The assembly elections in the states of Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh are scheduled to be held by the end of this year. The terms for the legislative assemblies of these two stats are going to end in the January 2018 so the polls must be conducted by the election commission before that period. Gujarat is particularly very crucial for the BJP as it is the home state of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Although the polls surveys and political experts are of the opinion that BJP is likely to sweep the Gujarat assembly elections for the consecutive sixth time in a row but the planetary indications in the horoscope of Gujarat states are showing different results. I had written on this subject for the website of Hindi News Paper Amar Ujala and in the astrology magazine Express Star Teller earlier in 2015 after ‘Patidar’ agitation took place . As per my analysis these elections will break the myth of ‘Gujarat Model’ of Modi which was highly propagated during the general elections of 2014.
The BJP is in power in the Gujarat state since 1995 and they have almost decimated Congress party at all levels. But now the horoscope of Gujarat states shows that there are good chances for the Congress party to turn the tables though an electoral tsunami.
The Congress party has started attacking the policies of Modi government on the ground of growing unemployment and economic slow down. The debacle in implementing the demonetization and GST (Goods and Services Tax) has given a dent to the image of Narendra Modi in the recent past. Now the BJP is facing the attack from within as its veteran leaders Arun Shourie and Yashwant Sinha had criticized the policies of the government. Earlier BJP leader and Rajya Sabha member Subramanian Swamy has warned that ‘Indian economy is in a tailspin and may crash if Modi doesn’t follow urgent course correction’.
India’s GDP growth was 5.7% for the quarter from April to June in the current financial year. Earlier it was 6.1 % for January to March this year. Last year from April to June ( 2016) India’s GDP growth rate was 7.9% which is falling every quarter since Demonetization. Now in this background BJP is likely to face a big challenge when they will go for the assembly polls in Gujarat where an anti-incumbency is a big factor working against them.
Horoscope of Congress Party
2 January 1978, 12:00 noon at Delhi
Balance of Dasha in Vimshottari : 6 Year 2 months 2 days
In the Pisces lagna horoscope of Congress Party the dasha of Jupiter-Venus is in operation from January 2017 to September 2019. Apart from the general elections in 2019 many important assembly polls like in Gujarat, Himachal, Karnataka, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chattishgarh etc. are going to take place in the next 2 years which will fall during this dasha period of Jupiter-Venus in the chart of Congress party. Since Venus as the 3rd and 8th lord is placed in the 10th house of power so the party is likely to make a come back with new strategy. As the lord of 3rd house Venus period will give increase the efforts of Congress leader in connecting with the masses. Being the lord of 8th house in the 10th house along with 6th lord Sun it shows change in party’s strategy and some controversies. The party vice president Rahul Gandhi has now started visiting Hindu temples which is a sign that party is again moving towards ‘soft Hindutava’.
After the debacle of Congress party in the general elections of 2014 a committee was formed under senior leader A.K. Antony which pointed out in its report that Congress party’s ‘anti Hindu’ image was one of the reason for polarization of votes in favor of BJP. Now when the transiting Saturn is going to come over the natal Sun of Congress party their image and perception is likely to change considerably. As per the Nadi text the transiting Saturn over the natal Sun can give changes in career. In horoscope of a political party this transit can give changes in the leadership and functionality of an organization. With Saturn’s entry into Sagittarius on the 26th of October the Rahu Gandhi might be promoted as the party president of Congress. The party under his leadership is likely to move towards the policy of ‘soft Hindutava’ to woo the majority community.
At the time of Gujarat and Himachal assembly polls the period of Jupiter-Venus-Mars will be in operation from 2 November 2017 to 29 December 2017. Since Mars is the lord of 9th house of luck but it is in 6/8 position from the sub period lord Venus so there will be mix results for the Congress party during these elections. The party may win the Gujarat assembly polls but may loose in Himachal where its veteran leader Virbhadra Singh is facing income tax cases and anti-incumbency together as a tough challenge.

This period for the BJP will be lots of dissent in the party against its leadership. The Sun is in Mrityu-Bhagh at the 10th house during its period the power in the party was centralized. The duo of Modi and Shah have been completely dominating the organization and the government at the center. But now the things are likely to change during the upcoming dasha of Moon, from April 2018, which is in Kemadruma yoga.
The current period of Sun-Venus will give the BJP mix results as anter dasha lord Venus is in the 12th house in its own sign. The aspects of 9th and 8th lord Saturn and the 2nd lord Moon on the Venus shows struggle and success both. In Chara dasha the period of Capricorn-Scorpio is running from 5 September 2017 to 4 February 2018. See the concentration of planets in the 8th house from maha dasha rashi Capricorn, it astrologically explain the growing problems and disgruntlement in the party. The Atamakaraka Saturn, Ganatikaraka Jupiter and Rahu falls in the 8th house from Capricorn. These planets are at the 10th house from Scorpio which contain the Amatayakaraka Moon. After the mixed results in the assembly polls of Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh some noises of dissent will be heard in the party against the dictatorship of Modi-Shah duo.
Horoscope of Gujarat State
1 May 1960, 00:00 hours mid night at Ahmadabad
Balance of Dasha in Vimshottari: Rahu 11 years 10 months 12 days
In the Dhanu (Sagittarius) lagna horoscope of Gujarat state the dasha of Mercury-Rahu is in operation from September 2016 to March 2019. The assembly polls will be held during Mercury-Rahu-Mercury which clearly indicate a change in government. Mercury as the lord of 10th house is debliteated in both Rashi and Navamsha chart showing troubles for the government. The anter dasha lord Rahu at the 10th house under the aspect of Mars and Saturn shows situation of ambiguity and crisis for the government. The BJP was not able to groom the replacement of Narendra Modi in the state after he went to the center in 2014. The current chief minister Vijay Rupani came in August 2016 as a replacement of Anandiben Patel who failed to control the Patidar agitation in the state in 2015. Both Anandiben Patel and Vijay Rupani were lacklustre in administration and were merely a pale shadow of Narendra Modi’s stature as Gujarat chief minister.
The Patidar agitation in the leadership of Hardik Patel in 2015 and the Dalit agitation after the Una incident in July 2016 exposed the weakness in the Gujarat BJP. The Modi’s Gujarat model was heavily in favor of industry but failed to address the economic issues in rural areas. Now the Congress can mobilized the growing dissent against Modi’s policies in Gujarat in its favor. The transit of Saturn from Sagittarius will give its 10th aspect to the Virgo the 10th house of Gujarat state signalling a change in regime. Congress may pull-off a surprise win in Gujarat which will be a huge setback for prime minister Narendar Modi.
Horoscope of Himachal Pradesh
25 January 1971, 00:00 hours mid night at Shimla

In the Libra lagna horoscope of Himachal Pradesh the ‘Sadhe-Sati’ of Saturn is in operation at present. The Saturn coming at Sagittarius will now be at the natal Moon of Himachal State and over its 3rd house which will bring the change in government during the coming assembly polls.
Congress party is ruling the state under veteran leader and six time chief minister of the state Virbhadra Singh who is now under pressure due to corruption charges. The party failed to find a good replacement for this senior leader who is facing a CBI inquiry for owing assets to the tune of Rs.6.1 crore disproportionate to his known sources of income. Now the coming dasha of Rahu-Jupiter from 18 November 2017 to 12 April 2020 shows that the new government in the state will be strong and will enjoy a good reputation. The anter dasha lord Jupiter is with 7th lord Mars and lagna lord Venus showing a stable government in the state. The BJP may come at the helm of affairs of Himachal Pradesh after defeating the Congress in the coming assembly elections.
