However, Gujarat elections do ring warning-bells for ruling alliance at the Centre, headed by Congress towards next Lok Sabha elections. If same scenario continues, then corruption and scams will definitely prevent ruling UPA from returning to power.
It will be in interest of Congress if UPA government legislates drastic poll-reforms, also aimed at preventing chances of corruption amongst politicians. Next Lok Sabha elections should be conducted under such new poll-rules, including also incorporating rule 49(o) for non-to-vote on EVMs.
Congress will not be harmed because present system can never return it to power. However, gamble of such poll-reforms and other anti-graft rules eagerly awaited by people can make people re-think for voting Congress again to power but only for a relatively honest regime for future.
