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

The curious case of the voter ID card Good for everything but voting

It is ironic that the Voters ID as we know it, is actually an Elector Photo Identity Card, which has been abbreviated by the Central Election Commission itself as EPIC. #Politics #ThatsJustWrong #India #Election Commission #Voter ID #Lok Sabha elections 2014 #Voter ID card #Mumbai Election

Cong can no longer deny it It's drowning under the Modi wave

Is there a Modi wave and is this an election different from others? Or is the imminent thrashing of the ruling party the result of an anti-Congress vote? #Sonia Gandhi #Congress #BJP #Narendra Modi #PoliticsDecoder #Modi #Bhartiya Janata Party #Lok Sabha elections 2014 #Lok Sabha 2014

Not just BJP, Sri Ram Sene Medieval mindsets cut across parties

My point is that medieval mindsets cut across parties and if you're going to castigate politicians for it, reprimand them all. #Politics #India #Congress #BJP #Narendra Modi #Violence against women #Rape #Sri Ram Sene #Women's rights #Lok Sabha elections 2014 #Pramod Muthalik
