India Under Modi in 2014 - 2015

India Under Modi in 2014 – 2015

I have to frequently write about all the election victories of Bharatiya Janata Party led by Narendra Modi because national media, print and electronic both, sometimes ignore the results of the small and remote states and union territories.

Even if they write about the victories of BJP in bigger states, they berate BJP and put misleading headlines. Recent local body elections in MAHARASHTRA of KDMC , Kalyan – Dombivli Municipal Corporation and KMC , Kolhapur Municipal Corporation are the best examples of biased media reporting.

BJP contested the KDMC elections alone and got 48 seats [ 42 + 6 Independents ] . It had only 9 seats in 2010. It is a 5 fold gain. But according to media, Congress is on the way to revival and Shiv Sena edged the BJP. Shiv Sena also claimed that we are the “BAAP” in Maharashtra politics. Shiv Sena is up 21 and BJP is up 39 from the 2010 tally. Shiv Sena has got only 4 more seats compared to BJP. Now who is the “BAAP”? Congress got 4 seats and is down 11 seats from 2010. How could KDMC election be called a revival? BJP is the biggest gainer but according to media it is not important.

In Kolhapur also BJP’s gain is 8 times more. It contested elections with a local outfit Tararani Aghadi and not with Shiv Sena. BJP got 4 in 2010. In 2015 it got 32 along with Tararani Aghadi. Shiv Sena got a paltry 4 seats, up 1 from 2010 but it claims to the “BAAP” of Maharashtra politics. Congress is down 4 and NCP is down 14 from their 2010 tally. But for media it is Congress’s revival and its a wake up call for BJP.

Here is the seat tally of KDMC 2015 & KMC 2015 Polls :

 

Kalyan-Dombivali Municipal Corporation ( KDMC ) Elections

================================================

TOTAL SEATS : 122 / Half Way Mark : 62

Shiv Sena : 52 / In 2010 : 31 [ + 21 ]

Baratiya Janata Party : 48 / In 2010 : 9 [ + 39 ]

Maharashtra Navnirman Sena : 9 / In 2010 : 27 [ – 18 ]

Congress : 4 / In 2010 : 15 [ – 11 ]

NCP : 2 / In 2010 : 14 [ – 12 ]

All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen : 1

Bahujan Samajwadi Party : 1

Independents : 5 / In 2010 : 13 [ – 8 ]

 

Kolhapur Municipal Corporation ( KMC ) Elections

BJP + Tararani Aghadi : 32 / In 2010 : 4 [ + 28 ]

Congress : 27 / In 2010 : 31 [ – 4 ]

NCP : 15 / In 2010 : 29 [ – 14 ]

Shiv Sena : 4 / In 2010 : 3 [ + 1 ]

Independents : 3 / In 2010 : 10 [ – 7 ]

 

59 Semi Urban Local Bodies / Nagar Panchayat Elections

================================================

BJP : 15 local bodies

Congress : 14 local bodies

NCP : 13 local bodies

Shiv Sena : 6 local bodies.

 

Nagar Panchayat Elections

============================

The BJP came 1st, the Congress emerged 2nd, the NCP stood a close third, the Shiv Sena a distant fourth, while the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena was virtually erased in the results of elections to 59 local bodies which were announced here on Monday, November 02, 2015. Even BSP and CPM are individually ahead of MNS. And combined strength of local parties and independents are almost close to Shiv Sena. BJP is 1st and got more than double seats compared to Shiv Sena. Can Shiv Sena still thinks that it is “BAAP” in Maharashtra politics?

Bharatiya Janata Party : 254 Seats

Congress : 233 Seats

Nationalist Congress Party : 196 Seats

Shiv Sena : 123 Seats

Maharashtra Navnirman Sena : 2 Seats

Bahujan Samaj Party : 7 Seats

CPI-M : 3 seats

Local Parties : 46

Independents : 56 Seats

BJP scored big in the Local Body Election 2015. It hardly matters even if media ignores it. While I am about to post this blog news is coming that Shiv Sena and BJP are joining hands in KDMC and they are set to rule KDMC jointly. It is heartening. Here I am listing all the elections held since the Lok Sabha victory of Narendra Modi. ———————————————————————

Maharashtra Municipal Elections 2012 : Congress’ Rout ; Saffron Juggernaut


MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           FEBRUARY 24 , 2012           02.40 A.M.

Municipal and Local Body elections 2012 in Mumbai and rest of Maharashtra just got over and now process of installing the mayors and other office bearers are underway .  These elections gave some very startling and surprising results this time .

It was initially thought by left – liberal intellectuals / journalists and slowly it became general perception that this time the saffron front is facing rout . It was widely believed that in the ensuing municipal corporation elections in Mumbai the ruling front ; the Shiv Sena and Bharatiya Janata Party , is playing on sticky wicket . BMC [ Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation ] is the richest corporation of India . Its annual budget is bigger than the budget of some of the state assemblies of India . So these elections are considered prestigious and this time it was keenly watched .

Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation

In Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation , the ruling Front of Shiv Sena and Bharatiya Janta Party was in power for unbelievable 3 consecutive terms . Therefore the Congress and NCP [ Nationalist Congress Party ] came to conclusion that incumbency factor will harm the ruling front and invariably brighten the prospect of opposition front . It was also felt that MNS [ Maharashtra Navanirman Sena ] will eat into Saffron Front votes and thus going to deprive them of victory . But unseen hands of destiny had few shocker for the Congress and NCP this time also .

Shiv Sena patriarch Shri Bala Saheb Thackeray and acting president Shri Uddhav Thackeray , along with Mumbai BJP President Shri Raj Purohit and some other state level BJP leaders , devised some new strategies to thwart the freshly hatched game plan of the Congress and NCP of Sharad Pawar . Their ” KARUN DAKHWALE ” campaign was brilliant . They roped in RPI [ Republican Party of India ] headed by Shri Ram Das Athwale , in the front . So the joint strength of Shiv Sena , Bharatiya Janta Party and Republican Party of India [ SS , BJP , RPI ] fought elections unitedly and comfortably trounced the Congress and NCP front .

When results were declared , it became apparent that SS , BJP , RPI have got the maximum number of seats in Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation . Though they fell short of 7 seats , still they won the BMC fort . Congress , NCP alliance came a distant second with 65 seats and MNS [ Maharashtra Navanirman Sena ] , perceived to be king – maker , was third with 28 seats in its kitty .

Out of 10 Municipal Corporations of Maharashtra , BJP and SS have won 5 . These are ; Mumbai , Thane , Ulhasnagar , Nagpur and Akola . NCP of Sharad Pawar is the clear winner in Pimpri – Chinchwad . NCP can capture Pune , Solapur and Amarawati also with the help of Congress . MNS has won maximum number of seats in Nashik . But here are some more shocker .

BJP has won more number of seats compared to Shiv Sena  in Pune , Solapur , Nagpur and Akola , BJP has outnumbered Congress also in Nagpur and Ulhasnagar and has equal number of seats in Akola . BJP has outnumbered NCP also in Nagpur , Mumbai , Solapur and Akola . In BMC BJP has won 31 seats compared to 28 in 2007 . BJP tally has improved everywhere .

Sharad Pawar , known as Maratha warrior , Maratha strongman in Marathi news papers , have bitten dust . Other so – called NCP stalwarts and strong men like Dy. Chief Minister Ajit Pawar , R. R. Patil and Chhagan Bhujbal , both former Dy. Chief Ministers , have eggs on their faces . Supriya Sule has simply vanished from the scene .

It’s sheer luck that because of assembly elections in 5 states , Rahul Gandhi or Sonia Gandhi can not visit Maharashtra . So they have some face – saving excuses . But Congress Chief Minister Prithvi Raj Chavan , ex Shiv Sainik and former Chief Minister Narayan Rane and Mumbai Congress Chief Kripa Shankar Singh have nothing to say . So they have gone into shell . They are incommunicado and blame game has started .

In 2007 BMC elections Congress and NCP had no alliance and they fought separately . So according to some left – liberal journalists , SS and BJP won because of the division of secular votes . But in 2012 , Congress and NCP fought the elections as alliance partners and still they lost . SS and BJP have won convincingly . Now left – liberal journos have to eat crow . They have nothing to say .

Shri Nitin Gadkari and Shri Bala Saheb Thackeray can take pride that they have snatched victory from the opponents and that too against all odds . It is satisfying fact that MNS [ Maharashtra Navanirman Sena ] instead of eating into saffron votes , ate Congress , NCP votes and dealt severe blow to their nefarious designs .

Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation elections along with 9 other civic body elections of 2012 are eye opener in real sense . It heralds saffron juggernaut and decimation of pseudo – secular forces.
