New Delhi, Apr 23 : The BJP could be headed for a landslide victory in the Delhi municipal polls with two exit polls predicting the party finishing way ahead of the AAP and the Congress with over 200 of the 270 wards where polling was held today.

Going by the projected figures, the AAP could well be staring at a rout on its home turf, barely two years into its rise to power bagging a staggering 67 of the 70 Assembly seats, while the Congress’ attempt to regain ground may come a cropper.

According to the India Today-Axis exit poll, the BJP may bag anything between 202 and 220 seats, while the AAP and the Congress will score something around 23-35 and 19-31 respectively.

The CVoter-ABP exit poll claimed the BJP was likely to sweep Delhi with 218 seats, limiting the AAP and the Congress to 24 and 22 seats respectively.

Polling was held in 270 wards of the three municipal corporations. The election to two wards has been postponed due to the death of candidates.

Bhopal, Oct 25 : With just a few days left for the Madhya Pradesh Assembly bypolls, Congress MLA Rahul Lodhi from Damoh on Sunday resigned from his Assembly membership and joined the BJP.

After submitting his resignation to Pro Tem Speaker Rameshwar Sharma, Lodhi reached BJP’s state office and was inducted as its member in the presence of Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, party state President Vishnu Dutt Sharma and Urban Administration Minister Bhupendra Singh.

However, the Pro Tem Speaker told the media that Lodhi had sought to resign two days ago but was asked to reconsider his decision. On Saturday, he reiterated his desire to resign and finally quit on Sunday.

Earlier this year, 22 Congress MLAs had resigned from their Assembly membership and joined the BJP under the leadership of Jyotiraditya Scindia, which led to the collapse of the then Kamal Nath-led Congress government.

Three more Congress MLAs later resigned from the Assembly. Now, the latest blow to the Congress has come with the resignation of Rahul Lodhi.

The Madhya Pradesh by-elections in 28 Assembly segments are slated for November 3.

Obama scoffs at Trump’s ’60 Minutes’ interview

Barack Obama

At an event in Miami Florida, former U.S. President Barack Obama scoffed at President Donald Trump for walking out of a ’60 Minutes’ interview.

Former President Barack Obama lit into President Trump during a drive-in rally at the Florida International University campus in support of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden on Saturday.

With hundreds of cars honking, Obama tore into Trump from the start. The former president said the current occupant in the White House has shown little interest in taking his job seriously and that he “treats the presidency like a reality show.”

Trump “hasn’t shown any interest in doing the work or helping anybody except himself and his friends or treating the presidency like a reality show to give himself more attention. And as we noted the other day, his TV ratings are down,” Obama said.

Obama added, “The rest of us have to live with the consequences of what he’s done.”

The former president went on to speak about those consequences as it relates to Trump’s bungling of the pandemic response. And he encouraged Floridians to make Trump a one-term president.

“At least 220,000 Americans are dead. More than 100,000 small businesses have closed. Half a million jobs are gone. Half a million jobs are gone. Right here in Florida. Half a million jobs,” Obama said. “You delivered twice for me, Florida, and now I’m asking you to deliver for Joe and for Kamala [Harris].”

Bengaluru: Upping his ante against the ruling BJP candidate, N. Muniratna, Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee president D. K. Shivakumar on Saturday appealed to voters not to cast their franchise against such legislators who “sold their previous mandate” for money.

Addressing a poll rally in Rajarajeshwari Nagar constituency here, Shivakumar charged that Munirtana is responsible for this by-election, which was unwarranted. “People of this constituency at least now they should wake up and teach lessons to such “traders”, who did not even hesitate to sell the people’s mandate for their own benefit,” he said.

Recalling few instances of BJP women workers in the constituency filing cases against Muniratna, Shivakumar said that Muniratna is known for several wrongdoings and one of them is misbehaving with women too.

“Did you all not know how he ill-treated women workers of BJP then? Women voters should not forget these things. He should be taught a lesson by women voters of this constituency,” he said.

Meanwhile, Congress candidate, H. Kusuma who accompanied Shivakumar, asserted that she was born here and is a daughter of this constituency. “Please vote for your daughter,” she appealed and tried to connect herself with women voters emotionally.

She added that her only aim was to convert this constituency into a fearless one. “People are living in fear because of my rival. I want to get rid of the fear from people’s hearts,” she said.
