Tamil Nadu: Will a multi-cornered contest throw up unexpected winners? - Amrith Lal, Times of India
The run-up to the 2014 election in Tamil Nadu — on April 24 — has been all about alliances being made and unmade. Since the 1970s, electoral politics in Tamil Nadu has revolved around the DMK and AIADMK or the fronts they float. This time the BJP has cobbled a third front of parties with pockets of influence, including S Ramadoss's PMK, Vaiko's MDMK and Vijayakanth's DMDK. An accretion of their votes in favour of the alliance...

Amit Shah ensures UP nominations go through without hitch - Times of India
Selection of party nominees for the politically crucial Uttar Pradesh has long been a source of agony for the BJP leadership. It was more than a decade ago that the party unit in the state, which with 80 Lok Sabha seats fuelled three successive power runs for the Centre, degenerated into a collective of squabbling satrapies, each led by a chieftain who would put his selfish interest above organizational goals.

A veteran journalist and a former diplomat are among the candidates the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has zeroed in on as its contenders for the Capital's seven seats in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. While the party is yet to make the list official amid intense infighting over the coveted candidature, insiders say the names decided on are almost final. From New Delhi - currently represented by former Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit's son Sandeep - the BJP will field Subramanian Swamy, while renowned journalist...

12 reasons to reject Kejriwal - Arindam Chaudhuri, Pioneer
In the few months that the Aam Aadmi Party chief has spent in electoral politics, he has dissappointed those who had hoped he would be an alternate political force in Delhi and also exposed himself as incapable of leading the nation. I  voted for AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal during the Delhi Assembly election, but I had also mentioned then that for the general election, one must vote for Narendra Modi. At that point of time, I had believed that Mr Kejriwal was not (yet) mature enough to be considered for central leadership.

Farmers rooting for BJP in general election: CSDS survey - Ragini Verma & Elizabeth Roche, Mint
A third of farming households, a key electoral constituency, are likely to vote for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the upcoming general election, says a survey conducted by the Centre for the Study of Developing Societies (CSDS) for Bharat Krishak Samaj, a farmers’ association.

Lotus blooms in India's farmlands: CSDS survey shows 30% farmers to vote for BJP - Neetu Chandra, Mail Today
It's a mid-summer harvest the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) can look forward to with relish. Almost a third of the nation's farmers intend to vote for the BJP in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, says an in-depth survey conducted by the Centre for the Study of Developing Societies (CSDS). Only 17 per cent of the 11,000 surveyed people from the farming community-arguably the largest ever such exercise- say they will vote for the Congress party.

Chandrababu Naidu gaining fast on Jagan in race for Seemandhra - Prasad Nichenametla, Hindustan Times
Telugu Desam Party chief Nara Chandrababu Naidu’s grouse was that the Congress-led UPA government had taken the initiative to divide Andhra Pradesh to finish him off politically. Although the bifurcation actually hit him hard in Telangana, with scores of MLAs and leaders joining the Telangana Rashtra Samithi, it seems the TDP, at the same time, is curiously rising from the ashes in Seemandhra. It was much behind the YSR Congress...

Congress Down the Hill in South - Balbir Punj, NewIndianExpress
The short shrift the Congress has now got in the new and prospective state of Telangana from the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) is indicative of the shrinking fortune of the current ruling party at the Centre in the coming elections this summer. After daylong discussions, the TRS decided not to merge with the Congress. As for its alliance with a central party, the TRS has decided that it will be open to negotiations and the BJP is not ruled...

BJP's road to rediscovery in Uttar Pradesh - Aditi Phadnis, Business Standard
Armed with intelligence and insights from the grassroot, the party is rolling out its plan in the state. Narendra Modi's rallies are believed to be the pivot on which BJP's revival rests. The best comment on the state of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Uttar Pradesh came from an 80-year old karyakarta (worker) who insisted he be given a chance to speak. Amid khaats (charpoys) spread out under a big banyan tree, a semi-formal karyakarta sammelan (workers' convention) of the BJP was held in Shamli a few weeks ago.
