62% Voter turnout in Phase 1 polling

In the phase 1 elections that were held yesterday for 124 Loksabha (and the corresponding assembly seats in Andhra Pradesh and Orissa) the percentage turn out of voters was around 62%.

There were some incidents of violence in some Naxal strong hold areas.

Overall this time the percentage was slightly better than what it was in the 2004 elections for the same parliamentary constituencies (the difference may also be due to the delimitation of some of these loksabha seats)

Voters turn out in some big states:

Andhra Pradesh recorded 65% polling
Bihar 46% polling
Uttar Pradesh 49%
Kerala 64%
Maharashtra 54%

Election Commission has banned all forms of exit poll results and opinion polls by all kind of media. This is to ensure that the subsequent phases of election will not be influenced by the results of phase 1 elections.

Now the focus shifts on to the phase 2 of elections coming Thursday.

Praja Rajyam party leader Parakala Prabhakar quits PRP

In a set back to Chiranjeevi's political ambitions and that too just before the AP state assembly and general elections, party leader Parakala Prabhakar quit PRP with anger. According to him the party is functioning like a commercial company and is not sticking to the agenda for which the party is formed (bringing a change).

At the same time it is important to note that Parakala Prabhakar was not given the party ticket and according to PRP spokesperson - P Prabhakar left the party since he was not give the ticket and everything else is baseless. PRP admitted that he was a senior leader but his exit will not hamper the parties performance in the coming elections.

There are talks of other senior leaders also thinking on the same lines. But it will be important to note that all the political parties are going through this phase of pacifying ticket aspirants and also controlling the rebel candidates.

It is too early to guesstimate the political fall out of this step from the PRP leader.

4th Front in the making for the 15th Loksabha

Before NDA and UPA started calculating the loss because of a stronger third front, they both may receive another jolt with news of a 4th front in making in the India Political scenario. This 4th front will comprise of Laloo Yadav's RJD, Ram Vilas Paswan's LJP, Mulayam Singh's SP.

Samajwadi Parties top leader is trying to please other political parties about the 4th front and apparently in this regard he already had discussions with Prajarajyam Parties Chiranjeevi. He and Sanjay Dutt did meet Chiranjeevi in the actor's Hyderabad residence.

If things work out between these people then the 4th front will be strong enough to give a tough fight for the other 3 fronts and in fact the 4th front has hold in big states like UP, Bihar and AP (if PRP joins).

It would have been a good meeting between the two big stars - Sanjay Dutt (Munna Bhai MBBS) and Chiranjeevi (Shankar Dada MBBS - Telugu version).

In the event of a hung parliament, the 4th will not support NDA and they may forcefully support the UPA government.

Google India Election Center for Loksabha 2009 coverage

Lok Sabha Election Alliances between Political parties

Here are the political parties alliance's that are intact as of today for the coming 2009 General Elections. I am sure some of the equations here will change as we come closer to the election days and the post elections permutations and combinations.

National Democratic Alliance NDA -- BJP and its Allies

* Bharatiya Janata Party - BJP - strong in North and central India; weak in south (other than Karnataka) and east India

* Shiv Sena - Maharashtra - presence only in Maharashtra, may contest seats from other states too (like Delhi and UP)

* Janata Dal (United) JD(U) - Strong in Bihar and some presence in Karnataka; currently ruling party in Bihar

* Shiromani Akali Dal SAD - Only in Punjab

* Indian National Lok Dal INLD - Only in Haryana

* Asom Gana Parishad AGP - Only in Assam

* Rashtriya Lok Dal RLD - Presence in Western Uttar Pradesh

* Nagaland People's Front - As the name suggests this party has influence only in Nagaland

Congress and its Allies - (UPA)

* Indian National Congress - INC, Congress I - Pan India presence, can contest any Loksabha seat in India

* Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam - DMK - presence in Tamilnadu and Puducherry - currently ruling party; has many seats in the current 14th Loksabha, so managed to get some good ministries within the UPA government.

* Nationalist Congress Party - NCP - Led by Sharad Pawar - strong in Maharashtra - currently the leadership is maintaining that the party is still with UPA, but because of the Prime Minister ambitions of Sharad Pawar, this party can switch its alliance to other coalitions.

* Jharkhand Mukti Morcha - JMM - within Jharkhand - often comes to the rescue of Congress Party whenever there is a no-confidence motion.

* All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen - AIMIM - they can only win one seat - from Hyderabad - may contest few more in AP but traditionally they are the winners from Hyderabad Parliamentary Constituency

* Republican Party of India (Athvale) - RPI (A) - presence in Maharashtra

* Sikkim Democratic Front SDF - Presence in Sikkim

* Indian Union Muslim League - IUML - Only small Presence

* Trinamool Congress - Small but main opposition in West Bengal - Led by Mamata Banerjee - need to see how many seats she can win for the alliance.

* May be PMK too

Third Front

* Biju Janata Dal - BJD - Strong in Orissa - till recently was with NDA

* Communist Party of India - CPI - Did support Congress for most part of the 14th Lok Sabha Tenure - strong in Kerala,Bengal, UP, Bihar, AP

* Communist Party of India (Marxist) - CPM - Same as above - very strong in West Bengal and Kerala

* Revolutionary Socialist Party - RSP - Strong in West Bengal

* All India Forward Bloc - Same as above

* Telugu Desam Party - TDP - Strong in AP - with 42 seats in stake from the state, this party can pull a surprise and can give some hope to the third front - strong contender for the regional assembly elections also. Nara Chandrababu Naidu looking forward to be the Chief Minister of the State once again

* Telangana Rastra Samithi - TRS - fighting for a seperate Telangana state within Andhra Pradesh - did manage to win 5 seats in the 14th Loksabha - were with Congress then. The party feels that they got cheated by Congress so did a complete 360 degree u-turn and are now with the TDP

* AIADMK - Led by Jayalalitha - Strong in Tamilnadu - drew a blank in the 14th Loksabha - traditionally TN voters vote alternately to DMK and AIADMK in each election - so this time chances are big for this strong lady to manage some seats in TN.

* Janta Dal (Secular) - JD(S) - Strong in Karnataka - led by former Prime Minister Deve Gowda

* Haryana Janahit Party - Haryana Regional Party

Other undecided parties who can play a big role in the General Elections

* Rashtriya Janata Dal - RJD - very strong in Bihar - were with UPA till date - might change the equation in the last minute depending who they will support - third front or UPA

* Samajwadi Party - SP - Strong in UP - Same as above - strong in UP; can give a tight contest for any party in UP

* Prajarajyam Party - new party from AP - led by Actor Chiranjeevi - may win few seats

* Bahujan Samaj Party - ruling party from UP - strong in Uttar Pradesh, but has a pan India presence; emerging party - the leader Mayawati has the prime ministerial aspirations.

Do post your opinions on these alliances - and also if I missed any party here.

BJP Manifesto for 2009

Bharatiya Janata Party has come up with the manifesto for the 2009 general elections, they have kept all the different vote banks in the mind and did announce a lot of lucrative points in the parties agenda.

One thing that is attractive is Income tax exemption upto 3 Lakh for men and 3.5 Lakh for women. Also there will not be any Fringe Benefit Tax (FBT), these and there are few more related to Income tax in the BJP Manifesto.

Here are the highlights of the parties manifesto - for more information visit www.bjp.org - also are the comments to each point in the manifesto

1) 35 kg of rice/wheat per month for BPL (Below Poverty Line) families at Rs. 2 per kg - is this realistic?

2) No Income tax on salaries up to Rs. 3.5 lakh per annum (up to Rs. 3 lakh for men and up to Rs. 3.5 lakh for women) - this will bring cheers to the salaried class/IT people.

3) No fringe benefit tax - IT companies will welcome this.

4) All Farm Loans (Agriculture Loans) will be waived - Congress party just did that last year.

5) Agriculture loans for farmers at 4% - farmers are expecting this.

6) Home Loans up to Rs. 10 lakhs will become cheaper - SBI does give the loans at lesser rate, this may improve the reality situation.

7) Armed Forces, Paramilitary forces exempted from tax. - they deserve it, but the question remains for non-field officers

8) Separate Pay Commission for Armed Forces. - welcome

9) No tax on pension of senior citizens. - good move, pensioners will cheer

10) 1.2 crore jobs will be created in IT Sector. - need to know what will they do to create these many jobs
