India counts (the votes)

I'm following results here [via Shivam]. Mainly because it cuts the chatter (aren't the talking heads on TV unbearable?).

At 9.10 am, Andhra Pradesh's trends.

On another note, the Telangana Rashtriya Samiti people are being kept under K. Chandrasekhar Rao's careful eye. Just as a matter of general interest to the readers of this blog, the TRS Bhavan's rooms are all pink (desolated to say I can't find a link).

Well, one heaves a sigh of relief that there will be no ugly horse-trading either at the centre or the state.

Eveything about the TRS is well, amusing, no?

szer: you were watching ndtv? they (and everyone else) was so unbearable. though i have to admit i occassionally tuned into cnn-ibn to watch ram guha wave his hands and tell cricketing anecdotes to illustrate political truths.

km: i'm sorry; apparently that EC website had a few lakh hits per second and it couldn't take the load (source: DC).

smoke screen: true, true. kcr incarcerated his people in vain. and true also about the trs.

and those rumours about that fire in the secretariat? seems to have been a waste, no?

ram guha and yogendra yadav are the only redeeming peoples on CNN. Everytime I see Rajdeep hyperventilating I want to punch the screen. And serious wtf at his random pointless comments which serve no purpose except to show how chummy he is with all the politicians. I mean I don't really need to know who smsed you last night or who invited you to Srinagar. GAH.

Heh. Yes indeed. If those rumours are true, they must be kicking themselves! Now we will never know of course.
