Opinion poll declares majority for NDA

An opinion poll by Hansa Research for NDTV claimed that BJP amassing around 34.5% vote share would win 226 seats with the Congress being reduced to 92 seats in the 16th Lok Sabha. The opinion poll conducted yesterday on April 14, 2014, night, projected that the National Democratic Alliance were on a path towards securing majority in the Lok Sabha with 275 seats out of the 543 in the on going elections. The survey declared that the United Progressive Alliance will presumably end up with merely 111 seats with the others bagging around 157 seats. It predicted that the Congress party will be able to garner only 25.6 per cent of the votes cast.

It has also predicted that there will be a BJP white wash in Uttar Pradesh, its best performance till date by winning probably 51 out of the 80 parliamentary seats on offer. While this would mean a gain of 10 seats for the BJP from its previous endeavor in 2009 the Congress may be languishing with only 5 seats meaning a loss of 16 seats in UP itself, the most important state in the Lok Sabha elections. Mulayam Singh Yadav’s Samajwadi party is tipped off to win around 14 seats in UP against their tally of 23 seats that it had acquired in 2009. The rest of the 10 seats will belong to Mayawati’s Bahujan Samaj party almost half the figure it had attained in the previous Lok Sabha elections held in 2009.

The BJP is also expected to sweep the polls in Rajasthan and predicted to notch up a tally of 21 from the state’s 25 parliamentary seats with the Congress capturing a lowly three. The only place where the Congress may perk up its tally is in Karnataka where it is expected to win 14 seats of the state’s 28 Lok Sabha seats an additional 8 from its 2009 tally. BJP will in all probability is set to lose around 7 seats from its net procured in 2009 in Karnataka to end up with 12 seats only. H D Deve Gowda’s Janata Dal (Secular) will bag only two seats compared to the three it had won in the last Lok Sabha contest.

The prediction for Odisha has sprang another surprise with BJP standing to gain 7 seats of the 21 from the state as it had drawn a blank in the 2009 general election. The Congress it seems will have to be satisfied with a solitary constituency this time from Odisha which again shows a decline from the six seats it had previously won five years ago. Congress, which had bagged 6 seats in Odisha in the last elections, will manage only a single seat this time, according to the opinion poll.

Hence with only about a month to go before the announcement of the actual results for the Lok Sabha to be announced it seems that the organized BJP have it all in the bag for them. Now it remains to be seen just how the new Modi government tackle the terribly twisted agendas of economic growth and wide spread corruption to take India to a new high in governance. It must a lesson for AAP’s Kejriwal to watch Modi perform at the centre while he failed too make most of a tremendous opportunity granted by the electorate of Delhi.
