RLD chief pins hope on SP, Cong 13.1.2017 deccanherald.com
Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD) chief Ajit Singh, after being abandoned by Bihar Chief Minister and JD(U) president Nitish Kumar, is banking heavily on a possible alliance with the SP and the Congress in the Assembly polls in Uttar Pradesh. RLD leaders, like the Congress, have been keenly observing the developments in the rival SP camps, and are awaiting the poll panel's decision on the party's cycle symbol. "We can comment on the possibility of an alliance with the SP only after the Election Commission's decision on the symbol. We feel that secular forces should unite to fight the BJP," Ajit's son Jayant Chaudhary said, addressing a party workers' meeting at Meerut on Friday. Ajit has called for the formation of an "alliance of like-minded parties" to take on the BJP in the polls. Earlier, Nitish had dropped hints that his party was not averse to joining hands with the RLD to "defeat the communal forces". But of late, Nitish has been cosying up to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, triggering speculation that JD(U) ...

Local leaders for BJP campaign 12.1.2017 deccanherald.com
The BJP will not deploy leaders from outside Uttar Pradesh (UP) for campaigning in the state as it did in Bihar and Delhi Assembly elections. A decision has been taken to push local leaders or if need be, outsiders with roots in UP for election duties, said a source in the party. The BJP's earlier electoral strategy of carpet bombing outside leaders for micro-management did not go down well in Delhi and Bihar as the party's local leadership and cadres had interpreted the move as a reflection of distrust on their ability to deliver. In both the states, which the BJP lost badly, the central leadership had deployed Union ministers and non-native cadres in each of the Assembly constituencies to strengthen the local party network, which it felt was weaker than that of the opponents. In fact, in Bihar, the BJP had devised a much more structured and overarching management construct by dividing the party into different sectors and brought in senior leaders from the party and the RSS to work as a bridge between ...
