Words without meaning - Amitabh Shukla, Pioneer
After Priyanka Gandhi Vadra’s entry into active politics, our grand old party, the Congress, looks energised, motivated and has the momentum on its side to face the 2019 Lok Sabha election. Of course, it has been helped in no small measure by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which now looks jaded, carries the disadvantage of anti-incumbency and is seemingly devoid of the same energy and enthusiasm that marked the party’s campaign throughout 2013 till the 2014 general election.
Pakistan has shown no interest in addressing terror concerns - Hindustan Times
Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan chose to talk about the brazen suicide attack at Pulwama only five days after the assault claimed by Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed, attributing the timing to his country’s preoccupation with a crucial visit by the Saudi crown prince.

While neighbouring Pakistan needs to be taught a lesson for sponsoring terrorist attacks in Kashmir, the need is to also address the Kashmir problem internally. There can be no doubt that there are many things that need attention, including the radicalisation of the youth in the State.
Being deceived, everytime - Prafull Goradia, Pioneer

Jokers in the pack - Ishan Joshi, Pioneer
First, let’s get the obvious out of the way. Government-formation after the 2019 general election will depend on the numbers. Not ideology, not alliances and certainly not personal chemistry between political leaders; these will be played out during the election. It’s when the votes are counted that, depending on the tally of various political parties/groupings, it will be decided who will lead the next Government of India.
Does Priyanka have sanjeevini? - Kalyani Shankar, Pioneer
Priyanka Gandhi Vadra has taken charge as Congress General Secretary responsible for eastern Uttar Pradesh last week. The state is not new to her as she has campaigned earlier also in some parts apart from looking after her mother Sonia Gandhi’s constituency Rae Bareilly and her brother Rahul Gandhi’s stronghold Amethi for years. Home to 80 Lok Sabha seats, UP sends the highest number of lawmakers to Parliament, making it a key electoral battleground.
Treading a dangerous path - A Surya Prakash, Pioneer
While there have been several instances of confrontation between the Union Government and a State over jurisdictional issues over the last seven decades, what happened in Kolkata recently was clearly unprecedented.
Civilisational continuity - Sandhya Jain, Pioneer
