India has spoken: The beginning of Modi's end

In the editorial, the Sena said on Wednesday that the saffron party has lost its way in its own "den".

Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje announced in February 2018 that debts up to Rs 50,000 would be waived, but farmers demanded a full waiver, which the Congress promised. Now, voters are disillusioned.

The Bahujan Samaj Party won two seats and the Samajwadi Party one. While the Congress made major gains across the state, the BJP was losing many seats it has held for long. "I am free now".

It was in keeping with these grandiose assertions that the BJP built the world's tallest statue - of Congress stalwart Vallabhbhai Patel, whom the BJP can be said to have misappropriated from the Congress - and announced the plans for an nearly equally large statue of Lord Ram. "Hum kisi ko mukt nahi karna chahtein", he said.

Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje visited a temple in Rajasthan's Banswara amidst counting of votes. He is set to take the oath to return as the chief minister, tomorrow.

During the early morning press conference, Kamal Nath and Jyotiraditya Scindia reiterated that the Congress has secured "clear majority" in this assembly election, however, it was not yet clear as to how many independent MLAs are going to side with the Congress. But the activities in the opposition BJP has also started. The setback has presented a major challenge to the party that now holds the reins at the centre and is seeking a second term in the general elections due in April next year. A chopper was also arranged for him.

Agree to temporary truce on new auto tariffs
The meeting will also be a test of the personal chemistry between the two leaders, which Trump has hailed as a warm friendship. U.S. president on Saturday agreed to not raise the tariff rate on goods imported from China , the White House announced .

As of 7 p.m. on December 11, 2018, the incumbent party-in power for 15 years to 2018, with Raman Singh the party's longest-running chief minister-was leading in eight reserved seats (28 percent), three fewer than in 2013 when it had won 11. Yet, neither being derisively called "Pappu" or an adolescent kid, or of being a "pathological liar", to quote Arun Jaitley, had any effect on his emergence as a capable leader, who took the lead in addressing the media after the recent opposition conclave while veterans like Sharad Pawar and H D Deve Gowda remained in the background.

She thanked the people of the state, BJP workers, the prime minister and the BJP chief, saying they stood by her as family.

Congress has already said it would not name Gandhi, who is seen as lacking experience, as a prime ministerial candidate.

Of 199 seats in the Rajasthan assembly, the Congress had won 99 seats. However, the party remains in a neck-to-neck battle overall with the BJP, which has been ruling the state for the last 15 years.

He, however, expressed confidence that the Congress will get a majority on its own in the state. This is a shift of power to a "more conservative and vernacular elite" which seems to have escaped the Congress.
