People of UP may have given a good bye to BSP and unaccepted the government of Congress and BJP but incidence and aftershocks after choosing of Samajwadi Party would have given a thunder shock to the people and may have even put them in a confusion whether they have chosen a right candidate or right government or not.

Ever since Samajwadi party has won the elections complains and incidence of there “Goonda acts” are started coming in limelight.

 The very first one was on 6th March on the day of declaration of result itself and this was the killing of a small boy during firing of shots in victory by the SP workers which mistakenly got struck on a small boy who died. This was an incidence of Sambhal where a 12 year boy was killed during celebratory firing.

The second incidence came from Jhansi where SP candidates assaulted the journalist present at the counting centre and later locked them in the rooms for many hours.

The third incidence came from Sitapur where SP workers tried to put independent candidate’s house on fire, these workers are said to be supporters of SP MLA Jeena Babu, though two were arrested by police,  reports also says that they even open fire at the suppoters of that independent candidate in which 4 people were injured.

On all these incidence party’s youth leader Akhilesh Yadav said that strict actions will be taken against all those who are responsible for the same and he further issued strict instructions for the party workers on the same.

Election results seems to be a thunder shock for many but the worst affected in Up was the UP CM mayawati. Mayawati who while visiting to the Governor B.L Joshi yesterday didn’t even preferred to enter from the front gate where media was waiting for her rather she prefered to enter from the other gate playing hide and seek with the media.

Mayawati submitted her resignation letter to the Governor and then came out for the interaction with the media. While talking to the media she said that she took over the post of Chief minister in 2007 and in very difficult circumstances she formed her governmnet and in last five years she dedicated for the development of the state and succeeded too despite of negative attitude of the centre and opposition.

She said she also worked for the development and upliftment of the minorities, dalits and poor and took up all possible measures for their upliftment.

For her loss and SP’s victory she blamed BJP and Congress with their campaign on the quota issue. She said the Congress had first promised a quota for the minorities from the reservation for Other Backward Classes (OBCs), which the BJP used to garner support from the OBCs and upper castes. She said ultimately, the Samajwadi Party reaped the benefits of all this, with the minorities, in particular, voting in large numbers for it.

She said the people would soon get tired of the style of functioning of the SP, and remarked that the state had witnessed some glimpses of this yesterday itself, referring to the incidents of violence in a few places during victory celebrations by SP supporters.

Victory seems not just enough for choosing the CM of a state, the suspense continues on who will take the responsibility of CM of Uttar Preadesh? Exit poll and poll result giving the same equation of SP’s victory in the 2012 elections, giving a thunder shock to parties like BSP, Congress and BJP who ended their campaign blaming each other which gave a narrow escape for  Samajwadi party for the victory in these election.

The entire credit goes to the young leader Akhilesh Yadav son of Mulayam Singn Yadav who on his cycle gathered votes of the people and now who has become the voice of youth. But the suspense in the party continues over who will head and take party to further enlightenment by becoming the CM, while Akhilesh says in every interview that he and party workers wants Netaji i.e. Mulayam singh to be the CM but there is a big confusion over that as many party members say that they want Akhilesh to head as the CM of the state.

As till now there is no confirmation on who will head as the CM as party has decided to take final decision after Holi till then the mystery for all continues on this matter.

This seems a big holi gift for the crisis ridden Kingfisher Airlines that the oil companies has resumed fuel supply to Kingfisher Airlines after receiving full payment from the Airlines

Day before oil companies pulled supply  from KFA due to non-payment which gave a big shock to the KFA and with this the International Air Transport Association also barred the agents from booking any KFA’s flights.

Six kingfisher fights were delayed on Wednesday due to absence of fuel supply at Mumbai and thus passengers suffered in a big way.

Kingfisher Airlines also got warning from the IATA on the same earlier also, which resulted in barring of its services on Wednesday, but KFA has promised to pay back the debts as soon as possible.

Already 19 accounts of KFA are frozen, Income Tax department has recovered 23 crore from KFA so far and soon they will attach its property also in the same.
