I see no reason why CongI and others disrupt IT policy.People in AP have said through voting that "We want water electricity and food first,Microsoft/Oracle later"

Well, how can they expect water and electricity if they wouldn�t capitalise on what they have � loads and loads of educated and willing to work young people? Its not like they have vast fertile and rich plains, rivers and suitable weather for farming, or gold or petroleum to dig out! It should be like, sell what you have and then buy what you need, than, give us what we need and then we will do what you want.
Well, it will be interesting to see how BJP is going to get enough seats to NDA this time around! I hate hung parliaments!

Ok,but Naidu govt was turning blind eye on farmer's suicides.60% of people in country depends on agriculture.You can't just neglect those.Now people are saying S.M.Krishna will be following Naidu!

Even with Congress with its kind of leadership in AP(or lack there of) the same problems for the farmers would havebeen there.
It has more to do with anti-incumbent mentality of Indian voter that has more to do with Babu's demise than anything else.

Ofcourse,I am not saying Cong(i) leaders would have done much different than Babu.Now a days you can rarely find a leader who knows and solves the issues well.But Babu created a such a show that IT means everything.People showed him his place and concluded that IT is not everything.

Pradeep,your dream of Vajpayee becoming PM again is fading away based on yesterday's AP result.Now 24 hours to go and we will be knowing whether we get hung parliament or not.Laloo can't become PM bcos of obvious reasons.Vajpayee is too tired now.Congress(I) won't take support from third parties for forming govt.They migh support from outside.In that case Mulayam Singh or Sharad Yadav or Sharad Pawar?

If I heard correctly then Congress(I) is taking support from CPI(M).
AW Dr. Singh is better than ABV, and much-much better than Murli Manohar or L.K. Advani etc.

They will. But there is also a high possibility that parties like DMK, MDMK and especially PMK changing sides and start supporting BJP, if conditions suit them. All they need is after all few chairs in the ministry!
They are traders

Comparing the figures,it looks like cost of 'others' will skyrocket!!During 1996,price of one Member of Parliament was 1 Crore(Rs 10000000)for supporting the Govt.Anil Ambani has already met Sonia Gandhi yesterday. .
I just heard Atal will take rest and submit his resignation to president.Almost clear now who will be the Prime Minister ,Italian born ..........
Pradeep?

Atal has already developed India. Congress can take over and ruin India for more years.

I am happy that BJP has swept in my home town, not even a single congress candidate won. Only one indepenedent.

I can�t believe these results!! I am happy to see many Sivsena candidates biting the dust, but then there are clueless bollywood starts winning against central ministers with expertise in their area of work!? The whole of India has gone TamilNadu way I guess.

Well, in its grand old tradition, no seats for BJP from Kerala (yet), and as usual, (since Right is the ruling party) Left is leading!

Sure, Sonia looks all set for the job, and in fact, at this stage, I would personally prefer her to be the leader. I think it would be really spineless if Congress (under pressure from their coalition) brings up someone else for the role (Rahul Gandhi for eg., ). She lead them through the election, and I guess she deserves to rule.

From BBC: Of the 20 seats, it went this way:

CPM 12
CPI 3
JD(S) 1
Ind. 1
JD(S)

I do not have all their names, but am sure Padmaja doesn't stand a chance when Congress did like, what 2:18?

Well, now thats another tradition - We have always managed to elect a party of exactly opposite alliance to the party forming Central Government.
