the LDF obtained 369 per cent against the UDF’s 406 per cent A 15 per cent swing will yield 384 per cent for the LDF and 391 per cent for the UDF A close fight as usual But note the increase in the BJP’s share between 2011 and 2014 — from 6 per cent to 105 per cent Which way will some of the BJP voters go — towards their sworn enemy the Congress or towards a less than equal enemy the communists If the Congress can tie up with the Left in West Bengal why can’t the BJP voter tilt towards the Left to ensure the defeat of the Congress in Kerala However it’s likely the anti-incumbency factor as well works against the Congress-led UDF and results in a victory for the LDF Assam: This is the one state where the BJP and its allies (AGP and BOPF) are given a chance by the pundits and opinion polls to win What’s at play is the large increase in the BJP+ voteshare from 339 per cent in 2011 to 429 per cent in 2014; the corresponding numbers for the BJP alone are 115 per cent to 369 per cent; and for the Congress — a 10 percentage point decline from 394 per cent to only 299 per cent If the Lok Sabha pattern repeats the BJP+ would have an easy win Opinion polls suggest that the BJP+ has a narrow 2 percentage point lead over the Congress a lead big enough to yield 65 seats to the BJP+ and only 36 to the INC There’s an important third party here — the Muslim-supported AIUDF (All India United Democratic Front) a party which obtained 15 per cent in 2014 compared to 126 per cent in 2011 If the AIUDF voteshare increases it’s likely to be at the expense of the Congress A loss for the BJP+ in Assam will be a surprise State elections are no doubt different from national elections and no one (including us) is expecting a repeat of May 2014 But we do think when the results are announced on May 19 the tilt will very likely be towards the BJP Not because they will win but because their voteshare will determine the magnitude of the Congress’s loss It’s the case of “enemy of my enemy is my very good friend” The table documents the results of the voteshares in the 2011 and 2014 elections an aggregate assessment of recent opinion polls and our own forecasts All of the opinion polls indicate a Congress loss (or its senior partner’s loss in Tamil Nadu and West Bengal) We reach a similar conclusion but with a larger loss for the INC+ If these predictions turn out to be true the political dialogue in India is likely to undergo a significant change The janata will start talking more about the beginning of the end of the Congress party with no respite in sight (this is the story line we had hinted at) However if the actual results are at significant variance with us (and the opinion polls) then May 19 would mark the beginning of the Congress’s revival Will the Congress kiss be the kiss of political death or like Snow White’s We think the former but the aam aurat will have the final say The writer is contributing

to those days when people were scared to step out of homes There were kidnappings ransom demands extortions and families were worried about their members’ return when they are out" Gandhi said

by Congress in the state Gandhi said "Because of peace in Assam 15 engineering colleges came up four lakh youths got employment its earnings increased from Rs 12000 crore to Rs 24000 crore roads were extended from 6000 km to 24000 km three medical colleges were set up making available three times more doctors to the state" "BJP creates violence in whichever state it forms government" he claimed BJP and RSS want to impose only one ideology across all states ignoring India’s plurality he said "We in Congress respect the people of Assam their culture ideologies religions ethnicity languages history But they (BJP-RSS) want to thrust only one ideology here. We believe there is a place for everyone to live here peacefully in brotherhood with each other" Gandhi said Hitting the campaign trail in Tezpur the Congress Vice President said that in recognition of Assam’s problems including flooding the erstwhile Congress-led UPA government had given thousands of crores of rupees and accorded the state Special Category Status "But when Narendra Modi became the Prime Minister he removed the special status to Assam He speaks about his ‘maan ki baat’ but never listens to the people’s ‘maan ki baat’ "You are the Prime Minister of India fulfil your poll promises and then come back to the people" Gandhi said Continuing his tirade against Modi Gandhi said "because he lies and fails to keep his poll promises the people of Bihar gave him a be-fitting reply telling him to do his work as prime minister in Delhi fulfil his poll promises and then talk to them This is to happen in Assam too" If Congress is re-elected in Assam the Congress leader said scholarship will be provided to downtrodden children in each district an agricultural bank will be set up for farmers rice will be given at Rs 2 to the poor free medical treatment will be provided to those earning below Rs 25 lakh annually and pucca houses will be built for tea garden workers India looking to sell up to 25 percent stake in four defence companies via IPO | Reuters Fwire Reuters Aug 04 2017 09:19:19 IST Comment 0 Tweet This story has not been edited by Firstpost staff and is generated by auto-feed Published Date: Aug 04 2017 09:19 AM | Updated Date: Aug 04 2017 09:19 AM Tags : 2013 12:35 am Related News Their informal summit will test whether US and China can cooperate without strategic trust The announcement that US President Barack Obama will have an informal summit with the new Chinese leader Xi Jinping in California caught even the most seasoned China watchers by surprise. saying if he was unable to handle an institution, Interestingly," DeRozan said he’s just trying to hone his skills.
