The really interesting change in trend is not that the Congress seems to be gaining but how much gains have been registered by ‘others’ over the last 2 days. Congress and ther party supporters have increased participation pushing up the levels for both Congress and others. What this seems to suggest (as we have seen in Karntaka) is that Congress supporters have come to terms with ticket allocation and now are once gaining in confidence about doing reasonably well in the election. It needs to be seen how long this sustains.
Madhya Pradesh election continue to flow in tremedous way and we all must enjoy this wonderful dance of democracy called elections.
