The most amazing item in entire universe is the grey matter of Indian politician. The moment an individual joins this special class his entire genotype and phenotype get complete metamorphosis and acquires excellent character to exploit people for his or her personal gains only.
All the political parties are training their guns to go solo and get the maximum seats in the UP assembly polls. BSP was hoping for a turn around and BJP made it big after the recent developmental agenda in its future programmes in the SP ruled state. Dynasty politics was carrying on in UP and we expected a turmoil in its ranks sometime last year. Somehow it passed all the tests and did come cropper when the SP patriarch suspended the Chief Minister and his associates. Thus, we were witnessing a whimsical situation with allegations and counter allegations between the two factions. After all the anxious moments, now in a u-turn Mulayam takes back both Akhilesh and Ramgopal after seeing huge fan following for his son in the supremacy for power. Even though it appears that the Netaji scripted a drama for his son to gain maximum support before the elections. It indicates that Akhilesh is the clear winner of the turf war but both BJP and BSP will have better prospects in the present situation.
Power politics continue to haunt Tamil Nadu ever since the death of Dr. J. Jayalalithaa in December last year. The power struggle touched its murky end as both Panneerselvam and Sasikala claiming majority support. Sasikala could not survive the court verdict and put under bars in the disproportionate asset case against her. O. Panneerselvam tried all his luck but failed in the end game. DMK is lurking large for assuming power in case of a collapse and may find O. Panneerselvam as its ally to make things move in their way in the end.
Elections have taken place in Goa and Punjab and UP elections are underway in a phased manner. The results will be declared on 11th March and we can finalise the final position if coalition politics continue to take the top role. In recent times there were upsets and Tamil Nadu results in the year 2016 was one such example. Political parties cried about demonetisation during fag end of the last year but in the year 2017 election fund flow is complete and the parties enjoy maximum leeway to spend on huge amount for their propaganda.
