The so-called mahaghatabandan (grand coalition) is not interested in governing the country. Their main agenda was to stop Narendra Modi coming back to power. That is because he has stopped illegal activities involving money laundering and corruption. His anti-corruption initiatives have irked almost all the opposition parties. That is the only reason these parties got together to float the grand coalition. However, people realise this and they have rejected the coalition. The Congress and other political parties cannot challenge Modi and his team in forming the government, so now they will raise questions on the veracity of the process and the EVMs since the mandate might not come be their favour.

*There is no reason for the Indian electorate to re-elect Narendra Modi with such an overwhelming majority in view of his bleak track record in governance (Indian elections: 5 tasks for the new government; KT May 21). The 'exit polls' have simply manipulated the statistics to confound the populace and it is unbecoming of a news agency like Reuters to comment on the forthcoming problems to be faced by the Modi government. It is as clear as day that Modi has failed on all fronts, however, he has been immensely helped by the incompetence of the Congress high command which provided enough fodder for his campaign.
