The high voter turnout in the Assembly election in crucial States seems to have sent out a clear message to the Congress that the common man is dissatisfied with the UPA’s governance (Dec. 5). The UPA should see the writing on the wall and realise that it is largely to blame for its own plight. Mis-governance, unbridled corruption and growing policy paralysis are what might have made voters look for other options.
While there is much debate on opinion/exit polls and their “results,” it is clear this time that the Congress is in the deep end of the pool. If trends are to be believed, whether it is Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh or Delhi, bad times seem to be in store for the UPA.
