Are we heading for early Lok Sabha polls?

November 26, 2013 22:51 IST

The Congress party is toying with the idea of going for early polls if it does well in the five state assembly elections.

The idea of early polls has gained currency at 10 Janpath and 7 Race Course Road after the Congress war room received "positive" feedback about the party’s prospects in Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh.

Word from 15 Gurudwara Rakab Ganj is that Congress may post an upset win in Bhopal. If that happens, Congress managers are upbeat about another state -- either Delhi or Rajasthan -- coming into their kitty.

In such a "dream scenario", they feel the February 2014 Lok Sabha polls would demolish the Narendra Modi-led BJP.

The big question is whether luck would smile on the grand old party in such a lavish manner.
