Is Congress preparing for early polls?

UPA’s decision to pass an ordinance on Food Security Bill has given rise to rumours that Congress is gearing up for early polls. 6 states (MP, Chhatisgarh, Rajasthan, Delhi, Mizoram and J&K) accounting for 79 Lok Sabha seats are slated to have assembly elections by year end.

With the Food Security Bill push, there is a possibility that Congress would go to national polls along with these states. This also does not leave more time for NaMo to do a campaigning throughout the country (only 4 months).

There is also a possibility that Congress goes to state polls with Food Security Bill, does well and with the momentum gained go for national polls in 2014. This will be a big boost for Congress as BJP was expected to do well in 4 out of these 6 states (pre Food Security announcement).  Only time will tell…

Friends / Folks what do you think?
