State election results: A busy day for news channels

MUMBAI: The year 2014 saw not only the 16th Lok Sabha election, but a number of states undergoing assembly elections as well.

As the year ends, two states ? Jammu & Kashmir and Jharkhand ? casted their votes and elected their new governments. The result day i.e. 23 December, was a day of excitement for news channels as most of them started early with predictions. As the day progressed, the counting results were displayed on the screens as media stalwarts analysed the results.

The numbers clearly showed the mark that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had left on these states as the BJP won a number of seats. In Jharkhand, the party has won with almost majority while in J&K, it is the second largest party after PDP. However, the ?breaking news? was J&K Chief Minister Omar Abdullah losing from both Beerwah and Sonawar assembly constituency seats.

The news channels focused on the next step of the political parties especially in J&K as there was no clear winner. The channels got a panel discussing the same as well as senior editors within the channel analysed the winners, the overall results as well as what discussions are going on behind the closed doors of parties on their next move.

The analysis continued till late afternoon; with a little break as BJP?s Amit Shah held a press conference to talk about the party?s performance in the two states. ?2014 is the year of BJP,? is what the right-hand man of Modi had to say.

Throughout the day, the channels also gathered as well as took people?s reaction through their digital platforms. Hashtags like #Dec23WithArnab, #NDTVResults were created and promoted on channels as they geared for the big debates to be held at primetime.
