Politics/Nation
Farce in Karnataka - Pioneer
While the Karnataka Congress seems “drunk” on power games, what with its MLAs caught in a nasty brawl with liquor bottles being hurled liberally to decide whether one should stay with the JD(S) government or topple it,  the central Congress leadership must realise that it cannot afford to appear so in its quest for national relevance and must restore a modicum of discipline among party rank and file.
Test of a United India - Amitabh Shukla, Pioneer
As the Lok Sabha election gets tantalisingly close, the season of mahagathbandhan or a grand alliance has started in right earnest. So has flexing of political muscles by what can loosely be called as the anti-Bharatiya Janata Party (anti-BJP) — a conglomeration of diverse regional parties, united by a single agenda of removing the Modi-Shah duo from national politics in the Lok Sabha election.
As BSP-SP join hands, BJP stares at twin challenges in Uttar Pradesh - Hindustan Times
The impact of the Samajwadi Party-Bhaujan Samaj Party (SB-BSP) alliance, and why the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has taken recent decisions — from bringing in a significant constitutional amendment to introduce reservations for economically weaker sections to announcing a cow cess and promising cow shelters for strays — is visible in the cities, towns and villages of Uttar Pradesh.
Will the BSP-SP alliance in Uttar Pradesh be successful? - Badri Narayan, Hindu
I believe that the alliance between the Samajwadi Party (SP) and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) will be successful in Uttar Pradesh. This is not merely an alliance between two parties but between two social bases: the Other Backward Classes (OBCs) and the Dalits. While it is true that both these parties do not command the support of all OBC and Dalit groups, it is also true that the Yadavs, who form the caste base of the SP, constitute a large chunk of the OBC population and are likely to attract other OBCs and Most Backward Classes (MBCs) through social networking. 
Karnataka drama - Pioneer
Who would have thought that the 2019 elections would be a desperate lunge for political posturing before survival with major national parties squabbling over Karnataka yet again, engaging in horse-trading, indulging in allegations and counter-allegations of poaching from each other’s camps and threatening to force mid-term polls with the Lok Sabha one.
Emerging cracks in grand alliance - Kalyani Shankar, Pioneer
While the Opposition has been touting the idea of a mahagadbandhan (grand alliance), what is happening on the ground is entirely different. It is pretty clear now that a grand alliance is most unlikely. Instead, parties are more inclined to opt for State-specific alliances.
The chameleon’s game - Amitabh Shukla, Pioneer
The Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) may be the latest ally to desert the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) on the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2016, introduced in the last session of the Lok Sabha recently, but by no stretch of the imagination can the party be termed as a “political weather scientist.”
Why Modi being more PM than BJP's go-to man is a concern - Indrajit Hazra, Economic Times
It’s always lovely to hear the prime minister refer to himself in the third person. On Saturday, in the concluding speech at BJP’s 2019 national convention at the Ramlila Grounds in New Delhi, the country’s favourite third person singular stated, ‘Ek hawa failti hai ki Modi ayega to sab thik ho jayega. Modi ayega to jeet jayenge. Modi ayega to baazi palat denge.
Mamata’s mega Kolkata rally to test the unity of Opposition - Hari Shankar Vyas, Pioneer
Mamata Banerjee is all set to address a mega rally in Kolkata’s Parade Ground on January 19, and the All India Trinamool Congress (TMC) has set a target to ensure a turnout of 15 lakh people. The rally has a two-pronged purpose: On one hand, it will be Mamata’s show of strength, and on the other, it will be a test of the Opposition’s unity.
The Bua-Bhatija dare - Pioneer
If anybody had any doubt about the absurdness or the incompatibility of the Samajwadi Party-Bahujan Samajwadi Party (SP-BSP) alliance, then their leaders did some straight talking from the word go minus theatrics to show that they mean business. Really mean it.
