Maharashtra Assembly elections Oct 2009 - news and updates

Lets collect election related news and updates here.

Here is my first update, albeit with a little favoritism towards someone I simply adore

Quote:


Priyanka Chopra finds it tough to vote
By: Agencies Date: 2009-10-13 Place: Mumbai

Forget the aam junta, even actor Priyanka Chopra had a tough time finding her name on the voter list on Tuesday when she went in to cast her vote at a booth in Versova.

According to onlookers, elections officials had kept Piggy Chops waiting for nearly 45 minutes before she was allowed to cast her vote. "They couldn't find her name on the list, though they finally did after a long search and let her vote," said an onlooker.

Later Chopra tweeted about her experience though with no complaints. She said in a tweet, "Me and my brother!!! We just voted!! Exercise ur right!!"

Meanwhile, film star John Abraham, lyricist Javed Akhtar and his actress wife Shabana Azmi were among the early voters from the Bollywood fraternity who exercised their franchise for the Assembly elections.

John voted in Bandra, while Akhtar and Shabana cast their votes in Juhu in suburban Mumbai.


Stressing the importance of vote as an instrument of change, John said infrastructure in Mumbai needed an overhaul.

Akhtar said each and every citizen should be thankful to the constitution of India for providing them the important fundamental right of choosing one's government. "Not many countries give this right to its citizens. We have it and must make full use of it," he said.

Shabana, also a social activist of eminence, said, "It is very important to vote in an Assembly election because we can bring about the change in our own area."

Villain of yesteryear Prem Chopra, actor Rahul Bose and Nagma also cast their votes. Nagma was a hopeful for Congress ticket from Malad which did not materialise.

Lyricist Gulzar, who voted in Bandra west, said that the "Marathi" issue has been created for political milege.

"The Marathi issue has been raised for political mileage. Mumbai's concerns are issues faced by the common man. Mumbaikars are special because they vote with all enthusiasm," he said.

It's advantage Congress, indicate exit polls
October 13, 2009 22:49 IST
Exit polls by two television channels on Tuesady projected that Maharashtra's ruling Congress-NCP alliance will emerge victorious in the Assembly elections and one of them predicted Congress victory in Haryana.

IBN Lokmat-CNN-IBN exit poll gave Congress-NCP combine between 135 and 145 seats in the 288-member Maharashtra Assembly with Congress surging ahead with 75-85 seats and its alliance partner NCP winning between 55 and 65.

The Shiv Sena [ Images ] is projected to win between 55 and 65 seats and BJP emerging victorious in 45-55 seats, it said.

Raj Thackeray's [ Images ] Maharashtra Navnirman Sena is seen by the exit poll as winning between eight and 12 constituencies while others and Independents 25-35 seats.

Star News predicted Congress victory in 89 seats and NCP in 48. With 137 seats, it put the ruling alliance within sniffing distance of 145 seats required for a simple majority.

The same exit poll showed Shiv Sena getting 62 seats and its ally BJP 51 seats. It gave MNS 12, Republican Party of India-led alliance five and others 21 seats.

Star News exit poll projected a Congress win in Haryana with the party winning 57 seats in the 90-member Assembly.

The INLD is shown winning 18 seats, Haryana Janhit Congress (nine), BSP (three), BJP (one) and Others (three)

Re: Maharashtra Assembly elections Oct 2009 - news and updates

I know the results. Here is what I wrote on the other topic -

Quote:
I too wish that Congress should sit on the other side of the aisle for the next 5 years, but I admire the acumen of Congress stalwarts like Sharad Pawar (offcourse he is now in NCP but once a Congressi always a Congressi) who has played a perfect game this time - the MNS.

Earlier Sharad Pawar thought that getting Chaggan Bhujbal from Sena would do the trick but it did not work. Pawar is so exeperienced and far sighted that he did not lose heart. He then ensured that he got Narayan Rane from Sena over. This did cause some political turmoil in Konkan area vis-a-vis Sena. But Rane also turned out to be a damp squib.

So Pawar saheb kept working the same formula and this time he hit the mother lode - Raj Thackrey!

And the rest, as they say, WILL be history when MNS once more causes many electoral upsets all throughout Maharashtra or at the very least in Mumbai and Thane; thus sealing the deal for Congress NCP combine to once more ascend to the throne! Jai Ho! Jai Hind

Congressi tricks work only inside the country as India have been uter Diplomatic failure tlll 1991. Believe me Pakistan was given more value than India in International Circles.

It was only after PVN took over things started changing slowly.I remember PVN govt trying to prove hard Pakis as a terrorist state. offcourse US ignored but at its own peril.

PVN has skills to Open releations with Israel and use Iran against Pakistan in OIC Conference on Kashmir.

Exclamation Re: Maharashtra Assembly elections Oct 2009 - news and updates

Many go the NO-VOTE route! Now these same idiots (in Greek idiot means a person who does not vote) will bitch and moan when the government elected in these elections screws them!

Quote:

PHOTO: PROTEST VOTE: Members of NGO Kranti Sanstha campaign for no-vote option.

More Mumbaikars vote for no-vote
By: Sanjeev Devasia Date: 2009-10-15 Place: Mumbai

This Assembly elections threw up a surprise when it came to the option of no-vote or protest vote.

While approximately 850 people in Maharashtra had chosen the no-vote option in the Lok Sabha elections earlier this year, social organisations campaigning for the no-vote option said that the number was much larger this election.

AGNI member James John, who participated in the campaign and cast a no-vote said, "The exact number of no-votes is not available as of now, but we observed that a large number opted for it."

Kalpesh Vora from the NGO Kranti Sanstha said, "When we ran a campaign for 100 per cent voting, we realised that people don't want to vote for anybody.

So we urged them to go for no-vote rather than waste their vote. The problem is that it is not anonymous."

Viny Sebastian, a college lecturer, said, "I exercised this option, as I want only credible candidates to contest elections."

What's no-vote?

The None Of The Above (NOTA) option, commonly known as no-vote or protest vote, can be exercised under section 49 (O) of the conduct of election rules.

Under this section, the polling officials will give the voter a slip on which the voter can sign stating that he does not wish to vote for any of the candidates.

The no-vote numbers are included when the voter turnout is calculated.

My predictions will come true. Its Congress + NCP once more.

Quote:
Intel report: Sena-BJP will not cross 100 seats
Nikhil S Dixit / DNAFriday, October 16, 2009 2:48 IST

Mumbai: Intelligence Bureau (IB) has predicted that the Shiv Sena-BJP combine will barely touch the 100-seat mark in the just-concluded elections to the Maharashtra assembly, thereby ruling out any chance of a saffron alliance government.

The bureau has predicted that the Congress and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) would return to power, even though it will require the support of independents, rebels and the Third Front to prop them up for a stable dispensation. The Congress-NCP combine will bag 137 seats, the bureau has soothsayed along the lines predicted by various exit polls.

But the element of surprise is the massive decline it predicts for the BJP in the state. According to IB estimates, the BJP will not be able to cross 35 to 40 seats which is a huge decline from its previous tally of 56 seats which they got in the 2004 assembly elections. The Shiv Sena, rebuilding itself under the leadership of executive president Uddhav Thackeray, will win in 55 and 60 seats, according to the bureau estimates.

It also means that the Cong-NCP combine will be eyeing the rebels who, according to the reports, are expected to get 25 seats, or the independents who are likely to get anywhere between 12-14 seats. The Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) is likely to bag eight to 10 seats, suggests the report.

The results of the state assembly elections which went to the polls on October 13 will be declared on October 22. The IB and other intelligence agencies conduct their own survey based on the ground-level reports of the police and other cadres.

The report indicates that that Congress will emerge as a single largest party winning 77 seats and its alliance partner NCP 58-60 seats. The rebels, the report says, will hold the key to the formation of next government winning 25 seats. However, the Third Front, a conglomeration of 20 parties, is likely to make no impact and is expected to bag just two seats.

The bureau analysis gives just eight to 10 seats to the Raj Thackeray-led MNS. The independents will win 12 to 14 seats, says the report.

Re: Maharashtra Assembly elections Oct 2009 - news and updates

If after so much bad performance by Cong-NCP Government people are again selecting them then that means they are happy with Congress and they should stop giving Lame Duck excuses and abusing and accusing Government.

There is no excuse for people of Maharashtra to give after selecting Congress as there was always a strong opposition in form of Shivsena-BJP which has given a good government in 1994-1999.

What is funny about Indian people is that they select Congress to rule and then they cribb how unhappy they are with it.

Re: Maharashtra Assembly elections Oct 2009 - news and updates

If Congress wins heavily in Mumbai then it also means that the so called grievances of Marathi people are fake and those things do not matter.

Congress has openly made a Kripa Shankar Singh as Mumbai Congress Chief who benefitted the most from this Bhaiya-Marathi tension. People like Kripa Shankar Singh are the main cause of growing tension between migrant labourers and Marathi people.

Migrant Labourers do not import leaders with them. E.g in A.P my leader will be Chandra Babu Naidu or Kishan reddy if BJP grows but I won't import a leader from U.P .

If Marathis of Mumbai are still voting for Congress then either they are real stupid people or the so called concerns or grievances are fake.
