Consolation in Chunaav 2004

* Almost all Trishul-pushers like Narandra Modi and Murali Manohar Joshi took a beating - the latter was defeated in Allahabad. The big exceptions are Shiv Sena and Adityanath (who won from Gorakhpur, UP). That's bound to reduce the impact of the pressure to move farther right inside the BJP. The re-election of Vajpayee as leader of both BJP and NDA shows he is not going to give in in that battle now.

* BJP alliance opened its account in Kerala - P.C.Thomas won in Muvattupuzha. Ironically, he won not with Hindu votes (as most would assume), but with Christian votes. That is a good sign.
