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

Maharashtra: Congress, NCP, BJP, Shiv Sena shred faith in coalition politics

Sena and BJP, Congress and NCP are making for what can be described an unseemly spectacle. If they quarrel now, can they be trusted to work together later? #Prime Minister #Congress #Narendra Modi #Bharatiya Janata Party #ConnectTheDots #Prithviraj Chavan #Ajit Pawar #Congress-NCP #Natwar Singh #Maharashtra Assembly Elections 2014

Mixing religion and politics Will cops crack down on misuse of Ganpati fest?

The Thane police have issued notices to Ganpati mandals saying mandals are religious places and should not be used for politicking. #InMyOpinion #Mumbai #Maharashtra #Ganesha #Ganpati #Lokmanya Tilak #Maharashtra Assembly Elections 2014 #Ganpati mandals

High court comes tough on illegal hoarding, will civic bodies comply?

Politicians, and more often their followers, put them up either to proclaim their own or their leaders birthdays or appointments either in government or to some nominal post within the partys borough branch itself. They curry favour with leaders, thanking them for support. #Congress #InMyOpinion #Shiv Sena #Bombay High Court #Election Commission of India #Maharashtra Navnirman Sena #Illegal hoardings #civic bodies

A call to arms Modi offers window to push liberal agenda

What does the stupendous victory of the Narendra Modi-led BJP in the recent elections mean for Indias liberals - the genuine liberals, not the left-of-centre variety? #Narendra Modi #InMyOpinion #Sangh Parivar #Modi #liberals #Bhartiya Janata Party #Elections 2014 #Lok Sabha elections 2014 #Election results 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
