delhi election, india election
Three sides going for big clash on December 4 assembly elections in Delhi. The ruling Congress, the opposition BJP and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). The triangular fight makes Delhi the most interesting polls fight among all the poll elections happened in the recent years.
The Congress party: Sheila Dikshit is Congress's promising candidate and it won't be easy to defeat her by any one. We will go one by one with the Congress first. The government of Sheila Dikshit in Delhi is perhaps the only Congress government in the country which has survived on on good terms and high note on infrastructure development.
She is the only veteran leader and chief minister of Delhi who has a reputation as an administrator, which has helped her to continue in power for 15 years now. An normal citizen of Delhi, there is very little reason for a normal citizen to compare her with the present central government and
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh with the effective government of Dikshit in Delhi.
If someone thinks that The overall corruption charges against the Congress and the dim crowd at Rahul Gandhi's rallies in Delhi will invariably lead to the Congress's defeat in Delhi, then perhaps he must be wrong. The congress in the hands of Sheila hand looks safe from inside.
If the BJP is enthusiastic about its popular chief minister Narendra Modi, then the Congress is as well more proud about Dikshit's credentials as the CM.
In Delhi, the Congress party has a strong poll face in the 75-year-old leader.
BJP: The BJP looks little messed up, and it will difficult to hit back. The saffron party has has a serious contender with clean image in form of Harsh Vardhan. Who promises to alter the prospect of Delhi. The BJP is entirely confident of narendra modi in this poll and hope this poll gives fruit full result.
There was no headache ever for Dikshit to continue with her stint in power until Arvind Kejriwal emerged a couple of years ago.
Is The party is banking on Narendra Modi's popularity too much for the Delhi polls? Only time will answer. Earlier this year in the Karnataka polls. Modi can created a wave in favour of his party but can the BJP improve on its stagnant vote-share in Delhi this time (its vote share in the 2003 assembly poll was 35.2%, in 2008 assembly poll was 36.3% and in the 2009 Lok Sabha poll was again 35.2%) without addressing issues at the local organizational level? Moreover, in the 2008 assembly election, there were at least 30 seats where the BJP's loss margin was in and around 10 per cent.
This time, the presence of Arvind(AAP) has made it all the more tough for the party. The BJP, running by the Modi factor, is ingnoring the Congress leadership saying it is afraid of matching Modi's mega rallies in Delhi. But is it equally concerned about the party's internal harmony in Delhi? Its choice and timing on the chief ministerial candidate could also be a worry.
AAP: Lots and lots of promises?
The party so far has seen a fairy tale run but only till the time of election. The AAP will certainly make history if it even comes close to power within just a year of formation. Most of the common people are hoping for a AAP victory from a sense of passion .
Thus, irrespective of women's safety concern in Delhi or the rising power tariff, the alternative on offer before the electorate is not exactly in a sound health. December 8 will be a very interesting day for the people of Delhi. It's a fair battle with a slight edge in favour of Sheila, if not the Congress.
