  • Description

    MORE THAN 70 PER CENT OF THE NEW DELHI ELECTORATE WENT TO THE POLLS YESTERDAY (SUNDAY) ON THE FIFTH DAY OF THE WEEK-LONG INDIAN GENERAL ELECTIONS. SO FAR, MORE THAN HALF THE 250 MILLION PEOPLE ELIGIBLE TO VOTE HAVE DONE SO.

    A PICTURE OF THE NEW CENTRAL PARLIAMENT AND STATE ASSEMBLIES SHOULD BECOME CLEAR IN THE NEXT FEW DAYS BUT THE RULING CONGRESS PARTY IS THOUGHT TO BE ASSURED OF A CONTINUED MAJORITY IN THE CENTRAL PARLIAMENT AND THE CHIEF INTEREST CENTRES ON THE SIZE OF ITS VICTORY. IN DELHI, THE CONGRESS PARTY'S MAIN OPPONENT IS THE NATIONALIST JAN SANGH PARTY, WHICH DRAWS ITS STRENGTH FROM HINDU TRADITIONALISM. A NUMBER OF DISTURBANCES HAVE BEEN REPORTED THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY, INCLUDING A SHOOTING INCIDENT AT SURAJGARHA, IN THE NORTH-EASTERN STATE OF BIHAR, WHEN A CROWD SET FIRE TO A POLLING BOOTH. BUT IN GENERAL, THE SITUATION IS NO WORSE THAN IN PREVIOUS YEARS.
