BJP’s vote to seat conversion rate is stunning - Louise Tillin, Indian Express
The saffron wave that has crashed across the electoral map of western, central and northern India creates the impression that the BJP has swept all before it. The BJP’s performance is certainly unprecedented. With just under one in three of all voters choosing the party, the BJP has managed to win over half of all seats in the Lok Sabha. With its alliance partners in the NDA, the party controls just over 60 per cent of the seats. It is the first time since 1984 that a single party has won a straight-out majority in Parliament.

Voters from all quarters back BJP - Mail Today
The BJP significantly increased its vote share in virtually every segment of the demographic chart as it powered its way to victory under the leadership of Narendra Modi, becoming the first party in three decades to have an outright majority in the Lok Sabha. Whether it was gender, castes, age groups or the rural-urban divide, the BJP picked up more voters in all spheres, according to the India Today Group-Cicero post-poll analysis. The BJP bagged 282 seats in the lower House of Parliament...

BJP creates history - and how - Ravish Tiwari, Financial Express
RIDING a wave of anger and frustration with the UPA government, Narendra Modi Friday led the BJP to an unprecedented victory in the Lok Sabha elections. Its tally of 282 seats marks the end of successive coalition governments since 1989. The Congress was decimated, drawing a blank in seven states and not entering double digits in any, in its worst performance ever. The NDA together won 336 seats. “India has won! Bharat ki vijay. Achchey din aane waale hain,” tweeted Modi.

Modi landslide buries Cong - HindustanTimes
Narendra Modi wrested the top job in the country on Friday as a saffron wave swept most of India, lifting the Bharatiya Janata Party to its highest-ever tally and leaving the Congress in tatters. Underlining the humiliation of India's oldest party, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi had to scrap hard to beat the BJP's Smriti Irani in the Gandhi family bastion of Amethi, while several senior ministers bit the dust.

The rise of the cityzen - R Srinivasan, BusinessLine
To my mind, the most significant political achievements in the just-concluded elections were, first and foremost, Narendra Modi’s success in breaking through traditional barriers of geography and language, and managing to get his message to resonate with voters — even if in pockets in some cases — across the country. This is a signal feat.

NDA to top 300 seats: LensOnNews Post-poll forecast - GVL Narasimha Rao, LensOnNews
LAST WEEK NARENDRA Modi exclaimed ‘Dil mangey more’, saying he wanted not just 272-plus but a comfortable majority in the Lok Sabha, enough to provide a strong government; and Rajnath Singh predicted he was confident of getting 300-plus seats for the NDA. It looks like their wishes are likely to be fulfilled: a LensOnNews Post-poll Survey just released projects an impressive tally of 303 seats for the NDA in the Lok Sabha, with the BJP alone getting an all-time high of 253 seats. The UPA is likely to end up...

An open letter from an ‘irresponsible’ citizen - Amol Palekar, Mint
I have not spoken about the reason(s) for my intervention in the writ petition challenging the EC’s deletion of names from the voters’ list. This has enabled the Government to trot out its self-serving version in the media. Unfortunately, the involvement of a “celebrity” tinges the news with an adversarial colour; hence, my version! Without believing in conspiracy theories by a political party, I tried to verify the facts revolving around deletion of my name and reviewed the concerned documents.

Why is there no Amethi model of deveopment? - MJ Akbar, Sunday Guardian
Is there a high quality dramatist hidden in the calendar department of the Election Commission? This general election has been a nine-act drama. Inevitably, one or two passages were devoid of the intensity with which play began. But not even Shakespeare could have devised a denouement as spiriting as the one that marks the end of play. On the second last day of polling there was Amethi. And the last votes will be punched in at Varanasi.

Anywhere voting is almost here - Namrata Joshi, Outlook India
Former president A.P.J. Abdul Kalam in his book Governance for Growth in India points out that in the near future, we could well be voting from our mobile phones. In a recent interview to Outlook (‘Talk about things you will do, don’t insult individuals’, Apr 28), he had said: “You should be able to get all the data about your candidate electronically—how much property he holds, how much tax he pays. And yes, as long as the secrecy is maintained, you can definitely vote electronically too.”

Modi up & away in Varanasi - MailToday
BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi is leaps and bounds ahead of his rivals in the crucial Lok Sabha constituency of Varanasi, with a new survey predicting he will bag 56 per cent of the votes in the holy city.
