In a close fight between Union Health and Family Welfare Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad and Dr Jitendra Singh the question every one was asking on Friday Kaun banega MP?
Azad locked in close contest, Kaun Banega MP?
High voter turnout and pattern of voting in two different regions has made the job of poll pundits more difficult. It is going to be a very close call for both the rival candidates, claim majority of poll pundits.
For some who see Union Health Minister a more formidable candidate in comparison to Dr JItendra Singh of BJP the high voter turn out in five assembly segments of Kathua is a cause of concern.
The mood of electorate in the region was against incumbent Congress led UPA government and the overall vote percentage is a clear indication that majority of voters opted for change leaving behind a minuscule electorate who may have supported candidature of Azad.
On the other hand vertical polarisation of votes between Congress and BJP candidates have further led to division to votes between Azad and Dr Jitender Singh. The two other districts of Udhampur and Reasi hold the key to solving this puzzle but the voting percentage and voter profile have further confused poll pundits to give a clear cut prediction.
Majority of poll pundits and senior journalists tracking the campaign of both the candidates are safely claiming one thing the margin between the winning candidate and the runners up would be very marginal and it is anybody’s game.
