According to the latest pre-poll survey by ABP News-Nielsen if Lok Sabha elections are held today, a big surge for BJP from the last election is predicted, taking the seat count for the National Democratic Alliance that it leads to 233. That compares with 159 Lok Sabha seats for NDA in 2009.

The opinion poll has found that NDA is set to win 233 seats in the 543-seat parliament while the incumbent UPA-II government is projected to win a mere 119 seats.

According to the projection, BJP alone will get 209 (it won only 116 seats in 2009) seats. 

The Congress is projected to get only 91 (won 206 seats in 2009) seats--115 less than 2009 seat position in the Lower House.

Arvind Kejriwal’s AAP predicted to get around 4 seats in the 543-member House of Lok Sabha.

The man whom many already proclaim as the Future Prime Minister of India refuses to take any questions.

The man who once famously said that he could be prime minister at 25 is also refusing to take questions — at least anymore.

But the man who is the President of the United States (POTUS) seems to be more than willing to take all sorts of questions.

A Pew Research Center survey conducted between December 7, 2013 and January 12, 2014 based on face-to-face interviews with 2,464 randomly selected adults and a margin of error of 3.8% says:

More than six-in-ten Indians (63%) prefer the BJP to lead the next Indian national government. Just two-in-ten (19%) pick the Indian National Congress. Other parties have the support of 12% of the public. BJP backing is consistent across age groups. And support is almost equal between rural (64%) and urban (60%) Indians.
