- Delhi Results: Work, Not Worship, Says The Voter
If there is one unequivocal message that the mandate from Delhi sends to the ‘pantheon’ of political parties in India, it is that equitable development, or even a semblance of it, gets votes. It could also be a clear signal that people are no longer willing to support negative thoughts, writes Tathagata Satpathy.

- Delhi Results: Kejriwal?s Art And Science Lesson In Taking On BJP
Is politics an art or science? If a politician can dexterously, even perilously, strike a balance between symbolism and arithmetic, i.e. between the art and science, s/he can win power and cement the ideological base. Kejriwal pulled off a near perfect interplay among symbols, arithmetic, power and ideology to shellack Amit Shah’s BJP 62-8 in Delhi’s 70-member legislature. It was a supreme display of canny politics, and for that, he needs to be commended, not condemned, writes Raghav Bahl.

- Delhi Elections: How Congress Went From Numero Uno To Third Wheel
The Congress bettered its performance in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections recording 22-percent vote share, higher than the AAP. A majority of AAP voters chose either BJP or Congress at the Centre, which means that they see it largely as a regional party or a person-centric party and not a national option. On the flip side, one-fourth of Congress’ 2019 Lok Sabha voters said in a CSDS survey that they plan to vote for AAP at the state level, writes Amitabh Tiwari.

- Delhi Elections: How Will Voters Judge Kejriwal?s Shift From Insurgent To Incumbent?
Facing the electorate as an incumbent and as the principal challenger is very different. As a new entrant or the opposition you can promise the moon! However, when the incumbent promises the moon again, voters will first ask for a report card. While the BJP has had to reckon with this dynamic across several states for the last two years, it is also the situation that Arvind Kejriwal and the AAP find themselves in for the first time, as they defend their record in the National Capital Territory of Delhi.

- BJP?s Delhi Dilemma: The National Capital Isn?t A National Election
Candidate nominations for the much-awaited elections in Delhi have been filed. The Aam Aadmi Party, which swept the polls bagging all but three seats in 2015, is hoping to retain power on the back of work it has done on bijli-sadak-paani issues. The Bharatiya Janata Party, on the other hand, is hoping to wrest power highlighting the failures of what it sees as a confrontationist Kejriwal government, writes Amitabh Tiwari.
