Who is going to be the next Prime Minister of India? Election Results 2019

Who is going to be the next Prime Minister of India – Election Results 2019

India, the world’s largest democracy had a 7-week long election process which ended a few days ago. 542 seats and 8000 candidates fighting for it. Counting starts tomorrow morning and by this time tomorrow, we will know Election Results and what people have decided. Whether people let Modi 2.0 starts or Rahul Gandhi Rules.

Indian voters are always capable of giving surprises. No matter who wins, the real winner will be India’s democracy. A day to celebrate India’s democracy.

Election Results 2019 – Vote Counting

Counting starts at 8 am IST and halfway through the counting process, we could see the trend and somewhat guess the winner. Winner of each constituency will also be declared tomorrow.

Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) and BJP led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) are the two largest pre-poll coalitions in this election. However, the state (regional) parties will play a big role in deciding the government formation. The regional parties which are not of any alliance will have the numbers to tilt the scales.

For the first time in a Lok Sabha elections, the results of Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) will be matched with VVPAT slips. VVPAT slips are generated by paper trail machines. Before announcing the final results, 5 randomly selected EVMs will be counted in each Assembly segment after EVM votes are counted. Results may be delayed by 3-4 hours due to VVPAT counting, says EC

The President’s role after the elections is very important as there is a huge chance of a hung verdict. There is no rule book for him. President Ram Kovind is most likely to invite the pre-poll largest alliance with the highest number of seats will get the first chance to prove the majority and form the government.

CSK is popular for proving their haters wrong and they could do it once again in this tournament when they take on MI in the IPL 2019 Final at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad.

 

Chandrayaan 2 to land On Moon – India likely to do the Moon landing on the 6th of September 2019

Chandrayaan 2 to land On Moon – India is likely to do the Moon landing on the 6th of September 2019.

When Chandrayaan 2 lands on the moon, India will become the 4th country after Russia, US, and China to land spacecraft on the Moon.

The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) scheduled to launch Chandrayaan 2, India second lunar mission between 9 and 16th of July. It is the “most complex mission” undertaken by ISRO. ISRO said in a statement that
All the modules are getting ready for Chandrayaan-2 launch during the window of July 09 to July 16, 2019, with an expected Moon landing on September 06, 2019 9 (sic)

The ISRO press release states “the Orbiter and Lander modules of Chandrayaan-2 will be stacked together as an integrated module. It will fit into the GSLV MK-III rocket. The rover will be tucked away inside the Lander, named Vikram. Once the spacecraft has been launched into Earth’s orbit by the GSLV, the Chandrayaan-2 integrated module will be released. This spacecraft has its own Orbiter propulsion module which will power the vehicle’s escape out of Earth’s orbit and into the Moon’s

ISRO states on its website that, Once the spacecraft reaches the Moon’s orbit, it will attempt to make a soft landing in a region 600 kilometres. It will launch spacecraft away from the lunar South pole. The Pragyaan rover will roll out of the Vikram lander carrying an array of scientific instruments. These instruments are meant to study the lunar surface. Some of the instruments in the mission will also be mounted on the lander and orbiter. The orbiter module of Chandrayaan-2 will circle the moon and relay data and also information about conditions on the surface.

The payloads will collect scientific information on lunar topography, mineralogy, elemental abundance, lunar exosphere and signatures of hydroxyl and water-ice,the statement adds.

Chandrayaan-2 is a follow-up mission to Chandrayaan-1 which was launched in 2008. In 2009, Chandrayaan-1 did the first confirmation of water on the moon in the form of hydroxyl ions.

Let us wish the ISRO team successfully lands Chandrayaan-2 on the lunar surface.

India Strikes, Salute IAF Pilots – Express your solidarity for defending the country’s unity and integrity.

IAF strikes terror camps in Pakistan After Pulwama Attack.

India carried out pre-dawn air strikes on terror camps across the Line of Control on Tuesday. At around 3:30 this morning, 12 Mirage 2000 fighter jets of the Indian Air Force dropped 1,000 kg bombs on terror camps of the Jaish-e-Mohammed, Lashkar-e-Taiba and Hizbul Mujahideen, news agency ANI reported, quoting Air Force sources. Reported ndtv.com

Also reported that “The military has taken this necessary step for the country’s security. It was an act of extreme valour. PM Modi had earlier given the armed forces the freedom to take action. Today, the entire country is with the forces,” Union Minister Prakash Javadekar told reporters in the first official acknowledgment of the operation.

India carried out the strikes two weeks after the terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama, in which over 40 soldiers of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) were killed when a suicide bomber of the Jaish-e-Mohammed exploded a car full of bombs next to a security convoy.

The strikes were “100 percent successful” and went exactly as planned, sources told NDTV. Terror camps and control rooms of the Jaish were hit. A large number of JeM terrorists killed in Indian air strike.
