Muslim village decides to teach Congress a lesson - Sayli Udas Mankikar, Hindustan Times
In the 2009 Lok Sabha elections, the 5,000-odd voters of Sakhri Nate, a Muslim village, took their day off from fishing activities, sacrificing a day’s earning, to vote for Congress candidate Nilesh Rane. Five years later, the story is different. They have dared Congress leader Narayan Rane and his son Nilesh to enter their village.
Get seats for party or lose your chair, Congress tells its CMs - Aurangzeb Naqshbandi, Hindustan Times
In a tough poll battle, the Congress has put its chief ministers on notice — get the Lok Sabha numbers or be prepared to be replaced. The Congress is in power in 11 states that together account for 151 Lok Sabha seats and a junior partner in ruling coalitions in three others. Main rival the BJP is at the helm in five states and partners the Shiromani Akali Dal in Punjab.
Karnataka: Bipolar battle on cards - S Rajendran, Hindu
The elections to 28 constituencies of the  Lok Sabha in Karnataka portend to be of the same variety that has been witnessed over the last four general elections — a bipolar contest between the Bharatiya Janata Party and the  Congress, although the Janata Dal (Secular) is taking all steps to stay afloat.
Trinamool Congress in West Bengal’s driving seat - Mail Today
The Trinamool Congress is set to bag up to 27 of the 42 Lok Sabha seats in West Bengal, a marginal improvement over its performance in the 2009 election, according to a new survey. The party led by Chief Minister Mamta Banerjee is projected to win 23 to 27 seats and the Congress six to 10 seats, says the India Today- Cicero poll. The Trinamool Congress, which rules West Bengal, had won 19 seats in the last election while the Congress had bagged six.
Without (2)G or J, ‘Rasa’ is on a roll in the Nilgiris - E P Unny, Indian Express
No one refers to him in these parts as “2G Raja”. The man who made much bad news for UPA 2 is “Rasa” to his constituents. Minus the ‘J’ that went with ‘G’, the rhyme is gone, and with it the tainted prefix. Nothing works in Tamil discourse without sound effects. This 50-year-old four-time MP in fact marks the DMK’s 2G: the generational shift from Karunanidhi’s rhyme and reason to cold reason.
Manmohan Singh didn't put wife's name in Rajya Sabha affidavit, says BJP - Economic times
 BJP today claimed Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had not mentioned his wife's name in the affidavit submitted along with nomination he filed as a Rajya Sabha candidate, as the party sought to blunt Congress'attack on Narendra Modi over his marital status. 
Why opinion polls are often wide of the mark - Atul Thakur, Times of India
Going by the media coverage and the results of various opinion polls, it might appear that Narendra Modi's ascent to power in Delhi is almost certain. But an analysis of past five general elections shows that opinion polls tend to overestimate BJP, underestimate Congress and at times go very wrong in assessing regional and smaller parties. 
Deciphering the sound of Mayawati's silence - Pravin Kumar, Times of India
In the cacophony of the boisterous election campaign in Uttar Pradesh, a key player has chosen to keep virtually silent. When you travel across UP, you will rarely hear loudspeakers belting out BSP songs (unlike the SP or BJP), neither will you see its banners, posters or TV ads. Nor does anyone from BSP participate in TV debates. 
AAP admits it is badly stretched - Himanshi Dhawan, Times of India
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leadership has admitted that it has spread itself too thin in this Lok Sabha election and that might affect its performance. This admission by party's political affairs committee member Prashant Bhushan comes soon after Arvind Kejriwal agreed that his decision to resign from the Delhi government was ill-timed as it gave the impression that he was running away from responsibility.
Aam Aadmi Party? 86 crorepatis and counting - Brajesh Kumar, HindustanTimes
Of the 200 people contesting on an AAP ticket — in the first five phases of the Lok Sabha elections — an astounding 86 have declared assets worth more than a crore, according to a report by the Association for Democratic Rights, a poll watchdog. Leading the pack is the party’s candidate from Bangalore Central and former Infosys CFO V Balakrishnan with Rs. 189 crore.
