My analysis of Odisha elections — 2017

Odisha Panchayat Election 2017

The concurrent election in Odisha just drew to a close and I did an analysis on the results available tentatively. Notice that there is no visible errors here, even if I e.g. adjusted 854 to 850 and so on.

If you add up the % figures they add to 100% perfectly — I simply did the calculation and applied no tricks, that means there is some simple pattern in the data which is the reason I made this post.

Making small changes in large numbers calls to Euclid every-time and makes sure nothing changes as such. Even if there would be a little change it would really matter not if numbers are properly normalized ( that is adjusted to 100% ) which becomes difficult if there are inherent larger errors.

Last election ( 2012 ) # of seats won ( % of 850 ) followed by the same in 2017.

2012 BJD: 76, Cong: 14, BJP: 4, Others: 6.
2017 BJD: 53, Cong: 8, BJP: 37, Others: 2.
Do you see what Odisha did to BJD?

In 2012 there was a 52 % disparity between seats won by ruling party BJD and seats won by oppositions members. The mentioned asymmetry was calculated like this

BJP is not interested in rape, because they are not committed by congress.

BJP is not interested in rapes because they are not committed by congress.

You know what’s trending today on twitter. ‪#‎BJPstandswithrapists‬

These are the people that will make India digital.

1. Kiran Bedi — supposedly a strong proponent of safety of citizen and heralded as a pioneer of “liberalization of women” in the country and a brave lady, because she retired with a very high designation of police officer in the country.

She says >> small and insignificant RAPEs — and assaults, gets more coverage in media and they are overshadowing the issue of corruption.

Lesson; some rapes can be small. More so, BJP is not interested in rapes because they are not committed by congress. Corruption, when uttered by BJP has to be read as Congress, because that is how BJP sways its vote bank, by construing an image of Congress as an epitome of corruption in the country, while totally absolving the massive amount of corruption it has enacted in the very few years it has ruled in the country.

2. FM — is it a radio or an honorable minister, Arun Jaitley — says, one SMALL incident of rape in Delhi.

Lesson; rapes can be small, all rapes are not as important. It shall not concern us for various reason. Today India lost a very small match against australia, let’s wait for the world cup. Let’s not blast our honorable finance minister. He is only being inspirational.
