A Mulayam transition - Pioneer
One may call it opportunistic but when is politics anything but? One may have doubted the possibilities of the mahagathbandhan but this is one alliance in Uttar Pradesh (UP) that has subsumed the hostilities, rivalries and egos of its partners to wage a counter dharm yudh, that of the oppressed, the backwards and Dalits, against the ruling raj of the privileged Thakurs.
Phase 2 of polling will decide on how the opposition shapes up against BJP - Vicky Nanjappa, One India
In the 2014 elections, the BJP had won 27 out of the 95 seats. Six seats went to the NDA partners. The Congress on the other hand won only 12 of these 95 seats, while its UPA partners bagged three seats. This means that 47 of the remaining seats went to the non NDA and non UPA parties.

Why Tamil Nadu no longer seems a walkover for DMK-Congress combine - Venkatesh Kannaiah, Indian Express
The Tamil Nadu elections started off as a one-sided affair.

Why Mayawati made a strong appeal to Muslims to not split their votes between Congress, Gathbandhan - News18
Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati’s call to Muslims to ensure there is no split of community votes between the Gathbandhan and Congress has baffled many.
