Delhi: AAP, Cong get talking again to keep BJP out - Aurangzeb Naqshbandi, HindustanTimes
Back-channel negotiations between the Congress and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) over government formation in Delhi are underway following assessment in both political outfits that the BJP could be major gainer in case elections are held in the Capital in the near future.
OBC support for BJP signals the end of caste politics - Sanjeer Alam, Hindu
The Other Backward Classes (OBCs) comprise a multitude of disparate castes, sub-castes and traditional occupational groups. Accounting for about 41 per cent of the population of the country (National Sample Survey Organisation, 2004-05), they form the largest socio-political bloc. As National Election Study data show, most of the OBC votes during the past two decades have gone to regional and/or “social justice” parties. How did the OBCs vote in 2014?
The road ahead for the Election Commission - N Gopalaswami, Hindu
The Election Commission’s submission of the list of elected MPs to the President on May 18 brought down the curtain on the general election to the 16th Lok Sabha. A vigorous campaign that began well with sparkling wit, barbs and repartee however deteriorated over time. From the announcement of elections till the last date of polls, the EC seized, among other miscellaneous items, Rs. 313 crore in cash, a staggering amount of liquor valued at Rs.1000 crore, 1.85 lakh kg of narcotics and more alarmingly, 145 kg of heroin. 
How Congress lost Assam - Abheek Barman, EconomicTimes
Till May 15, Assam, with 14 Lok Sabha seats, the most electorally significant state in the northeast, was considered a Congress stronghold. Chief minister Tarun Gogoi had won three elections, his party had a well-oiled machinery and plenty of developmental work seemed to have been done in the state. And the Congress controlled seven of the 14 Lok Sabha seats. Gogoi was so confident of doing well that he promised to quit if Congress got less than seven seats in the polls.
10% Muslims voted for BJP in Uttar Pradesh: Survey - Mohammed Anas, Sunday Guardian
Around 10% Muslims in Uttar Pradesh voted for the Bharatiya Janata Party, says a post-poll survey conducted by the Centre for Study of Developing Societies (CSDS). The survey, which was based on random sampling techniques, studied the manner in which different social groups voted to give the BJP an unprecedented surge in UP.
Twitter to copy Indian election strategy in US - Aditya Kalra, Asian Age
US social networking company Twitter is planning to replicate parts of its India election strategy across countries that go to the polls this year, after it emerged as a key tool for politicians and media companies during the world’s largest democratic exercise.
We couldn't match Modi's aggressive campaigning: Jairam Ramesh - Subodh Ghildiyal, Times of India
Amid a fierce post-defeat blame game in the Congress, party strategist Jairam Ramesh said BJP leader Narendra Modi's aggressive campaigning more than anything else proved to be the knockout blow for the grand old party. 
The wave nobody assessed correctly - Narender Kumar, Pioneer
As Prime Minister-designate Narendra Modi will take oath of office and secrecy day after tomorrow, questions about the authenticity and methodology of exit polls — none but Todays-Chanakya came close to the actual figure obtained by the BJP — seem to have been buried till the next general election. However, the overwhelming mandate for the Modi Government, a fact supporting the “contested” Modi wave in the country, warrants a post-mortem of the exit polls which have become a routine exercise after the elections.
Decoding a campaign: How Amit Shah conquered UP - Ratan Mani Lal, FirstPost
It was a long, meticulous operation guided by sound strategy. Uttar Pradesh, the battleground state caught in a maze of caste and communal equations, needed a special approach and a special emphasis if the BJP had to score an impressive victory. Finally, it was much more than impressive: 71 out of the state’s 80 seats beat even the expectations of the men who made it a reality.
Bihar: interpreting the massive mandate - Sanjay Kumar, Hindu
The remarkable victory of the BJP alliance (31 seats), the poor performance of the Rashtriya Janata Dal-Congress alliance (7 seats) and the dismal display by the Janata Dal (United) (2 seats) seem to be the highlight of the recent Lok Sabha election from Bihar.
