UP, Goa hung, Uttarakhand saffron

January 29 2017

A major survey and opinion poll was conducted in Uttar Pradesh by an agency just before the Congress-Samajwadi Party alliance was welded, and results are sure to shock many leaders. The survey had a sample size of 91,122 and was conducted across the state. The poll result says that SP (Akhilesh faction) will wrest 156 seats out of the 403 seats in the state assembly. The Bharatiya Janata Party comes next with 124 seats. Maya’s ‘maya’ (magic) will come a cropper, and her Bahujan Samaj Party will manage only 67 seats. A combination of other smaller parties will bag 34 seats. Next comes Akhilesh’s father Mulayam’s faction of SP, with 12 seats, and the Congress with an abashing eight seats. The magic figure in UP is 203 seats for any party to come to power on its own. Now, we leave it to the reader to speculate on the scintillating outcome.
The same agency’s survey in Uttarakhand – with a sample size of 14,244 shows the lotus shining bright. Of ther 70 seats there, BJP is slated to bag a cool 46 and romp into power in Dehradun. Harish Rawat-led Congress will wriggle out only 18 seats. Other parties will get around six seats. The same agency’s survey in Goa (sample size: 8,922) shows BJP and Congress almost neck to neck, with 14 and 12 seats respectively in the 70-seater. The Aam Aadmi Party is likely to open its inning in the tourism state with nine seats and the others will remain confined within five seats. And in this hung situation, the AAP and Congress can warm the cockles of each others’ hearts and run a coalition government.
