This has been proven once again in the Karnataka Polls. BJP had demonstrated a lot of in-fighting and misrule in the State. Corruption, Illegal Mining, Peer Fighting - the party was highlighted in the media for all the wrong reasons.
So, it is quite natural that the people demonstrate their anger where they can and the results have spoken today.
Another election where this performance theory was proven right is the Gujarat Polls. The voters voted Narendra Modi back to power in response to all the positive environment that was created in response to his development based administration.
Once again a demonstration that performance matters.
Next - Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh and Delhi are in queue. These states are supposed to go to polls before 2013 ends.
Here is how I perceive the political scenario.
I believe that in Delhi, the Congress government has been in the news more for the wrong reasons than the right.
Sheila Dixit must combat the gloomy corruption-ridden perception of the Congress-led UPA government in the Center and the insensitive image of the government in the state.
The biggest factor being the way issue of security of women has been handled. To top it, Arvind Kejriwal's Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has been constantly nagging it for its insensitive price rise of electricity and water.
Sheila Dixit will be leading the Congress government to polls for the 4th time. It remains to be seen whether she stills retains public trust.
Madhya Pradesh (MP)Shivraj Singh Chauhan has not been much in the news for the wrong reasons.
I feel that even he will be leading his party to polls on a development-based campaign. If selected by his party, he will be leading his party in the state elections for the 2nd time.
ChhattisgarhDr. Raman Singh to has managed to keep his team of politicians away from the negative media. He has a development model to display.
- The creation of new districts.
- Naya Raipur.
- Free Pilgrimage.
- Many-fold increase in the use of Information Technology.
