Elections are due in early 2014. UPA government has been in power for two consecutive terms and will seek a re-election. NDA is sniffing an opportunity because of the various scams during UPA regime and high / persistent inflation. Regional satraps are also trying to roll out a Third Front.
While BJP (largest party in NDA) has declared Narendra Modi (NaMo) as its PM candidate; Congress (largest party in UPA) is being unofficially led by Rahul Gandhi (RaGa / Baba), member of Gandhi scion. Powerful state politicians like Mulayam, Maya, Nitish, Mamta, Jaya also have prime ministerial ambitions.
The 2014 elections are expected to be nail biting with a clash of personalities (NaMo vs Baba). Its important for all of us to get a stable government voted to power. An unstable government will impact India’s image, economic prospects and credit rating which will have far reaching implications.
So it’s our duty to go out and vote, vote for the right candidate and party which will carry on good governance for the next 5 years.
Watch out this space for information on key political parties, their prospects and electoral dynamics in each state as a run up to the elections in 2014 (unless they happen earlier).
