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?

Corporate funding to political parties through electoral trusts - Financial Express
Circa 1996, when the Tatas first floated their electoral trust for funding political parties, a model that was adapted from Germany, it was seen as an idea that was way ahead of its time. Around 18 years down the line, and as the country gears up for the 16th Lok Sabha elections, corporate India is making a beeline for setting up electoral trusts, with the Registrar of Companies (RoC) witnessing as many as 14 such entities till date.

UPA's dark decade of governance: BJP chargesheet - Times of India
Charging the UPA government with "failure on all fronts," BJP on Friday held the ruling coalition and Congress responsible for running the economy into the ground, eroding the authority of the Prime Minister's Office and presiding over mega scams. BJP released a "chargesheet" against the Manmohan Singh government ahead of its manifesto release slated for Monday and accused the Congress leadership of Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi of exercising power without responsibility.

Bihar is not caste in stone any longer - D K Singh, IndianExpress
While the Congress harps on what it says is the “exclusionary” ideology of the BJP and its prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi to turn the 2014 elections into a secular-versus-communal contest, people in Bihar seem to view Modi more as an agent of change than a face of aggressive Hindutva. And his appeal appears to be transcending even age-old caste prejudices as a significant section of the OBCs and EBCs prepare to abandon their patron politicians to effect a change at the Centre.

Bihar: Nitish squeezed out between BJP, Cong-Lalu combine - Ayeshea Perera, FirstPost
Nitish Kumar cannot be a happy man. Barely a year ago, he was riding high. Reacting to the BJP decision to push Narendra Modi to the forefront of its electoral campaign, the Bihar Chief Minister - who clearly saw himself on par with his Gujarat counterpart - exited the NDA alliance after a 17-year relationship. At the time of the exit, the move was perceived to be a massive blow to the NDA. For the BJP, the exit of the JD(U) from the NDA alliance...

In Seelampur with - Sunil Sethi, BusinessStandard
There are a couple of good indicators that make a political rally go in the capital: one is the extent and orderliness of the security bandobast; the other is the sheer strength of media attendance. On both counts, Narendra Modi's meeting in Seelampur in Delhi's North-East constituency on Wednesday evening was an example of the strategic advance planning and adroit stage management that mark the selling of a prime minister in 2014.

Gulf in Congress, MPs’ cash claims to EC - Ananya Sengupta, Telegraph
Many Congress MPs may seem uninterested in acknowledging their debt to their party, going by their expenditure statements to the Election Commission after the 2009 general election. President Pranab Mukherjee, for instance, said he received no money from the Congress to fight the 2009 polls, according to National Election Watch, a wing of the Association for Democratic Reforms that has collated many candidates’ and parties’ affidavits to the poll panel.

In Varanasi, it's Modi vs local, not Modi vs Kejriwal - Mihir S Sharma, BusinessStandard
Arvind Kejriwal is travelling to Varanasi to hear what it has to say to him. Well, the narrow streets of this town do indeed have a message for Kejriwal – but it might not be one he wants to hear. “Delhi’s people gave him a job to do,” says Ramesh, who sells vegetables on the street near Dasaswamedh Ghat. “But he quit that job. Why should I give him another?”

Voters’ choice - Financial Express
Economic growth does matter for voting a party, and candidates with more wealth have better chances of winning. Surprisingly, the victory rate of candidates with more criminal cases is higher than those with clean records. A detailed analysis done by Arvind Panagariya and Poonam Gupta from the 2009 Lok Sabha elections data shows that percentage of the incumbent party’s candidates winning the elections in high growth...

Modi is deserving of the throne - Arindam Chaudhuri, Pioneer
I am a student of economics and I do not necessarily buy Mr Narendra Modi’s highly publicised theories of development. Nor am I being paid by him, as the gaumless Aam Aadmi Party supporters bombing my Facebook page doltishly claim, even as the popularity of AAP plummets to new lows with each new immature statement and puerile act from its chief Arvind Kejriwal (the latest being that he will jail all those media people who write against him). But it’s very clear to me that the nation has been fooled for far too long...
