Patna/New Delhi:The counting for the historic and crucial Bihar Assembly election will begin shortly and within the next few hours the scenario would be clear and people will get the answers for so many questions floating across the country.
Political observers and a large section of people are asking:
Will victory for the NDA in Bihar reinstate Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President Amit Shah’s reputation that he hestablished in 2014 May when his party swept to power at the Centre with a brute majority?
What the BJP will do in West Bengal and also what about its ambitions to spread the wings in the North East after a debacle in Bihar?
Will defeat in Bihar not lend crdibility to those who have been describing it as a party that rode to power at the Centre on the basis of “false promises”?
A defeat – will it not be a warning signal to BJP for the 2017 elections in Uttar Pradesh?
For the JDU-RJD “Mahagathbandhan (grand alliance) that has drawn heavily from the caste factor, a victory would be a game changer for Indian Politics as it would send the clear message that the Modi wave is now a thing of the past and that the Modi model of development has been rejected by the people. A defeat on the other end will bring down the curtain when it comes to Lalu Prasad Yadav and his kind of politics and also crush the Bihar chief Minister Nitish Kumar’s ambitions to pitch himself prominently in national politics keeping an eye on the 2019 elections.
