A.K. Verma in the Indian Express:
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. Many think that the decision of the Congress to put up candidates in all the constituencies in UP and Bihar would harm the interests of both Congress and these allies, and help the BSP- BJP in UP and BJP-JD (U) in Bihar.

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.
