Fate of BJP in Meghalaya Assembly Elections 2018

Fate of BJP in Meghalaya Assembly Elections 2018

Polling for Meghalaya Asse,bly was done on February 27, 2018. The results of these elections were announced on 3 March 2018.

Before coming to results and further interpretation, let’s have a look at what the vedic astrologer Anirudh Kumar Mishra predicted on 12th February 2018 on his Twitter handle.

However, the results proved otherwise and BJP could manage to win only 2 seats out of 59 seats. The screenshot of the results is produced below from Wikipedia.

Now if we consider the prediction, the results seem to contradict it because Congress emerged as the single largest party in these elections while BJP could manage to win only a couple of seats. But what transpired subsequently puts substantial life in the prediction.

After emerging as the single largest party in Meghalaya, Congress sent in its two heavyweight leaders to negotiate for alliance so that it could form a government in Meghalaya but they failed in their efforts and BJP roped an alliance with National People’s Party (NPP), and NPP President Conrad Sangama submitted a letter of support from 34 MLAs to the Governor. Read the news here.

So even after after emerging as the single largest party in the state, Congress failed to form government and BJP despite getting only 2 seats stitched an alliance and became a part of the government under Conrad Sangama who took swore in as Chief Minister on 6th March. Thus the prediction came true in the sense that BJP did end up being a part in the government.

Who will win Tripura Assembly Elections of 2018?

Tripura, a North Eastern state of India remained one of the two states which was ruled by the Left. In the assembly elections of 2013, BJP fought at 50 seats in which its candidates lost their deposits on 49 seats, and the seat where a candidate managed to save his deposit was also lost by BJP. It could manage a vote share of only 1.5%. But 5 years later in 2018, BJP lead a strong campaign under the dynamic leadership of Modi and gave Manik Sarkar lead government a thought to worry about.

Tripura went to polls for its 59 assembly seats on February 18, 2018 with results planned for 3 March 2018. On 16 February 2018, the astrologer Anirudh Kumar Mishra made prediction through a tweet that BJP would win the assembly elections of Tripura.

Now as this blog post is being written, the counting of votes is in progress and with the trends and results announced so far, the above prediction has come true with BJP rooting out the Communist rule in Tripura with a two-third majority.

Some minutes back, Anirudh Mishra quoted the above tweet and said that the prediction by him proved to be correct.

Thus, this is another of his many predictions which public saw coming true today.

Who will win in Karnataka assembly elections of 2018?

Who will win in Karnataka assembly elections of 2018?

Karnataka is one of the fewest states which are presently ruled by Congress, and it is scheduled to go into polls in 2018. While BJP is trying to recover its lost forte, Congress would be toiling hard to save this state. The first prediction of Anirudh Kumar Mishra regarding Karnataka assembly elections came in October 2017 when he predicted that Congress government will have to loose Karnataka, and he even tagged the Twitter handle of Rahul Gandhi in his tweet.

Later on, he has posted multiple predictions, all in line with the above predictions stating that Congress will end up losing Karnataka, and BJP would form its government in one more state.

Anirudh Kumar Mishra made another prediction in December 2017 that BJP will form its government in Karnataka with the help of an alliance.

This with less than a year remaining for Karnataka Assembly elections which would take place in 2018, we would soon be seeing not only the outcome of the election but also the validity of this prediction.

EDIT (14.04.2018)

In another series of tweets at this link made on April 8, Mishra explicitly said that BJP might remain short of simple majority mark and will require support of independent candidates. A screenshot of these tweets is produced below:

He also said in another tweet that there will be BJP lead government in Karnataka and “it may” require support of 5+ members.
