Just a reminder that leads will not be known by 11 AM as is usual for an election these days, but by 4 PM, so the wait will be longer. This is because for the first time the VVPAT will also be counted and tallied with the EVMs.
5 polling booths in every Assembly constituency will be taken up for VVPAT counting. In 4120 assembly constituencies, that's 20,600 polling booths that will come up for VVPAT tallying.
This is about 2% of the 10.3 lakh booths where voting took place nationwide
Postal votes will be counted first as always, starting 8 AM, then the EVM votes, and then the VVPAT tallied. This VVPAT tally is expected to delay information on leads by 4-5 hours. #2019Elections

To be honest I am concerned about Maharashtra. I have no worries on Rajasthan, Gujarat, West Bengal, Haryana, Delhi, Orissa, Karnataka, not even TN and UP but here something seems to be wrong, don't know what
More on Shiv Sena
Anyways we will see on 23 May
For them, ISL*MIC Ummah is the one and only truth
Religion before everything else.
Duffer Hindu named Communists should wake up, smell coffee and give up this degenerate ideology called Communism, which is a proxy of Isla*ism and come back to hindu roots
Aside, I think Kanhaiyya comes from a super rich family and not from poor family as projected by his media slaves.
Evident from the fact that he had enough money to purchase rental services of, for-hire Bollywood bhaands like Javed Hatkar, Sabana Ajmi, Sweara Baskhar etc.

THREAD @EU_Commission asks 4 reflection when action already overdue. EU may be out of time because #2019Elections could produce a @Europarl_EN & Commission with 2 many MEPs (including mainstream) who don't want to protect #RuleOfLaw #Vote4Values /1
Positive - @EU_Commission Communication reverses its position & finally acknowledges that the tools it has in place are inadequate to protect #RuleofLaw. Something @LibertiesEU & academics have maintained since 2014. /2
Positive - important tools in pipeline: linking EU funding to respect 4 #RuleofLaw & funding for rights groups to create grassroots support among public to resist damaging reforms at national level. Both measures suggested by @LibertiesEU /3

Dozens of villages in West UP lead hellish lives as a highly polluting industry has killed the river irrigating their region and has contaminated groundwater+soil to the extent they've given up groundwater consumption entirely.

My report for @SwarajyaMag coming shortly.
#Meerut's slaughterhouses first killed their river.

Now meat plants have contaminated their groundwater to the extent that they had to stop its use entirely.

My report from Western #UttarPradesh of a highly polluting industry and the state's abdication.…
This is state of groundwater in villages affected by slaughterhouses and meat plants in #Meerut's #Kharkhauda.

Govt has set up overhead water tanks away from villages with piped connections to villages BUT that's it. Villagers maintain those tanks w/ their own money.

Kwara By-Election: Is @NGRSenate Now An Election Tribunal?The decision by @NGRSenate to “investigate” circumstances leading to @OfficialPDPNig loss in Kwara @HouseNGR by-election must be seen for what it is - an abuse of @nassnigeria powers to pursue selfish political ends.
While @OfficialAPCNg condemns this curious @NGRSenate investigation of the by-election which took place in the home state of @SPNigeria @bukolasaraki, we find it curious that other by-elections conducted in Katsina & Bauchi have not received similar attention from @NGRSenate
It is clear that the sweet victory by the @OfficialAPCNg @HouseNGR candidate, Alhaji Raheem Olawuyi-Ajuloopin in the by-election has hit the overrated federal lawmakers from Kwara State badly.

Your reasoning is horribly woolly & anything but logical for these four reasons:

1. It was off point because my tweet didn't necessitate the illogical jump that you made.

2. You didn't address the issue of serious human right violation by your principal which I pointed out ...
3. How many APC chieftains had never been PDP members?

4. #2019 election is about respecting one's conscience: I don't campaign for a pol. party & a candidate under whose nepotistic watch many lives have been wasted, millions thrown into unemployment & hardship increased ....
Moreover, can you say this prayer: 'God treat me the way Buhari has treated the Nigerian economy & handled the Shiites/IPOB crises'

If you cannot say this prayer, then why offer Buhari to Nigerians as an option? ....

Whether we like it or not, the so-called R-APC can't be discounted. They are part of the system and if we see realignments of parties like in 2014, they may win and Nigeria will, once again, be set back decades behind any serious country. I am not happy, just stating the fact.
Again, there is nothing like a single northern bloc, the minorities in N/Nigeria had suffered enough. And this time round, there is growing interest for ppl to get PVC and vote out a govt, they feel does not only marginalized them, but has shown zero interest in their well-being.
Another thing that may play into the hands of the opposition is, military campaigns against #BH is reduced to more than 70% in the raining season and there has been a steady surge in attacks in Dec. Jan. Feb. in the last four yrs. This season, coincides with campaigns elections?

We need to build these institutions to evolve parallel ecosystem with our own resources to safeguard Hindus,Temples,Education,Legal,Health,Demography &finally defeat these evil forces. We cannot afford to wait any longer as our enemies are much ahead in the race to eliminate us.
We also request @BJP4India to bringout white papers on #ReclaimTemples #Punarutthana #FreeTemples census in all your governing states including their audit reports. We need 100s of TTDs & can administer on our own. We no need to wait for any constitutional change/RS numbers
