How the growing up process of the 53-year-old Congress princeling remains incomplete
An Opposition alliance has unseated a strong incumbent at the Centre only when it has had a promise to sell and a charismatic leader. The anti-Modi alliance has neither while its own contradictions threaten to pull it apart
What Modi did emphasise was the Centre’s concerted efforts to connect the Northeast to the rest of India in every way. He cast the spotlight on Congress policies that stoked separatism and led to prolonged civilian distress by way of blockades and strikes
The respondents considered Modi a strong and charismatic leader who alone could stand up to a belligerent China and a hostile Pakistan
Can the grand alliance of the Opposition survive its inbuilt contradictions before taking on the ruling coalition led by Modi at his peak?
