Breaking the status quo - M Venkaiah Naidu, Hindu
Change is the key for progress.

Coming in the aftermath of its candidate Harjeet Singh losing his deposit in the Rajouri Garden by-poll, its failure to win Punjab and discomfiture in Goa, the AAP’s future prospects appear in jeopardy. The law of averages seems to have caught up with party’s abnormal rise. Whether it will be able to reverse the trend in the 2020 Delhi Assembly election, only time can tell.

A new work culture, finally... - Tavishi Srivastava, Pioneer
For Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath to run an administration, is certainly not new. He had been heading the Gorakhnath Peeth in Gorakhpur since the last few decades.
