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.

Stormy weather awaits India in 2019 - MK Narayanan, Hindu

Citizens as stakeholders - Rajeev Chandrasekhar, Pioneer
We all know that technology, especially the internet, is the major disruptive force that is changing everything and turning every model, known and unknown, on its head. At a basic level, it is connecting the average citizen to information and data and empowering him/her in an unprecedented way — in both good and bad ways. This puts all institutions under pressure to change and adapt — and more so Parliaments and parliamentary representatives.
