'Kejriwal, Sisodia and Sanjay of destroying party's chances' - Himanshi Dhawan, Times of India
As the disastrous outcome of the Lok Sabha elections sinks in among the leaders of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), at least two founding members blamed it on the troika of Arvind Kejriwal, Manish Sisodia and Sanjay Singh. Poor ticket selection and quitting the Delhi government in haste are being seen by a section of the leadership as the main reasons for the debacle. 
Jolted by voter swing, AAP forced to rethink - Neha Lalchandani, Times of India
Had the city's April 10 vote elected its new Vidhan Sabha, Aam Aadmi Party would have won only 10 seats, down from 28 in December 2013. And of the original 28, it would have lost 24. This sudden and adverse swing in the city's mood has left AAP leaders worried. The party, which finished second in all seven of the city's Lok Sabha seats, now accepts that it will have to reframe its strategy for the assembly elections in Delhi.
Why some parties got votes aplenty but zero seats - Subodh Varma, Times of India
At the national level, the story of votes (not seats) obtained by various parties and alliances is fairly straightforward. The BJP and its allies got about 38 percent votes, the Congress and its allies got 23 percent, four major regional outfits - SP, BSP, Trinamool and Anna DMK - got about 14 percent votes all together, and the Left got about 5 percent.
Bang on target: Did 100 million new voters do the trick for BJP? - Chetan Chauhan & Prashant Jha, Hindustan Times
The Congress was not decimated as much as its numbers in the final outcome of this summer’s poll suggests but the BJP was able to catch on the imagination of aspiring youth looking for better job leading to additional 100 million votes, thanks to Narendra Modi.
No Proof Required: The Gandhis should resign - Surjit S Bhalla, IndianExpress
Congratulations to Narendra Modi and the BJP for registering a historic victory not only for themselves but for India as well. This election will be a significant departure from history in several other dimensions as well, as historians and political scientists will discuss it over the coming weeks and months and years. For example, the curtain has not yet been dropped on caste politics, but we are nearer that dream reality.
Alone on the frontline, family confirms Modi jibe - Sanjay K Jha and Rasheed Kidwa, Telegraph
Sonia and Rahul Gandhi stepped out after the results to accept responsibility for the party’s worst defeat ever, ending speculation about a party ploy to shield them from blame. While Rahul made a brief statement owning responsibility for the defeat as party vice-president, Sonia dwelt on the expectations from the next government and threw hints of her resolve to fight Narendra Modi on ideological grounds.
One manís incredible journey - Sankarshan Thakur, Telegraph
The last time India elected a single party to rule itself Narendra Modi was an anonymous pracharak of the RSS apprenticing in the debris of devastated barracks. Indira Gandhi’s assassination had handed Rajiv a merciless Lok Sabha majority; his adversaries lay decimated. The BJP had two members of Parliament. There wasn’t much to apprentice with in the Sangh Parivar’s mainstream precincts. It was 1984, a time for solitary reaping in the Opposition’s ransacked ranks.
Modiís moment alone - Pratap Bhanu Mehta, IndianExpress
Narendra Modi has scripted one of the most gloriously spectacular political triumphs in the history of independent India. There is no other way to describe this election. Just think of the magnitude of the achievement. For the first time since Independence, a non-Congress party has got a majority on its own. By enlarging its footprint, it has become a genuinely national party and transformed India’s political landscape, perhaps forever.
Amma shows no karuna, ADMK bags 37 of 39 seats - Times of India
Tamil Nadu saw an unprecedented landslide win for the ruling party in the Lok Sabha polls, a result which has wiped DMK out of the national scene. While exit polls had given AIADMK a clear lead, it has belied all projections with a sweep on the third anniversary of the present regime in TN. Contesting on its own in 39 seats, AIADMK has won 37 seats and emerged the third largest unit in Parliament. The previous best performance by any party in TN had been 31 for Congress in 1962. 
Mulayamís PM dreams dashed, SP tally reduced to Yadav clan - Times of India
The Samajwadi Party has been reduced to what its rivals have often derisively described it as - a private limited party. Only five members of Mulayam Singh Yadav clan could win riding on the 'cycle' ticket. It's a telling capitulation for a party that rules Uttar Pradesh, having been swept to power with a comfortable majority barely two years ago. Behind its debilitating defeat lies a tale of misgovernance, dacadent old-world politics and the misplaced belief that power can leverage votes, irrespective of performance.
