Who will lose in this election?

It is easy to accurately predict who all will lose in this election. A fractured mandate is bad for the country.  Here is my list of losers because of this election 09.

1. Environment

With the makeshift horse traded government trying to hold on to power on a day to day basis - the environment will never show up any where on the radar. Instead we will see environmentally unfriendly projects getting sanctioned at a furious pace - because even before the PIL can be submitted - the minister in charge might be replaced and a new government would have come. Make hay while the sun shines will be order of the day. Sorry Earth.

2. Economy

I feel sorry for the poor sods (including yours truly ) who have sunk their money in Stock Market . I am predicting market to fall to 8000 in the next few months. The parliment will be run by everything other than pragmatism. With the netas whims and fancies changing on a day to day basis - and along with it the fluctuating majority - and along with it the market will keep plunging. 

3. Aam Aadmi 

The new Government's life span is in weeks to months. They will not think even of a 1 year long project. So no new infrastructure projects will start, no improvements to healthcare or education will happen- everything that a Government is supposed to do - goes for a toss. 

Of course the politicians are not responsible for this mess - they would say it is the Aam Aadmi is to be blamed for having voted such a fractured mandate.

The world will turn dark tomorrow ( May 16th when counting will begin ). Brace up folks - and get ready for a rough ride in the coming few months. Probably my next posts will make fun of our pathetic situation and wont be this gloomy - so don't blacklist my blog yet :)


  1. You are wrong.....We got a stable government now.

  2. I wrote this post a day before the counting. I, like every exit poll and psephologist believed that it is going to be a hung assembly. And our Indian electorate throws yet one more surprise. I am very much relieved of this result as I was fearing the worst.

    Aam Aadmi did save the country :)

  3. Yes it is a surprise for me too, Inspit of price increase, terrorist attacks.... I think Indian people are getting matured, Except Tamilnadu people :-) who still votes for DMK OR ADMK
