UPA romps home comfortably
The BJP should do some serious introspection. Can hindu-anything work in a caste based polity ? It can grow only by undermining caste as the staging unit.
The left is on its death bed. You do not make friendship with the Congress for five years and not expect to lose in a direct fight. In the entire five years they were in the media limelight, they never made it clear exactly how they were different from the Congress. The muslim vote in Bengal may never return due to the Sachar report.
The DMK pulls off a surprise victory. The more the AIADMK Is out of power, the more vote marshals will desert it. This is a vicious cycle already turned two spirals down. The party may not survive another couple of defeats.
Expect more social engineering based on caste, which is sure to dilute the BJP even further.
I hope Rahul is made the PM and not Manmohan Singh. However, it does not matter much this time though because the Congress will have almost complete control of the new government.
