December 7, 2022 18:57

On the eve of counting in Gujarat, where the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has invested enormously in its pursuit of acquiring the status of a national party, the AAP scored a victory in the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) polls on Wednesday.

September 24, 2022 15:08

New Delhi, Sept. 23: As the process for the election of the Congress president kicks in on Saturday with the filing of nominations, the whirligig of events will have a bearing on where the party is headed. First, the will of the Gandhis should prevail yet again. The party’s narrative still revolves around the Gandhi […]

August 17, 2022 19:35

At long last, the BJP reset its central parliamentary board as well as the central election committee, indicating Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s intent to straighten out the creases in certain poll-bound states as well as do the balancing act in some others. The 11-member parliamentary board is the BJP’s apex-decision panel on political and organisational […]

For BJP It’s Southward Ho!

July 7, 2022 11:00

The BJP has set its gaze, resolute and focussed, on the five southern states before the 2024 Lok Sabha elections although its prospects to make gains still remain doubtful, given the lack of leadership in some, the state of the party organisation and the demography. However, true to its character in the Narendra Modi-Amit Shah […]

Maharashtra’s Political Saga Has A Dramatic & Unexpected Denouement

June 30, 2022 21:28

The latest political saga in Maharashtra—which began with a rebellion in the Shiv Sena against Uddhav Thackeray, spearheaded by Eknath Shinde—climaxed in the elevation of Shinde as the chief minister and not Devendra Fadnavis, the former CM, pitched as the favourite of a large section of the BJP. Shinde, once critical to Uddhav for his […]

June 26, 2022 16:40

The BJP largely retained its winning streak in the Lok Sabha and assembly by-polls, the results of which are coming in today. The BJP’s biggest success was in Uttar Pradesh, where it smashed two Samajwadi Party (SP) bastions, Rampur and Azamgarh.  The SP had won both Rampur and Azamgarh in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. […]

Presidential Election: NDA’s Safe Choice, Droupadi Murmu Versus Opposition’s Debatable Nominee, Yashwant Sinha

June 22, 2022 12:27

There was not much surprise in the selection of Droupadi Murmu as the BJP-led NDA’s presidential candidate. Murmu was expected to be the NDA’s nominee back in 2017 itself but apparently the BJP brass vetoed the choice because it wanted her to have a longer span in public life before she occupied Rashtrapati Bhavan. Murmu […]

Rajya Sabha Elections’ Outcome: Smart Management Versus Sloppy Showing

June 11, 2022 11:02

In the end smart management trumped factionalism, ego clashes and a lack of coordination among the allies. The BJP managed to get the better of the Congress in Maharashtra, Karnataka and Haryana in the elections for 16 Rajya Sabha seats that were billed as a show of strength of sorts for the ruling party/coalition governments […]

Rahul Gandhi’s Assertion That Only Congress Can Take On BJP Is Far Removed From Ground Realities

May 17, 2022 17:11

The Congress’s three-day “chintin shivir” may have addressed itself to aspects concerning structural reforms within the party, effective communications management and connecting with people—hackneyed ideas which were looked into in the past by various party panels —but Rahul Gandhi’s assertion that the regional parties were not good enough to confront the BJP is far removed […]

Former Gujarat Bureaucrat, Arvind Sharma, Is Finally In Yogi Adityanath’s Cabinet

March 25, 2022 22:17

In 2017, he was anointed as the chief minister after his cheerleaders staged a show of strength on the streets when the BJP chewed over names to lead the legislature party. In 2022, he was elected as the chief minister painlessly because it was thought he had “earned” his spurs over the past five years. […]

Looking Ahead At UP: Is Akhilesh Yadav’s Speculated Move To Resign As A Newly Elected MLA And Keep His Lok Sabha Seat Ill-Advised?

March 14, 2022 15:09

An electoral setback can rattle the most confident and seasoned of politicians. Akhilesh Yadav conducted himself through the Uttar Pradesh assembly election with the chutzpah of a winner and even dared to call it out in the Samajwadi Party (SP)’s favour after the fifth stage of the eight-phase polling. The SP chief is understandably desolate. […]

Uttar Pradesh Elections: The Raja Of Kunda Is Up Against A Challenge From The SP For The First Time Ever

March 3, 2022 18:50

Kunda: To Uttar Pradesh’s political parties, barring the once spunky Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), his name was an alias for terror, intimidation and brutality. Yet, they valued him because he was a friend in need. He never lost an election ever since he fought his first one in 1993. He did business with the BJP […]

Base Gaya: Saffron Party Seems To Have Lost It In The First Phase

February 12, 2022 20:12

Baghpat/Loni/Sahibabad The Jat Bhawan on the Delhi-Saharanpur highway in Baghpat town is the socio-political epicentre of this dominant community that still calls the shots in parts of western Uttar Pradesh. Today, the normally busy and buzzing Jat headquarter was deserted because everybody, including the office-bearers of the Jat Mahasabha, were out to ensure a high […]

Akhilesh Yadav, Chaudhary Jayant Singh Put Up Joint Show In Western UP After Akhilesh’s Chopper Takeoff From Delhi Gets “Inexplicably” Delayed

January 28, 2022 21:12

A “potli” (bundle) of grains encased in red cloth in hand, Samajwadi Party (SP) leader Akhilesh Yadav repeated the vows he had first taken in Lucknow on January 17, in the presence of a farmer Tejinder Singh Birk, who was among those wounded in October when an SUV, driven by Ashish Mishra, the son of […]

BJP’s Other “Parivar”: Loves To Split Legacy Political Clans

January 19, 2022 17:14

Nothing delights the RSS-BJP more than splitting political estates and breaking up legacy families. It’s about creating splinter “parivars” (families) rather than repose power and command in one central figure, the patriarch or the matriarch or the heir, as with the Samajwadi Party (SP) of Uttar Pradesh, which is helmed by Akhilesh Yadav. This morning, […]

BJP’s Social Base Cracks In UP

January 13, 2022 12:45

Defections and cross-over are par for the course before an election and more so in a state like Uttar Pradesh where politics is the lifeblood of survival of a large, extended community that depends on it in one way or another. However, the turn-around rarely added up to a revolt. Individuals left the parties they […]

January 11, 2022 22:07

Has Mamata Banerjee Punched Above Her Weight?

November 26, 2021 09:13

Mamata Banerjee has fanned out across the country, in search of a political step forward, after her triumph in the West Bengal assembly elections. Her stopovers in places as far away from the east as Goa in the west created a perception that the Trinamool Congress Party (TMC) president and chief minister has punched above […]

November 3, 2021 13:27

The outcome of the 32 by-elections—29 assembly and three parliamentary—were a mixed bag for the BJP and the ruling NDA coalition. The BJP managed to retain its supremacy in Assam and Madhya Pradesh and breached the Telangana Rashtra Samithi’s dominance over Telangana but yielded ground in Himachal Pradesh, Haryana and Dadra and Nagar Haveli and […]
