More the drama more would be the tension! There might be communal tension if hype is increased and if at all it happens, Modi and BJP would be held responsible for that! Many SP supporters on TV channels are now saying that, had there been meeting in Beniabagh, it could have given birth to the possibility of violence since it is a Muslim area. In the past, after a post BJP rally, there were large scale riots (during the period of 1989-1992)!
At this closing hour of election campaigning, BJP must be mature and sensible to such issues as the credibility acquired by Narendra Modi would be lost if such things happen! The party should remember that at a heightened emotional tension, even a small thug can incite violence!
Regarding Chief Election Commissioner’s conduct, there were many allegations from many quarters starting from TMC, CPM, SP, BSP, even the Congress in some states are complaining of either bias or ineffectiveness. Reports are also there of large scale rigging in West Bengal, UP and at many other places.
However, I don’t think CEC is biased or ineffective. It appears that Mr. Sampath is a typical bureaucrat who trusts the report of the officers allotted to him. No returning and polling officers are permanently working under EC. They are just deputed from various government departments. Mr. Sampath is not proactive to the political parties' complaints, rather trust the report from the officer.
No election can be error proof. What matters is, public support and decency. BJP shouldn’t forget that Indian public is not fool. They can understand the matter if communicated well. But if there would be a drama and too much dragging of an issue, public too reject it.
Public can be considered like an elastic band. You can stretch it to a limit as it’s very flexible. If you stretch it beyond limit, then it would cut at a point and hurt the holding hand while recouping! Thus better BJP doesn't repeat any drama in Varanasi!
