The results are yet to be finalised but the trends are clear: three states — Assam, Kerala, and West Bengal — have voted the state governments back to power and Tamil Nadu is the exception here. Another trend that is clear is that the national parties, the BJP, and the Congress, are not matching up to the regional parties. What does this show about Indian polity? Is the BJP on the back foot? What is the future of Congress? Moneycontrol Opinion Editor Viju Cherian in discussion with Political Commentator Amitabh Tiwari.
Trends suggest that the results are mirroring exit poll predictions: It looks like the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will be coming back to power in Assam, the trends in West Bengal suggest that Mamata Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress has beaten anti-incumbency, the Left government will stay in office and in Tamil Nadu, the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) has dislodged the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK). Stability and continuity seem to be the mantra for now. Network 18’s Consulting Editor Gaurav Choudhury in discussion with Moneycontrol’s Opinion Editor Viju Cherian.

The eight-phase West Bengal elections will start on March 27. The ruling Trinamool Congress is fighting a pitched battle with an emerging Bharatiya Janata Party.
