Cong's Gujarat pillar falls - Nayan Dave, Pioneer
The Congress’ trouble continues to mount. After several of its MLAs in Gujarat, Goa and Maharashtra were reported to have cross-voted in favour of the NDA presidential candidate Ram Nath Kovind, Leader of Opposition (LoP) in Gujarat Assembly and former Gujarat Chief Minister Shankersinh Vaghela created a political upheaval by announcing his decision to quit the party. 
Life comes a full circle for Gujarat strongman Shankersinh Vaghela - DP Bhattacharya, Economic Times

On BJP's radar: Kerala and Bengal - Rajdeep Sardesai, Hindustan Times
When a few days ago, Delhi BJP leader Nupur Sharma tweeted pictures of the 2002 Gujarat riots and attempted to pass them off as Bengal 2017, she was only being a loyal party soldier.

Rahul Gandhi in a quandary on party's leadership in States - Hari Shankar Vyas, Pioneer
Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi appears to be continuing with his experimentation. First, he experimented with appointments of presidents of the NSUI and the Youth Congress through elections. It is another matter that only the prodigies of veteran leaders won. Soon, the process was abandoned. Now, ahead of finalising appointments in various State organisations he has resorted to surveys.
