Today's twitter updates
  • 10:48 If the UPA can form a government on their own, without the Left and the SP, there is hope that this government will be a lot better. #
  • 10:50 Impressive: RT @m_mekin Karnataka results here karnatakaelections2009.gov.in/. #
  • 11:01 Very refreshing to see Shashi Tharoor on NDTV. I hope Tharoor as foreign affairs minister isn't just a whim. #
  • 11:13 Many performing but long term incumbent CMs doing remarkably well: Modi, Shiela Dixit, Nitish, SS Chauhan, Patnaik... #
  • 11:19 Major spoilers this time: Raj Thackeray, Vijay Kanth and Chiranjeevi. Chiru in fact has been more than just a spoiler. #
  • 11:24 Biggest winners: TMC & Mamata in WB, Cong in UP,Rajasthan and Kerala, Chiru in AP #
  • 11:25 Surprisingly holding on: DMK in TN, Patnaik in Orissa, Cong and NCP in Maharashtra #
  • 11:26 Biggest losers: Left in WB & Kerala, Lalu and Paswan in Bihar, Akalis in Punjab. #
  • 11:28 Opportunist losers: PMK and brigade in TN, TRS in Andhra. #
  • 11:30 Heavy weights trailing: Mani Shankar Aiyar, Chidambaram, Jaswant Singh, Murli Manohar Joshi.... #
  • 11:31 #indiavotes09 is now a trending topic and I just forgot to tag so many tweets with that! #
  • 12:11 If Rajnath is still wondering why Kar and Mah let BJP down. I've one letter for him: 'M'. M for Malegaon & M for Mutalik. #indiavotes09. #
  • 12:15 @shettyb With less than 5 seats, Cong has no obligation to include Lalu and Paswan in the government. #
  • 12:24 Cong, NCP & TMC is basically the Cong(I) of old - 225 in all -- very close to the 1991 number, I guess. #indiavotes09 #
  • 12:31 @shettyb You are right in a way, but these issues have a larger impact on the image of the party. They are not so localized. #indiavotes09 #
  • 12:32 BJP also close to 1991 number, like Cong. I hope an Ayodhya is not in order! #indiavotes09. #
  • 13:27 In WB, Kerala, AP, TN - places were Cong has gained mainly, BJP has virtually no presence. And that's nearly 150 seats. #indiavotes09 #
  • 15:21 This quite clearly is a vote against the third, fourth and the sundry fronts. #indiavotes09 #
  • 15:24 BJP's major lacunae: young leadership, strong issues, national presence. They have some hard choices to make. #indiavotes09. #
  • 15:32 @shettyb Renuka has been quite a loose canon. News is just in that she lost. #indiavotes09. #
  • 15:39 Does anyone have confirmed news about Chidambaram? #indiavotes09. #
  • 15:45 @shettyb I heard there was a recounting ordered after the results were first announced around 1:30. #
  • 15:51 Most of congress' young turks have done well. Hope to see a much younger cabinet. Helps that Arjun and Natwar aren't around. #indiavotes09 #
  • 16:06 RT @nnachi sivaganga recounting. last status is chidambaram leading by 2k votes. #
  • 16:08 Mukul Kesavan and Vir Sanghvi have been awesome as panelists. Prize catches by NDTV. #indiavotes09 #
  • 16:25 BJP is a trending topic. What?! #indiavotes09 #
  • 16:27 @kadambariyer Heh. She might, if you are insinuating Barkha being calm and quiet is a threat to national security. #
  • 16:29 RT @jyothirmayee #indiavotes09 Wow in just 2 minutes Congress replaced BJP in the top 10 trending topics! I wonder what is happening. #
  • 16:32 If Dr Singh completes a full term, he'll be the first since Nehru to do so. #indiavotes09 #

Hey, this post was very useful. I have been totally out of touch with the Indian election scene. Luckily a few colleagues here are more interested than me and I get to know tidbits.

Yeah, I hope Shashi Tharoor is drawn into the government some how. His victory is very encouraging.
