Modi wave sinks Akhilesh, Rahul and Maya in UP 11.3.2017 TOI: Home
The BJP swept the Uttar Pradesh state polls today - call it the 'Modi wave' or the 'saffron wave' . The result mirrors the 2014 Lok Sabha battle, which the BJP won by a majority. The party didn't project a chief ministerial candidate, and most people today - after definitive leads came in - started talking about a 'Modi win' in UP rather than a 'BJP win.' Two exit polls - Aaj Tak and Today's Chanakya predicted a BJP sweep - but most others said the poll would be too close to call. In the end, the BJP had the last laugh.

The Nitish Kumar-led Janata Dal-United (JD-U) has decided to fight municipal corporation election in the Capital and their main target are the Purvanchali voters in the city. To that end, Bihar Chief Minister Kumar will be holding a massive rally in Delhi's Ramlila Maidan on February 26. Kumar's decision may cut into Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party's (AAP) Purvanchali vote bank. "The CM will hold a massive rally on February 26.

In an executive meeting held on Sunday, JD-U announced that it will fight the polls on all 272 wards. Interestingly, this will be first time that AAP will ...
