Elections in five States: Grand alliance talks on hold for now - Hari Shankar Vyas, Pioneer
All talks on the grand alliance of the Opposition parties have been put on the back burner for now, and no one will talk about a united front until the results of elections in five States are out.

Disunity amidst Opposition unity - Kalyani Shankar, Pioneer
