"If India have to win,final outcome? One keeps finding meaningful signals that could foreshadow the contours of the story next year State elections often provide such indications Whenever assembly elections take placethere is a temptation to extrapolate the outcomes and imagine what they mean for the shaping of the next Lok Sabha This game becomes even more popular once parliamentary elections are round the corner Last monththree states elected their assemblies In all three cases MeghalayaNagaland and Tripura the ruling parties were returned to power But these being smaller statestheir impact in terms of strength in the Lok Sabha is bound to be limited Togetherthese three states represent only five seats In 2009the UPA had won two of these five seatsthe Left Front had won two and the NDA bagged the remaining one (Nagaland) The situation has not changed much since then except that the NCP in Meghalaya has split and PA Sangma has formed his own party So the assembly results in these states have not thrown up new patterns It ishowevernoteworthy that all three states have re-elected the government in power Does that hold some significance Re-election of the sitting government always has a local context But there is a larger trend as wellone which indicates that anti-incumbency is on its way out This does not mean that a government will always be re-elected; it only means that the unexplained removal of a government is less likely Of coursein the last three yearsquite a few governments have been unseated those in KeralaTamil NaduWest BengalUttar PradeshHimachal PradeshGoa Yetpunishment by the voters is not as random as it appeared to be in the 1990s During the 1990swhen party competition had suddenly opened upnew players roseoften at the state level This allowed voters to experiment with the available options Following Mandalparties tended to emphasise identity markers more than anything else By the late-1990sthough slogans and identity markers continued to adorn manifestos and speechesthe issue of governmental performance assumed salience As a resultthe phenomenon of incumbent governments being voted out of power became somewhat selectiveshaped by the state-level political configuration and performance of the incumbents In some states as in Kerala since earlier timesHimachal and now most probably Goa a bipolar alternation became the norm Governmental performance definitely mattered in many statesas in UP and Tamil Naduand of coursethe weaknesses of the opposition parties/coalitions helped incumbents survive in electionswitness AssamMaharashtraAndhra Pradesh The larger lesson is that the governments performance and clever strategy (in that order) contribute to its survival Howeverthis formula does not mechanically apply to the survival of the Central government In the absence of the towering national level leadership that can sway votersassessment of the Central government is mediated by the concerned partys performance at the state level The National Election Study has found that in 2004voters were roughly equally divided on the issue of whether the state government mattered more to them or the Central government In 2009for every 10 voters to whom the Central government mattered morethere were 17 for whom the state government mattered more This means that a voter in a BJP-ruled state is more likely to vote for the Congress (or the UPA)not because he or she finds the latters performance at the Centre satisfactory but because of the dissatisfaction with the BJP governments performance at the state level That is why states and the performance of state governments are key to shaping voters choice This is also why performance alone will not shape the outcome Consider the states of West BengalUP or Orissa So long as the Trinamool Congressthe Samajwadi Party or the Biju Janata Dal are not aligned with either the UPA or the NDAgood performances by the party in power might not benefit the two larger alliances But unsatisfactory performances by the ruling parties in these states would open up the competition for the Congress and the BJP there In 2009the poor performance of the Bahujan Samaj Party opened the doors to the Congress (the BSPthe Congress and the SP won almost the same number of seats in UP) This is where the issue of coalition-making is bound to enter into calculations Before and after the 2009 parliamentary electionsthe NDA lost allies Since thenthe UPA has lost alliesnamely the TMC The increasing number of parties that are outside both the NDA and the UPA will make the electoral contest much more complicated and fascinating Before the parliamentary electionsin the coming nine monthswe shall witness five keen contests These five states account for 99 parliamentary seats In the current Lok Sabhathe Congress holds 46 of these seats while the BJP had won 49 A mechanical projection based on leads in the assembly segments had suggested that the Congress would get 45 and the BJP 49 seats Thusthe importance of these state elections can hardly be exaggerated for both the Congress and the BJP In three of these states KarnatakaChhattisgarhMadhya Pradesh the BJP is in powerwhile the Congress rules in Delhi and Rajasthan In Delhithe Congress faces fatigue born out of long incumbency This is matched by the inaction and inertia of its main rivalthe BJP In Karnatakathe ruling BJP is in a shambles and challenged by Yeddyurappas newly formed partywhile it is not clear whether the Congress in the state is in a position to take advantage of this situation The BJP had swept Chhattisgarh in the last parliamentary elections while the Congress had fought back after a defeat in the assembly elections in MP In Rajasthanthe BJP was handicapped by acute internal dissensionsduring the assembly as well as the Lok Sabha elections Such state level dynamics and configurations will determine the outcomes in these five assembly elections But one thing is pretty certain: those who win these states willin all likelihoodenjoy an advantage in these states in the parliamentary elections In that sensethe curtains on 2014 will be raised when Karnataka goes to the

CBI had called the staff of Rajendra Kumar for questioning in connection with the case The CBI had conducted a raid on Kumar’s office on 15 December last year at the Delhi Secretariat It had said that

government had alleged that the CBI officials were trying to cover the irregularities in the DDCA under the leadership of Finance Minister Arun Jaitley according to ANI The government also said that the CBI officials were threatening Kumar and asking him to reveal the names of DDCA officials who had met CM Kejriwal "They are threatening him to reveal information regarding meeting of DDCA officials They are putting pressure on him to reveal the names of DDCA officials who gave the information If they are trying to threaten the principal secretary in order to hide the corruption under
