Battle of Bihar Assembly Election 2015 (Who will Win in Bihar?) (What Exit polls and opinion Polls Saying?)

Nitesh Kumar, Bihar Assembly Election, 2015
At present the biggest election battle which the whole nation waiting is Bihar Assembly Election 2015. BJP wants to take away the Bihar CM position from Nitish Kumar who was once a BJP allay. In politics, anything can change anytime, Bihar Assembly election 2015 provides a great example of it. BJP and JDU fought Bihar 2010 Assembly election together and won it with a landslide victory. However, this alliance lasted for 2 years only over the protest of Nitish Kumar for making Narendra Modi, BJP's prime ministerial candidate.

At present, Nitish Kumar is running his government with the support of RJD, once an arch rival party after Jitendra ram manjhi floated a new party. In the Bihar Assembly election 2015, we will see a tough battle between two political alliances of Congress-JDU-RJD and BJP-LJP-RLSP-HAM (Hindustan Awam Morcha).

There is a total of 243 Assembly seats in Bihar and any alliance or party needs to win at least 122 seats to make next government.  In the 2015 Bihar Assembly election, Bihar voters are confused because of changing political friendships. Last time, the parties which were fighting against each other are now on the same side.

Narendra Modi, Bihar Assembly Election
Here every political alliance and party is trying to win the votes of minorities and lower castes because of their decisive majority of many seats. BJP has added Jitendra Ram Manjhi to his alliance to attract the voters of the lower section. Both the alliance are making calculated moves to vow the voters so that they can vote for the party.

In the 2010 Bihar Assembly election, BJP-JDU alliance won 206 seats with BJP winning 91 and JDU 115 seats. RJD showed its worst performance with 22 seats, though it has a considerable vote share of 19%. If we go by the Loksabha election 2014 results, then BJP alliance was ahead in more than 170 seats. However, Assembly may show a different picture because many partners have changed.

The big difficulty for BJP is a move smoothly with the its regional partners who are demanding a good number of seats. These small political parties of BJP alliance like Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (RLSP) and the Hindustan Awam Morcha (HAM) will either help BJP or it may create problem for it.

Jatendra Ram ManjhiThe same is true for Nitish Kumar, who has joined hands with his arch rival Lalu Yadav. The big worrying for BJP may be huge vote share of JDU-RJD-Congress combined in the 2014 Loksabha election which was around 50% when combined. If the JDU alliance succeeded in retaining this vote share, then it near to impossible for the BJP to win in Bihar.

However, many things have changed since the 2014 Loksabha election and we are likely to see a shift in vote share and it is a real test for all political parties to attract a good vote share. In the past, a saw few option polls in Bihar and they are giving a mixed results. Some of them have given an edge to JDU-RJD-Congress alliance while others are giving the edge to BJP alliance.

However, one thing is very similar in every opinion poll that the margin of winning alliance, just differ by 20 to 30 seats only. This means that a winning alliance will win around 130 seats and losing alliance 110 seats.

Lalu Yadav, Bihar Assembly ElectionBJP is relying on the Karishma of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to work again in Bihar; therefore, it has not announced any CM candidate. These elections will also test the RJD because a defeat in this election will push RJD very down.

This means that the fight for Bihar is going to be very tough and a slight shift of a few percent of votes can make or break the fortunes of any political alliance. If I have to give my opinion, then JDU alliance has very narrow lead so far; though, it is very difficult to say anything because situations are changing daily.

Option poll Predictions for the Bihar Assembly Election 2015

JDU alliance   120-130
BJP alliance    115-125
Others              5-15

Around 15K deaths because of potholes in last five years

Some data are very shocking and unbelievable. One similar data is about around 15K deaths in India because of potholes. These numbers are so alarming that even the Supreme Court of India raised a question on this issue. It is bad for any country to have so bad roads that they start killing more numbers of people than the actual numbers of people killed by any kind of war in country. This clearly states that we don't need wars to kill people because our roads are already doing this job. The condition of Indian roads has always remained a matter of debate. Despite so many efforts, the condition of Indian roads is not good.

Even in big cities, it is very common to find potholes and bad roads then who cares about the small cities and villages. The main reason behind such problems is that there is no system to make concerned authorities accountable. The officials involved in road construction don't do their jobs properly and high corruption is another reason which fuels such probl…

Thoughts on Women's Day

Today, we are celebrating International women day to show our tribute to the contributions made by women in this world. In recent times, women around the world have seen a lot of improvement in their living standards, especially in countries like India and this improvement is significant. Therefore, this day is also celebrated in India with full respect to women, who have made significant contributions in business, politics, career, general life etc.

A lot of people in India celebrate this day by sending flowers, cards or SMS to their mothers, sisters, wives or other female friends. However, still, there is a lot more required to be done to provide more help to women of India because even today, millions of women in India are not able to use all of their basic rights; and are living under the influence of others. Second big issue which is required to be addressed is the thinking of a large number of people about women who still believe that women are either second-class citizens or a b…

Is it right to use Movies to score Politics? #AccidentalPrimeMinister

India is a country of controversies and we keep on seeing newer and newer controversies emerging daily. Some controversies die fast while others continue for years. The recent controversy is about the Anupam Kher's latest movie "Accidental Prime Minister" in which he is playing the role of formal Prime Minister of India Manmohan Singh. 

This controversy emerged with the release of the trailer of movie Accidental Prime Minister. The Congress party blames that this movie is made to spoil the image of Gandhi family while Anupam Kher claims that his movie is based on the book written by Baru Sanjaya whose role is played by Akshay Khanna in the movie. 

Mostly in India, we see politics on the single line that "I am right and you are wrong". The focus of all political parties is more on proving others wrong than proving themselves right. They want your votes not because they are right but because others are wrong. In such kind of politics, we hardly see right things pro…
