Maharashtra polls BJP's imported candidates will be a pain for the loyals

Shiv Sena leader Uddhav Thackeray may have a point when he asks why, if there is indeed a Narendra Modi wave persisting after the tide of favour the party had secured in the Lok Sabha elections, was he going to go on the stump in as many as 25 locations on a blistering pace, all in about nine days from 4 October? #BJP #Narendra Modi #PoliticsDecoder #Uddhav Thackeray #Shiv Sena #Pramod Mahajan #Gopinath Munde #Maharashtra #NCP #Maharashtra Assembly Election 2014

Too many seats not enough candidates? BJP resorts to poaching in Maharashtra

The entire incident bears a striking resemblance to the way the BJP secured candidates from other parties which made the massive win possible because then, people voted for the promised development agenda #Congress #BJP #Narendra Modi #PoliticalPlay #Shiv Sena #Maharashtra #NCP #defections #Maharashtra Assembly Election 2014
Why no opposition will be strong enough for Modi in Lok Sabha

Why no opposition will be strong enough for Modi in Lok Sabha

More interestingly, the 55 or so seats that the allies bring to the National Democratic Alliance give Modi leverage inside the BJP. He can afford to alienate or push away those elements inimical to him or his policies. #HowThisWorks #Sonia Gandhi #Manmohan Singh #BJP #Narendra Modi #Rahul Gandhi #Lok Sabha #parliament #policies #Lok Sabha Election Results 2014

Tradition be damned: President Pranab should vote this election

This idea of not voting to be neutral is a claim to false neutrality. If it were to ensure that he was not accused of taking sides in government formation when no party of no pre-poll alliance won a majority, it appear a logic stretched too far #India #ToTheContrary #Pranab Mukherjee #Congress #BJP #Democracy #President #Rashtrapati Bhavan #Lok Sabha elections 2014

Is the law an ass? Not just Modi, everyone flouts the code of conduct

Would it deem it possible to have the last day for nominations the same across the country and freeze all election related activity by the political parties and their candidates and their well-wishers the moment the polling starts in the first phase? #Politics #India #Congress #BJP #Narendra Modi #Election Commission #Amethi #Priyanka Gandhi #Model code of conduct #Lok Sabha elections 2014 #Lotus Symbol

Why Mumbai's middle class just lost its right to criticise the govt

By and large, Mumbaikars, except those who live in the slums, have lost the right to express displeasure on TV shows, Facebook, Twitter or anywhere else, over issues of governance. #Congress #BJP #Mumbai #NCP #AAP #Mumbai Elections #Mumbai voter turn-out #Mumbai's middle class #Mumbai's slum vote

Both BJP and Cong are only interested in personal gains

But BJP is equally bad (or at best, only slightly better) as Congress. Even if we assume that Modi is honest, BJP as a party is not. #Congress #BJP #LetterstoFP #Aam Aadmi Party #AAP #Lok Sabha elections 2014 #Lok Sabha polls 2014 #Firstpost Community #Elections 2104

BJP needs to ramp up efforts to counter Cong's bag of dirty tricks

The BJP should ramp up their marketing efforts even more, given that elections are on instead of just being satisfied with the current efforts. #Congress #BJP #Narendra Modi #LetterstoFP #Modi
