Media’s initial euphoria about Shiv Sena winning at expense of the BJP gets cut short

BMC elections votes were counted today and initial trends, though incomplete, suggested that Shiv Sena could win the elections with BJP finishing at the second place.

So the Moral of the story is: Never jump the gun.

And as they say, even a broken clock shows the right time twice a day and today was Rana Ayyub’s day:
