Lok Sabha elections: In hub of illegal migration, battle isbetween Mamata Banerjee and PM Modi - Times of India

Expecting NDA to fall short, Opposition leaders begin post-result planning - Manoj CG, Indian Express
While counting of votes is still a fortnight away and 118 Lok Sabha seats are still to go to the polls, opposition parties have begun strategising for the post-verdict scenario and possibilities.

Political common sense behind Priyanka Gandhi's pullout from Varanasi - Aman Sharma, Economic Times
She sparked feverish speculation by asking whether she should contest from Varanasi, followed it up by saying she could and that she was ready if her party wanted her to, kept the pot simmering by saying her party would decide and that she would contest if her brother, the party president, asked her to — only to shatter the suspense four weeks later with her party’s revelation that she wouldn’t be contesting after all.

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.

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.

Arvind Kejriwal may be the chief minister of Delhi but he is actually from Hisar in Haryana. There is therefore now an interesting twist to the alliance permutation between Congress and AAP.

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. The DMK-Congress alliance began as a sure winner, adding the CPI, CPI (M), Viduthalai Siruthai (VCK), Vaiko’s MDMK and others to their rainbow alliance.
