Every TV/print Channel in India has now published its own poll results based on their 'scientific methods'.Should there be a constraint on publishing these kind of results as 2/3 of election across countrywide is still in queue?Many people are saying this may affect future election results.I think nobody should be allowed to publish the poll results until the whole election process is over.

I agree. Until all voting is complete, the election results of partial voting should not be declared. I wonder where the EC is on this.

There was all party meeting on the same subject. And all parties agreed to this kind of poll to be published before end of election.

Exciting story .Only the problem is,author has given minute details,but I could not find the name of single creature ,RAW official?There is no RAW web site.RAW officers are servants of Prime minister in power similar to CBI.Author has not given name of single official.
and if at all this is true,I will blame those secrative RAW servants who listened to Prime minister doing illegal work.This is the typical characteristic of Indian Civil servants,when they retire from service,they spread these types of canards intentionally to show how honest and helpless they were during their tenure.

Of course, Sonia is a patriot and Vajpayee a traitor

Let us all vote for patriotic Sonia and make her the PM.

Why label somebody with patriot or traitor?Both are VVIPs in our society,travel to many countries using diplomatic visas.So by definition niether of them is a traitor.When anyone of them will die,you will see their Samadhi near Mahatma Gandhi's,Am I right?

Damn, after all this, are we going to get another hung parliament? An unstable government and elections every year?
Oh well, now that we have gone electronic, may be we should install a �finger-print� based electronic voting machine in every school, office and at public places � and then we can call flash election in a week notice!

Yes,chances of hung parliament are more.If Congress(I) supports some Third Front,then expect next election before 2006.Congi leaders will give some foolish reasons to withdraw the support similar given by Rajiv Gandhi when Chandrashekhar was PM.If BJP supports some xyz front,assume there will be hundreds of yatras across India with possibility of riots.and then they will withdraw support when some Bajrang Dal or VHP leaders will get beaten up possibly by police in Janta Dal Government!!

Mumbai Stock market went down after hearing the news that its difficult for BJP to come again in power.Businessmen anyway were proBJP.They will try their 'best' for BJP to come to power.Hope they won't repeat the mistake as in 1996 in gauging horse trading.

Damn, I didn�t see that one coming! I hope they picks up the IT & infrastructure development where Chandra Babu Naidu left it and keeps up the momentum. It would be a shame if they didn�t!
