Nitish Kumar trying hard to prove he's the boss in Bihar - Hari Shankar Vyas, Pioneer
The BJP top brass is trying to find a counter move against the manoeuvring of its ally in Bihar, the JDU.

Does an everyone else-versus-Modi approach actually help the BJP in the long run? - Rohan Venkataramakrishnan, Scroll
The Congress seems to have made a decision. Its political resolution at the start of the year said the party would follow a “pragmatic approach” when dealing with potential allies. But it was the results in Karnataka in May, and the bye-polls in Uttar Pradesh this year, that seem to have cinched it.
