Arvind Kejriwal questions if malfunctioning of EVMs a 'mischief' in Punjab

Representatives of various Resident Welfare Associations (RWAs) on Monday urged Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to get himself treated for his diabetes at the mohalla clinics instead of going to Bengaluru. Both states recorded historic turnouts-78.62 per cent in Punjab and 83 per cent in Goa. A win in either state will give AAP access to state powers like control over the state police for maintaining law and order - something that AAP has been fighting for in Delhi.

These "Maan Patras", similar to the various "Dialogues" held by the party in the run-up to the Assembly elections in Delhi, Punjab and Goa, will then be handed over to current Chief Minister Vijay Rupani.

"The Corporations aren't cooperating with the Delhi government".

Punjab's electoral mathematics is very complex and sane people should not jump to any conclusion after merely getting some sample data.When entire data could be misleading how can one trust on opinion polls based on sample data. That over 80 per cent polling was recorded in Malwa region which accounts for 69 seats of a total of 117 seats in the Assembly seems an encouraging factor for AAP which has made substantial inroads in that region. That this would be sufficient to offset the gains of AAP, however, seems unlikely.

Eyeing a second consecutive term in the western coastal State, the ruling BJP, which has been banking on its most popular leader of the State Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar, is engaged in a closely-fought race with the Opposition Congress, AAP and an alliance of MGP, Shiv Sena, Goa Suraksha Manch, an RSS splinter group. Nevertheless, the BJP seems to have an edge.
