Media asks people who might win in Karnataka, and the answers were rather unanimous

The vociferous dialogues are over, the history metaphors are back to their ages, the allegations and counter-allegations have stopped, the campaigns for Karnataka elections are finally over and its the D-day when people will go to the polling booths and vote for their choice, in large numbers, hopefully.

For the media, elections are a gala. They travel to different locations, get to taste a variety of cuisines, propose different, sometimes strange equations for the voting pattern and reach out to common people and delve in their minds for every last bit of electoral opinion.

Many such videos were released today by various media houses where they went around asking the people of Karnataka who they think should or would win Karnataka.

A 93-year-old lady is an inspiration for youngsters. She came to vote in a hope to bring some “good people” to power. She feels that the incumbent government hasn’t done much about the local governance issues that concern the people.

How does Rahul Gandhi fare as a Prime Ministerial candidate? The people are all in the working-age young group. The reactions for Rahul Gandhi’s Prime Ministerial ambitions ranged from – “No, never”, “Not at all”, “100 % NO”, “can’t take him seriously” to “he isn’t capable of handling that position”. Some people feel that there is the difference between the ‘calibre’ of Rahul Gandhi and Prime Minister Modi. Someone suggested that for Rahul Gandhi to get one’s vote he has to do at least two-thirds of the amount of work as Prime Minister Modi does.

And what do the passengers in the bus think? The support seems high in favour of BJP and going by the reactions while some people have retained their confidence in BJP, some seem to vote for change.

The results of the Karnataka elections being held today are set to be announced on 15th May 2018. Whether these statements and apparent ‘wave’ translate to vote, remains to be seen.
