BJP may breach southern fortress - Mail Today
For the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), southern states of India, except Karnataka, have remained a tough terrain. While the BJP has grown leaps and bounds in other parts of the country, electorate in India's south has traditionally preferred a whole gamut of regional parties, besides the Congress and the Left. But it is likely to change in this Lok Sabha election as the recent India Today Group-Cicero survey reveals.

Voters’ fatigue looms over UPA - Liz Mathew, Mint
Across India, there is anger against the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA). The diminished prospects of UPA, as reflected in a series of opinion polls, in the ongoing general election have been attributed to anti-incumbency or voter fatigue with the existing parties in power. The main opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi has been trying to fan the flames of popular resentment against the policies and actions of the government...

Modi glue binds splintered Maharashtra - Shubhangi Khapre, IndianExpress

Allies Give BJP Hope South of Vindhyas Too - K R Balasubramanyam, Economic times
On Sunday, when BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi addressed an election rally at Haveri in Karnataka, that was his 13th in the southern state in the past four months. The 63-year-old Gujarat chief minister is expected to address three more rallies before the state goes to polls on April 17, and this shows the party's focus on turning around its fortunes in a state where it badly lost assembly elections less than a year ago.

Lok Sabha poll purse - Kunal Doley, Indian Express
ELECTIONS TO the world’s largest democracy—as per data released by the Election Commission of India (ECI) on February 14, 2014, there are a total of 81.45 crore registered electors in the country—don’t come cheap. If a recent report is anything to go by, a whopping R30,000 crore is likely to be spent during the ongoing Lok Sabha polls (the figure includes the total poll spending by the government, political parties and candidates), making it by far the most expensive electoral exercise in Indian history.

Hindi belt in Modi's thrall - Rahul Kanwal, Mail Today
Voters are set to give the BJP up to 68 of the 120 seats in these two states, the party's vote share projected to jump by a game-changing 17.5 per cent in Uttar Pradesh and 16.7 per cent in Bihar.

In a tearing Hurry-ana: Why Rahul cannot connect here and why ‘BJP ke donon hathon mein laddu hain’ - Shekhar Gupta, Indian Express
You have to be ridiculously parochial to say something as outrageous as what Haryana thinks today, India thinks tomorrow. Risks rise further when you work out of a newsroom spilling over with Bengalis. But that is an old and truly genuine grievance with us Haryanvis. That we have always been denied our due as real trendsetters for modern India, particularly since the decline of Bengal started, in fields as far apart as politics and sport. Remember, however, that I said trendsetters.

Cong candidates face cash crunch - Subodh Ghildiyal, Times of India
As if the burden of incumbency wasn't enough, Congress's task in the current Lok Sabha polls seems to have been further complicated by what party managers claim is a severe funds crunch, which has put it at a further disadvantage vis-a-vis a resurgent BJP. A Congress heavyweight told this paper, "Between Congress and BJP, they are getting 90% of the money, we are getting just 10%."

2014: The most defining general election since 1977 - Minhaz Merchant, Times of India
The first phase of polling in what could be the most defining general election since 1977 begins on April 7. In many ways this is a difficult election to call: alliances are still being stitched together, candidates are continuing to migrate between parties and the electoral discourse has plumbed new depths. Amidst the cacophony, several clear trends are visible. One, the BJP is likely to register its highest Lok Sabha tally. Two, conversely, the Congress is almost certain to notch up its worst electoral performance since 1952.

The Next Station - Neha Bhatt, Outlook
As a voter walks from home to polling booth—and in a country vast as India, with 815 million voters, he or she could well pass by houses and markets or hills and rivers and ravines—what could be on his or her mind? After days and days of loudspeakers blaring, hoardings and posters looming large, political leaders making repeated pitches, is the Indian voter firm about who to vote for or will it be a last-minute decision?
