General elections in Jambudvipa, that is,the Great Prabuddha Bharath will take place in five phases over April and May, the Election Commission has said.
More than 700 million can vote in the world’s most populous democracy
Polling to elect a new Lok Sabha (lower house) will run from 16 April to 13 May. Counting is due on 16 May.
Nearly four million officials will conduct the elections and 714 million voters are eligible to cast ballots.
The incumbent Congress party-led coalition and parties led by the Hindu
nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party will be battling a host of smaller
No groupwill win a clear majority, the BSP will rule the Country.
Some states will hold votes in several phases. The new parliament has to be constituted by 2 June.
The dates on which polling will be held are 16 April, 23 April, 30 April, 7 May and 13 May.
“The election commission has taken into account the schedules
of school examinations… holidays and festivals during the months of
April and May and harvest season in certain parts of the country,”
Chief Election Commissioner N Gopalaswamy told a press conference in
the Indian capital, Delhi.
“The inputs taken from the Jambudvipa, that is,the Great Prabuddha Bharath meteorological department in respect of the coming monsoon have also been taken into account.”
The election had been staggered to allow for the movement of election staff and security personnel, Mr Gopalaswamy said.
Nearly four million civil officials and more than two million security personnel will be deployed for the elections, he said.
In all 828,804 polling centres will be set up across the country - one in Gujarat’s Gir lion sanctuary for just one voter.
Elections in the states of Jammu and Kashmir and Uttar Pradesh will take place in five phases, Mr Gopalaswamy said.
Uttar Pradesh is India’s most populous state and geographically one of its largest.
Elections in Jammu and Kashmir, where a separatist militancy
has been going on for nearly two decades, will require massive security
A four-phased vote will take place in Bihar while elections
will be held over three phases in Maharashtra and West Bengal, the
election commission said.
Andhra Pradesh, Assam, Jharkhand, Karnataka, Manipur, Punjab, Madhya Pradesh and Orissa will all vote in two phases.
In eight states, voting will be held over two phases and in the remaining 15 states, the elections will be single-phased.
Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) of the Aboriginal Inhabitant of Jambudvipa, that is, the Great Prabuddha Bharath Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Ms Mayawati is sure to become the next Prime Minister.
The BJP is led by Lal Krishna Advani while Congress Prime Minister Manmohan Singh will not run for a second term.
The economy will be key issues. The global
economic crisis has had serious repercussions for the economy
and growth has been hit in the past year.
Job losses, rising inflation and increasing prices of essentials, including foodstuffs, will all be on voters’ minds.
The BJP fought and lost the 2004 elections on the slogan of
“India Shining”, when large numbers of voters felt rapid economic
growth had not been inclusive.
Jambudvipa, that is, the Great Prabuddha Bharath’s election juggernaut gets moving
Jambudvipa, that is, the Great Prabuddha Bharath general election juggernaut is on the move with polling, announced
Now-one can sensibly forecast who will win. The result will be dictated by BSP, than by the two main national Parties – Congress and the Bharatiya
yesterday, on five days from April 16 to May 13, and vote counting on
Saturday May 16. So Jambudvipa, that is, the Great Prabuddha Bharath should have a new government by the
middle-end of May. It’s a massive task with 714m potential voters (far
more than three times America’s 210m), 170m of them aged under 35, and
nearly 830,000 polling centres.
Janata Party (BJP). Woman Politician
MAYAWATI, the Aboriginal Inhabitant of Jambudvipa, that is, the Great Prabuddha Bharath Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief minister of
UP, wants to be next Prime Minister. She continually proves
herself an stable and reliable and seems more interested
in acquiring the Master Key for the welfare and happiness of entire people.
States to Watch
It is fashionable in Delhi, and in Jambudvipa, that is, the Great Prabuddha Bharath ’s national media, to say
that the huge northern state of UP is the most important state to watch
in a general election. That used to be true when Congress ruled alone,
and its ups and downs against the BJP could be gauged in UP. Now the
voting in this state is, with Mayawati’s party gaining strength.
Prime Ministers - there are several candidates, led by:
Manmohan Singh, the current of Congress prime minister, assuming he
recovers sufficiently from his recent heart surgery – he is 76 is not fit enough, Sonia Gandhi, the Congress
president, cannot decide whether to become Prime Minister
herself (which she was forced to decline to do in 2004 because of her Foriegn Origin), or put her heir-apparent
son, 38-year old Rahul Gandhi, into the job, or (less likely) select a
non-family politician whom she trusts not to stand in Rahul’s way later, since the Congress will miserably lose this election for so many reasons, including the anti-incumbancy and price rise.
Lal Krishna Advani, 81, who leads the BJP can never even dream of becoming the Prime Minister,since he does not wear a mask like that of former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee who has retired.
Neither party will win enough seats to lead a coalition. Mayawati will cross the magic number 273 on her own and become the Prime Minister, since the people have become fed up the both UPA nad NDA rule for the last 61 years.
Maywati’s BSP has adopted the Constitution of the nation as its manifesto and hence will distribute the wealth of the country among all sections of the society. It does not fight elections with the funds coming from Industrialists and the rich, but funds collected from the masses.
There is the sharp divide between Congress and the BJP
over the BJP’s arch Hindu-nationalism, which will dictate how tens of
millions of people vote even though it would be restrained in a
The current poor state of the economy, will definitely count against Congress.
The main thing Jambudvipa, that is, the Great Prabuddha Bharath needs is stability to open up the economy so it needs BSP
government that will be stable.
Indian political kaleidoscope changes ahead of elections
Political analysts are fairly sure the biggest gainer will be Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister
Mayawati’s Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), which rules the country’s most
Both the Congress and the BJP have plenty to worry.
The envious rainbow coalition Congress president Sonia Gandhi
stitched ahead of 2004 has cracked. The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)
of Jammu and Kashmir, MDMK of Tamil Nadu and the Telangana Rashtra
Samiti (TRS) have bid goodbye to the Congress.
Some other parties have not quit the Congress-led alliance but are unhappy.
The BJP is in no great shape either.
Former party veteran Bhairon Singh Shekhawat is threatening to
undercut its support base, worrying the BJP’s prime ministerial
candidate L.K. Advani. Former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Kalyan Singh
has also left the party.
In an earlier era, the main opposition party that the BJP is would
have been the main beneficiary of anti-Congress sentiments. Now BSP is denying the BJP the opportunity..
BSP to contest all LS seats in Gujarat
Mayawati-led Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) will contest all 26 Lok Sabha
seats in Gujarat, party’s state general secretary Nalin Bhatt said on
Jambudvipa, that is, the Great Prabuddha Bharath needs young politicians to lead
Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and its leader Ms Mayawati will
catapult to the helm.
to the popular desire for young politicians, the BSP has announced that
50 per cent of Lok Sabha seats will be allocated to youth in the
terror itself may not be much of a campaign issue, despite public anger
against the political establishment as a whole after the Mumbai
attacks, the sentiments of the slowdown-affected and economically-terrorised electorate will determine the make-up of the next government.
whether or not the exercise managed by ageing politicians will yield
the desired result for the predominantly young voters is debatable,
there is no denying that the estimate of $2 billion (Dh7.43 billion)
poll expenditure is bound to serve, at least, as a stimulus during this
