Anti-incumbency strong, Akali SOS to BJP: send Modi - Maneesh Chhibber, IndianExpress
The local leadership of the SAD-BJP has sent an SOS to the managers of Narendra Modi’s campaign, requesting more rallies by the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate. Sources in the BJP said there is realisation that there is no visible Modi “wave” in the state, and that the Congress has managed to strike a chord with voters. There is also acknowledgment of massive anti-incumbency against the SAD-BJP government, seen in the disenchantment of even the SAD’s core voters, especially the Sikh peasantry.
Modi gives Bengal hope, Mamata new worries - Times of India
Narendra Modi bowled a googly to Mamata, offering her an olive branch at a time when she has ratcheted up her anti-NaMo offensive, accusing him of having blood on his hands. "I hope I will get all sorts of cooperation from the West Bengal CM in solving the Singur tangle. Not only for Singur, I hope to get cooperation from the state government in creating a conducive atmosphere for industrialization in the state. Hope Trinamool will not indulge in vote-bank politics on the question of development of the state," Modi told a Bengali daily. 
Signs of greater voter participation - FinancialExpress
Will the high-decibel and multi-media election campaign of political parties, the swelling of the middle class voters and the involvement of the hitherto-aloof rich in electoral politics raise voter participation this summer? History shows that voter turnout varied between 56% and 62% over the near-two-decades between 1991 and 2009. This period has seen the fortunes of leading political parties reverse. 
Will Jaswant Singh's popularity defeat the BJP's party machinery? - Aman Sethi, Business Standard
Swarth and apmaan, self-interest and dishonour. For a month, the 1.7 million voters of Barmer-Jaisalmer, a sprawling expanse of gravelled sand and stunted shrub along the Rajasthan-Pakistan border, had ruminated on the motives behind this particular electoral contest and now polls were upon them.
Close fight between Congress, BJP on the cards in Karnataka - Pranav Nambiar and Rahul Chandran, Mint
Neither the Congress party nor the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has an edge in Karnataka, which goes to the polls on Thursday. All told, 121 seats across 12 states will be at stake in the fifth phase of polling. By the end of the day, India would have voted for 232 of the 543 parliamentary constituencies.
Advantage Modi in Rajasthan - Elizabeth Roche, Mint
Sherani Abad village, in Nagaur district of Rajasthan, is known as a mini Pakistan because Muslims make up most of its population. The nondescript village of 7,000 people also exemplifies political shifts and realignments in voting patterns of the state with 40 million voters.
Maoists struggle to enforce election boycott in Jharkhand - Anumeha Yadav, Hindu
A dirt track winding through sal-covered hills of Porahat forest give way to a trail deeper into the forest. The steep trail, accessible only on foot for several kilometres, goes past hamlets scattered over the ara serang, red hills, as the tribal villagers refer to the iron-rich earth of Porahat. It opens into a valley where two squads of the banned CPI (Maoist) halted for the day.
Jamiat Ulema Hind asks Muslims to vote tactically to defeat BJP - M Hasan, HT
With politicians of all hues making a beeline for Ulema (clerics) to ensure patronage, Jamiat Ulema Hind (JUH) president Maulana Arshad Madni has called upon Muslims to vote tactically to defeat the BJP. His message, published in an Urdu daily on Wednesday, comes a day before the second phase of polling in western Uttar Pradesh and Rohilkhand (Bareilly division).
West Bengal: Muslims split Muslims - Madhuparna Das, IndianExpress
West Bengal’s Muslim vote looks likely to split, but not in reaction to any “Modi wave”.  A slew of Muslim parties have sprung up recently, trying to woo Muslims away from the Trinamool Congress and the CPM. Just last month, three Muslim parties — Welfare Party of India (WPI), Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI) and the All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF) — formed an alliance and has fielded Muslim candidates in 23 of the 42 seats.
BJP, Bengalís 4th dimension - Subrata Nagchowdhury, IndianExpress
One of the most striking features of the polls in West Bengal this time has been the resurgence of the BJP, now seen as strong enough to impact possibly a third of the state’s 42 seats in various ways. The contest has become four-cornered after years of highly polarised last few elections, which have pitched the Left against either the Congress-TMC or the TMC-BJP.
