Humiliating fall of Congress titans in Karnataka

Humiliating fall of Congress titans in Karnataka

BJP's alliance partner, Asom Gana Parishad (AGP), who contested three seats failed to make any impact. However, Congress leader and party's Rajya Sabha MP B K Hariprasad lost to young Tejasvi Surya in Bangalore South constituency by a margin of over 3.31 lakh votes.

BJP President Amit Shah, who is credited with crafting the political strategy that helped the party retain its base in northern and western India but also advanced in the east, is tipped to be the home minister, a powerful post with control of security and intelligence services.

The claim of state BJP leaders that the party's increased Lok Sabha tally is reflective of its growth in the state is only partially true.

The BJP would grow in Telangana the way it did in West Bengal, he said.

In Assam, going against the calculations of most political observers, BJP ally Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) is giving a tough fight to Congress's Gaurav Gogoi in Kaliabor and Abdul Khaleque of Congress in Barpeta. In Uttar Pradesh, the BJP's vote share was 49.6%, and was possibly lifted beyond the halfway mark with two seats from the Apna Dal (Soneylal).

The Congress has scored a win in eight seats besides leading in one.

Bharatiya Janata Party's leading poll strategist from the Northeast and Assam finance minister Himanta Biswa Sarma had said his party will go ahead with the Citizenship Amendment Bill (CAB) again.

While some are even claiming Google's blow might be " fatal ", the rumors of Huawei's death have likely been grossly exaggerated. As for the chipset within the smartphone, the component plays an important role in ensuring smoothness of the operating system.

After winning a historic victory, the BJP is now preparing for the formation of the government.

The Section 151A of the Representation of the People Act, 1951 stipulates that a by-election has to be held within six months of a seat falling vacant in an Assembly or Lok Sabha. If the assembly poll voting pattern was to be repeated, the BJP was expected to lose 11 Lok Sabha seats and had an edge in 18 parliamentary segments.

He wished Modi health and success and the people of India prosperity.

The NDA won 351 seats out of a total of 542.

The question is not about winning 300 seats, but the huge margin through which the BJP candidates defeated their nearest rivals ... that is a huge, huge surprise.
This is a big boost for the party before the next assembly elections in the state scheduled for 2021. A wave in favour of the BJP aside, Congress insiders believe that Moily was a direct casualty of the JDS-Congress coalition.

AGP, which walked out of the Assam government opposing the Bill, finally made a decision to fight the Lok Sabha elections jointly with the BJP. In 2014, the BJD got 20 and the BJP just one.
