Where’s My Lantern?

  • The hate speeches from the BJP fringes have led to an anti-Modi wave, which could badly hit the chances of the BJP-LJP combine
  • Voting along caste lines and a consolidation of the Muslim votes behind Laloo could see the RJD making a strong comeback
  • JD(U) may fail to benefit mainly due to the complacency factor, which has led to indifferent candidate selection. Anti-incumbency too is a factor.

“If a son errs, give him a slap or two but don’t throw him out of the house,” pleads Ramvilas Paswan at a rally. Paswan knows he is fighting with his back to the wall but his pleas don’t seem to cut much ice. Mohammed Shahid Raza, a long-time Paswan loyalist, says, “There was a time when this same ground would be filled to capacity with people to hear Paswanji. Today, there are more vehicles than people.” Indeed, there are more schoolchildren eyeing his helicopter and discussing its finer points than people listening to his dispirited pitch.
