The mood in the counting booth is grim for the Congress party workers as they sit with disappointed faces over the apparent win of the BJP candidate Shirole in Pune. They are frantically asking for updates over the phone after every round.
BJP on the other side, have already started rejoicing and preparing for celebrations. As the lead has grown to more than 70,000 votes, party workers have already started calling their colleagues and friends for celebrations over their obvious win in Pune. In the BJP party office in Pune too, they have started preparing for celebrations. Shirole who is in the polling center right now said, “Thanks to Punekars for showing support. The betterment of Pune and it's infrastructure will be a priority.”
He added, “Looks like BJP is getting majority in the center so India will get a stable government without any other party support so that it will be easier to take public oriented decisions without any other party's pressure.” Shirole hopes that BJP will give the Indian citizens a better government than UPA.
