Coincidences haunt AAP & Congress ahead of Delhi polls; BJP outmanoeuvres again

By IndianMandarins- 07 Feb 2020


One may call it a mere coincidence that just a day before Delhi Assembly goes to polls certain issues have captured media optics that might dampen the hope of favourites in the hustings -- the AAP. The Congress might even get humiliated for second consecutive time in row bringing fortunes for the BJP in Delhi.

However, some other issues like PM’s speech in both the houses of Parliament and speech to celebrate pact with Bodo in Assam is an astute political plan by the party leadership.

Hearing on Shaheen Bagh in the Supreme Court is scheduled for February 7, 2020 and arrest of OSD to AAP Minister Manish Sisodia for accepting Rs 2 lakh as bribe are just a coincidence. But not other developments. Everyone knows that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s speech on February 6, 2020 in Lok Sabha captured the media attention on the last day of election campaign. It seems that the PM addressed four rallies in Delhi two from Parliament.

Further, its not just a coincidence, rather an example of sharp poll management that PM Modi is scheduled to address a public meeting in Assam’s Kokrajhar district to celebrate peace deals with Bodo which will certainly earn big dividend in garnering NE voters in Delhi.

This is to recall how PM visited and spent time in a Kedarnath cave after 2019 Lok Sabha elections, so they know how to remain in the public eye irrespective of media houses liking or not liking it. However, a latest satta bazar survey gives BJP 41 seats in Delhi but this could be an strategy for them to earn more bucks with AAP actually having edge of saffron outfit.
