and one of the guests at the opening on Wednesday was Lall, since it adds an interesting touch to the song. The team’s? Some establishments are even offering discounts to voters to goad citizens out on a balmy day.In 2013 with high voter turnouts being recorded across the country where the poll has been conducted so far all eyes will be on Mumbai to see whether the citizens of the metropolis take the various bait that have been thrown at them Some of the city’s celebrities have already left for the sunny shores of Florida for an award function but other celebrities industrialists and regular citizens are expected to stand in queues and cast their vote Issues on the basis of which votes will be cast will range from the central government’s performance to caste and community factors Security will be high across the city with 322 polling stations across the city 98 in the city and 224 in the suburbs being declared ‘critical’ Over 20000 police personnel apart will monitor the electoral process and even ‘micro-observers’ from the Centre will be present at every booth to ensure polling takes place fairly A Mumbai citizen walks past a poster urging citizens to vote AFP Up for grabs in this election are six seats all of which are presently held by the Congress-Nationalist Congress Party alliance The Shiv Sena-BJP along with new ally Republican Party of India will be hoping to change those numbers and will be hoping to capitalise fully on massive anti-incumbency against the ruling alliance And then there’s the Aam Aadmi Party which hopes to spoil the best laid plans of both sides Here’s a breakdown of the seats that the parties will be in the fray for today: Mumbai South : Currently represented by Milind Deora from the Congress the lack of a strong candidate is expected to help him see the inside of the Lok Sabha for another term Up against him are former banker turned politician Meera Sanyal Shiv Sena’s Arvind Sawant and the MNS’s Bala Nandgaonkar The Shiv Sena and MNS candidate are expected to neutralise any real opposition to Deora who’s expected to sail through Unless of course Meera Sanyal plays the ultimate spoiler Mumbai North Central: Presently represented by Priya Dutt of the Congress she will be up against Poonam Mahajan of the BJP and Samajwadi Party’s Farhan Azmi Dutt is the favourite to retain the seat but a possible discord in the party may result in her having a closer race than she would like Mumbai North East: The seat is presently represented by the NCP’s Sanjay Dina Patil who biggest achievement in his term may be that he was ranked as the worst MP from the state in a study conducted by the Association of Democratic Reforms He won by the slimmest of margins in 2009 and BJP’s Kirit Somaiya who was at the losing end in that election will be hoping to turn the tables this time round The absence of a MNS candidate is also expected to aid Somaiya’s cause But then there’s social activist Medha Patkar who on a Aam Aadmi Party ticket could even give her party a seat in the Lok Sabha Mumbai North West: Congress’s present MP Gurudas Kamat will face off against Shiv Sena challenger Gajanan Kirtikar whose most notable contribution to this election may have been the discovery of a man who looks incredibly like Narendra Modi Kirtikar may have hoped to capitalise on the anti-incumbency and support for the Narendra Modi (the real one) but has to contend with the presence of MNS candidate Mahesh Manjrekar the filmmaker Manjrekar is largely expected to damage the Shiv Sena candidate’s chances and little else And just in case you thought this contest would be boring there’s also Rakhi Sawant who will presumably even vote dressed as her party’s symbol the green chilly Mumbai North: As Firstpost’s Kavitha Iyer pointed out if there’s a Modi wave in Mumbai it’s got to be in the western suburbs of Kandivli and Borivali These are Gujarati-dominated suburbs with residents having organic relationships with the home state of the BJP’s prime ministerial nominee As if that’s not enough sitting MP from the Congress Sanjay Nirupam is battling a strong anti-incumbency He won by around 5000 votes in the last election and facing popular MLA Gopal Shetty of the BJP Nirupam can expect a close contest this time round as well Mumbai South Central: Congress MP Eknath Gaikwad won convincingly in 2009 winning by over 75000 votes But the veteran politician faces strong anti-incumbency over being part of the UPA government and for failure to deliver on promises concerning Dharavi Rahul Shewale of the Shiv Sena is hoping to capitalise on this Shewale can hope to benefit from support from the RPI and could hope to corner a bulk of the Dalit votes in the constituency MNS’s Aditya Shirodkar is also in the fray but isn’t expected to trouble either of the other candidates greatly It’s cooking again the recipe for a non-Congress non-BJP Third Front On 5 February eleven regional parties decided to coordinate their efforts on the floor of Parliament Then on 10 February leaders of five of those parties JD(U) Chief Nitish Kumar CPI(M) General Secretary Prakash Karat CPI’s AB Bardhan and Forward Bloc’s Debabrata Biswas met for breakfast at the Delhi home of former ‘Third Front’ Prime Minister and JD(S) leader HD Deve Gowda They promise something more concrete to the nation after the final session of the 15th Lok Sabha ends on 21 February Prakash Karat PTI image Whatever that is will be a false promise There is no such thing like a “Third Front” or a non-BJP non-Congress front available to the voters of India in a Lok Sabha election In fact there never has been There is a difference between a government led by a Prime Minister who is not from the Congress or BJP and a government which has nothing to do with the Congress or BJP India has experimented with the former but never with the latter In 1977 when Morarji Desai became the first “Third Front” non-Congress (and indeed non-Jan Sangh) Prime Minister of India he did so in alliance with the Jan Sangh (BJP’s precursor) LK Advani and Atal Behari Vajpayee were important members of the Cabinet In 1979 when he was felled and replaced by Charan Singh another Third Fronter it was done with the support of the Congress Then in 1989 when VP Singh became Prime Minister of another Third Front (it was called the National Front) he was supported by not just the Left (the usual suspect in a Third Front) but by the BJP as well His government fell after 11 months in office when the BJP withdrew support The Third Front experiment continued with Chandrashekhar replacing VP Singh and the Congress replacing the BJP as the outside supporter Needless to say it did not last It didn’t take long for a Third Front to reemerge In 1996 what was left of VP Singh’s Janata Dal hoisted Karnatala Chief Minister HD Deve Gowda into the Prime Minister’s chair but the government an on the life support of 146 Congress MPs When then Congress President Sitaram Kesri tired of Gowda he replaced him with IK Gujral only to abandon him in 10 months’ time It isn’t surprising that voters have opted out of giving a Third Front another opportunity to rule not least because it has always been a front run at the mercy of either the Congress or BJP far from its rallying cry of being equidistant from both ‘national’ parties In reality it has always been a second front formed opportunistically to either stop the Congress or to prevent the BJP from forming a central government In 2014 Messers Nitish Karat and Co has no realistic chance of laying claim to form a government in Delhi without the backing of Congress or BJP As long as the Left is an integral part of the Front it is only reasonable to assume that the motley group will expect to be propped up by the ‘secular’ Congress After all the Left backed the Congress in 2004 But voters have wisened up to this If they want a Congress government they will elect one; why bother with a weak government that is effectively run by the Congress from behind That is why the Third Front is a non-starter There is no realistic chance of these eleven new found friends getting anywhere more than 100 Lok Sabha seats put together They may cobble together another 50 or 60 but no more After all Mamata cannot be on the same side as the Left Lalu can’t be on the same side as Nitish and Mayawati cannot be on the same side as Lalu The Third Front like its constituents is a reality only in the states where it is possible to form stable and lasting governments without the need for support either from Congress or BJP There is a reason why the Congress and BJP alone are labelled ‘national’ parties They have always been the powers that sat on the throne or ruled from behind There is no Third Front except the one that periodically cooks in the imagination of a few over-ambitious politicians New Delhi: BJP chief ministerial candidate Kiran Bedi on Tuesday tried to cash in on the popularity of Harsh Vardhan as she hit the campaign trail in east Delhi’s Krishna Nagar constituency from where the Union minister had been an MLA since 1993 Kiran Bedi said Dr Harsh Vardhan was like her younger brother Reuters "Dr Sahab called me his elder sister he is also like my younger brother I have known him for so long Krishna Nagar is a very pure constituency which is why I said that I will nurture this garden well I’m going to be here temporarily only as a caretaker "I hope Dr Sahab will be at rest as this caretaker is also very effective and hardworking and knows the work which needs to be done He’ll be my advisor if I have any problem I will go to him I’m here as a caretaker" she told a gathering in Krishna Nagar here The former IPS officer also said she had wanted Dr Harsh Vardhan to become the chief minister in the last elections saying that she hopes that this would’ve happened "I’m a well wisher of Dr Harsh Vardhan and also a fan There is no competition at all I’m here to devote myself to you" she said Bedi also said that city now wants administration and its people no longer want a government of "dhamkis" and suspensions Harsh Vardhan said his role in this election is going to be that of a BJP worker for a better future of the country On being asked if he wanted his wife or son to fight from the constituency he said "I think all this talk is totally rubbish and has no relevance at all" Bedi also showed her willingness to keep the education department and home guard with her if she becomes chief minister "As the chief minister I will keep the education department and the home guard with me No policemen will cheat me they’re all waiting for madam to come We’ll organise career melas for companies "We will soon be able to control the number of jobless in the city We will fulfill what the prime minister envisions for the country along with Make In India there will be Make in Delhi" she added Bedi said if BJP comes to power government dispensaries will not shut down after 2 pm "There are many private doctors homeopathic doctors as well ayurvedic doctors whom we’ll rope in "Every government officer would be on the road by 9 am to review the work of their department and they will give me a monthly report We will also set up a call centre to address the grievances of the public" she added Vardhan said Bedi was like an elder sister to him PTI New York: A US appeals court will hear next month the 1984 Sikh rights violation case filed by a rights group against the Congress party Representational image Reuters The court will hear the case on 2 December Sikhs for Justice (SFJ) said adding that its appeal is based on grounds that the victims’ claim against the Congress is not barred under US Supreme Court since plaintiffs in the case have been granted refugee status by California Federal Court for being victims of the 1984 violence Legal advisor to SFJ attorney Gurpatwant Singh Pannun said federal law grants "institutional standing" to human rights groups to seek "declaratory judgments" by US Courts SFJ is seeking judgment to declare November 1984 violence against the Sikh Community as "genocide" He said victims of the 1984 riots are pursuing their case in an international court after exhausting all judicial remedies in India and there has been denial of justice and impunity to those who orchestrated the attacks for the last 30 years The rights group plans to submit a ‘1984 Sikh Genocide’ report to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon on November 7 The case has been filed against the Congress party under Alien Torts Statute for genocide rape and extra judicial killings; and for aiding and abetting the crimes PTI Even though there is

polls got most of their predictions wrongthus proving how unscientific they are So the conclusion that these opinion polls influence voters seems a bit far fetched The very fact that the pollsters got it wrong proves thatno matter what their predictionsthe electorate has a mind of its own It only shows that the electorate is now mature and not swayed by such efforts Claiming otherwise is to give
