    MP
    Impressive victory in MP shows that BJP could fight anti incumbancy the way Modi showed. MP is becoming another Gujarath for BJP. Same is the case for Chattisgarh.

    But Rajasthan is almost expected after Gujjar situation etc. But Delhi is a shame for BJP. Delhi is becoming Congress state now.

    The results of this election shows how divided we are. Probably because of assembly election. But this is sort of a trend for LS polls.

    Anyway this is a moral booster for congress which was goign down for several months.

    BJP, you have to work hard to make it on your own in LS polls. 5

    Nothing bad for BJP
    The results, except the Delhi, are good for BJP, I think.

    It is important to note that BJP retained 2 out of 3. Cong retained one out of one. It is wrong to say that Congress has gained much in Rajasthan. They should have perfomed much better, considering all the anti-Raje aspects.

    In one way, I think it is good that BJP did not put up a much impressive victory. So they won’t feel relaxed for the LS polls and opt to work hard, which ?s very much needed. 5
