Sponsored Links
  • Andhra Pradesh High Court permits MPTC (Mandal Parishad Territorial Constituency) and ZPTC (Zilla Parishad Territorial Constituency) to conduct elections from tomorrow onwards.
  • The advocate representing AP State Election Commission told High Court that the election process will begin from where it was halted last year in March 2020.
  • Justice U Durgaprasad Rao of Andhra Pradesh High Court, who had heard the petition filed by TDP, BJP and JSP for three days straight had reserved his order on Monday, 3rd of May, 2021.
  • The SEC wants to conduct the polling for the ZPTC and MPTC elections across the state of Andhra Pradesh on April 8. It requested the high court not to interfere in the election process at that stage.
  • However, the High Court has reserved its verdict after the SEC arguments. The court expected to deliver its judgement on April 6, Tuesday.
  • The Division Bench of the High Court ruled on the conduct of the Parishad elections. The division bench struck down the stay given by the single judge stating that the election could be held. However, it stated that the results should not be announced until further orders.
  • Justice U Durgaprasad Rao, who had heard the petition filed by TDP, BJP and JSP for three days straight had reserved his order on Monday.
  • A single-judge bench hearing the petitions filed by the BJP and TDP (Telugu Desham Party) on Tuesday seeking stay of the polls that struck down the BJP’s petition. However, the court hearing the petition filed by the TDP commented that the SEC had failed to implement the 4-week election code as per the Supreme Court guidelines.
  • The petitioners in their plea to Andhra Pradesh HC claimed that they were not consulted before the date for the announcement of the election.

  • It is important to note here that earlier, the newly appointed State Election chief Nilam Sawhney on April 1 had issued a notification announcing MPTCs and ZPTCs polls. The polling was scheduled for April 8 and the counting of votes was supposed to be held on April 10.
  • Opposition TDP, Janasena, BJP are objecting at SEC holding elections as per the old notification. They were demanding the cancellation of old notification and begin the election process afresh by issuing a new notification.
  • The TDP has already announced to boycott these elections in protest. But the SEC stood adamant in holding the event as per the old notification.
  • During the hearing, the counsel for the State Election Commission, CV Mohan Reddy, had argued that the Commission has the powers to modify or renotify the election process as per Rule 7 of Andhra Pradesh Panchayath Rah election conduct rules. He had also reminded the court about the Supreme Court’s orders to resume the election process, which was stalled in 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Meanwhile, advocate C Suman, who is representing the government had told the court that there was a need to complete polls at the earliest because the Andhra Pradesh state government was making plans to intensify the COVID-19 vaccination drive in light of an exponential surge in the Coronavirus cases in the state.

Kerala Election Results 2021:

Sponsored Links
  • Kerala assembly elections 2021 results were declared today on Mon day, 3rd of May, 2021 by the State Election Commission.
  • As per the announcement, Pinarayi Vijayan bagged victory leading left Democratic Front (LDF) party with 99 seats from Dharmadam constituency.
  • Pinarayi Vijayan is the incumbent chief minister of Kerala since 2016 and shall rejoin the post once again from this year, up to next consecutive five years of tenure after his LDF party won the 2021 assembly election.
  • The CPM-led alliance has managed to defy the decades-old tradition of Kerala voters alternating between the LDF and the Congress-led United Democratic Front (UDF) governments in the state.
  • While the LDF boasts of multiple popular party leaders and ministers, Pinarayi Vijayan is indisputably the face of the alliance, leading them in the assembly election from the front. Due to his outstanding handling capacity of multiple crises that hit the state consecutively, his image and persona proved how efficient he was to be called a good “crisis manager”.
  • These multiple crises were such as heavy flood disasters, delivery of food packets and other necessary essentials, relief camps, proper communication system during the calamities, evacuation of migrant workers during the 2020 pandemic lockdown and curfew amid the peak Covid-19, cyclone Ockhi in 2017, Nipah outbreak during 2018 and 2019, as well as advanced payment of welfare pensions to migrant laborers.
  • In the overall contest, the total number of seats secured by other leading major parties such as CPI (M) is 62, INC secured 21 seats, CPI-17, IUML-15, and KEC (M) securing only 5 seats.
  • The opposition United Democratic Front (UDF) won with 47 seats while Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) failed to at least open its account.
  • Kerala has become the only assembly in India that has no representative from the BJP.
  • Although today is a political celebration day for Kerala, but at the same it mourns in grief the sudden demise of the 87-year-old stalwart politician of Kerala, R. Balakrishna Pillai, who took his last breathe after coming to know that his film star son K.B. Ganesh Kumar won his fifth straight assembly elections from Pathanapuram, Kollam district of Kerala.

  • Trinamool spokesperson and Rajya Sabha MP Derek O’Brien described the Trinamool’s election performance as a “momentous” day for India and West Bengal, whereas that of the BJP’s campaigning as a filthy one.

2021 Tirupati Lok Sabha Seat By-Election Results:

Sponsored Links

The results of the by-election held for the Lok Sabha seat of Tirupati Parliamentary Constituency were declared on Sunday evening by the Election Commission of India (ECI). The notification of the by-election was issued in the third week of March and the last date for filing of nominations was 30th March. The by-election polls were conducted on 17th April without any hiccups. The results of the by-election have been released by the ECI after counting began on Sunday 2nd May at 8AM.

In a unsurprising result, YSR Congress Party’s (YSRCP) M. Gurumoorthy scored a stunning victory over closest rival Panabaka Lakshmi of Telugu Desam Party (TDP). The YSRCP candidate M. Gurumoorthy scored 6, 24, 575 votes and convincingly beat Panabaka Lakshmi of TDP who had the second highest number of votes 3, 53, 792 votes to her name. With this result, the YSRCP has secured victory a gawping margin of 2, 70,783 votes more than their nearest rival. The next closest rival for YSRCP after TDP was touted to be BJP who fielded K. Ratnaprabha for the by-elections. Ratnaprabha only secured 56, 842 votes for BJP. The vote share for the respective parties was as follows – YSRCP – 56.67%, TDP – 32.09%, BJP – 5.17%, INC – 0.87%, CPI (M) – 0.54%, NOTA – 1.41% and Others – 3.26%.

This victory margin of over 2.7 lakh votes more than the opposition is greater than their margin of victory for the same seat during the 2019 Lok Sabha Elections. In 2019, YSRCP won the Tirupati Lok Sabha seat by a margin of 2.28 lakh votes which is around 42,000 votes less than their victory margin in the 2021 by-elections. The vote counting process was repeated for 25 rounds with strict Covid-19 protocols in place at the counting stations. The counting stations were 10 halls of the SV University campus situated in Tirupati and 7 halls of the DKW College.

28 candidates contested for the much anticipated by-elections and the 7 assemblu segments that fall under the Tirupati Lok Sabha Parliamentary constituency witnessed a hotly contested battle between the ruling party YSRCP and oppositions of TDP & BJP. There was a voter turnout of nearly 64% on the day of polling. The Tirupati Lok Sabha by-elections were necessitated due to the demise of the then incumbent Lok Sabha seat holder from the YSRCP Balli Durgaprasad back in September of 2020.

The YSRCP had organised public meetings while campaigning for the LS seat by-elections, they had also planned a large public event with Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy scheduled to make an appearance. However, the party president and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy cancelled his visit due to rising Covid-19 cases in Tirupati. YSRCP candidate continued campaigning on the ground at grass-root level as he personally met and interacted with farmers, agriculture vendors, labourers and other workers. Meanwhile the opposition TDP had tried everything and left no stone turned during campaigning to try and garner the support of the people. TDP chief N. Chandrababu Naidu was also part of the campaigning bby Panabaka Lakshmi. N. Chandrababu Naidu had made sure he had conducted at least one public meeting in the 7 assembly segments of Tirupati parliamentary constituency to ask for the support of Tirupati’s citizens.

At the end of the day on 2nd May, all of TDP’s efforts seemed to have been laid to waste after they were crushed to a heavy defeat by YSRCP.

  • Now that the results are out, MK Stalin to become the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu for the first time, moving towards a majority of its own, expecting to bag 125 seats last night on Sunday.
  • The AIADMK under outgoing chief minister Edappadi K Palaniswami had to put up a decent fight bagging only 66 seats. Its allies PMK nad BJP however, were leading in five and four seats respectively.
  • For the first time, there was no towering presence of two stalwarts, DMK president M. Karunanidhi and AIADMK chief Jayalalithaa.
  • The two communist parties-CPI and CPI(M), secured two seats each allowing VCK (Viduthalai Chiruthaikal Katchi) to win atleast four seats.
  • Other alliances in the contest included MMK (Manithaneya Makkal Katchi), MDMK (Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam), PMK (Pattali Makkal Katchi), VCK (Vidhuthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi), TVK (Tamizhaga Vazhvurimai Katchi), BJP, AAP, as well as Congress.
  • Now that Congress was an early part of the DMK alliance, it performed outstandingly increasing its presence in the assembly to 17 from a mere eight seats during the previous election in 2016.
  • The DMK’s vote share was 37.7 percent with an impressive performance in regions including southern and northern regions while the AIADMK sliced away 33.4 percent.
  • The State’s Election Commission is yet to declare winners for all the 234 segments after which all the winning constituencies shall be updated soon.
  • Yesterday, for the DMK, it was a dream come true moment and in sync with its election song, “Stalin Thaan vararu”, which meant Stalin is going to become the chief minister.
  • DMK’s major ally the Congress was ahead in 16 seats, VCK in four constituencies and the two left parties in two segments each.
  • In 2006 assembly polls, AIADMK has lost the contest but anyhow managed to bag 61 seats. That following year, DMK won the polling with 96 seats, whereas Congress won 34.
  • But the game took a turning point in the 2016 with AIADMK winning 136 seats, DMK securing only 89 seats, and Congress winning only eight.
  • The prominent winners included the DMK chief MK Stalin himself from Kolathur and his son and party youth wing secretary, Udhayanidhi Stalin from Chepauk-Triplicane.
  • It is announced that MK Stalin will take oath for his Chief Minister post on 7th of May, 2021.
  • Makkal Needhi Maiam Chief Kamal Hassan loses to BJP women’s wing national president Vanathi Srinivasan in Coimbatore South constituency.
  • Kerala’s Left Democratic Front (LDF) won 99 out of the total 140 seats in the assembly, securing a second term in office.
  • Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Edappadi k Palaniswami resigns the post, giving a fresh space for DMK to serve the state of Tamil Nadu.
  • Amid allegations of dynasty politics, DMK strategists made a conscious effort to put Stalin at the centre of its campaign. Some accused him for being in too much hurry to win the post whereas his supporters on his victory consecutively doomed over those accusers and stated that it was his confidence and a good sense of urgency that made him win the contest and that “now the prince has become the king!”
  • People do agree that Stalin’s father Karunanidhi was a great orator, writer, and a national political colossus, but when it comes to Stalin, he loses the capability. They are the spoon-fed steps of his father, that enabled him to climb this wall of victory. It is however, very practical that Stalin didn’t take his inheritance for granted. He put all his wounds over to get this throne that serves the people of Tamil Nadu as well as the Indian civilization.

2021 Assam Assembly Election Results! Latest Results & List of Winners:

Sponsored Links

The BJP led alliance is set to form government again in the state of Assam as the Assam Assembly Election Results 2021 are being updated. The NDA alliance led by the ruling party Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) looks set to win comfortably over the Grand Alliance led by the Indian National Congress (INC) in Assam. The BJP led NDA has won 76 seats in the Assam Assembly Elections 2021, the INC led Grand Alliance has won in 49 seats with the remaining lone seat going to the non-allied party of Raijor Dal (RD).

The elections in Assam were held in 3 phases on 27th March, 1st April and 6th April. The polling turnout in Assam were 79.93%, 80.96% and 82.33% in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd phases respectively. The ruling party BJP contested 92 seats and its alliance Asom Gana Parishad fought 26 seats. On the Grand Alliance front, Congress fought for 94 seats and its ally AIUDF competed for victory in 14 seats.

The BJP led alliance with Asom Gana Parishad (AGP), the United People’s Party Liberal (UPPL) and the Gana Suraksha Party (GSP) – the allies of BJP mainly represent the Bodo and Sarania companies respectively. The Grand Alliance led by the Indian National Congress which was dubbed as “Mahajot” comprises of the All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF), Bodoland People’s Front (BDF), the Communist Party of India [Marxist] (CPI (M)), CPI (Marxist & Leninist) and Anchalik Gana Morcha (AGM). The NDA has had to deal with attacks from 2 fronts in the Assam elections, one challenge was posed by the INC led Grand Alliance and its minority supported allied parties of AIUDF and BDF. The other challenge for the NDA was from strong and newly formed regional parties of Assam Jatiya Parishad (AJP) and the Raijor Dal (RD) a party that was formed out of the protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) that swept Assam in 2019. Raijor Dal President Akhil Gogoi won the Sibasagar seat while being jailed.

The counting began at 8AM in the state of Assam at 331 counting halls spread throughout the state. Strict health protocols were followed during the counting process which took place during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic crisis in the country. A 3 tier security system was also arranged at all the counting halls to ensure maximum security and smooth functioning of the counting process. The results were declared slowly throughout the day for each seat and the final results declared late at night on 2nd May. The ruling party of BJP was looking to create history and it seems like it has succeeded in doing so by becoming the only non-Congress government to win consecutive terms in Assam.

In spite of strong resistance against the BJP for the implementation of CAA in Assam, the party managed to win on the power of benefit and development schemes while avoiding the CAA during campaigning. Also, there is no clarity on who will become the Chief Minister in Assam, while all major BJP players including current Chief Minister Sarbananda Soonwal who won after re-elections. BJP Assam Chief Ranjeet Das claimed the NDA will win over 83 seats in the state after the party had earlier claimed to secure victory in 100+ seats, the BJP led NDA has only won 76 seats in total so it remains to be seen who will be appointed CM of Assam but one fact that is know is that the next CM will be from BJP.

Local Body Polls in Telangana End without Any Drama:

Sponsored Links

The elections for Warangal, Khammam municipal corporations and five other local bodies in Telangana ended at 5pm on 30th April without any major hiccups. With the exception of few incidents of clashes between the ruling party TRS and opposition parties contesting elections, there were no other reports of any major incidents. The few incidents of clashes reported occurred in Greater Warangal & Khammam areas but were soon brought to an end as the police forces were quick to intervene and diffuse the situation.

The Telangana High Court had directed the State Election Commission (SEC) to follow Covid-19 protocols and implement strict safety measures at all the voting centres. An average voter turnout of 50% was reported from the areas where the polls were being conducted. The Telangana High Court had already admonished the SEC to refrain from holding public elections at a time when the number of positive cases in the state is on the rise. A division bench of Chief Justice Hima Kohli & Justice B Vijaysen Reddy questioned the necessity for the SEC to conduct elections at this point in time. CJ Kohli also warned the SEC that the elections will not only put the lives of the public at risk but also risks the health of the 7,700 government employees and nearly 2,600 security and police personnel required to conduct the elections.

Under the searing heat and soaring temperatures, voters queued up since the beginning of the voting since 7 AM on 30th April outside the election booths in Greater Warangal & Khammam Municipal Corporations and five municipalities of Siddipet, Jedcherla, Atchampet, Kothur & Nakrekal. At the same time polling was also held for by-elections of 4 wards in 4 other municipalities and one ward of Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation.

At the end of the day, the voter turnout was around 50% in Greater Warangal region, 58% in Khammam and 68% in Siddipet Municipal Ward. 11.6 lakh voters were registered for the municipal elections of which nearly 5.9 lakh were women. These 11.6 lakh voters had to exercise their responsibility to vote at the 1,539 polling stations that were setup. 1,300 candidates were contesting the elections of which nearly 480 were independent candidates. A total of over 9,800 polling personnel were deployed by the SEC to ensure smooth operation during the elections while maintaining and following the Covid-19 protocols in place.

C Parthasarathi, the State Election Commissioner monitored the polling process from Hyderabad and kept instructing his officers on the ground at the polling stations at regular intervals to ensure Covid-19 protocols were being adhered to. He also ordered SEC officials to arrange to & from polling stations for police personnel from reception centres to their respective destinations after they hand over election material while only having 50% percent occupancy in these transport modes.

The day’s polling action began at 7AM for all the urban local bodies (ULBs) where SEC officials ensured voters maintained social distancing and wore their masks at all times. The Aarogya Setu app was also used to keep a check while every polling booth had sanitizer disposal stands at the entrances, the polling booths were also sanitised regularly every few hours. Every election officer and police personnel was given a safety kit which consisted of a pair of gloves, a mask, sanitiser and face shield.

EXIT POLLS 2021 – West Bengal, Tamil Nadu, Assam, Kerala & Puducherry:

Sponsored Links

The state assembly elections for the states of West Bengal, Tamil Nadu, Assam and Kerala along with elections for the Union Territory of Puducherry were held beginning from March 27th this year and concluded with the end of the eighth phase of voting in West Bengal on April 29th. The counting is to be done soon and the results are expected to be announced on 2nd May 2021. Until the results come out, only speculative results in the form of exit polls will give an indication as to what results we can expect. Exit polls are not accurate by any means and should not be seen as actual results. Let’s have a look at what the exit polls indicate right now.

The scenario in each state is different, firstly, in West Bengal the Mamata Banerjee led Trinamool Congress (TMC) looks to have an edge of Narendra Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in what is turning out to be a closely contested battle for power with different exit polls showing either the BJP or TMC in the lead with no certainty of majority. Secondly, in Assam, BJP looks to sweep the elections over the Congress-AIUDF alliance by winning with clear majority. In Kerala meanwhile, all the exit polls have touted the ruling CPI (M) led left front to end the 40 year trend of voting the incumbent ruling party out of power which would mean a severe blow to the Congress led UDF at the hands of the CPI (M) led LDF.

Down south beside the state of Kerala, Tamil Nadu also had elections conducted in March/April 2021 and the exit polls for Tamil Nadu indicate a crushing victory for the DMK – Congress – Left alliance. Many exit polls are going far enough to daringly predict a complete victory of the alliance over AIADMK. AIADMK is fighting their first elections without their long-time leader late J Jayalalithaa and are on the verge of facing a setback. The DMK led alliance is also without its stalwart leader late M Karunanidhi, this time the alliance led by MK Stalin seeks to return to power in the state after a duration of 10 years.

All the exit polls have only one similarity, a setback for the Indian National Congress (INC) – most exit polls even predict Congress to be wiped out from the UT of Puducherry. The Congress-Left alliance is already relegated to being a minor player after the battle has become a two horse race between the TMC & BJP. Congress also remains a minor player in the DMK alliance in Tamil Nadu as majority of the seats being predicted as wins for DMK alone.

The BJP has received a major confidence high from the fact that after heaving only a measly 10% vote share in West Bengal in 2016 elections in the state, the exit polls now predict BJP getting more than 100 seats with some exit polls even predicting a BJP win. While the BJP may not win, the number of seats they win might be enough to prevent TMC from winning with absolute majority which will definitely unsettle Mamata Banerjee. The exit polls data has been varying from one exit poll to another. Exit poll data has been gathered from the exit polls of Republic-CNX, India News Jan ki Baat, India TV’s People’s Pulse, TimesNow C Voter, ABP News C Voter, News24’s Today’s Chanakya and India Ahead’s ETG Research.

The national ruling NDA’s main force BJP’s national media in-charge Anil Bhaluni said the exit polls are an indication of the party’s strong performances “under the leadership of Narendra Modi will regain power in Assam, is all set to form the government in West Bengal and Puducherry and will increase its support and voter base in Kerala and Tamil Nadu.”

The whole nation awaits with bated breath as the results will be announced on Sunday, all the while there is an ongoing medical crisis in the country due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Stay indoors and stay safe.
