Delhi Assembly poll results

Delhi Assembly

Poll-results for Delhi State Assembly giving the Aam Admi Party (AAP) a thumping majority and the Congress coming with the poorest zero confirms elimination of the Congress as a national political party, and the rise of Arvind Kejriwal aiming towards a probable opposition face for top post in governance of the country in case the AAP goes ahead by establishing its strong units in other States starting from UP because the people of UP are amongst the most beneficiaries of free medical facilities available in Delhi at the cost of money of Delhi taxpayers. Poll strategist Prashant Kishore has once again established his expertise in the AAP leading to historical victory and can be instrumental in the AAP aiming to replace the Congress as a national party.

The poll results should lead the BJP to think of much-required change in state leadership to hand over charge of Delhi to a local respectable face known for honesty even though he may have to sacrifice his present post of Union Cabinet minister. The BJP-ruled Central government should re-think its governance strategy. It should carry forward with reformative bills like on population control, poll reforms and uniform civil code first rather than prioritizing on bills that may create controversy. Economic policies should be completely overhauled to make it user-friendly and employment-generating. Voters can never digest the excuse of global recession because the party-mentor RSS always emphasizing the Swadeshi economic policy. Stress should be on reviving the ancient tradition of making people adapt to savings rather than on loans.
