Elections in last five years cost Rs 1.5 lakh crore: Study - Economic Times
As ongoing Lok Sabha polls reach the sixth phase, a new study has found that the total money spent on all elections in last five years has crossed Rs 1,50,000 crore and over half of these funds have come from " unaccounted sources". The study, conducted by think-tank CMS, comes at a time when various political parties are accusing each other of using alleged black money in the ongoing Lok Sabha polls, which began on April 7 and will continue till May 12.
Muslims may vote for Narendra Modi - Zahir Janmohamed, Guardian
On an unlit lane in Juhapura, a Muslim neighbourhood of Ahmedabad, the largest city in India's western state of Gujarat, 20-year-old Muslim Faizan Mansuri plays cricket on his smartphone. Juhapura, where I have lived since 2012, has few paved roads or sewage systems and each year about 2,000 children are denied an education because of a lack of schools. Once a mixed Hindu and Muslim area in the 1970s, today almost all of us 400,000 residents are Muslim.
Narendra Modi in Varanasi: biggest road-show in world's largest election - Prasad Sanyal, NDTV
Narendra Modi is wearing pristine white, but there is no lack of colour as Varanasi turns out in a celebration extraordinaire to cheer the BJP's prime ministerial candidate. Thousands of BJP workers and supporters have washed the ancient city in saffron. But there is also the red of rose petals being showered from the terraces and windows of homes as Mr Modi's open truck crawls along the two-km route from Banaras Hindu University or BHU where he landed in a helicopter and the collectorate where he will file his nomination papers.
After years it's an election, not just a selection, in Rahul's seat - Himanshi Dhawan, Times of India
Just as an old family retainer tends to get grumpy, Amethi too seems to be in a bit of a sulk. That doesn't mean this pocket borough of the Gandhis is ready to spurn old loyalties, though. For the first time in 15 years, there's a contest, say old-timers. Saffron-green Narendra Modi posters scream from the otherwise dull brick walls of the town. SUVs with flags and loudspeakers choke up Amethi's narrow streets. You feel a buzz here this time. 
Dr BR Ambedkar got the Bharat Ratna only during BJP rule - Ashutosh Bhardwaj, IndianExpress
“Dalits are the original inhabitants of India. Brahmins and other upper castes are Aryans who came from outside. Dr Ambedkar did not embrace Islam because he did not want Dalits to align with Muslims.” This is the “history lesson” that the Sangh Parivar is secretly teaching the Dalits of Agra, a seat reserved for SCs, and considered the “capital of Dalits” because of their numerical dominance in the constituency.
12-yr-olds also voted in this Bihar village - Santosh Singh, IndianExpress
The official voting age may be 18 years, but in Jagmalbigha village, under Khusrupur police station of Patna Saheb Lok Sabha constituency, children between 12-14 years are also reported to have voted on April 17. Moreover, while the village recorded a turnout of almost 70 per cent, not many have the indelible ink mark on their fingers.
How Nitish might lose out to Lalu - Rasheeda Bhagat, Hindu
To understand why Bihar’s Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, till recently hailed as “honest and development-oriented” is losing out to RJD’s Lalu Prasad who was convicted in the fodder scam, you need to focus on Bihar’s complex caste system. In 2005, the JD(U)-BJP combine scripted a new chapter in Bihar’s history by ending Lalu’s 15-year reign and formed what Shaibal Gupta, Member Secretary of ADRI (Asian Development Research Institute), calls “coalition of the extremes.”
Electronic voting machines should be reviewed and updated - Business Standard
The 2014 general elections have been punctuated by many reports of malfunctioning electronic voting machines, or EVMs. In Pune and Jorhat, for instance, defective EVMs were "transferring" all votes to a given party (different parties in these two cases), regardless of the button pressed. It is time the Election Commission reviewed the technology underpinning these devices.
UPA: Defeat by numbers - Siddharth Singh, LiveMint
In recent weeks, there has been academic debate on the United Progressive Alliance (UPA)’s economic record. Many scholars feel the UPA has been unfairly targeted by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and that citizens are being given a pied piper treatment by its prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi.
Telangana tangle: Voters are caught between KCR, Modi - Aurangzeb Naqshbandi, Hindustan Times
Supporters of Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) chief K Chandrasekhara Rao in key parliamentary constituencies present a dichotomy. They want to see BJP’s Narendra Modi as the next prime minister but will vote only for TRS candidates in both assembly and Lok Sabha elections.
