In 2007 Himachal Pradesh assembly election for first time BJP succeeded in getting a landslide victory in state. Now major question in front of us is that will BJP be successful again in repeating 2007 success or Congress will take advantage of anti-incumbency factor? At present, it is hard to predict a clear picture because there are many negative points against both parties.
Congress’s likely Chief Minister candidate Virbhadra Singh is facing corruption charges and there is negative sentiment against congress central government. On the other hand, BJP is facing internal fight between its top BJP leaders of Himachal Pradesh. If we calculate on all parameters then fight looks equal between BJP and Congress; though anti-incumbency likely to help Congress. In near future, it will become clear to us that which party has edge over other as political fever will increase in state.
We can easily see Himachal government ministers and MLAs rushing to their constituencies to vow voters. However, one thing which is against BJP is clear visibility of anti-incumbency factor on ground which will decrease its numbers of seats considerably, Though, final results will depend on all factors together.
