The rocky road to 2019 - Kalyani Shankar, Pioneer

Sachin: The Pilot who helped drive Congress to victory in Rajasthan - Hindustan Times
He flies planes, loves to drive and has helped steer the Congress from the depths of defeat in 2013 to the highs of victory in Rajasthan. Sachin Pilot may not become chief minister if the party chooses to appoint the older, more experienced Ashok Gehlot, but the urbane politician, equally at home in a village as in the debating room of an English news channel, has more than earned his electoral stripes, say party leaders.

Former BJP leader Yashwant Sinha who is a bitter critic of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his government's policies at the centre has said that the party's defeat in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh has dispelled the theory of "Modi magic".

If it was not anger against Shivraj Singh Chouhan government, what accounts for BJP's loss in MP? - Akash Bisht, Scroll
From 58 seats in 2013 to 114 seats in 2018, the Congress made a giant leap in Madhya Pradesh, as the final tally of the Assembly elections emerged on Wednesday morning. Most of these seats came from regions where the party had performed poorly in the last elections: Chambal, Mahakoshal and Malwa-Nimar. This is the sole reason why the Congress finished just two seats shy of the majority mark of 116 in the 230-strong Assembly.

High turnout in Madhya Pradesh polls doesn't indicate anti-incumbency or pro-Opposition trend, other factors matter - Debobrat Ghose, Firstpost
The voter turnout or voting percentage in an election is an inadequate indicator of the electorate's choice. Trends in earlier elections reveal that a change in voter turnout — either an increase or decrease — in comparison to previous elections does not necessarily reflect an anti-incumbency or pro-incumbency mood.

Forget development, BJP will fight the 2019 Elections on Faith - Wire
From Sabarimala in the south to the disputed site at Ayodhya in the north, abstract notions of faith are driving the country’s politics. Politics, in the custody of contemporary politicians not just in India but the world over, has whittled down to nothing but a sway of feelings and emotions.
