Mumbai: Every political party carries out internal surveys from time to time, especially during elections. Now the Bharatiya Janata Party's survey of its prospects in Maharashtra has thrown up some interesting results.
For one, they've realised that Chief Minister Ashok Chavan is quite a popular leader, but they aren't too worried.
As per the survey by the BJP, 61 per cent want change in Maharashtra while 36 per cent want continuity.
The survey also suggests that 44 per cent of the people in Maharashtra find Ashok Chavan the most popular leader; Uddhav follows Chavan in the ranking.
However, the BJP feels that the Congress-NCP boat is rocking due to the presence of 120 rebels in fray. It is close to what happened in 1995 when there were a large number of rebels and the Congress was restricted to 80 odd seats.
