Although the results of the State Assembly elections have seen Congress to power in Haryana, Arunachal and Maharashtra, Professor Subrata Mukherjee of the Department of Political Science in Delhi University, says that the Congress has suffered a slight setback in comparison to its performance in the Lok Sabha elections, and the results could actually spell the beginning of a comeback for the opposition.
In this podcast, Mukherjee points out a number of significant trends that have come out of this election, including a rise in the rural voter base for the Shiv Sena in Maharashtra, the relative unimportance of development indices as an election issue and how the results in Arunachal are an indication of the weakness of the party system in India.
