UPA back into power

Finally, the election results are out. After months and months of coalition drama from the likes of left, Mulayam SinghYadav, Laloo Prasad Yadav, what a relief now... at least now we can hope for a better political scenario as Congress has bagged enough seats that now it can work on its own and will not have to rely on pressure politics. Lets hope that Manmohan Singh delivers this time by reviving the economy as well as terrorism policy. He is not under pressure from left at this time to implement his economic reforms and he should not be under pressure from Amar Singh (hopefully!!!) to fight against terrorism and he should not be under pressure from Laloo Yadav to give him Railway ministry. Well, lets hope we will be able to see a better tomorrow in a few days from now.

The biggest loser in this election according to me is Laloo Prasad Yadav whose party only managed to bag 4 seats, but his condition is now like "dhobi ka doggy na ghar ka na ghaat ka." Why I am saying this is because before election he snapped electoral ties with Congress in hopes of getting a large chunk of seats and be in even better position to bargain, but now with Nitish Kumar delivering a knock-out performance, Laloo Yadav might find his days numbered in the political circuit because he is no one in Bihar and now will become no one in Center too.

This might also be the end of the road for the Iron Man L K Advani also and we might see more youthful leaders taking centerstage which might come as a bleesing in disguise for them just like the Indian team who has been doing just too good with his youth brigade after the likes of Ganguli, Dravid, Kumble, Laxman, and Tendulkar (playing very little now) either retired or were kept out on purpose.

So lets all hope for a new shining India...
