Maharashtra Elections | All geared up for the Maharshtra Assembly elections!

Thursday, September 3rd, 2009

The Maharashtra State Assembly elections are to be held on the 13th of October this year with Haryana, Maharashtra and Arunachal Pradesh going to the polls on the day. So, in Maharashtra, we have to see if the Congress NCP combine will pull up a majority. The key areas will be Thane and Mumbai, from where the future of the parties will be decided.

The BJP is trying its level best to stay in the fray by raking up EVM and voting related issues. According to the BJP, the EVM results should be re-checked, which casts aspersions on the election process. So, does rigging really take place, or is it this just a failing party’s attempts at staying in the news?

Anyway, in Mumbai, the Shiv Sena BJP combine will prove to be quite a threat for the rest of the parties. Abhijeet Sawant, our local Maharashtrian singing lad has joined the Shiv Sena, stating his Maharashtrian origins as the reason for him to join the Shiv Sena.

The state is gearing up for elections in a big way. Many new parties have come up with cricketers like Vinod Kambli, MP Raju Shetty and MLC Kapil Patil forming a new party.

The Congress will face stiff competition from parties like the Samajwadi Party, the BJP Shiv Sena, RSS combine, the Bahujan Samaj Party, which will probably lead to the rise of the lower income group.

Mayawati has entered Maharashtra with most of the suburbs of Mumbai like Mulund, Kandivali etc hosting her party’s candidates. Just like a liberal party’s loss in Japan, India will also witness a renaissance of sorts, with lower, right winged parties emerging victorious.
