GUWAHATI: Kalpurush Purnango Panjika has predicted a mixed year for the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) at the Centre, but not without a rider. It has also dropped a broad hint that the Congress may see change in its leadership at the national level.
Kalpurush Purnango Panjika was released in Guwahati on Monday. Speaking on what the stars predict for the Assamese year ahead, astrologer Pulin Sarma said: “The number of seats of the NDA will fall in the coming general elections. The arithmetic, however, will be enough to form the government. Since some smaller parties will be roped in while stitching the alliance, there’ll be troubles from smaller groups. The possibility of holding mid-term poll can’t also be ruled out.”
On the would-be fate of the Opposition Congress, Sarma said: “the party may face change in its leadership.”
On the overall situation in the country, the astrologer said: “There’ll be unrest due to insurgency by Maoists, war threat from Pakistan and China. Sporadic firing along the border with Pakistan is set to make people pass sleepless nights.”
On the State scene, Sarma predicted rise in abductions, blasts, fratricidal clashes, atrocities, smuggling and drug peddling, students’ agitations etc. On Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal’s star movement, the astrologer said: “He may find foes in his close friends who may tarnish the image of his Cabinet before the public.” The astrologer also predicted the floating of new political parties in the State, including one in the Barak Valley. On AIUDF president Badruddin Ajmal, the Panjika predicts that he may either tilt towards the Congress or the BJP for alliance.
