Well if the numbers of the various exit polls are to hold / stay till the D- Day on # December 11, the results day for the five states which went to the polls then Prime Minister Narenda Modi and BJP president Amit Shah will have a lot to worry about.
The BJP is reportedly facing huge anti- incumbency in Rajasthan and might lose it to the resurgent Congress. There are worrying reports that Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje had been very unpopular much to the party’s anguish. The hard work by PCC chief Sachin Pilot and wily Ashok Gehlot might have pulled it off for the Congress.
In Madhya Pradesh, Shivrajsingh Chouhan is nowhere near the 200 plus target he had predicted. In- fact here to the Congress – which appears to be united under Kamal Nath, Jyotiraditya Scindia, Digvijaya Singh are putting up a very strong fight and the state is heading for tight finish.
In Chhattisgarh too Raman Singh is battling hard to return. His 65 seats target is out of reach as of now. The much talked about alliance between Ajit Jogi – Mayawati seems to have flopped on the ground.
In Telangana, K Chandrashekhar Rao’s early election game seems to have paid off with TRS set to return to power. Congress here is likely to made in- roads with a good show. BJP unlikely to fare well
In Mizoram, the ruling Congress and the MNF are in a very close race for finish and can the either way . The struggle in North- East continues.
If these projections or analysis holds on till end of the results on December 11, one thing is certain the BJP’s road to 2019 will be on a sticky wicket . The Congress resurgence on hindi belt augurs well for the party in its bid to return to power in 2019 Lok Sabha polls. Moreover, the BJP’s wish of Congress Mukt Bharat ( Rahul Gandhi has managed to arrest the slide it seems ) highly unlikely to happen if the numbers stay as the exit polls suggest stays on till # December 11 afternoon when the results will be out . Thus ending the suspense and indicating which way 2019 Lok Sabha Polls is heading.
