I had predicted BJP's loss in bye elections
If Delhi elections were held immediately after Modi government was formed, BJP would have won hands down. I can not imagine what prevented them from going to election then. Now there is widespread dissappointment with Modi government. Results is Uttarakhand bye elections showed this. My feeling is that BJP will lose heavily in the bye elections in Bihar & elsewhere. Also they will loose all assembly election later this year.
Reasons for this are: 1) Failure to control inflation. 2) Steep fare hikes in railways. 3) Utter nonsense being spoken by some of their leaders and sangh pariwar. This is totally un-necessary. 4) People do not see any difference between this govt. and MMS govt. in Pak and China policy. Daily border violations have become routine affair. 5) Rape and murder cases are increaing day by day and thr govt. is watching silently. 6) They made tall promises of "Acche din" and can not cope up with the expectations of the people.

I believe, the government is committed to a drastic change for better and started with top-down approach unlike populist measures like offering Rice for Rs.2/- , free water, free TV etc.
Country development from all dimensions is the key. If you look at the pro-development policy changes made at the central level and concrete efforts made in attracting investments which ultimately benefit the common citizen to large extent. But, it takes some time to realize the benefits at the ground level.
State assembly elections do not really affect the growth trajectory of India! Indeed, nobody can stop it now!! more
they are least bother about the progress of the country, they are very much interested in their progress. more
