LOK SABHA ELECTION 2009 Volume-Two by Rakesh Sharma Lok Sabha Election 2009 has produced a decisive verdict which sets a new political trend after 20 years. The people have sent the Bharatiya Janata Party packing and rejecting its politics of exclusion. The verdict has also given a drubbing of historic proportions to both the Left Front and the Third Front. This set of five volumes attempts to map the political context of this election for different parties or their coalitions. Taking a close look at the surprise element of the verdict-the Congress crossing the mark of 200 seats and the UPA coming to majority-it tries to investigate why the people rejected the BJP, the Communist parties and the Third Front. It further analyzes to what extent the caste, leadership, candidate selection and regional issues influenced the people's verdict. Also, it examines the future of coalition politics in India.
