Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) is leaving no stone unturned to secure a massive mandate as from the voters both in Maharashtra and Haryana in the elections taking place there shortly. Both Congress and BJP, besides other smaller political groups, are in a keen contest with no exception on mud slinging against each other. BJP is all out to cash on Modi’s every day growing popularity and Congress working on their ‘High Command’ culture using Sonia Gandhi in a biggest possible measure. Rahul Gandhi is almost side lined for the present obviously for the simple reason that he was a flop during the last general elections. Modi is out to address as many rallies as possible in both the States and in Maharashtra alone he is scheduled to address as many as 20 meetings. Anti incumbency factor is a great tool for BJP in both Haryana and Maharashtra. Apparently Congress appears to have a limping foot on the surface. The party lacks any leader who could play a charismatic role in the field as against BJP who are jubilant on Modi’s triumphant visit to America securing huge investments for India and there lies their big strength. Their moral is on a high pitch. What has to be seen is whether Modi’s charisma works again like it did in the last general elections or Sonia Gandhi is able to still resuscitate some life to otherwise collapsing the Congress bogey.
