The formation of a Fourth Front by the constituents of the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) — RJD of Lalu Prasad Yadav, Lok Janashakti Party of Ram Vilas Paswan, and SP of Mulayam Singh Yadav — has been interpreted by many as a possible schism within UPA ranks. This has made electoral contestation tri-polar in Bihar and quadrangular in UP.

The DNA peruses Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP's) balance sheets for 2001-06:
The right wing party's income certificates show it collected Rs2.68 crore as Gujarat Relief Fund. But not even a single paisa was disbursed for the cause. More scandalous is the fact that this escaped the notice of income-tax authorities. Whether or not this is an accounting or printing error or there's more to it, is a matter for the relevant government authorities to examine.
The BJP is the second richest political party after Congress with a net worth of Rs102.70 crore in the year 2005-06. The size of the party's balance sheet in the same year is close to Rs112 crore.
In the name of Gujarat Relief Fund, the party collected Rs1.98 crore in 2001-02, followed by Rs2,938 in the next financial year. There were no donations shown under this head in 2003-04. In 2004-05 the party again collected Rs43.86 lakh and Rs26.03 lakh in 2005-06.
